Weekend away
Fri, 09-14-2012 - 10:17am

MH and I are heading out shortly for our annual weekend pilgrimage to Vermont for a Classic Car Show.  We've been going for the past 10 years...MH has been going for the past 35.  We have the best time.  We've befriend several other classic car owners that stay in the same motel...and should bad weather (doesn't look like it will) come our way and we don't make to the event, there's a classic car show happening right in the motel parking lot...cool.

We'll be arriving in MH's 1972 Chevelle Malibu Convertible...it's cherry.  The first year we went, MH let me drive it into the car show...I guess that's when he felt he still needed to impress me...because I've probably been at the driver's seat twice since.

We'll be back Sunday.

Poor little Callie...doesn't know what's up.  "How come you are not letting me out, hey what's that thing on wheels and where are you going with it, wow all that litter in the box, why all this food down, what's up with the huge water bowl...I don't think I like this"  That's the nice thing about cats...you can leave them for a weekend and they will be just fine.

Enjoy your weekend.  Stay the course.

((((group hug))))

We're back, thanks for all 'have-fun' wishes...and we did!  And thank you to my Jr. Cl's...too funny Luvin...and to all who hung out and supported others.

Another couple, one who had joined us a few years ago, decided to come this year,too...and they followed us in their 1965 Chevy Impala...black car and black convertible top...red interior...talk about cherry.

The weather held out..only rained at night. Saturday a cloud threatened us all day long while at the car show.  When the sun was behind it, it was pretty cold, but went it came out from behind the cloud it was hot...it was off and on with our jackets all day long, but it did not dampen our good time.  We saw some really beautiful classics and it was really nice to see our newly-made friends at the motel.  We ate at our usual venues.  It's really nice to know the area. Reservations are in place for next year

Poor Callie.  Just as I was leaving, I opened the door to let her out and give her and Southie free reign of the house, but I only opened the door about an inch or so because I was afraid she'd make a dash for the door I was leaving through to enter the garage.  But she never figured out how to pull it all the way open...so she and Southie spent the entire time downstairs.  No biggy really, because it's two rooms, but she probably felt imprisoned. She was happy to see us, went right outdoors, but has since come back in to eat....I thought we might not see her for a while.  Southie is giving us the cold shoulder.

It's good to be home, and MH is yelling at the Patriot's because they are lookin' pretty bad.  Everything's back to normal :smileyhappy:
