It really was a great birthday - it has been going on for a bit - and on
Saturday I am going up island to visit with a childhoo
d friend who has come out for a week from Ontario. We always have such a
good time and it was her 50th on the 8th so the birthday will continue. Pat
is unfortunately in Florida and phoned to tell me he has two days offf from
his meetings and is going exploring in the keys and what lovely weather it
is. It was snowing here today and much too cold to garden. Stopped now but
windy and cold still. Good day to sew but I am sore as bats from neuro
physio so probably will just veg instead.
Carole can you email me your phone number off line and I will give you a
call next time in Washington? I actually could have had time on the way
down this time if the border hadn't been so busy. I am going to apply for a
nexus pass so that will help next time I go.

After all this talk I went to Seattle for Easter and to celebrate a late
birthday with my family (this 50th birthday is a great thing - it goes on
forever! and is so incredible!). Well my mom, brother and sister in law
chipped in and bought me my Eagle Creek suitcase I was going to see about
getting myself. It is 6 pounds and holds so much! They got it from REI
and I love it. They also bought some of the packing cubes which I don't
have yet and a tote which goes over the handle which I do have. It holds
an incredible amount.
I also got $250 worth of specialty plants from my sister in law. It was
so much fun choosing them. Now to plant them.
Anyhow off to a hot bath and probably an early bed after dinner. Pat is
still in Florida on business (he gets heat and sun - I get snow - not
fair.) for another couple of days so the dog and I are on our own. Glory
for another day as I don't have to hide how sore and tired I am. Pain
level is way to high!
But the prednisone is down to 7 mg so it is worth it.

Kate, Campmor (campmor.com) carries some Eagle Creek luggage, though I
see the CrossRoads models there. (NAYY). It's not the same as looking
in a store, but if no local store options work it, it's a possibility.
As for our trip - Mike's been to Paris a couple of times before, both
briefly, and I've never been. Originally, this was going to be more of
travelling around type trip, but we decided instead to spend 2 weeks in
through Untours (untours.com). That's how we went to Germany last
with my mom and sister. The package includes airfare, grund transers,
ground transportation of some sort (in Paris it's a Metro pass) and a
vacation apartment to stay in. Aside from an orientation session of a
of hours your time is your own to do with as you please. We really
having an apartment so we can have some breakfast in our pajamas.
Mike knows some French as I've never deveoped an ear for it, despite two
years of high school French. Italian, Spanish and German all make more
to my ear.
You'll really be covering some ground on your trip! We spent 2 months
Italy back in '97. (In those days, I could have handled either of our
backpacks, now I can only handle the smaller one - and not even that if
costo really flares up. More reason to travel with dose packs on hand!)
40th birthday was in Milan. Oh and our two packs are both Jansport -
smaller one is basically a large daypack, which is how we use it while
playing tourist. Big enough for raincoats, literature and lunch. And
I'm busy with my camera, Mike can cram my purse in it too! heehee
remove the Gator cheer to email me
Change everything. Love & forgive.

Thanks for the advice- I looked at the Eagle bags- can't do the back
pack thing- though maybe could a light weight- not 35 lbs. Anyways I'm
going to check out some different pieces and hopefully the Eagle brand
will be at a local store. This year I'm off to Paris also- it looks
wonderful Nann- and Milan, Geneva and Greece. Going in June but after
my trip last year I've learned- get in shape. So I'm back on the
treadmill again. That was the saving grace for me last year because
this tour group really gives you your money's worth and you do a ton
of walking. Have you been to Paris before Nann? Areyou going with a
tour group? We will be doing some sort of dinner river cruise and the
usual tourist stops- my first trip there. PS Kate I'm also looking for
a tote bag as an extra suitcase for return in case I buy some things
there- the nylon bag sounds perfect- I'm going to search Janzen (I
know I didn't spell that right) Kate
