      It seems my Aunts have been in communication (just how scary is that, them talking about me behind my back!). Anyway, Aunt E has so much to do, and so said that Aunt C should post recent photos of me on this thread.

      However Aunt C is also very busy with “things that have to be done”, and even when she does get on CV she has to catch up with her own summer trip photos first, so she won’t have time for those of me before she goes to Singapore next week. She won’t let me go with her – apparently she thinks I might “abscond” I think the word is, and try to get back to Thailand!

      In fact she has been so busy that she hasn’t even been able to fit in another trip to Norway this month as she had intended (probably it’s for the best as those traditional ships she wanted to go on seem to have been having problems, so we might never have made it to Trondheim anyway!}

      I’ve had a wonderful time, including a successful Secret Mission which I am longing to tell you about. But I’d better leave that for Aunt C to tell you when she eventually catches up with all my photos and diaries – just be prepared for a lot of gushy stuff about being so very proud of me.

      I’ll now have to start my journey home by post before Aunt C goes away. She will post me next Monday.September 20th. By the time I get to Norway, your work fortnight should be nearing its end, so please look out for me Daddy. I don’t want to get forgotten at some post office again!
      And as soon as I arrive please let my dear Aunt C know that I have returned home safely.

      Love from Lookchin

        Well, feeling rather emotional about saying goodbye and not being able to accompany him in person as I had originally envisaged, I placed Lookchin really comfy in his little box and took him to the post office on the Monday as mentioned above, only to find that it was one of those really confusing Scottish holidays and the post office was closed! So he was actually posted the following day, Tuesday 21st September, on my way to the airport.

        He took just over a week to make the journey in the opposite direction, so should be arriving in Trondheim about NOW. Please let me know when he has arrived.

        I’m sure many reading this must be thinking “Goodness what a fuss, it’s only a teddy bear”, but believe me, HE is not “just a teddy bear” – he completely took over my life during his short visits here. I’ll tell you all about it just as soon as I know he is safely back in Trondheim.

          Just a quick word that he popped out of his box, gasping for air, yesterday afternoon.

          And, yes, he is not "just a teddy bear"... he is a charming world-traveler!

          So now, I can't wait to see what he was up to over there.

            So very glad and relieved to hear he got home safely. Now I have the peace of mind to start sorting through his diaries and photos of Scotland (as well as mine of Trondheim and Singapore!) He has indeed been charming . . . . but I am going to save the best news of that till last!

            Meanwhile give the most adorable and loved bear in the whole wide world a special cuddle from me.

                    We are just so alike - sometimes.

                    Have you noticed that for the most part, this thread is only visited by Lady C and Lady E?

                        Sometimes I wish LC would want to travel the world around and become a world-famous bear promising unity, solidarity and togetherness.

                        Maybe he is slowly, really slowly, become a small sensation?

                          Yes he is :- Check to see if you received a PM sent Monday – Subject: Lookchin’s secret mission – ‘cos with bad timing I sent it just as the board went down for the upgrade.

                            Nope, I don't think that PM came through... what has he been up to now, has he been misbehaving again?

                              Quite the opposite - I'll resend the message in just a moment or two.

                                Lookchin’s dear Aunt E wrote to tell me I should just carry on posting the remaining batch of his photos and diaries from his summer travels in Scotland. But that message is already a whole month ago! So I hope it’s still ok to start posting stuff, E.

                                Not that the order really matters anyway. I have the distinct feeling that if Lookchin had been doing all the posting himself, the order would be completely random! Certainly the various files he left with me are in a complete messy mix-up! There are Lookchin photos turning up in the middle of Norway (various), This is Singapore, F1, Rookie and Pro, miscellaneous, (especially), and (even) project 365! – now that couldn’t possibly be my fault could it …

                                Actually it now seems that E and I didn’t need to have worried about any of this AT ALL, and needn’t have posted ANYTHING ourselves either, because the sharp eyed and alert CV family members amongst you will have noticed that a New Member joined the forum recently!

                                On the 4th October 2010 in fact.
                                The bear of understanding, tolerance and hope it says in his signature.

                                No offers to help catch up mind you … but then he didn’t take any copies of his stuff back to Norway, though he seems pleased that at least someone had the foresight and quick thinking to grab a screen shot of that most transient of displays …
                                And yes, that’s displays, plural, because it was also there on the arrival of the huge new CVF upgrade!
                                I think this is generally known as a “double whammy”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
