  • I went to IndyGenCon, the largest board and card game convention in the WORLD, in 2010 and it was a total blast. I plan on going this year. Zhu Xiong loves board and card games, so I'm inviting her on her first vacation.

    Today the badges went on sale.





    "Ooo, yes, the 4 day pass, goodie!" said Zhu Xiong.



    Zhu Xiong picked this for our avatar.





    "Longest countdown EVERRRR!" she exclaimed.



    Duffy and Shellie May will be happy to go, but I think Zhu XIong is the most excited out of all of us.

    • JillT, I love watching the antics of your bear family so much !!

      • (and yours, too, Eeee-va)!!! Such stylish and adventurous bears around here!!!

        • Shellie May, I'm glad Eeee-va and I aren't the only active users on here...it's really slowed down the last 2 years, waaah, and I miss everyone's adventures. I think the idea is catching on elsewhere. My sister just informed me that Build-A-Bear has a facebook page (I'm not on facebook so I haven't seen it myself) where people can post pictures of those bears.

          • Thank you, Shellie May! I love JillT's bears' reading adventures!

            My little ShellieMay went to a book sale. Here's our swag

            • Happy Valentine's Day everyone.



              A special greeting to Diznygirl, who recommend the book "The Valentine Bears" to us last year. I purchased it for da bears and now that it's Valentine's Day again, I woke them up to read it.









              "See, I TOLD you there were too many good books to waste my life sleeping," said Shellie May. Duffy was already getting back into his pajamas "until the next photo op," he informed me.

              • My sister said Duffy's outfit is a guard's uniform and not for Valentine's Day.

                "It's red and I haven't worn it yet," said Duffy.

                "Yeah, whatevvvvs," said Shellie May in Duffy's defense.

                LOL!

                • JILL!! I'm glad you got the book, I hope you and your bears enjoyed it. I probably haven't seen it in almost 30 years, but now I feel like I want to track it down again. Actually I think my original copy is in storage somewhere along with all of my old Berenstain Bears books, hehe.


                  I'm still around and reading this thread, BTW. Just haven't been very active. I still enjoy everyone's picture stories and maybe soon I'll get off my lazy butt and post some more of my own, LOL.

                  • Yes, me and da bears enjoyed the book, Dizngrl

                    • Happy belated Valentine's Day, JillT and bears!

                      Diznygrl! Glad to see you around! I'd love to see more of your photos; they're so great! How are you and your bears?

                      • Today we went on our first day trip of the year. Da bears are each wearing a new top.

                        We went first to Dismals Canyon in Phil Campbell, Alabama.



                        Duffy's shoes didn't come with laces but he likes them anyway. Shellie May was prepared for hiking into the canyon by wearing her Skechers.







                        Duffy got a look at Rainbow Falls.



                        We hiked down some more and Shellie May looked at it also.



                        "How bizarre, how bizarre," quoted Duffy from the OMC song of this tree.



                        "Ditto," said Shellie May.



                        Even though I carried them da bears still wanted to lounge around.







                        Next we went to tour the Rosenbaum House built by Frank Lloyd Wright in Florence, AL.

                          • Awesome!! And Duffy's shoes look very cute even without laces

                            • Lovely adventure, JillT! I need to post photos too (Shellie May and I went on vacation!)...but can't do it from my phone!

                              • Shellie May = Duffy says, "thanks for the compliment, hey, at least I put shoes ON and didn't leave the house in slippers".

                                Also, did you all know that there is a new friend for Duffy? Stella Lou or something like that, a bunny. I'm not going to get it but I know some of you have Gelatoni and Tippy Blue so I thought I'd mention it in case you didn't know...

                                Eeee-va, can't wait to see where you took Shellie May. Don't you have a Duffy anymore? I know you said Shellie May is your favorite travelling companion but I wondered...

                                Comment


                                • Yes, there's a thread here for StellaLou! I think she's cute and I like her story (but I LOVE American Waterfront!)...but I really prefer the SS-sized plush, so I'm not planning to get her unless/until they make one for her. The very earliest I could hope for such a plush would be spring 2018, since they came out for 3 Spring Voyages and then the Year of Wishes starting in April 2016....

                                  And yes, Duffy is still with me and he is well. (I actually have a 12" one and a 17" one, though the 17" one is so big he never gets to go anywhere.) My Shellie May is my favorite, though, so she does get to go with me most places. I need to take Duffy out with her sometime, but if I'm actually with another human on a trip, two bears can get a bit awkward. Maybe I need to go on an alone trip sometime but but but money!

                                  (I am lucky that my Duffy is a patient bear and not jealous at all. )

                                  Let's see if these images work!

                                  My best friend came out to visit and she loves butterflies. We were able to get a FREE pass to the Desert Botanical Garden through the library, and they'd just opened their seasonal butterfly exhibit!

