Officially given up on Bilbert

It's ironic this post follows my previous one of Bilbert resurfacing! When I received the email from Bilbert's host saying he had arrived safely I was so excited and couldn't wait to spread the news.  Especially since I had been so worried he was lost.  So now since that email, I have written to his host a few times to see how he is doing and hoping to get some pictures but for 2 months and some now I have received no pictures, no response to my emails...basically nothing.  So I was just wondering if I should give up.  After my first mistake I have made a point to write to all hosts in advance to see if they had time to host him before I sent them over and its usually been fine.  I'm really pissed off as you can imagine.  I had so much hope initially that we would all have fun with this idea.  The last couple of hosts before this one were nice enough to have him but didn't send me any picures so we can't all share in the fun :(.  Why would anyone agree to host him if they have no intention of sticking with the rules of sharing pics...thats the fun part of it all grrr...and its not asking for much!!  For a minute I was even worried something had happened to his current host, but she continues to list stuff on her etsy I know someone sees my messages there anyway..

So this is just a note (clearly a vent as well) to let all you Bilbert followers know that perhaps this is it for our wonderful Bilbert adventures and to thank all his previous hosts for doing such a WONDERFUL job of hosting him!!  If any previous hosts that haven't sent any pictures still want to share them, we would love to see them.  For his current host, if you ever feel like giving back Bilbert or sharing pictures and sending him on...I will be very appreciative!!   


  1. Oh gosh, I'm so sorry to hear that Bilbert has been Shanghaied, or maybe that's toynapped. Poor little guy is probably frightened out of his furry little skin.

    I really have no idea why some people can't be depended upon, maybe something happened to Bilbert and they just haven't been able to face up to it and tell you the truth?
    Anyway it was a marvelous idea and Bilbert did see a number of wonderful places and met some truly lovely people.
    My sincere condolences over your loss and to the loss of all of those who were enjoying the exciting travels of plushy little Bilbert. :(

  2. Thanks for your condolences! I also thought that maybe something happened to him and asked in one of my emails if she can at least tell me if something happened so at least I can know. I guess she is just determined not to respond. It's so hard to do anything fun with inconsiderate people like her. Oh well, we had fun while it lasted thanks to some awesome hosts!
