The weather has been bad--so no real good to check out the local sites.

Here's just a snip of Twinks outing today.

We rode into work on the Virginia Railway Express. We were a little disappointed since we all thought that "express" meant fast--HA! It was a 2 hour evolution--the time dragged-- we were almost late for work!

Here he is at my building

Heading off to met the hubs at the corner subway- He came to meet us for lunch and for a little house hunting.

Having an outdoor lunch (funny Wienie picture) and.....

Listening to a band in the courtyard. Life is good.

Video to come shortly!!! Look out.

So you have to check this out- This we can NOT afford--but we all enjoyed looking at it any (I like looking at model homes for decorating ideas and to dream I guess) Maybe Twinkle's mom has deep pockets..huh?

This condo is just across from my work- This place is $946,000.00 for a mere
1,400 sq. ft--yikes, garage not included, but for another $40,000 they'll toss one in however, also with an additional $60 per month garage maintenance fee!!!! As if..........

If we had deep pockets I could not pass up that view.

God Bless America!

Dear Amy

It's me Twinks...

My precious, I'm afraid I have bad news for you




Look what they have on the East Coast-----

Football, Food and Friends--it's male bonding time. That's what's on tap tonight, which is just perfect for me, since that trip from Washington state to Washington DC was quite taxing on my little soul. Can you believe this? It's amazing how I already have an "in" with the man of the house.

I'm sorry to say I think I might have to stay here a little longer---

Don't cry for me...

I arrived safely as Callista packed me for travel well. I can't wait to tell you all about Cinnibonbon and the other 3 men in her life--too bad they are the furry, four-legged variety--but we'll see, I think I'll have an "in" with them too!!

Ciao Bella

The Rainy Adventures of Twinkle

The weather turned nasty rainy here last week and poor little Twinkle was right in the midst of it! Friday night he stowed away in my bag to the Chris Isaak concert at Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, but he opted to stay in my bag out of the rain. He said Chris was a great entertainer even if he couldn't see him.

Saturday was a nice day. We headed to Whidbey Island and Twinkle enjoyed the ferry ride and the wind blowing him around.



We sat out on the deck all day Saturday, but the resident cat didn't like Twinkle, so he kept a low profile.

Sunday, it rained buckets! Once again Twinkle opted to stay in my bag as we ran from shop to shop in Langley. He came out later and was doing espresso shots in the local coffee shop, but was in no condition to have his picture taken. But the locals, loved him, it was standing room only in the place as he made a spectacle of himself.


We came home early due to the rain and Twinkle thought it would be great to get some postcards to take pictures in front of because the weather was so bad.



Here's Twinkle taking one last look at the view from my office. Finally the weather is changing and Twinkle is leaving for his next stop!


Looks like the pics are too big for the page, so you can click on the pic to see the entire thing. Sorry Twinkle, getting cut out of your own pics!

Rainy Season?!?

You would think it was the rainy season here in Washington. Poor Twinkle. He got soaked at the beach and a bit grouchy. He is ready to move on to (hopefully) sunnier weather.
I will post pics tomorrow from over the weekend.

A Letter Home

Dear Amy,

I just wanted you to know how crazy the weather is here in Washington! Yesterday started off foggy and then was nice and sunny the remainder of the day! I got up early so I could tag along to Seattle where Callista works, but since I didn't have bus fare, she made me stowaway in her computer bag. Hmmppff... such treatment! I got a few peeks of the city on the way in and because Callista was busy with work, I enjoyed the view of Elliot Bay from her office. At lunch time I escaped the office in her pocket. We visited the post office to ship off a project and then we shopped for postcards before we headed to Subway for lunch. Callista was in meetings all afternoon, so I went back to enjoying the view. It's great fun to watch the ferry boats and daydream about being on them. After another bus ride home where I was again stuffed into her computer bag, I decided to spend the evening with Moose rather than head out to do errands with Callista. Today, I opted to stay home with Moose. I heard it was going to rain and I didn't want to get up at 5AM with her again! Thankfully Moose knew all Callista's passwords to get on the home computer. Sorry no pics from yesterday, but I hear we are going to a beach house this weekend! I think I will rest up for it!

Much love,
Mr. Twinkle
