Manny Goes to Spain – An Interview with Manny

Many of our readers know Manny as my lovable little bear who travels wherever I go.  Manny has been begging to go see Ute and her teddy bears in England for six months.   Vince and I both agree that Manny is old enough now to travel on his own.  Let’s see how he’s doing.

Mom:  Manny, you are getting to be such a big boy now, we’re going to do an interview for all the readers about your trip.   How are you feeling about flying out on your own to go see Ralph’s bear, Fanny, and Ute’s bear, Danny?

Manny:  Mom, you know I’m sooooooo excited.  I can’t EVEN sleep at night.

Mom:  What have you done to get ready?

Many goes shoppint
Many goes shopping.

Manny:   I had to get my Pawsport, and a suitcase at the Build-A-Bear Store.

Everything is so big
Everything is so big.

Mom:  Is that all you got there?  What was it like at the store?

Manny:  Oh, Mom, I just LOVED the Build-A Bear store!  It was soooooo big!  I got some cool sun glasses.  I’m ready to go to the beach.  Tell Ralph I want to go to the beach in Spain.  I have a new beach ball and a beach bag, too.  Mom, there were so many clothes in the store.  How come I don’t have clothes?

Many picks out a suitcase.

Mom:  They didn’t have any your size, Manny.  Those clothes are for big bears.  Don’t forget your sunscreen!

Manny uses Mom's American Express card for the first time.  Yikes!

Manny:  Oh yeah, I got some of that, too.  I love my red suitcase, Mom.  And I love my sunglasses.  Have you seen what’s in my suitcase?

Mom:  Tell me.

Manny:  I got a BIG jar of honey!  I have my travel guide, and my Spanish English dictionary.  And dad got me aspirin.  What’s that for, Mom?

Mom:  You may get a little nervous on the plane, so if you do, just ask the flight attendant for some water, and take one aspirin.  I notice you packed your favorite doggie blanket.   Sometimes it gets cold on the plane even though where you are going is nice and warm.  Be careful not to lose it, though, Manny.

Manny:  I’ll be careful with it.  I’ll take it to the beach to sit on.

Mom:  Hmmmm  Hope Ralph has a big washing machine.  What about presents for Fanny and Danny?

Manny:  Silly Mom.  You know I got them presents.  You helped me make them presents.  They are going to love them.

Mom:  Are you going to tell everybody what you made?

Manny:  Nope.  They’ll just have to wait till I show them to Fanny and Danny!

Mom:  Ok then, Manny.  It’s time to get you to bed, so you’ll be ready to go.  Tell everybody good-bye.

Manny:  Bye everyone.  See you in Spain.

All packed ready to go.
All packed ready to go.

  1. How cool you look Manny…..I can’t wait to meet you. I will have to pack my sunglasses too! My fur is darker so i don’t need suncream I think… but I shall take a hat too. Part of travelling is the getting ready for it and that is even more exciting! My mom is still working so I can’t get her to go shopping with me just yet, but I will make sure I look cool too! Your friend Danny!


        1. Yes! 🙂 Then, he’s hoping that you’ll take him to England before he comes home! 🙂 He says he can travel light! He said he doesn’t mind riding along in a suitcase! 🙂


          1. He says as long as you take pictures of him, and send them to his mom. He’s quite a narcissist, you know!!! That’s what makes him such a charmer! 🙂


          2. Yay! His plane still hasn’t taken off. His at home pre-take off pictures bombed. So he was held over another two days for retakes. Whoever heard of a flight cancellation over retakes? hahaha 🙂


  2. Maybe Manny will get to see Paddington…… Or even Pooh. Now that would be something to blog about. “In which Pooh and Piglet meet Manny……….”


    1. Wouldn’t that be fun!!! I actually don’t have any idea what all Manny will get to do. He’ going to visit Ralph, and if you know Ralph, he’s a riot. Then he wi go with Ute. So they wi have fu control of his travels go a while. Should be a lot of fun!!!


    1. Maybe when he gets back, that would be great!!!! I’m thinking he could travel, and get pics, and we will all post stories. He will write home. I’m excited to see how this will go.


        1. 🙂 He just needs to get on the road. He was going to take off today, and I just got behind posting my blog. Yikes! I spend way too much time at this – sometimes! 🙂 🙂
