Bed-In for Peace

Darrick and I spent our honeymoon at the Queen Elizabeth II Hotel in Montreal. It is a lovely, if non-descript concrete box of a hotel in the new part of Montreal's downtown. It is famous because it is the hotel where John Lennon and Yoko Ono held their famous bed-in for peace on their honeymoon in 1969. Their room was just down the hall from ours, with a discreet little brass plaque on the door.

This photo of my cats reminds me of photographs I have seen of John and Yoko during their bed-in. It's also a good photo of the size difference between the two of them. Oberon is a cat of substance, and Diva is just little all around. They've been staging daily bed-ins for nearly 14 years, and have generally gotten all of their demands...mostly pettings and food.
