We're off to Paducah

Connie and I are ready to leave for our 17th Annual "Once In A Lifetime" Annual Trip to Paducah, Kentucky (Quilt City, USA). I've heard the dogwoods are blooming and the town is ready for thousands of quilters from around the world to gather. And on Saturday, I'll be in Kalamazoo, MI for our youngest son's graduation from Western Michigan University. It should be a great week! I'll catch up when I get back and will have pictures to share. Jasper knows I am leaving again and is not happy about it. It looks like he's saying, "Now, where are you going?"

I wish I could join you! It snowed all day yesterday, and it is cold and we (including my tulips) wanted and expected spring. The nearest and best I can do is that I got a nice parcel yesterday from Hancocks in Paducah!

Have fun!

Aren't cats amazing? They just know when you're going away. Mine has a terrible sense of timing - she ignores me all the time I'm sitting down, then appears demanding to sit on me at just the very moment I'm about to get going!

Have a great time and keep your eyes open for me I'll be with my friend Yuki from Japan so it might be easier to find me! Jasper and Jack will just have to get along without us!

Wow Jeanne, have a great time. You deserve it.

Have a great fun trip! Can't wait the report when you get back! Jasper is not a happy camper with you for leaving. One summer, when we're away for vacation for 1 1/2 weeks, my cat Tiger, ignored me for two weeks afterward when we came back.

As I certified old maid/cat lady, I will have to side with Jasper. Poor baby will be on his own, protecting his property. Not that I wouldn't go to Paducah too.
