    I usually read your posts out loud to my teenagers because we all love Bed Troll.
    This time?
    Daughter: “Mom, can you just skip to Elvis?”
    Your cat is loved.

    So happy about Elvis and now I’m going to keep an eye out for a campaign bed ;D

    Elvis will know when you’re ready. I’m sure she is doing this for you. Great job on the bed purchase :-)!

    WOW! I NEVER find stuff like that. I could go around this whole big state and not find stuff like that. You truly are the queen of craigslist. So jealous! Those are gorgeous pieces! WOW and what amazing prices. Congrats!

    Elvis is clearly a woman of her own mind! And I support the idea of keeping the in-home vet as a life consultant. My sense of the world is that persons who really “get” our animals are indeed sages among us.

    Continued good thoughts and prayers coming your way! I always look forward to reading about the NEXT great adventure! Hugs to you!

    As a person who daily performs the calculus of coveting (if I save us 50 euros on boring stuff I can blow 75 euros on bullion trim) I am super impressed by your bed troll. It clearly operates as a psychic advance scout, and was alerted to the proximity of bed score. What an incredible thing to find, and I am so glad you get/have to own it! Thanks for sharing it and lots of love to Elvis.

    Hooray for Elvis and what a score on the bed! I did that with an Elliot (did not know what it was at the time) gorgeous cream wrought iron bed for $175. Sold it for $300-400 when we were talking about downsizing. Not something I would do again, loved it. But, life moves on and we only have a 2 bedroom condo now with a huge built in Murphy bed in the guest room, so no could use!!! Love you and your site.

    Craigslist should give you a kick-back. I never fail to be inspired to open it up and start hunting stuff after reading a new post!

    Oh my! I loved this post”I love all of them” but this one! Wow! I must admit to a wee bout of jealously. A stunning bed! There is a great book called ” British campaign furniture” that covers campaign beds and other wonderful things we need! Cheers!

    I looked at this campaign bed last week on ebay and lusted after it. The price was out of my range. I want this for my screened in porch to have a place to nap. I was a cat in a previous life. This would have been a perfect addition to my Victorian home. I am bereft but happy that you found one SO CHEAP and we always want our friends to be hapoy and score big!

    You’re slacking VEB, and that’s saying something – just when I thought I could not adore you more, relate to you more – you go lazy on us and I find you even more relatable, and thus adorable. <3

    Love the campaign bed – what a find! It was obviously meant to be yours. And SO SO SO glad to hear Elvis is still here. Very good news all around!

    Love your post! We have an 18 yr young kitty in his 9th+ life too. His name is Bones. Seems like he is also on his own schedule like Elvis… Big purrs to the 3 of you!

      I have a beautiful 20-YO kitty girl, Blossom, who just went on a road trip with me, a friend and 3 of my dogs. I’m sure it wasn’t on HER bucket list, but the trip was necessary and at her age (even though she seems to be enjoying wonderful good health) I wasn’t about to leave her ANYWHERE! If I could take her with me to the grocery store, I would. Amazingly, she complained the first five minutes, then snuggled down and went to sleep. Critters are amazing. Hang in there, Elvis. Maybe you’ll get a trip to the beach!

    I had to look up campaign bed, because I’d never even heard of it. Thanks for enlightening me!
    Sweet pets to Elvis and hugs to you and the man.

    I did not know that campaign furniture was a thing until a few minutes ago (How? No clue.) but now I MUST HAVE HEAVY FANCY FOLDING THINGS.

    I have reasons.

    I have plans.

    What I don’t have is people in the area selling things without bothering to find out what they are. This is a borderline tragedy.
