Duffy mad, Duffy smash!

Actually, my tiny bears were not angry.

"Yes we were!" said Tiny Duffy. "When are we going to go to Earl of Sandwich???"

Duffy's Spring-ish Voyage - Part 16

Yes, Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May are still in Sauder Village! I THINK this is still the 1910 Homestead (inside the house itself).

Biscuits!  It was a little warm so forgive their anachronism there.

"That is a lot of kitchen instruments," said Tiny Shellie May.

"I am not sure what this is," she added, "but I see cookie cutters!"

I think this might be the parlor? I love the stereoscope!

One of the bedrooms, presumably for a child.

Wait, two children.

"Can we live here?" asked Tiny Duffy.

Another bedroom.

Very womanly.

And in the basement....

"PIE!" cried Tiny Duffy.

The bears were both very disappointed to find it was not real. :(

"Goodbye, 1910 house!"

Spot the Bears

Where are Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May?

Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May going to Downtown Disney

Our walk to Downtown Disney passed through the lovely Grand Californian Hotel!

Too bad Tiny Shellie May's new hat hid her face. :(

Also the shadows did.

This is outside the Lego Store in Downtown Disney.

Halloween Morning

This is Halloween morning, 2012! (That's October 31.)

Tiny Shellie May joined me and Miss D for breakfast.

So the cups had a two men excitedly looking at a calculator. I quite seriously wonder if one of them typed "58008" and was showing it off upside-down to the others? How else to explain why the two men are on the table, they're so excited about the calculator, while the woman is less interested?

OK, so probably not (unless maybe the businessmen didn't attend public school). But I still don't get the picture.

Supper and Sewing

So my BFF (Best Florida Friend) and my mom were both flying in that night, so we ordered pizza and sauceless boneless wings for a late supper!

My costume was done but we needed some last minute work...oh yes, and a hat for Tiny Shellie May.

The pizza was MUCH better than it looked!

Meeting (small) Santa Duffy!

So we high-tailed it to World of Disney so I could buy what I really wanted...a cute 9" Santa Duffy!!! I fell in love with him the moment I first saw a picture...and I did a test drive at my workplace (!!!) during lunch in exchange for a $15 gift card. So he was almost free!

I took Shellie May to Marceline's Confectionary and someone pointed out how cute she was! I said she came from Japan (I said that a lot this trip) but said if she liked Christmas at all, she should definitely buy Santa Duffy! And pulled him out of my bag to show her.

Shellie May hugged Santa Duffy as soon as we got back to the room. "I am so happy to meet you and your outfit is VERY cute and you are so cute and sweet-looking and I think we are going to have a GREAT time together and I am glad you are with us and here!!!!"

I think Santa Duffy was stunned silent.

Happy Halloween, Disneyland!

This was actually the day before Halloween, 2012.

"I am so excited to see you too, Disneyland!" said Shellie May.

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Good night, California Adventure!

It was right around time at Disney California Adventure.

"I am so excited to visit!!!" said Shellie May.

New Disneyland Adventures!

So in October 2012, my friend (Miss D) drove Shellie May, Duffy, Tiny Duffy, and Tiny Shellie May to Disneyland! To spend Halloween at Disneyland!!!

Shellie May kept me very good company on the long drive.

"Are we there yet? I'm so excited to be going to Disneyland aren't you it sounds like it will be so much FUN and I know I've been to Tokyo Disney Sea but this is different and I'm with you and your friends and we are going to have SUCH A GOOD TIME!"


"Oh wow!" said Shellie May. "You can see Mickey's Fun Wheel from our hotel, can't you? That's so neat!"

Is this the end??

So we all left Disneyland and started the long drive home. We stopped for supper at McDonald's, and my camera worked again, long enough to take this picture!


So, what now? No more Disneyland adventures....

Except, long story short, I went to Disneyland again in late October/early November 2012. And ALL my bears went, tiny and not...and I even got a new Duffy!

So, LOTS more Disneyland pictures!  Hooray!

Nearing the end of our trip

Wait time board, for those of you who like that sort of thing.

We went to the Main Street Cinema to watch some random acts of cartoon animal cruelty. Which is NOT AT ALL funny in real life but somehow is kind of funny when it involves 1920s animals.

And...then my camera battery died! Oh no! :(

We went on Haunted Mansion Holiday and Pirates of the Caribbean, and ate at Cafe Orleans.

It revived just slightly to let me take a couple more pictures...on our way out from Disneyland for this trip!

Look! They kind of got their picture with Mickey!

This is much safer

"Tiny Shellie May!" snapped Tiny Duffy. "Don't fall!"

"I wasn't going to fall," she murmured.

Tiny Shellie May, that is not very ladylike

Fortunately, there is not water on the other side of that fence, or Tiny Shellie May would be very frightened.

Then again, she wouldn't have shown us her bear bottom.


Sorry. I won't make that joke again. Seriously. (unlessIforget)

Ropes are in the way

Tiny bears have no problem seeing through the ropes. Or even fitting through.

Larger humans, there are some problems.

Monday, November 12, 2012


"Duck, Tiny Shellie May!" said Tiny Duffy.

She did.

"Wait," she said. "Why are you laughing?" she asked. "We are very small and that duck is very big. What if we look like food?"

"I didn't think of that!" said Tiny Duffy.

"Will we be safe back here?"

Water and People Bones

"Are you still scared of the water, Tiny Shellie May?" asked Tiny Duffy.

"Sort of," murmured Tiny Shellie May. "Hey..."

"Do you think this bone cage might be haunted?" she teased.

"Don't be silly," said Tiny Duffy.

"Boo," I said.

"NOT FUNNY!" yelled Tiny Duffy.

Spooky Blue Light

"This place is very spooky," said Tiny Shellie May.

"You don't think there are ghosts?" asked Tiny Duffy.

"Don't worry," I said. "That flimsy net will protect you."

"Hold me," said Tiny Duffy.

Ah! Me treasures!

Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May are as precious as glued-down gold and silver!

"I wish these coins were me treasure," grumbled Tiny Duffy.

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Ugh! This mountain is very tall!

"I will help you climb," said Tiny Shellie May.

Secretly, she thought that climbing would get her farther away from the water.

Tiny bears with treasure

Another pretty view!

"This would also be a pretty view," said Tiny Duffy, "if we could get inside the treasure chest."
