We are home… well we got home at 3:00 AM this morning… Lots of flight delays and rerouting to get home, we end up being rerouted to Boston, it was the closed airport to Providence where we left from on Wednesday… It is an odd feeling landing in Boston and having to drive to Providence in a rental so we could pick up our car… At least in the rental car I was able to get out the bag and stretch. I am glad to be home, I wished we had more time to explore Saint Louis, but this was a work trip for my owner and I was lucky enough tag along. I was given permission to purchase a souvenir, I had hoped they would have a snow glob but they did not so I went for a magnet from the St. Louis airport gift shop. Still very tired and my owner is currently putting together the receipts for his expense report… this has been logistically one of the worst trips I have ever been… but at least I got to see the arch, have hotel room coffee… Oh I did not post that picture yesterday… I should post it with these… one moment having Spike reconnect the camera… there it is, thanks Spike… anyway I am going off topic again, must be from being tired. I hope everypony has a relaxing weekend.
My owner worked really late, an 11 hour day today for him. I stayed in the hotel and read and was trying to keep myself from going stir crazy, I was not expecting it would be such a long day… tomorrow we fly back home tomorrow night. I did not get to do much out here, but then again it was a free trip so I can’t really complain. I hope everypony else is having a great week.
Well today has been a rough day.. It started off with going the airport with my owner and having the ticketing agent telling us his tickets were reserved but not confirmed. He had to contact the work travel agency and have them straighten it out. Our flight to Detroit was bumpy and landed late due to weather. I felt stuffed in side the green bag… I dislike the green bag but if I want to come along and travel and not be check bagged I have to make due with the green messenger bag. Our flight leaving Detroit was delayed due to weather, we arrived in St. Louis later then we had hoped. When we got to the museum to see if the trams were still running we found that they were not for the day, they had been sold out. So we walked around the park that the Gateway Arch is in. Not many people were outside, probably cause it is winter still and there was some snow still on the ground. We than got to the hotel room, it probably is the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in, which is not too bad cause I am small to began with. My owner checked his work emails and is not to happy about the store pilot tomorrow… For right now he is finishing up ironing his clothes then going to get a bite to eat. I am exhausted from travel and going to take a nap. Hopefully tomorrow will not be to bad and we will be able to go out to do some exploring after he gets back.
We are heading out to Saint Louis tomorrow morning, we will have some time there to do some exploring. I am hoping to see the Saint Louis Gateway Arch tomorrow evening. My owner has to do work on a client site on Thursday and part of Friday before we head home that night. I am nervous and excited, it has been a while since we traveled. The first leg of our trip will take to us to an hour an half layover in Detroit, then to Saint Louis, we should arrive around 3:30 in the afternoon, hopefully after we get the rental car and if the weather is cooperative we will head straight to the Gateway Arch to get some pictures and if is open we may go to the observation deck. I am excited and a little nervous cause of the health troubles my owner had with the last trip we went on. The doctors have said there is nothing to worry about, so I will trust them, I am sure this is just going to be a routine trip, for me at least, I get to do sight seeing and when my owner is at work I get to sit in hotel and figure out what we will do after he gets back from work. I hope everypony is enjoying their week so far.
It has been a slow weekend… My owner’s work was suppose to have him in San Diego this weekend, I was really excited, but on Thursday the trip was rescheduled until the 12th. Also there is a chance we may end up in St. Louis by the end of the week, waiting to see on that, nothing has been booked as of yet. We also went to a local Brony Meetup on Saturday, it was different and not what I had expected. I suppose it my owner’s age difference, he is in his early 30s and most of the people there were early 20s. From the people we spoke with none had been to any conventions, some of them hope to go to Bronycon in August, hopefully they will be there cause more friends to be with a con would be fun. Also we found out a few of them meet up in a local card shop on Saturday’s to play the mlp trading card game, we may drop in on that to play. And on a side note… my owner forgot to take pictures at the meet up, so for content I leave you with a sketch of Pinkie Pie and Myself. I hope everypony has had an enjoyable weekend.
It has been an interesting day… First my owner had his check up and has been cleared to travel, his job wants to have him go to California… as excited as I am to get to travel with him, I am still a little nervous for him and hope he is not rushing things, but if the doctor says he is clear I should trust the doctor’s advice. Second as you can see Sweetie Bell visited to play with Scootaloo, as you can tell by my mane being frizzled these two drove me crazy as my owner and his friends played the mlp trading card game. I hope that my owner or any of his friends does not get a plush Apple Bloom other wise I will be in real trouble…. Don’t get me wrong, I am glad the Scootaloo got to play with a filly her own age, but they just get into everything! Spike was sound asleep, or rather I think he may have been pretending to avoid the responsibility… I have no way to prove it, so he is off the hook this time. Needless to say my OCD has kicked in and I had to clean up the toys they played with on the computer desk and put them all back to their proper display positions. Scootaloo is asleep now, she is very tired, it was nice of my owner’s friend to bring Sweetie Bell over, I just wish I had a little heads up to plan for entertaining fillies. I hope everypony has had a good start to their week.

We received issues 15 and 16 of the MLP comics in the mail the other day. with my owner returning to work and all the other medical insurance things we had been dealing with I did not get to read them until tonight. The story is a two part story and since it about jumping around various books chasing a bookworm before he ruins all the books in the library the art work is all over place and gives a variety of settings and stories. I don’t want to spoil it for any pony so I am not giving much details. However I did feel the ending wrapped up a little too quick, but overall it follows suit like the rest of the IDW comics. I hope everypony has been having a pleasant week thus far.
Last night my owner and I visited our friends who run a podcast called “The MediaFile”, they needed a perspective of some one who did not attend a convention they went to called TempleCon, which from what I have gathered is a Steam Punk Retro Futuristic, Board Game, Card Came, Video Game and a non My Little Pony convention… Anyway if you are interested in hearing my owner act silly with is friends the podcast link is: http://themediafile.wordpress.com/2014/02/17/the-mediafiles-podcast-episode-019-templecon-or-the-real-housewives-of-east-providence/ I was there but did not speak much cause well I am a plush pony after all and really it was non My Little Pony related. In other news the trip my owner and I were a little upset about missing to San Diego has been postponed till March, which means as long as the follow up doctors appointment goes well for my owner and he gets cleared to travel again we may have an opportunity to go for his job. But for now we are just still taking it one day at time. I hope everypony has had a good start to their week today.
It is a lazy Saturday afternoon. This morning was spend running a few errands and getting lunch. It is snowing again here in New England and we are under a winter storm advisement till tomorrow morning. I am taking a break from the usual routine of reading and playing with Spike and Scootaloo today. Even though things are back to normal here I am still worried about my owner and am watching what he is doing today. He took out a model kit he started last year, it iss a 1/350 scale replica of the R.M.S TITANIC. We already have one finished on the top of the computer desk, but this one he is working on he had also purchased a large amount of photo etched brass parts. Little brass window frames, benches, and other odds and ends that I guess belong on a ship… even little brass people. I suppose it is good to see my owner having other hobbies then MLP but then again I feel left out cause there is not much I can do to help but watch… I thought I would try researching the subject, we have plenty of books on the ship, but it appears my owner is well read on the ship. He is even reviewing photos and plans in books to add features not include on the model. I must say the amount of work and passion on the subject matter is impressive. I am starting to think this may be due his recent health issue of why he all of sudden feels the need to complete this kit he has been working over the past year… or maybe it is just the snow. I hope everypony else is having a fun and safe weekend.
