Etta takes the Big Apple.....

.............. the continuing adventures of Etta the traveling Meerkat! After a successful driving lesson, Etta and I hit th eroad with my sister for the Big Apple and the One Of A Kind Show. We treated Etta to a night in New Jersey near the Holland Tunnel... the drive had been long and tricky with lots of fog through the mountains so we decided to unwind a bit before turning in...

Etta seemed to like the Brooklyn Beer we let her sample

she started regaling me with tales of her transatlantic journey - via Australia!

Etta partied a little too much and did NOT want to get up the next morning...

but she rallied and helped us set up for the show

while Etta had a lot of fun she did begin to get homesick for Heather of NiftyKnits so we popped onto etsy so Etta could say "hi" to her friends back home...

after visiting with her fellow Meerkats it was time to send Etta off on the rest of her journey. She was headed to California for Christmas with Sandie, another fellow etteam member. We dressed Etta in her new holiday tutu and carefully packed her up and sent her on her way....

to follow the rest of her adventures, join the fun on Facebook....
