Hello to all you wonderful people out there in the big wide world.
My name is Theodore Dingelberry and I am a travelling companion to my very close friend Antoinette.
Can you believe it? Here I am on my little red rubber dingy (especially made for me – I might just add) in a swimming pool at a very, ritzy hotel on the sea front – where? Wait for it – on holiday in Dubai, Yaaay!!!
I flew all the way over from Africa in this beautiful big silver jet. I sat with Antoinette in the cabin (no being stuffed away in suitcases with other little creatures that were travelling with us).
It was a very long flight, but it did go rather quickly. This was because Antoinette kept me on her lap most of the time. The stewards on the airplane were so caring, checking to see if I was comfortable and did I want anything to eat or drink?
Well, of course I am a little furry Elf and I never do eat or drink, at least food and drink that humans can see. Only I can see what I eat and drink, because I have special eyes. I have lots to eat and drink tucked in my little suitcase that I brought along.
The stewards checked to see if I wanted a pillow or blankie, but of course their stuff was far too big for a little person like me. Anyway Antoinette explained to them that I always travel with my own pillow and blankie
Humans, I have found, are so kind and loving and particularly here on the plane; they make such a fuss over me, asking questions about where I come from and where am I going to. The children especially; they want to hold and hug me. Some get so excited when they are able to hug me that they nearly squash the breath out of me.
Antoinette is so good about that sort of thing and she watches over me, explaining to the children not to hold me too tight.
Back in Africa, I live in a lovely home with Antoinette, Gillmor, her Fiancé and four beautiful young ladies, their daughters. Then there are Dizzy and Bizzy, the Jack Russell’s’, Slinky, the cat and finally the fishies!
I miss them all, because our home is so full of fun and laughter, but then, I do have Antoinette and Gillmor all to myself; that’s when I’m not being fussed over by other humans as I travel.
Antoinette takes me with her wherever we go and I don’t spend time, all on my own in the hotel room. I know that might sound a little selfish on my part, but I love her so much and for me it’s very special to be in her company. When she does go out on her own or with Gillmor, I am also happy, because they need to spend time together.
Gillmor is a very successful business man who works in Dubai. Antoinette and I are just visiting and very happy to be with him. It’s good for him too, because he is a very long way from the family that he loves and misses. I’m very pleased that I don’t have to be apart from Antoinette like Gillmore is; I’m always with her, sleeping on her pillow at night, sitting atop her computer at the university where she works during the day; then homeward bound to my sisters, dogs, # one cat and fishies, all the while, sitting on the dashboard of Antoinette’s car, watching her drive.
I am going to tell you more as we holiday together in this special place, don’t forget to tune in on Saturday December 30 2017, as I show you pictures of our visits to the malls, museum and many other interesting places in Dubai.
