Solbit, first iguanodon to taste jelly

Dear Nicalai,

Nona and Papa have a biological clock ticking. Oh, not to have kids. They already did that. Three times! No, I mean they’re getting closer to their “expiration dates,” if you know what I mean. So, for them, running around the world and seeing interesting sights is probably a now-or-never kind of thing.  They just don’t stop traveling.

We just came back from seeing jelly at a garden! I thought you went to gardens to see plants.  I bet you have never been to Milner Gardens in Qualicum Beach on the east coast of Vancouver Island.

Don't feel bad though, because you are young. You still have time to get up here.

They took me along, and I enjoyed going with them to see yet another garden.

We didn't see just plants, bushes and trees. We saw jellies too!

We iguanodons never thought to make jelly. My ancestors just chewed away on plants. They had no time for making jelly. Also, I’m pretty sure they didn’t have stoves to cook on way back then. What good would a stove have been without gas or electricity, right?  Hey, I may have just set a world record: first iguanodon ever to taste jelly!  My conclusion: I like jelly.

They serve the jelly on scones and serve tea in fancy cups like this.

Maybe you can answer my question: why are these cups called China cups? They look like tea cups to me. Nobody I know drinks China. I don’t even know what that is. Do you?

Of course, Milner Garden does have growing things such as plants, bushes, and trees.

Hey, you know what evidence is don't you?  We we also saw evidence of plants at this garden: leaves.

Speaking of leaves, I regret to say that I have to leave you now. Nona and Papa want to go watch the river otters rolling in dirt down at the inner harbor. They put on quite a show. I guess Nona & Papa will keep running off to see interesting sights until their expiration dates come up. Odd, though, they seem not to know when that is. If I had an expiration date on me, I’d want to know when it was, or maybe it’s better not to know. I wonder about that. Gotta go. We’re off to the inner harbor! Bye.

I’m your friend.

Love,

Solbit

*New reader? Get oriented below.

  • You may be asking yourself, “Who is Solbit?” Solbit is a fictional character, but she is a real plastic dinosaur, sent to us unsolicited in a package we ordered from Photojojo. So, she’s a plastic jurassic. Solbit is short for the four names given her by our grandchildren: Sparkle, Orangie, Lulu, Breakit. We tend to use her given names for when she’s been naughty. Thank you for visiting Tales of a Plastic Jurassic. Solbit likes company and hopes you’ll come back.
  • You can learn more about Solbit at her About page and in the earlier posts, “Solbit: How I Got My Name” and “Solbit: How I Got to Travel.”
