Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

"Are you ready to open Christmas gifts, Miss Feathers?" asked Uncle Tibbs.

"We can't open the presents until Ajdin is here," she said. "By the way, where is he?"

"I doooooon't knoooowwww," said Ooogie.


"Look, this oddly-shaped present is moving!"

I jumped out!

Holiday prep

"Hey! We have work to do!" I called out to my friends.


"Uncle Tibbs, you can set up the Christmas tree! Miss Feathers, you can help Parker with the decorations! Ooogie, you can open the Christmas cards we received!"

"And what will you do?" they asked.

"I will supervise!" I said.

"Great job! It looks great!"

Thanks for all the holiday cards everyone! We received cards from Little Fox, Jerry & Ben, Fritzel, Beanie, and Droopy!

Stuffie Tour: ???

Hey everyone, today I am going to blog about --

Huh? My mom says that I just got a package.

Let's see who it's from.

It's addressed to STUFFIE TOURS.

I wonder if this is a new Stuffie Tourist. Perhaps I should put on my tour guide uniform. I'll be right back!

Okay, I'm back!

I can hear something moving inside...

Let's open the box!

This part is so exciting, isn't it?

It is...

ERNEST SHACKLETON BEAVER, intrepid explorer!

Like a true adventurer, Ernest has signed up for our MYSTERY TOUR!

Our tour is soooo mysterious... even I don't know where we are going! You'll just have to wait and find out...

Phew, I had to get outside for some fresh air! Things have been so tense lately. I guess that's politics for ya! Let's liven things up a bit, huh?


"Parker, what have you got there? Some mail?"

Yes, it's a London postcard from Sandy after his Stuffie Tours gig as a tour guide. It's a really great postcard, with a nice photo collage on it. Thanks Sandy! You did a great job as tour guide. I'm sure Little Fox had a terrific time.


"A package?"

"Who is it from?"

That's Jerry and Ben's signature drawing on the back!

Oooh... ahhh...

They sent me a bunch of fun stuff from their Halloween Costume Contest. There's a certificate, some stickers, a bear pin, some bear stationery, leaf coasters, candy, and teddy bear mints!

What a fun haul! Thanks Jerry and Ben for the package! Receiving fun mail is the perfect way to cheer up your day!

Election Results

So it's been almost a week since the election. Some of you might be wondering why I haven't given my concession speech yet. Well, the reason is because I believe that every vote counts. And the last time I checked, the votes are still being counted!

Let's check in with our election official, Ooogie.

"Twoooo miiillllioooon, threeeee huuundreeed fooorty seeveeeeen thouuusaaaand, niiinne huundreeed fiffffty oooone...."

"Hey Ooogie! How's it going?"

"Hiiii Ajjddiiiin."

"Do you need any help counting the ballots?" I asked. I picked up a ballot.

"Nooooo.... youuu'reee noooot alllooowedd to tooouucccch theeeem.... thaaaat's eleeeectiion taaampeeerringgg..."

"Oh whoops!" I said.

"Ooohhh nooooo," said Ooogie. "I looooost cooount."


"I haaaave toooo staaaartt ovvvver...."


"Onnnnneeeee.... twwwoooooooo.... threeeeee..."

Well, at this rate, it looks like it will take about 4 years to count all the votes! In the meantime, I'm going to have a snack!

Hey everyone, I'm standing here in line to vote - this is a big election! Did you vote yet?

Remember to vote for me for President and my dog Parker for Vice President! And it looks like Ooogie is working the polls to make sure there is no funny business with voter fraud.

"Ooogie, is there a machine to count the ballots?" I asked.

"Nooooooo," he replied. "I'mmmmm gooooinggg toooo couuunnnnt theeeeem mannuuuallllyyy."


Hmm, this could take a while! I'm going to relax and have a snack while I wait for the results...

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! My costume this year is A NERD. Thanks to Jerry & Ben for hosting the annual Halloween costume contest!

Let's take a closer look at my costume. First, I have glasses held together with duct tape. You can never go wrong with duct tape. I also have yellow bee suspenders to hold my pants up. Yes, I am actually wearing pants! Then, I have a backpack and also a stack of computer programming books.

I also received this neat handmade Halloween card from Droopy.

Thanks Droopy!

I got mail from Droopy last week - it's a postcard of the Red Mill! Thanks Droopy.

Political analysis

Hello everyone, Parker and I are here at the Stuffie Presidential Campaign Headquarters. We are going to check in with our campaign team and talk to some of our trusted political advisors.

"Ajdin, a recent poll says that you will gain 4% more votes if you wear pants!" said Miss Feathers.

"But I really hate pants," I protested.

"4% means a lot in those crucial swing states," she said.

"Well, I suppose I could wear them for a while," I replied.

"Ajjjjjdiiiin... a neeeew pooooll sayyyys vooooteeeers waaant tooo seeee youuuu beeee mooore enviiiiirooonmeeentaallllyy friiiendlyyy."

"I think I'm already quite environmentally friendly. What else could I do?" I asked.

"Youuuu caaaan giiiive uuuup youuuuur caaaar," said Ooogie, as he drove my beloved roadster away.

"Noooooo..." I could only watch as it rolled out of sight.

I sat down and let out a sigh.

"Parker, this is not what I thought running for President would be like. First, I have to wear pants, then my car is gone. What's next?"


"I know! I'll have a jar of honey to cheer myself up," I said.

"Hey Ajdin," said Uncle Tibbs. "New polling suggests that 5% of voters will respond more positively to your campaign if you switch to honey alternatives, like stevia or agave nectar.


"So I'll just go ahead and take those away," said Uncle Tibbs.

"Hey, now wait just a minute..."

Pants? My car? And now honey?


"Everyone stop! This is madness!" I shouted.

"But Ajdin, don't you want to get more votes?"

"Dooon't youuuuu waaaaant tooooo wiiiiin?"

I paused.

"I just want... to be myself," I said, finally.

"Have we forgotten why we created this movement in the first place? We are stuffies, and stuffies are true to their word. We will never lie or cater to special interests groups. We stand for honesty, courage, and kindness."


"My name is Ajdin Adilovic...

"... I do not like to wear pants..."

"... I love my car ..."

"... and I love honey!"

My campaign team cheered.

"I will never change and I am proud of being me! I hope I will earn your vote in November!"
