Violet's Winter Get-a-way

Home Page 200, The Emails
The following are a collection of emails intercepted by the Echelon system in the winter of 2010 between Violet, The Cloud Lady, BIFTB and their friends.



Dear Cloud Lady and Friends;

I can't take any more of this.
The snow outside is blowing sideways.
It has been raining and snowing here for a solid week now.
The weatherman is calling for another blizzard tonight.

I've got a bad case of cabin fever and coming out of hibernation, I just want to go somewhere warm and take a long nap..

BiFTB Just shot the freezer six times and muttering something about more boat drinks.
I am afraid he will shoot me next
So while he is reloading, I grabbed my suitcase and stole his Iridium card and I am out of here and heading south as fast as I can.
I don't care if he comes chasing after me, the airlines won't let him take his guns and rockets with him.

See you in a while- when it gets warm and sunny.
Now there is only one thing on my mind- SOUTH
and maybe chocolate too

Love and Hugs

Violet T Bear




Dear Cloud Lady and Friends;

Well, I got to Bradley airport in the middle of a blizzard and grabbed a flight to Miami.
When I got to Miami and looked out the window, it was dark, cold and rainy. 40,s and storms coming any minute.
I need to go farther south. maybe Mexico.
I check the weather there and still is not warm.
BiFTB has always told stories of a special island. I will go there.
He always complains how small airline seats are. I don't have any problem at all.
Warm weather, here we come.

Dear Violet,
I have a suggestion for you--put on your galoshes (sp?), a fleece vest over your furry body, and a waterproof jacket, with a visor hat, and go for a walk outside. You will not melt--you will smell the thawed earth and hear spring in the air. I promise.

Your friend,
Di



Dear Cloud Lady and Friends;

I knew where I had to go.
An old pirate friend (don't ask) has a hideout on a small unknown tropical island off of the coast of Venezuela, called Bonaire.
Bonaire means good air, and on Bonaire the air is always warm and sweet, with the scent of hybiscus in the air..
I know Captain Don will always have a place for me. We go back a long ways.
Don invested his share of the booty better than I did and his hideout is to say the least posh.
This is just the place to make me forget the New England winters. I don't care what Princes Di has to say.

Dear Cloud Lady and Friends;

What more can I say...

Maybe
I wish the Cloud Lady & BiFTB were here to share this with me

Dear Cloud Lady and Friends;

Well Violet is missing and so is my credit card.
I got a call from my credit card company to verify that I was charging airline tickets all over the place.
I asked them if they could handcuff the person using my card to a chair until I got there.
They said no, that I could ether declare the card stolen or approve the charges.
I told them to approve them. At least this way, I can track her by the trail of credit card charges.
I know where she is headed now. Good thing I always keep a bag packed in case I have to travel quickly.
Watson, my hat, the chase is on.

BiFTB



Dear Cloud Lady and Friends;

I know where she has gone.
There was a charge to my credit card for a round of "Bonaire Sunsets"
There is only one place in the world where they serve that drink.
At Captain Don's Habitat

Watson, besides my hat, grab my mask, fins, and snorkel.
If I am going to visit that old pirate, I have to be prepared!

WAITING FOR YOU!! IT IS IN HIGH 70's to low 80's call...

Where are the two of you heading. You know that layers of civilized behavior have not yet migrated to some areas of the south. They eat possum and roadkill sauteed in hog fat. You can't find a decent bagel until you hit Ft. Lauderdale. Rugulah? What's a rugulah?

Love, SSH




Violet,

If you run into Jimmy Buffet down there, remind him that he owes me a "Boat Drink" too. We can't shoot holes in our freezers -- we live in them. Happy diving.
Marion



Violet-
I hope you are wearing your sunscreen and glad to see you have a brimmed hat. What about your bodyguard? He looks unprotected, but content. Ain't missing nothin here. Except maybe American Idol.

Di




Have a happy Purim!
We just got back power, we had a 45 hour blackout, and the temperature in the house was a bit cold, so southern vacations sound inviting!

Rachelle




Violet
, You are making me feel cold and sick ( in my heart for the Caribbean ).

Dear Cloud Lady and Friends;

I found Violet at Capt. Don's.
Just where I knew she would be.
She was sitting and soaking up the local atmosphere and a few drinks.
She definitely has the right idea.
Waiter- two more boat drinks.
I decided to join her in soaking up the local "atmosphere" while waiting for the sunset.
I takes my mind off the snow and other stuff that has been bothering me back home.
I think I will jump in the warm sea a half dozen times or so before shackling Violet to a canon ball or something so she can't get away again and bring her home with me tomorrow.
To bad this place is like New England, in that you can't get there from here. I am going to have to take four different flights to get us home where the Cloud Lady (Judy) will be waiting to give us a big hug and kiss.
Maybe I can just convince her to come down here instead, but I know I have too many commitments back home.

Sunset is clouded out and we don't get to see the green flash. So what, it is just nice to sit and enjoy the view.
See you soon.

BiFTB








Dear Cloud Lady and Friends;

We are back home on the farm again.
BiFTB has me chained to his camera bag, so I can't go far.
The Sun is shining bright, the snow is all melted and it is relatively warm, 54 degrees.
So I guess being back isn't so bad.
But the call of the open road and far off places still sings to me.
Anybody got a hacksaw?

Love and Hugs

Violet T Bear

P.S . While down in the islands I did do a little more than sit in the sun and try hard to stay hydrated.
