I am home

The plane I was in touched down at midnight Wednesday/Thursday, depending how you look at it. AddEmoticons04259 10-25-09 The first thing I head upon connecting with my brother, who picked me up, was ‘Your fur babies where Turdkeys.’ AddEmoticons04263 That told me exactly what they had been during my absence at home. AddEmoticons04267 10-25-02 Tath mostly hid in the linen closet, as I expected. cat 44 Thena kept him company so he wouldn’t be lonely all the time, but basically did whatever she wanted otherwise… until it came to getting their claws clipped, which was a necessity. CatSmiley11  Thena tends to go ballistic whenever it is time to get her nails clipped, and it sounds as if this has gotten worse. cat 53 10-16-27 NO ONE wants to do her nails, and this includes the vet and her assistants. cat 45 Hiss.  Growl. Snarl.  Cuss.  And yes, she is not afraid to use said nails for evil intent, or defence, depending how you look at things. cat 32 They wrap her tightly in a towel and go at it. cat 6 Even then they get shredded. cat 6 Up to this point, Tath has been easier. cat 28 If you can catch Tath, he is usually resigned to take the punishment.  (This means that he lets you hold him and cut his nails without issue.) cat 28 Clearing throat here and trying to make excuses for the pretty kitty… maybe it was because mama wasn’t here to see what he was doing that he thought he could get away with it, maybe he thought that if Thena could do it, so could he. AddEmoticons00937 I think you already know where this is going.  They pulled him out of the linen closet and he immediately went boogaloo all over them.  One Tath cat in motion. cat 45 A stream of explicits coming out of his mouth (I have to talk to both of them about their language now), and a streak of white fur in motion as he struck at those that trimmed his nails. addemoticons00954 22-31-47 Only time will tell if this is going to continue. cat 6 Sigh.  Other than hiding, biting, cussing, and generally doing everything but chewing tobacco to get their feelings about their desertion through to those around them, they were generally calm.  cat 53 10-16-27  I walked through the doorway, luggage in tow, and Thena came running out from the back of the house.  Meouw? cat 26 Meouw! And immediately began to run in circles… celebration time is here. cat 36 Tath slinked into the kitchen moments later, turned and headed back to my room, seemed to realize who I was and returned… mama! mama… in that Siamese voice of his. CatSmiley21 I slept surrounded by fur, and the sound of purring. cat 53 They seem to have this idea that I owe them extra cuddles to make up for lost time… snort. MSN-Emoticon-155

How did it go at RTC Ottawa, you are wondering? AddEmoticons04259 10-25-09 The hostess was gracious, the hotel was well situated and clean, the people attending were friendly and welcoming, it was all I could have hoped. MSN-Emoticon-143 As far as my part went, I didn’t woof my cookies before I had to read, I believe I did alright in my place on the panel, so that part went well. AddEmoticons04263 Without Eniko, I don’t think I would have done nearly as well as I did. MSN-Emoticon-143 I might have even got lost finding my way out of the room. AddEmoticons04231 She was wonderful with her support. AddEmoticons0425 We met a lot of great authors and readers.  I would do it again, given the chance, even if we did forget our capes. AddEmoticons04279 Next year I may, or not be there, but that depends on if one of the other authors can’t, as the lineup was already in place before I put my name back in. AddEmoticons04274 I am on a waiting list. smiley-confused005 If everything goes well, I will not be there… why do I say that? AddEmoticons04259 Mainly because I would not wish anyone the misfortune that would be the cause of their having to miss it.  There are not very many tickets left available, which means Eve will have another sell out next year, which is as it should be for an event this well managed. super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon Which is another thing, I would like to thank Eve Langlais for the open welcome I received. MSN-Emoticon-143 (BTW, her daughter is drop dead gorgeous and just as friendly.)

Well, this is lagging on and I have typing to do. AddEmoticons04279 I have only managed to transfer 2 of the 30 chapters I have written so far on ‘Final contact’ (one of my 2019 releases). AddEmoticons04274 I did think up new storylines while I was there, one for a contemporary and another that we will not talk about. making-bronx-cheer-smiley-emoticon (No, it is not THAT type of book, I don’t write THAT TYPE of books… LOL)  Figure that one out.  cat 53

Until next week, take care, be good and know that you are loved.AddEmoticons04225 22-31-36

    Glad to hear you made it home safe, and that the bratz were appreciative of your return. I agree, Eve is a blast and I hope to see her again soon.

      I am not sure I would have gotten through it without your help, I will be forever in your debt. Thank you for having me and being a friend. I will be writing up another blog later to cover more of my experiences.

    Welcome Home – you were missed but loved seeing all the pictures!! So glad you had a good time and got such a warm welcome from the Dynamic Duo although their babysitters didn’t get such a welcome!! Have a good weekend.

      You will hear more about the little turkeys, they did not behave at all, doing things they wouldn’t have gotten away with when I am home. They really took advantage of the situation.

    Glad you made it home OK and I was really disappointed that I didn’t see your name on the list for next year. While I don’t wish misfortune on anyone, maybe someone will change their mind 😉

    That is what happens when you don’t speak up fast enough, you miss the boat… well, if nothing else, there is always 2019, and I will see if I can get a few of my other author friends to come along. It would be interesting to see them in person… we get to meet so many on line, but never get to see them in person.
