I would love to come to Jordan again—it's my favourite Middle Eastern country. Looking at my diary, I'm judging the UK Miniature Nationals the previous weekend and it would be very easy to come over to Jordan from there. I'll have to think about that.

I've just had confirmation on the dates from the show secretary Ghalia Nooreddin. It's October 16/17/18th. Diana Cantey and I are definitely going and hopefully Carol Maginn as well. We are flying directly to Amman from Chicago on Royal Jordanian Airlines on October 14th

You lucky women! And do take LOTS OF PICTURES with those cameras, especially the ones with lens over TWO inches! We all want to share, if we can, with the Jordanian Nationals.

I would LOVE to go! smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif I'm even strange enough to daydream about it sometimes... But again, it's the time/money problem with me. I hope it goes beautifully though, and I'll be there in spirit!

You bet we'll take photos and I'll do a write up for various websites. I think we'll have 2 days to sight see as well. I'm sure Diana will take her laptop and I'll have my iphone to give daily reports.

Dear Princess Alia,

Thank you so much for your very generous invitation to come see your beautiful country.

I am so excited to tell you that last night my husband finally gave me his blessing to come to Jordan!!! It was important to get his permission - especially since the show falls on our 12th wedding anniversary.

I am so thrilled I can't believe I'm coming over! I will bring my big camera and huge lens! WOW... I'm just beside myself with happiness to come over and see all the beautiful horses and your royal stud.

What a dream come true!!! Can't wait to meet you in person.

Ya Hoo!!!

Carol

WOW Carol, I'm so thrilled that you are coming !!! Wonderful news. That is so exciting for you—I love Jordan, and you will too.

We'll talk about arrangements and all fly out together. We can go on a direct flight to Amman on Royal Jordanian Airlines from Chicago. I'm going to get us booked in at the same hotel as the show officials if I can—probably the Intercontinental. We will have 2 days to sight see after the show.

I am so excited!!! I keep singing "We're off on the road to see Jordan" - sung to the tune of "We're off on the road to Moracco" I couldn't understand why Diana wasn't laughing and then I learned she had not seen one of my favorite Bing Crosby, Bob Hope movies! Thats how old I am.

I wonder - may I ride a camel like Bing and Bob? I have NEVER ridden a camel and would really like to do that... Anyway - I'm up for anything and everything!

Carol

Wish I could attend the show again this year, but I dont think it will be possible for me to come over. Just found my dream job and will feel bad asking for a vacation. But maybe if we are not to busy here there might be a slight chance I will be heading down to Jordan in October. Love this show, the atmospher is so nice and relaxed! and I miss spending time in the stable with the super cute Monarcos (my favorite at the Royal Stables), love him! wub.gif
Else I will be looking forward to see all the great pictures from the show smile.gif
