Home Depot… It’s Pickup Day!

“I’m all ready to go mommy!”

I got super excited about the bathroom project.

The dufferfabearlosoest part?

……Going to Home Depot !

Whoooo Hooooo! We’re going to the Home Depot!

Mommy wasn’t all that happy about it all. She liked the shower and tub the way it was already. Only we had to change it because we got a big water leak behind the wall.

I got really super scared about the water leak. I thought that me and Little Joe were at fault for making the water leak out of the walls and messing up the floor.

Me and Little Joe had a yearning to go sailing around the world with Mickey Mouse. So we tried to build a practice ship in the bathtub. We spilt lots and lots of water when we pretended that there was a big storm at sea.


Today…… today we’re going to Home Depot!

Mommy and I already shopped at the Home Depot store to pick out the tiles and other supplies to fix the bathroom.

Today we were going back to pick everything up so that I can start the tile work and set the new bathtub. Well… at least so I can help with all the tile work and setting in the new bathtub…. 🙂

I was pretty anxious to get started. I ran out to the car and slipped myself into the human restraining device (a.k.a. seatbelt) before mommy was even ready to leave the house.

Mommy just couldn’t drive fast enough for me today. We got stuck at every red light on the way too! Humph!

Finally… we got to Home Depot. I slipped out of the car seat’s human restraining device and jumped up to get a better look out the window.

“I see it! I see it!”

Look! Were almost there!

It’s the Contractor’s Pick-Up spot at Home Depot!

This is a very special day for me! I’ve been dreaming about going to Home Depot’s Contractor Pick-Up for a super long time!

Nopers,…… me and mommy aren’t contractors. Yet, that’s where I wanted to pick up our supplies. It’s also shady. Anywhere you can get shade is Florida is a GOOD THING!

Next…… Me and mommy had to stop by the Home Depot’s Customer Service spot.

“More saving. More doing.” And I like’s saving and doing!

I showed the Customer Service Home Depot Associate our shopping receipt. I told her that we were here to pick up our stuff so I could start tiling my bathroom.

She was really super duper impressed that a little bear like myself was going to do a home fixer upper pawject!

“Hello Home Depot Customer Service Associate! My name is Duffy Bear and I’m here to pick up all my cool stuff to fix the bathroom!”

She told me to wait right there….


Fur what I thought….


I need to get a moving and a grooving and pick up our stuff.

It was feeling like furever and furever and furever and furever and furever and furever and furever to pick up all the cool stuff!

More waiting…. How do grown ups do it? …

…..All the waiting that is…

I just kept thinking to myself … ‘wait right here for what? I’m here to get my supplies for my project…’

Whoa……. My eyes got super wide!


“OMB!”, I said. “This is Super Duffertastic!”

I’m super glad I waited! She came back with the bestest super special fabearlous present for me….

…..An awesome pawesome honest to real life official Home Depot Sales Associate Apron!

I’m gonna be one of the team too!

How did I get so lucky?!!!

I’m official!

I was duffafunnertastically energized!

I jumped off the counter and raced to get a big orange cart for our supplies.

I started pushing the big orange cart, but… well… it wasn’t too heavy or nothing… but it was too tall for me to see over.

There were lots and lots customers in the store. Mommy said that they might not see me and get spooked if they thought the cart was moving all by itself.

That might not be good for the Home Depot if customers thought that a ghost or something was moving the cart. They might think that the Home Depot was haunted. Some of them might run out screaming or something! That probably wouldn’t be too good for business…..

But then something even better happened….

— Poof !!!


Like magic, Home Depot Sales Associate Mr. Ken appeared! He helped me get all my supplies and push the cart out to our car.

“I still wanna help push the big orange cart Mr. Ken.”

I still wanted to help. After all, pushing the big orange cart is fun and I was wearing an Official Home Depot Associates Apron!

“Why are we stopping?”

Me and Mr. Ken pushed the bit orange cart outside while mommy moved the car underneath the Contractor’s pick up cover. (A.K.A. ‘the awning’) I prefer to say ‘pick up cover’ the because ever time I say awing, it makes me think like I’m yawning and then I seem to get sleepy… go figure…


I opened up the trunk and Mr. Ken started packing everything up into it.

