When we arrived, everybody admired her new mode of transportation. My friend Ginnie peeked in through the window and Tessie immediately demanded that I put in privacy curtains before her next trip. How rude was that?!
Our hostess Sue, said that Tessie was free to wander around and look into the mini houses and room boxes. She kept looking and then running back to tell what she had seen.
After one trip, she told me that I wasn't the only one with unfinished houses in my collection. She found one that Sue brought back from England years ago. It is still unfurnished and no roof to boot. I had to laugh. Aren't we all guilty of that particular flaw? I don't know anybody that has every house in their collection finished.
Anyway, this is what got me into trouble. This one is finished.....
It's smaller than the kit that Kathi sent me, but it is finished....Yes. A travel trailer. Here we go again!
She ranted all the way home about how other people have finished trailers..."Why don't I have a finished travel trailer? Hey! I could be living in that while you finish the townhouse."
I knew that I should have called ahead and asked Sue to cover the trailer. Now I am going to have to listen to Tessie complain for the next week and a half.
I will not work on the trailer. I will not work on the trailer. I will not work on the trailer.....
I will hide the Magic Box. I will hide the Magic Box. Or maybe I will lock Tessie in the magic box and throw away the key.
That's the last traveling that Tessie is going to be doing for a while. It doesn't take much to teach me a lesson. Tomorrow I am going to go back to work on the Russian Cottage.
See you then.
