The Delemer of the cases

The Delmer of the cases.

What a week....???? Big, small. middle size, Granny and I have been having discussions all week bout how big a case to take to camp. My list of things to take gets longer every day. I have a pencil and paper by me all the time, just so I can write things down when I get a special thought bout camp. 
Well I do get thoughts bout camp all day, but you know the things to take thought.
Granny is now saying she thinks I would have to send my luggage by boat if I want such a big case. I don't think I want that to happen. What if it sank, my band aids and lollies would all get wet.

I'm sure there will be more discussions next week.

This is what made Granny happy yesterday, she went felting. I don't know what it is about people who have hobbies, they mostly have lots of mess to clean up.
She comes home with piles of wet towels, piles of plastic and bubble wrap, plus a big smile on her face.

Our washing line is filled with soppy  plastic and towels, to dry out.
                                     Stuff was flapping every where.
This is one of the scarves that Granny made . I must say it is a pretty colour, even though making it was messy. 

This scarf was a dud...Does your Mum or Granny have duds. Well it has been screwed up in the bottom of a bag for nearly a year. Granny hated it. It was so drab, and well you know when Granny's dislike something. You can just tell. So it was her challenge to make it wearable.  So she put bright purple wool and some green and blue silk through it and now she says perhaps she MIGHT wear it to post a letter but that was all.
I don't know; if every one just had fur we wouldn't have any worries. No wet towels, or soppy plastic.
Just lovely soft fur that keeps you warm, is soft to touch, if you get dirty you can wash it. No more washing machines. No more washing lines. 
When will they get it???? 
I have had such a busy day washing I'm fair tuckered out.

Toast, peanut butter and Honey will just do the trick.
See you all next week. I hope we have the case problems sorted out.
Hugs Wilbur
Thank You to all my lovely followers.

My thought for the week.

  1. Hi Wilbur,

    Oh, the airplane that you will be on is huge and your suitcase won't be a problem. Carrying it through the airport - that is a different story. Do you have one with wheels?

    Granny does bee-u-tee-ful crafting, and the scarf would be great to pack for those chilly nights around the campfire.

    Heaps of Hugs

  2. Wilbur, the golden rule of travel is lay out all your clothess and all your money. Then double your money and halve the clothes. Or in your case, all those lollies and band aids. I'm sure that camp has plenty to spare.

    Felting isn't easy, so I admire Granny for giving it a go. You don't know if you don't try.

    Happy Sunday!


  3. Dear Wilbur,

    please think about reducing your luggage... what would the girls in the camp say if you brought more luggage then they did! As a boy, you don't need such a big suitcase!

    And yes, it would be great to have a fur like you, but this is just how we are. Personally, I think, if we had our own furry body, we wouldn't need teddy bears so much. So, I think it is better that way - you with fur, we without.

    Have a nice week and be good! Not too much arguing, Kay just wants to help you!


  4. Hay dear Kay,

    What a lovely old suitcases...
    I love that old nostalgic suitcases..
    And I love Wilbur to...big kiss for you
    little friend!

    Wat a bussy day for you Kay,
    and what a lovely crafting!

    Love from Marijke

  5. Oh man, now you've got Jack all in a tizzy about his suitcase, and he and LT go away on Friday! We think them humans need to have fur too, although it's a little warm right now, at least we can run around bear naked to cool down :o)

  6. You're such a clever boy, Wilbur - go, tell Mother Nature we all need fur and the world will be better! ;O) Your Granny is so talented with everything she does - and we're sure you'll solve your little case of suitcase trouble next week!

  7. Well Wilbur, whichever case you decide upon, have a great time at camp. xx

  8. you've got very interesting suitcases. they smell history, they can remember many things

  9. Hi, Wilbur. I agree with Prudence. That scarf would be great for chilly campfire nights. I can't believe it's time for camp again.

  10. I get so tickled reading about the "bears camp" plans. I just could not get going and my poor little sweet Abby...oop' she comes.. shhhhhh...I haven't mentioned camp to her anymore..and she seems just fine with it.
    So far!

  11. Hi Kay and Wilbur,

    Love the old suitcases and know what ever one you choose will be perfect. Just don't take too much as they get heavy carrying them.
    What fun doing the felting Kay, looks lovely.
    I remember seeing Hugh Fernley Wittingstall doing some felting and it does look like fun.

    Happy Thursday

  12. Lovely suitcases and a nice bear!
    About that rose you asked me, I don't know it anymore, I planted 8 years ago! But is a climber.

    Have a nice weekend,


  13. Wilbur you are so smart! That suitcase will be perfect for all the things you want to take to camp.

    What fun places granny takes you to!
    That cat was pretty neat!

    It wont be long now till camp. We are all so excited to see you again!
