Bon Voyage

Darlings, it's just a whirl around here. Tomorrow morning we board the train for Chicago, three days and two nights across Utah and Nebraska and various and sundry other nasty little Republican redoubts. We're looking forward to it immensely. Plans for this have been in the works for months, but I was never convinced it would actually happen until tonight while I was packing.

The lure of sleeping on the train and days of enforced idleness is delightful. But wait, there's more. Diane von Austinburg is flying up from Austin to spend time with us, R Man's oldest friend is blowing in from Florida and I'm planning on lunching with Thombeau, master of planet Fabulon and the Chateau. Big times all around.

I know I've been bad about all that posting stuff, but I promise to better, as soon as I get back. Since our trip also includes a jaunt off to Annapolis to see R Man's psycho family, that won't be until June 7, but my dears, I'll have such stories then.

    I can't wait either. I'm sure it'll be like the meeting of the courts at midnight on mardi gras, the court of Peenee greets the Court de Thombeau. I'll be in white satin and chinchilla...watching on tv.

  3. I was just wondering about you guys. What a whirl indeed, it all sounds so glamorous like a Marlene Dietrich movie or Marilyn in Some Like it Hot or Judy in the Harvey Girls. Yes definitely getting a Marlene, Marilyn, Judy vibe from this trip. Have a wonderful journey... On the Atchison, Topeka, & the Sante Fe...
