HI Asta

Your vacation plans look delightful. I wish I could go. And Uncle Tony and Mark's garden is a magical place. I'd help with watering the plants but don't think that's exactly what they wanted.

Hi Asta
I hope you packed enough. And I hope the car is big enough! Looks like a great place to go and have lots of fun.

Hi Asta
Thanks for telling us about the lyric contest. I'll investigate further, although as you know my skills tend more to the scientific than the musical.
I do hope you have a really wonderful vacation. Just a word of warning about the journey though. Do remember that when you are in a car, what you perceive to be 'interesting chatter' can occasionally be interpreted by the human passengers are just a teeny wee bit irritating....and when that happens, their driving tends not to improve....
Cheers, H.

Notes by Nina said...

We hope, if you've had a chance to check your blog, that you didn't think we'd forgotten you! We didn't get on the computer much before we left Florida for home, and we didn't get on it at all on the road. We were really happy to find this post so we can get a hint of where you are on vacation! We hope you are really really enjoying it and that the weather has cooperated a bit more for more time in the lake and in the sun. Be careful. Have fun. Keep the humines in line. And tell us all about it when you get home! We miss you soooo much!
