San Francisco, California, U.S.A. - 10th October 2012

By: LittleCableCars

This one's for you, DuDette.  Your host says you look at our updates.  :)  Remember when DuDu invented the game of stopping for a drink of water at this romantic place?  Hehe, I got water up my nose.  He is still imitating you balancing upside down on the Capitol dome.   Funny guy.

Hi Mom.  Love and hugs,

Suomi-boy

Sausalito, California, U.S.A. - 16th October 2012

By: LittleCableCars

We had lunch and Napa Valley red wine :) at Sausalito and rode this ferryboat. On the way over we watched some Navy jets practicing for an air show.  Here are zooms of what we saw.

Mom, today was a bit on the grey side, not a blue or white day for me. Grey just means the cooling fog is in which we prefer over too hot.

Having fun,
Suomi-boy

At last!  The day came for Lexie's special performance.   She brought out a big old-fashioned iPod called a gramophone and played a few arias from "La Boheme" and then compared them to songs from "Rent"!

She is being very nice to us because she wants us to help again with the magic box trick.  I was reluctant at first but it is our Lexie and we are madly in love with her.  So one by one we got into the box and disappeared.

Uh-oh!

But then she waved the magic wand again, recited some mumbo jumbo and it worked.  We were back in our seats and look what was in the box.  It is....  Oh no, is it really....  It is!!!  

Ta-da!!

Jeremy is back!!  Lexie brought him home through her magic box trick!!

After lots of hugs, we took turns helping him with his luggage.  Hehe, he has stickers from four countries including his own. :). Not bad for a guy who just wanted to stay home and host. C.T. Mouse, Detective, says he looks different. ;)  Hmm, it was a rough trip, Jeremy told us, as it took longer than planned and he almost ran out of fresh water, candy and cupcakes.  Then we tucked him into bed and he fell asleep. 

Hugs from your
blue and white

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.

When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

By: LittleCableCars

While our host was busy in her office, we went up to the attic to see if we could find some old junk to use for Halloween costumes and decorations.  We found a wardrobe full of old clothes!  Lexie, Squab  and I put on sweaters while BarryO got a jacket.  Konrad put on a plaid bowtie and Jeremy picked out a fireman's hat and boots.  We will wear the rest of the stuff for special occasions. :)  But Konrad and Jeremy say they are guys, they won't wear anymore of that stuff.

The cold rainy season has started here.  Burr!  So Konrad jumped at a chance to head for a tropical climate, a place called Paradise on Earth!!

We gave him a group hug and Lexie offered to send him by magic  :o  but he decided to go by traditional ToyVoyager travelope instead.

The original Jeremy has arrived by traditional ToyVoyager conveyance.  Lexie needs more magic lessons!  ;).  She's applying for a scholarship to ballet school instead.  He is very happy that his cousin Magic Jeremy is here. ;).

We greeted him with lots of hugging and helped him bathe with soap Zandy sent and ate up all his candy.

DuDu and his friend, POD-not are thinking about dressing as cowboys for Halloween so the baby tigers are now rodeo horses.  Strange country, the far west!

Hope you are well, Mom

Many hugs from

Your loving Suomi-boy

San Francisco, California, Halloween, U.S.A. - 31st October 2012

By: LittleCableCars

Hi Mom.

We went to a Halloween party.  DuDu took us to a friend's house for a spooky evening.  We bobbed for apples, a skeleton popped out of a closet, there were cobwebs, witches and ghosts everywhere, we reached into a bowl and pulled out slimy eyes, eek; and lots of other stuff.  C.T. Mouse, Detective, said the eyes were really peeled grapes.  The host looked spooky but was very nice and a health nut.  He gave us fruit punch, apples, oranges, raisins and small denomination coins instead of candy.

I wore a clown mask and the Ghost of Stow Lake appeared.

Boo!

Your scary, blue and white

Suomi-boy

Hey Alex,

So cool to have your own apartment!  Hope you find or make some cool furniture.  Can't wait to see it finished.  Yep, we have lots of tips.  Maybe put your lawn chair on the roof but leave room for Santa to land there on Christmas Eve.  ;).  Make a picnic up there.  Sun bathe.  Star gaze.

This is how we make a bed:  find a box top in the size you want for the base.  Gather lots of material from the charity bag for sheets, blankets and pillow cases.  We took a piece of cat bed material from an old broken cat perch, sewed it double and stuffed it for a soft mattress.  A dark brown velour blouse was cut up for bedspreads, tablecloth, pillow and bolster covers.  The headboard is a 4" x 6" picture frame covered in that same velour material.

A smaller bed has a platform made from another 4" x 6" frame.

We got lazy and never finished hemming all the sheets and bedspreads but we think it doesn't show too much.   Of course, we test the beds daily by jumping up and down. :).

Have fun, Alex,

Your friend,

Suomi-boy

Rodeo Beach, Marin County, CA, U.S.A. - 14th November 2012

By: LittleCableCars

Today is Lexie's last day here and we put on our outdoor gear to hike at Rodeo Beach in Marin County. Then we went home; she played a melodic bell for us and Squab did the chicken dance ;) ; we hugged a lot and she took off through the magic box. Poof!!

Don't worry, she read a book by Houdini's brother. If all goes well, she will soon appear on the most famous blue chair in all of Germany.  :)

OMG!!  What is this ....

Love and hugs,
Suomi-boy

Cheerio is home!!  She really knows how to make an entrance! :)  I introduced myself and then we settled into the living room where she showed us her new purse, postcard and what, surprise, her new baby duck!! ;) 

We hugged her and she told us of her adventures with Yosemite in Germany.

Love ya, Mom,

By: LittleCableCars

When we came home from grocery shopping, Noodles was home chatting with Miss Kitty!  Says he flew in through an open window after a 2,000 mile flight from Minnesota.  Hmm, I wonder what surprise his Mom has for him; she says he has to wait a couple of weeks.  We hugged him and he showed us the goodies he brought from Jillyfish's house.  Oh boy, he brought a Minnesota pencil and enough writing paper for all of us to write our letters to Santa. 

We're going to watch the Macy Parade now while eating a bowl of pistachios.  See ya later at the Thanksgiving feast.

Your ever-lovin' Suomi-boy

ps:  Thanks, Mom, for planning an exciting new adventure for me.  Who knew I would go 'round the world so fast.  :)  I'm glad you are letting me stay until after New Years as I am very excited about seeing the city Christmas decorations.

The Thanksgiving holiday is all about gratitude and the sharing of traditional foods that goes back to the pilgrims and indigenous Americans, and farther back to religious celebrations after the Fall harvest.  In 1941 U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt set the holiday's date on the Fourth Thursday in November. 

We sat around a big table and each of us told what we are thankful for and then had a moment of silence remembering our dear friend, kcrawfish.  We are very happy to have known her. 

We enjoyed a traditional meal of salad; turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, squash, carrots, bread, cranberry sauce; several desserts, etc.