I turned around and Mr. Ken was already packing the trunk!

Before I could jump back down to the big orange cart, Mr. Ken started packing up the trunk.

I hustled myself back down to the big orange cart and started lifting the supplies to hand them off to Mr. Ken to help him out.

Did I mention that my favorite color is orange? That why I like to keep saying ‘big orange cart’ over and over and over and over again… and again and again and again.

I went right for the super large round bucket with the ’tile sticking to the wall’ goop inside.

“How’s about this one next Mr. Ken?”

Mr. Ken was super fast!

I didn’t want to miss any of the lifting and packing fun so I jumped back into the trunk and let Mr. Ken pass the boxes to me.

Just pass the tiles to me Mr. Ken.”

Besides when I saw Mr. Ken reaching way back into the trunk of the car to fit all the supplies, I figured I would be a bigger help if I got into the trunk. I’m just the right size to move everything around real good and get it all to fits just right!

Me and Mr. Ken made a great team! We got the car packed up dufferteeSplits!

I thanked Mr. Ken for helping us and then told mommy to step on the pedal and get it down to the medal ’cause this little bear was ready to get his paws dirty!

    • Duffy Bear says:

      Aweeee! I super wanna see the ninja turtles. We haven’t been able to go anywhere because of all the construction on the roof and in the house. I need to see Guardian of the Galaxies too!

      You’re very beary sharp! I’ll be sneaking in lots of posts with past dates. I started lots and lots of them, but never finished ’em all up.

      It’s officially called a ‘sticky post’ because it’s stuck to the top of the home page! I think that’s neats!

      Tell me all about the Ninjas when you gets home!

  2. Shellie May says:

    Hey I just got a chance to comment we were eating yummy pankakies !


    Ninja turtles was great I think we might see it again *yay* after the movie we ate pizza because all the pizza in the movie made us hungry! We had all our ninja turtle clothes on. Mommy wore her shirt and socks I wore my t-shirt and slippers!

    • Duffy Bear says:

      Pancakes! Mmmmmmmm……..! Did you make them?

      Yeah for the Ninjas! and an even bigger Yeah for Pizza!

      We’ve been so busy at the house we haven’t even seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet! I’m helping mommy with chores right now so maybe we’ll have time this week.

  3. Shellie May says:

  7. Opti Freel says:

  8. Dufferdude says:

    You got an apron? I wish we were brothers or something. Then I would’ve probably gotten one too.

    You saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?! Now I really wish we were brothers. I wnted (wanted, sorry bout the typo. Oops, another typo…) to see that movie really bad. At least I went on Fandango to look at some clips they had of the movie. I like the scene when they’re all in the elevator and Michelangelo just starts up a bundle of music.

    • Duffy Bear says:

      That would be cool to be brothers! I gots lots and lots of brothers here and there is always room for another!

      At least we are cousins!

      I didn’t get to see Ninja Turtles or even the Avengers! My grandaddy fell and we’ve been spending lots of time with him at the hospital and at rehab. I finally got to see Iron Man 3! It was on the tv at the hospital when my Auntie Maria got sick. She got sick at Disney. We were at Celebration Hospital. We watched FROZEN and BRAVE too!

      I love moobies! Mommy told me to look for Ninja Turtles when it comes out on Redbox or something. But I always for get to check.

  9. Hi Duffy! Great Job helping out! 😀
    (changed my name, it used to be DisneyDuffyFan)
    I’m new here.
    I love all your blogs. And i can’t wait to see when Shellie May updates the Fashion Blog.
    You looks sooo cute in that apron, i wonder if they sell it in the stores?
    Or is it saved up in the storage room for special occasion?

    We had to cancel our trip to Disney last second because of some personal Stuff(ing).
    Hopefully around spring i can visit Big Duffy and get my own Duffy Bear.

    Also, tell your Mommy she does an EXCELLENT JOB on her handmade outfits. Hopefully she can tell us how to make some for out duffys.

    Well, Have A Nice Dufferific Day,

    • Duffy Bear says:

      You’re duffermost beary welcome! I thinks everybear needs to adopts a Duffy!

