Sniff – Sniff – Cry – Cry –

20130325-100220.jpgSafe travels my dear Bashful –

This morning was the day. Bashful left for his trip afar. None of us thought it was going to be as emotional as it was. We all woke up this morning and none of us were in a real talkative mood. Bashful was so excited last night that he didn’t go to bed until sometime in the early hours this morning. When I got him up this morning he was tired – but happy and excited.

We all had his favorite for breakfast – Coco Pebbles cereal – and talked about his new adventure. Mom/dad told him to be on his best behavior and that they didn’t want any phone calls or emails that he was misbehaving in any way.

Mom/dad took Bashful to his pediarocktrician yesterday. They gave him a clean bill of health and gave him a shot for motion sickness. I hope that it lasts his entire trip.

I, Bacon and Mouse Girl all said 20130801-153407.jpgour goodbye’s to the little guy this morning at the house. Mom/dad took him to the airport for his flight. Daddy said that mom totally collapsed and cried like there was a faucet turned on full force. Poor mom – she’s so sentimental like that. She just stood at the window watching the plane load up and take off. She wouldn’t even leave the airport until they couldn’t see the plane anymore. Poor thing – I’ll have to give her extra snuggles tonight.

Thank goodness Bashful got his Passrockport. He needed it this morning going through customs and checking in for his flight. Since he’s under age, the flight attendant said she would take good care of him. He even earned his wings – cool huh on Delta? For his flight meal, he is going to get rockstew. I *know* he will be excited about that. It’s one of his favorites.

The only thing we are not too sure about is the flight movie. Since it’s such a long flight, they are

showing Castaway. This kind of worries me. Let’s just hope that the movie doesn’t cross over into reality. I’m not too sure how Bashful would do stranded on a tropical island. He burns really easy.

So to the host family – you *know* who you are 🙂 He should be arriving in about 6-10 days. It’s a really, REALLY long flight – snorts. I hope you have loads of fun with Bashful and we can’t wait to read about his adventures. Take plenty of pictures and have FUN!

    It’s sad when a family member left the crib. But at least The Stone(s) are on tour again – YAY! I’m sure he will make friends with the airline rocks what they call “buns” for breakfast.

      That is so true Easy. He is very, VERY excited about his trip abroad – the location is still a secret until he arrives 🙂 I just hope he behaves himself and doesn’t get into too much trouble. XOXO – Bacon

        Hey….totally off subject – sorry Bashful – I think you live near me. Yes? Sort of? Maybe? Up the road North?

        We are in the south in Georgia. People say we talk funny here. XOXO – Bacon

        If I had a snout, I’d be snortin’ at that comment! (We talk funny here, too.) I ask because we share an interest in a newly refurbished B&B just up the road from moi. Where a dog lives and a President once lived. But it ain’t in Georgia. I wish they’d accept pets.

        arOOO, Stu

    I have a question about Bashful’s rock papa: Was he a rolling stone, too? Ha ha, I couldn’t resist, and I cannot wait to read all about Bashful’s grand tour!

      Yes, his daddy was a rolling stone and his mommy was creek pebble. Good combination huh? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
