Much much good luck on their interviews - may they sail through :thumbs:

I'll try to bring back two VISAs but I'm not a very good pickpocket. :lol:

Seriously though, thanks for your kind thoughts. I'm going through all documents and grilling the parents (ask any man, let alone your father, when he was married :lol: ) with every possible question I can think of, just to get them prepared. The only thing that worries me is that they don't have birth certificates but I'm hoping that with all the documentation I've amassed there won't be a problem. I've got the maps printed up and I'm going out to get the envelope in a few minutes. :thumbs: If I wasn't such a calm person, I would have sh*tted a Yaris by now. :lol:

If I wasn't such a calm person, I would have sh*tted a Yaris by now.

I'm not doing a picture for that

Damn, I was hoping you would. :lol:

:star:

More snow, MERDE!!!!! I was hoping it was only going to be a light dusting but in a Yaris a mm of snow is an avalanche. :lol: I will pack a folding shovel (and a willing suspension of disbelief :lol: ).

So many wonderful tidings for a successful trip to Montreal, I'm overwhelmed and humbled at the generousity and outpouring of good will. I thank all you wonderful people who have already wished me good luck and those who will soon enough (and Len too :lol:).

Getting some heavy metal driving tunes together for the trip, has anyone seen my Starland Vocal Band CD? :lol:
