I wish Don had lived to come with us, he would have LOVED this! But, alas. He departed this Earthly Coil in October 2012. Miss him every single day.

It will be Georgia a/k/a Isis, and myself, two of the founding members of Goddesschess - making a special, very special, journey. We had hoped to lure Georgia's daughter Michelle (Goddess #3) to come along with us, and she may yet decide to do so, but she has been concentrating on establishing a new career in Entertainment Engineering since graduating last June with a double Major in Engineering (Civil and "Entertainment" Engineering, which encompasses everything from soup to nuts in the engineering world of putting live performances together). The little girl I first met in 1999 when she was 9 years old is now all grown up, and an uber-smart, sophisticated and - of course - gorgeously beautiful young woman. Michelle has accompanied us on our various adventures throughout the years, and embarked upon many of her own in the ensuing years.

Maison Newton II, August 2008.
This summer, Isis and I will be going to the Languedoc region of France for ten days, to visit an ancient homeland of the Great Mother Goddess, as well as pay tribute to the Cathars.
We will reminisce about the early days of the Goddesschess website, when it first came online on May 6, 1999, and how it all came about. And we will talk about what the future holds. We aren't getting any younger on the chronological calendar but of course, in our hearts, we are eternally young and gorgeous, darlings -- you know, the original Bambi (me) and Candi (Isis), those Goddesses of Las Vegas, the two, the only, the absolutely irresistable, irreplaceable and irrepressible Las Vegas Showgirls!!! WHOOP, WHOOP, WHOOP! I certainly hope to be around for another 30 years or so, blogging to the bitter end, but you never know what the Great Mother Goddess has in store for you. So, as my mother used to say, "MAKE HAY WHILE IT RAINS. HA!"
Yeah, make sense of that and you'll be well on your way to understanding moi, darlings :)))
Stay tuned! Just as the spring and summer brings the juices of life flowing back into Mother Earth to blossom forth, be fruitful and multiply, may the "sap" once again flow freely in these somewhat arthritic bones of my own, LOL! Sciatica be damned! I'll fly across the friggin' Atlantic Ocean strapped up standing all the way if I have to, down in the luggage compartment - the heated area with the pets (sometimes it hurts too much to sit for very long, OUCH!)
