Continuing on through Saturday in Alberta… did you know that they have a pirate ship in the West Edmonton Mall? I didn’t!!! Where were you when I was drawing all those illustrations for Freeport books?
They had a place in the Food Fair called Butter Chicken & Naan Stop, but wouldn’t it be more clever to call it Naan Stop Butter Chicken? Get it? Huh?
Anyway, we drove on into the wee hours and arrived at Katie’s at 3am. Lately I’ve been drinking the Starbuck’s bottled frapaccino drinks you can get at gas stations for all my bleary-eyed wee morn driving needs, you know, for those nights where you’re tired enough to mistake domestic cats for coyotes.
On Sunday morning we went to the Sheraton Cavalier Hotel in Saskatoon for breakfast buffet and I met two of Deanna’s four siblings, and assorted nieces and nephews. At the University of Saskatoon they had some exhibits in the sciencey-type area.
In this one, Deanna hopes the dome is a pop-o-matic and that when she pushes down on it all the buildings will jumble about.