                                  "Free nature!"


                                  Such a clear day! And very warm.


                                  Inside the butterfly tent!




                                  We both thought this caterpillar was so cute. What does it turn into?


                                  WOW! From polka dots to stripes!


                                  "Maybe if I sit very quietly, a butterfly will come land on me..."


                                  "No? Well, okay. I'll go look at them instead!"


                                  "She matches my eyes!"


                                  I think this is a teddy bear cholla. Please do not hug it.


                                  Did you know Arizona is the hummingbird capital of the United States? I did not.


                                  Creosote bush!


                                  "Wow! That is big."


                                  "NATURE!"

                                  • Eeee-va...your SS ShellieMay is always so cute!!! I love the butterfly adventure!! I didn't know that about the hummingbirds! I find the Disney Parks 9" Duffy and Shellie are a great travel size (but not as beautifully constructed or as poseable as the TDS SS for sure...the NYC pre Duffy Bears are, tho, and they are a nice floppy posable portable 12" size)!! Oh JillT I got so overexcited about the StellaLou bunny and posted about a million boring words in another thread but I will always like the bears best of all...esp Duffy...and thats why my neice decided I should use the screen name Shellie May...because I LOVE DUFFY <3 !

                                    Comment


                                    • Eeee-va, my friends live in Avondale and love hummingbirds; they told me Arizona is the hummingbird capital.

                                      That thing that Shellie May says is so big is a century plant because it blooms approximately once in a hundred years. They have those in Marin County also.

                                      Other than the rare occasion like when I went to the Indy 500 museum and Shellie May decided to stay home and get her beauty sleep, my Duffy and Shellie May are pretty much glued to each other's hip and travel together. I use one of the giant Disney plastic bags and their little bench, two little clear plastic containers, and their little suitcases with the pawsport and some clips in them to hike all over the place LOL! Da bears insist that I carry them and then they'll just tell me when they want to see something closer and I put them down.

                                      Your Shellie May is wearing an outfit you designed for her, correct? She sort of looks like a model in the first picture, and then a swashbuckling gypsy (instead of a swashbuckling pirate) in the others. My Duffy says, "way cool" and is waving at her.

                                      • Thanks, both of you!

                                        shellie may, the 9" Duffy is very well-constructed and cute proportions similar to the SS-sized plush. But yes, the craftsmanship of the TDS ones are definitely better. I'm not familiar with the 12" pre-Duffy Disney Bears, though. (I've always wanted a Disney Bear that was all gray or all black, though.)

                                        JillT, you sure do some great adventures with your bears! I took my 17" Duffy to Disneyland for one day and he was SO HEAVY with his Build a Bear shoes! I'm glad I did it, but I don't see myself doing it again.

                                        I'd always heard that about the century plants too, but I've seen them blooming so often out here, it doesn't seem to me like it could be possible that they only bloom once every 100 years. Wikipedia says that they actually bloom only once, at the end of their life, which is 10-30 years. It also says that after they die, shoots come out at the base and continue growing. So that explains why I've seen so many bloom, and why the plants I've observed, anyway, don't appear to die after.

                                        And yes, I made almost everything my Shellie May wears regularly anymore, except her kimono.

                                        "Oh oh oh! Hi, JillT! This is Shellie May. You are very sweet! ::waves to Duffy:: Hi Duffy!!!!!!"

                                        We went on a little hike at Papago Park, which is free to visit. Free is right up my alley now.


                                        Steeper than I am used to walking! Good thing Shellie May was wearing shoes (and being carried in my giant purse).


                                        Nice place to rest.


                                        "But what are we climbing toward...?"


                                        "OH!"


                                        And yes, Arizona's first governor, George W. P. Hunt, was entombed in this pyramid, along with several members of his family. That's not creepy at all. Nice view, though.

                                        • Da bears are dressed and eagerly anticipating my sister and ROCKGIRL’S arrival. They’re visiting for ten days.


                                          Yes, Rockgirl, who has been living in my sister’s house since 2010 when she was born, is actually venturing out of the four walls. Some of my bears have met her either when I visited with them or when they were living at my sister’s before moving to Tennessee, but for many of them, they have only heard about their cousin.


                                          “Wow, Rockgirl is getting on a plane? She must REALLY want to come here,” said Tillie, who remembers her ordeal coming over from England.


                                          “Oh, I can’t wait to meet her and to give her a Swiss kiss,” said Lo♥ey.


                                          Shellie May is wearing Nashville music attire and her Nashville country boots, in pink of course, and with a silver guitar on the sides.


                                          P.S. – My sister’s Roaming Roger has acquired a Champaign/Urbana (Illinois) University t-shirt to add to his travelling attire.
