: : By this time NEXT Wednesday, Adrienne, her little Nicholas & I will be somewhere in South Carolina, closing in on Charlotte, NC, where we will be spending Wednesday night. Thursday morning, we will be picking up Kate & heading to Chimney Rock. (Perhaps we'll pass Ilse & Patty on the road! Ilse will be the one hanging out of her rental car & yelling for Bubba at every turn in the highway!!)
: : Thursday evening, Miss Marcia, Mme. Adrienne and Miss Katie O' Arbroath (is that right, Kate?) will be at the bunkhouse ready to greet early arrivals! Yay! Yippeeeee! It's almost here, and I'm getting REALLY excited.
: : See you all soon!
: : MMMM
: Dear MMMMarcia,
: She Who Tracks, The Bee Holder and The Swarm will be there to help get things rolling Thursday evening also, and I must say it is getting harder and harder to control The Swarm in their enthusiasm. Some of the bees have reserved seats on The Bee Holder's hat for the trip to North Carolina, and the rest will be traveling in steerage under the hat. It is bound to be an interesting experience for the folks at Delta Airlines when I come through the gates with a bag of bees. You'll hear me laughing all the way to Asheville! ;0)
Oh ain't it the truth!! Those guys at Charlotte Airport are gonna be 'non-plussed' to say the least!! I can see it now! Gayle with her bees - me with my 'little extra's'!! Picture it! 'Arrivals' - 'Well, Miss, I don't know when you were last in the 'colonies', but we have been 'settled' for quite awhile now and we *do* have things like blankets and food! OK, maybe its not what *you* are used to - but hey!! You can't go wrong with a Big Mac!' Well, I'm gonna look 'im straight in the eye - and lie!! 'But I *always* travel with my own supplies!! I can't go *anywhere* without my 'security blankie'! And my doctor has put me on a 'shortbread' diet!!'
Aye, as Delta Airlines looks over at Continental Airlines, those immortal words shall hang over the 'arrivals' desk - 'We do not understand what is happening here?!'
Well, I'll tell ya, pal!! 'It's the time of The Great Mohican Gathering '99 - and we're here to party! Get on down!!'
See y'all in a week and a bit!
