Fri. - Nova Scotia

Today is Friday, so they're in Nova Scotia. Hope the Fall leaves are in full color for them.

Guess this lighthouse is going to save their ship from crashing on the rocks.

Beautiful scenery up there.

Sure hope they didn't have to sail anywhere close to these things!!!

These are all very pretty, but we're ready for them to come home!!!!

Just 2 more days - we're counting!

Wed. - Newfoundland

Here are some pictures we found of Newfoundland. This looks like a fun place to be.

More water for fishing. . . . .

Here's an iceberg for packing fish to bring home to us!!!!

Trixie might like these heights, but not Tom and Phoebe.

We love all these wonderful fishermen who go out to get fishies to make us stinky goodness!!

Tues. - At Sea

We found some pictures of the Norwegian Jewel on the intertubes and thought we'd show you how Crazy Lady and D.C. are living these days.

We're pretty sure they're not using the pool much in Iceland!!!

Don't think they're partying too late each night.

We don't know who decorated this ship, but we sure hope Crazy Lady and D.C. aren't getting sea sick because of the carpet!!!!

Sunday - Iceland

Today they're in Iceland. Doesn't sound like any place we'd like to be!! Brr-r-r-r!!!

These are thermal pools and would be very, very nice for warm swimming. . . . . IF you liked WATER!!!!!!

We love to see all these little fishing villages, 'cause we just know that they're bringing us home some fish!

Nice grass! We'd like to run and play there for a while.

Friday - Lerwick, Shetland Islands

This is where we need to tell you folks that we have Googled all these photos. Crazy Lady and D.C. haven't sent us any of theirs yet. So, we have been surfing the intertubes to see where they are each day.

This is Lerwick, Scotland which is in the Shetland Islands. Looks like many of the streets that they took pictures of in England when they were there 2 years ago.

The Shetland Islands are part of Scotland, but they originally belonged to Norway many, many years ago. There are many Norwegian traditions still left in the Shetland Islands and they incorporate a lot of Norwegan words in their language. They are almost as far north as the Arctic Circle. We believe that is supposed to be cold!! Glad we're nice and warm here.

Lots of seaports and boats. Guess that means F.I.S.H.!!!! Yea, we hope they bring us home some fishies!!!

Maybe they'll be able to bring us back a WHALE!! We'll definitely have everyone over then!!!

Wed. - Boarding the Ship

This is one of the many gardens at Sissinghurst. Crazy Lady and D.C. have heard about it so long that they just had to stop by and see for themselves.

This is Canterbury Cathedral. This is where the Pilgrims in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales were headed.

This is the Norwegian Jewel - the ship they will be on for the next 11 days.

Sure hope there are no icebergs nearby!!!!

Tues. in England

They landed at Heathrow Airport Monday a.m., picked up a rental car and headed for Brighton. This is a picture of the Royal Pavillion in Brighton.

This is the Bed and Breakfast where they are staying in Kent. We hope they don't like the dumb old cats that live there!!!

They were supposed to go to Sissinghurst Gardens yesterday and are hoping to go to Canterbury today. We'll let you know.

Sun. - On Their Way!!

Well, Crazy Lady and D.C. left today on their trip. We may starve to death, but we'll try to the

very end to get to our blog and let you know what's going on!!!

The Big Boy is keeping us, but he works so much and doesn't have time to sit around during the day and pay attention to us like part-time worker Crazy Lady and retarded retired D.C do. We might just forget what the hooman touch feels like!!!!

Well, I assessed the situaton and. . . . . . .

Thomas: Yeah, right!!!!!!

Phoebe: As if. . . . . . . .

Mancat Monday

Thomas: Well, Crazy Lady is flippin' out!!! She and D.C. are leaving for England in 6 days and she's starting to get so excited. They will be in Kent for 2 1/2 days and then get on a ship for the Shetland Islands, Iceland, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and New York City. I guess I'd be getting excited about that, too. She's so worthless that I couldn't even get her to take a decent picture of me for Mancat Monday. At least she pulled this one out of the files for me. We're gonna miss them while they're gone. The Big Boy will be feeding us and taking care of us. He's a real sweet guy, but he's no Crazy Lady, that's for sure!!!!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Trixie: Well, they've finally figured out that I'm resting in here. . . .

. . . and so they've stopped. . . . . .

. . . . closing the doors on me!!!!!

And, now for a note about Trixie!!!!!!! Trixie disappeared last night. She had been with Crazy Lady at the computer and then she was gone. Time for bed and nobody could find Trixie. Then there was a tiny little scratching noise next to the computer. Apparently, Trixie had climbed into a cabinet to rest and D.C. had come through and closed the door.

Didn't y'all miss me at all???

Well, actually, this is not such a bad place to be locked in. Lots of good CD's. . . .

good door to shut out the light. . . . .

nice comfortable surface for sleeping. Yeah, go ahead and close the door. I'm staying here for a while!!!

Thomas Shows Trixie A Thing or Two

Okay, so Crazy Lady and D.C. are trying to get us to stop scratching on the furniture. They put sticky tape up on the corners of all the chairs (what a pain) and they want us to start scratching on these strips of carpet hung on door knobs.

D.C. showed Trixie what to do, but she just didn't listen.

So, she ignored the carpet strip for a while and then. . . .

she got it backwards!!!

Thomas had to step up and show her how to work the thing.

She's starting to figure it out, but she's not sure that she likes it!!!!

A New Home for Piggy

A friend of Crazy Lady's at work had an interesting occurrence last week. A kitten followed her dog, Maggie, home and decided to take up residence with them.

She must have really liked Maggie a lot.

The 4 year old bean, whose name is MacKenzie, seems taken with the kitten. She named the kitten - Piggy!!! Don't ask us why.

So, Piggy was fed. . . . . . .

. . . . . .and fed!

She was given some new toys. . . . . . . .

. . .and Maggie is still getting used to having Piggy around.
