The Time Has Come, Part 2 (by the Bubbers King)

Hello, Snuggles. Thank you for meeting me tonight.

The time has now come for you to learn about him.

It all started when Mommy read me this book. At first, I thought it was about an elephant named Dumbo with unusually large auricles. But I soon came to realize it was about so much more…..

….. When Mommy decided to listen to this one morning while she was getting ready for the day. We made it to the end of side 1, and do you know what I heard at the beginning of the last song???


Then all of a sudden, Mommy turned to me with a huge smile and cried out, “Bubbers!! This song is about Casey Junior! The train from your Dumbo book!”

I looked at her with wide, disbelieving eyes as I listened with rapt attention.

When the song ended, I smiled slowly and said, “Again!”

And since that moment in time, a day has not gone by that I have not talked about him.

Casey Junior.

He has an engine and lots of train cars filled with circus animals!

And it wasn’t long afterward that Mommy looked up the words to the song so she could teach them to me.

And then one day (you won’t believe it!), Mommy asked me if I wanted to see the real Casey Junior on the computer!!!

Oh boy, did I ever!!!

It was love at first watch and before long, I memorized the entire clip–sound effects and all–and will enthusiastically perform them for anyone who asks!

(It’s true! Just ask my Nursery Leaders at church! At first, they asked Mommy, “Who on earth is Casey Junior?!?” But now they ask me to sing the song all the time!)

Would you like me to sing it for you, Snuggles??

  1. This totally made me smile. I love how he plays “with” Snuggles. And you can just tell that Snuggles is thrilled by the attention!

  2. Wow, that’s quite a story Bubbers is sharing. The visual of the train going right to Snuggles head was an eye opener too!