      Thanks for likings my blogs. I tries to blog as often as I can. ShellieMay has been busy with preparing for the holidays. She likes doing all the cooking and decorating – you know all the mommy stuff. She said she promises to work more on her fashions soon.

      My Home Depot apron? I’m not sure if they sell them there at the store. I was super lucky! But you can asks! I think it’s a magical apron. When I wear it – I’m a good fixer upper!

      BuMMeRs!!! I understands that personal stuff. We have lots of that going on too.

      I’m finally gonna gets to go back to Disney this Saturday. It’s been weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks. I gets a wee bits on the cranky side when I don’t goes for a long time.

      At least your family is stills gonna gets to go!

      I’ll tell mommy ‘Thanks’! Mommy gets a wee bit cranky when she doesn’t gets to sew! And because of lots and lots of stuff, she hasn’t been able to sew in way too long!

      Mommy taught me how to sew before ShellieMay was adopted. Then when ShellieMay was adopted, I helped mommy make her a few things, I gots all twisted up in the ribbons! ShellieMay and mommy sew together now. I think that’s dufferbetters.

      ShellieMay made a ‘now-stitched’ skirt. She’s been anxious to put that blog post up too! We have so much to post about,

      Huggies to you and your family!

    Huggies & Kisses,


    • Duffy Bear says:

      That’s very beary true. I hope I can get mommy to take me one more time this year to see the story tellers in EPCOT. Otherwise I gotta start planning our next visit in January.

      Granddaddy said he might go to Disney when he gets better!!! Yeah!!! I hope so. I want hi to meet Big Duffy too!

      Big Huggies!
      Duffy Bear

      • DuffyStitchedLove says:

        Well I hope your grandaddy can have a wonderful time with you at Disney! My grandma lives far far away, but she said she might visit next year. So we are planning to take to Disney because “It’s A Small World” is her most duffers favorite ride. 🙂

        Huggies :D,

        • Duffy Bear says:

          OMB! OMB! OMB! “It’s A Small World” was my grandmommy’s super most favorite ride too!

          Once, we rode 3 times without getting off! (That’s because my grandmommy was in her wheel chair & sometimes the cast members would let you go again when no one else was waiting.)

          (((((( Huggies!!! ))))))
          Duffy Bear

          • WOW Really?

            That’s so cool. I bet you got the song stuck in your head for awhile. Lol.

            Have you ever ridden on Space Mountain?

            The first time i rode it i was crying at the end because to me it was pretty scary, dark, and has a lot of narrow turns. And plus i really had to use the restrooms while i was in an hour long wait to get on the ride.

            But one of my favorite ride (other than its a small world) is Splash mountain, I love getting wet on the waterfall.

            Disney should make a ride about Duffy. Don’t you think? I wonder how the ride would be like? slow? fast? scary? calm?

            Well i hope everything goes well so i can go again.

            Huggies :D,

          • Duffy Bear says:

            Totally stuck in our heads! We even sang our own words all day long on the 50th Anniversary of “It’s a Small World” https://myduffybear.com/disneys-small-world-50th-celebration/

            I only got to ride Space Mountain once. It was super dufferduper awesome pawesome! I had to ride with my Uncle Gustavo. My mommy is a super chicken. She said she rode Space Mountain once in Disneyland – and well…. probably never again!

            Splash Mountain is really great too! Only mommy makes me ride in a waterproof bag. She said she got really really wet once. I guess it’s ok. We don’t bring the blowdryer with us to WDW.

            You bearcha! I think it should be their very beary next project! Duffyland! We need our own land! Then we can have all kinds of fluffy duffy rides! We need rides for the Duffy & ShellieMay bears that like wild and crazy coasters & for the ones that likes the slow ones and shows & all kinds of entertainment! I think we need some flying Duffy Bears too? Like Dumbo? or something….. Oh yea! Like when we wear our Super Flying Ace costume! I know it would work! And lots and lots of pizza and popcorn and pretzels and chocolatle and all kinds of cupcakes! I’m so excited!!!

            Yeah I hopes everything goes well for you too. We need our Disney Days!

            Huggies to U!
