I took some vacation last Thursday and met up with some friends from work (two retired) for lunch at Bistro 61 in Niagara-On-The-Lake. Had a bit of a hard time finding parking, which HAD to be free. After driving around the block, I think I found the last free spot in the area. Mind you, people probably didn’t want to park there because of the post. Wusses:
Great restaurant – my first time there. We had a nice visit and were able to get caught up on everything:
Got home and let the four naked ladies out on the balcony for a little sun:
Glad they were all happy. I wish I could have said the same about my little Betta fish, McMortimer. He was starting to go downhill for a few days. He finally passed away. Just like my previous Bettas (Guido, McGuildenstern, McRosenkrantz) he was buried in my mother’s garden. I wrapped him up neatly and kept him in the freezer until I met up with Jan:
The next day, I “rescued” a new Betta. I’ve only had males in the past but decided to get a female this time. I usually get the one that isn’t the most eye-catching, just out of pity. So, without further adieu, please meet McCordelia:
The cats knew right away that it was a new fish:
Ok guys, move over – it’s my turn to look:
As for the weekend, it was quite good. Mike and I were going to fly up to Edenvale on Saturday, but I wasn’t feeling quite well enough to go that far. We decided to fly to Tillsonburg for breakfast instead. Part way through the flight, Mike decided to play a game on his iPhone:
Nothing like enjoying the view!
We had a great meal at the restaurant in the terminal building of the airport:
Back safe and sound in CYSN:
Unfortunately for kitties when we got back, it was bath time:
All four had a cleaning this time including little princess Mya:
They were not amused but quickly got over it. Mind you, Abby may have become possessed during her bath. Not sure what pose this is supposed to be:
For dinner that night, Mike got us some tasty noms from Wendy’s. I set the straw for his pop on the table while we got things ready in the kitchen. We came out and the straw was gone. I just figured that I didn’t actually put it out, so I got him another one. After dinner, I put some stuff in the recycling bin on the balcony and voila! There’s Mike’s straw
Boo’s so naughty. I don’t know how many things she’s dropped down the space on the floor by the railing, down to the 9th floor. Geesh.
I was able to go for another flight last night. We had our monthly RAA meeting at the Welland Airport. Like a true classy lady, I climbed up on Vyctor to check the fuel before we left:
The weather wasn’t the greatest but it was certainly flyable. Hoping it’s nice on Saturday for Airport Fest at the St. Catharines Airport!
Today’s symptoms: Feeling rather fatigued but I’m still dealing with a bladder infection. What else is new?! I’ve had a pretty bad headache for going on the last week as well. Other than that, things are pretty much status quo.
