Pre-dawn will see us barrelling eastward along the Trans Canada. We've decided at the last moment to take the Slightly Retarded Kitty with us, and fully expect that she will settle down and stop howling after the first hour or so. And if not, it's only an 11 hour drive.
It will be great to connect with family again, and we no longer have to feel guilty about leaving the kitty without someone to snuggle with.
We have no internet at the lake (hell, we have no fridge, stove, running water, or indoor plumbing at the lake), so online time will be limited to a brief foray into the wheat city midweek.
See you next weekend. Be nice to each other.
