All Our Bags Are Packed...


Just doing some last minute cleaning stuff before we head to Calgary to begin our Asian adventure tonight. We are having supper with Heather & Jonathan, Darrin & Kelsey and then catching an evening flight to Vancouver. Tomorrow we fly to San Francisco, where we'll meet Audrey & Aime' again, and on to Taipei. Melinda said this morning that it's now only 46 hours until we arrive there!

I'm hoping to stay in touch with lots of pictures and updates on our activities. I know there will be lots to share and I don't want to wait for 3 weeks to begin. I won't know where to start!! I've got the camera with 3 sets of batteries and 3 memory cards packed so I should be good for about 800 pictures. I'm so looking forward to the photographic opportunities in these countries. Architecture, flowers, people, markets, water, traffic, farming, mountains - there will be so much to capture!

But now I better tie up the loose ends - Bob's just putting a couple of loads of silage in the last bag and then he needs a haircut. I have to vacuum and take the dog to Kendra and Yvonne's house. And then we are stopping to see Meadow, Naomi and Jerry on our way out. Gotta give that babe one last hug and try to memorize her every detail to last me for 3 long weeks!

Sayonara - or whatever it is in Mandarin! I think culture shock may be part of my experience too!!!
