You and Sharon are a pair
I swear, I swear
Two Alice’s in wonderland
How grand, how grand

While Mike and I are here
Just crying in our beer
But the tears are one of happiness
We both in laughter must confess.

ROTFL at seeing this fish kissing episode.
But what I want ot know is, what happened when you two stood by the tank with that humongous shark?
Grouse mountain is totally awesome.
The poetry in this thread is equally so.

Kit thank you so very much for sharing this incredible time that you have with this special lady with everyone here at Passions.
Is it any wonder we all love you both so much, you are incredible ladies!  Hugs to you both, and I will just keep on dreaming that I was there enjoying the fun!

Is that the flag of surrender Sharon? LOL, You'll need to hide your street address or move soon, as it looks like half the Pips community will want to come for a visit!
What a poetic paradise...Mysteria's Vancouver

Thank you for the great comments everyone, and thanks for sharing in our memories. Here's some final pictures. :~)





~*~

Sharon … I can’t thank you enough … I had a blast, my friend. I’m off to work this morning, much more relaxed physically and mentally then I’ve been in a very long time. Thank you for everything, but mostly … for your incredible friendship and the fabulous memories!





Love and hugs,
/Kit


~*~


Our Final Daze


Well Friday was a lazy morn, we rested most the day,
Until about 2:30 in the afternoon, I’d say;
We needed to relax our bones, we’d had a busy time,
We’d seen the sights, we’d walked for miles, we’d reminisced in rhyme.

We covered the itinerary Sharon had prepared,
From Stanley Park to mountain tops – such memories, we shared;
We had a lovely dinner at the Keg, near Granville Isle,
Then off we went to see a show – live theatre, in style.

The Improvivors were a hoot, “Survivor” was their theme,
They did a take-off on the show, worked into every scene;
They voted off the actors based on challenges and skits,
We nearly split our sides from doubled-over laughing fits!

The last few days we took it easy, shopping was in store,
We slept in late, then afternoons were filled with sales galore;
We found ourselves some clearance sales, the likes I’d never seen,
And there was Sharon, having fun … she was a shopper’s dream!

I followed in a frenzy, watched the master at her craft,
She has a nose for bargains, never one to take the shaft;
We oohed and ahhed at all the sales, and filled a couple bags,
Amazed at all the bargains on those cute designer tags.

By Sunday night, I will confess, my suitcase looked too small,
I’d found too many bargains at the market and the mall,
But Sharon was resourceful, “No dilemma, Kit!” she said,
She’d found an extra suitcase for my overflow instead!

We packed me up but still had time to laugh and have some fun,
My trip was almost over, but the night had just begun;
We talked and laughed and giggled till the wee hours of the night,
Until the clock said one a.m. – we had to say goodnight.

We set up two alarm clocks, just in case we missed the first,
And caught a couple hours sleep before those buzzers burst;
Now Sharon was a trooper, she woke up just after five,
“Too early!” Sharon laughed … “I beat the sunrise!” Sakes alive!

My taxi came by six o’clock – we said our last goodbyes,
I waved as I went down the street, with teardrops in my eyes;
My flight was uneventful as I nodded off to sleep,
With memories of friendship that were mine and hers to keep.

/Kit



PS ... give Sheba a hug for me, Sharon ...

I wish I had a poem inside and perhaps I do, but right now all I seem to find are knots, knots, and more knots, while these silly drops fill my eyes.  I miss you big time, and the pleasure was all mine.  I am still laughing about that site LOL.  Sheba misses you and your gentleness she says.

Just look at it this way Kit,
you'll be pleased for if you do...
'cause Mysteria will need her bag -
WHAT? A trip to come see you!

She'll travel over all the miles
simply to shop with you again
she'll bring her laughter and her smiles
I wonder when the trip will begin?

Then we will have the pleasure once more
of understanding what's in store
when we open up a poem from Kit
with Mysteria's laughter full in it!

How much I wish I could have been on this vacation too
You had such fun enticing all those fish there in the zoo
I giggled with you both in spite of my not being there
Had I shown up I know we'd give Vancouver quite a scare...

I think that we should start to plan another Passions meet.
Where should we go? Come here? Go there? For either would be neat...
As long as we can play in rhyme, it matters not to me
Let's do it - Let's all run away - How wondrous that would be..
