Greetings from the GREAT WHITE NORTH! Today we went to Banff for half a day. We spent some time in the Upper Hot Springs, then had lunch in town.

I got to spend a day in Edmonton with my family. It was a lot of fun, seeing EVERYONE, and eating, eating, eating. I also received more Christmas gifts on my trip. I feel overloaded, and very blessed.

It’s too cold here, but I’m sure it’s just as cold as Denver. I miss my kitty cat. I know she’s in good hands with the cat sitter. Once we get home in a few days, I’ll post the pictures I took.

Well, I hope you all are enjoying your holidays. I’ll try to post again soon. I’ll close with some lines from Soapdish (I love Kevin Kline).

Edmund Edwards: [offstage] This guy never heard of contact lenses?

Jeffrey Anderson: [as Dr. Randall] The test results have come back.

Celeste Talbert: [as Maggie] And?

Burton White: What the hell?

David Barnes: [offstage] Brain fever!

Edmund Edwards: [offstage, loudly] Say it!

Celeste Talbert: [as Maggie] Brain fever!

Jeffrey Anderson: [as Dr. Randall] Yes. Brain fever. Or what we call in Austria…

[they both goggle at the word]

Jeffrey Anderson: Kopfgeschlagen. At the current rate of inflation, her brain will laterally explore the…

Celeste Talbert: [as Maggie] Literally explode?

Jeffrey Anderson: [as Dr. Randall] Exactly, within the next three houses.

Celeste Talbert: [as Maggie] Hours?

Jeffrey Anderson: [as Dr. Randall] Yes, will literally explode within next three hours. I would suggest leaving the restraint.

Celeste Talbert: [as Maggie] Restaurant?

Jeffrey Anderson: [as Dr. Randall] Restaurant, yes.

Celeste Talbert: [as Maggie] Her brain will actually explode?

Jeffrey Anderson: [as Dr. Randall] Yes, yes, I’ve, um, seen it happen. It’s a dreadful, dreadful thug. Thing.
