At his current rate of speed? About 4-5 years...


Yeah, I sent him on to the next person on about May 1 or so. In the intervening five months he's only made it to four people. If we assume 10 people per year, that means 5 more years until we reach the end of the current list. :(

Like I said just a minute ago... get on with it when you get him. Take you pictures show him the sights, and ship him off.

Couldn´t we create a rule that you can only keep him one week or something?

Two weeks is recommended. And that's really quite reasonable. And even factoring in as much as week between visits for travel, Henry ought to be travelling a lot faster than he is.

But Real Life intervenes, and a lot of people have to put Henry at the bottom of their To-Do list...

With the kind of track record we've had so far, I consider myself at having gotten Henry back on the road at just under three weeks.

That sounds quite reasonable, it´d be fun if he actually moved on so I just have to wait a few years... :wink:

I agree with Formendacil, people (like me) have every day lives that tax them into putting Henry at the bottom of their to-do list. So... whenever you get it, take your time, but please be polite and send it soon.

Thanks.

P.S. I'm now a laborer! Wahoo!

I'm very sorry, I contacted Jedipawn a week ago with no replie (next person on the list please PM me.)

But I was only planning on keeping Henry for a week, but my Dad has resently gone to the hospital on short notice for something life threatening, he is out now and doing well.

I was not planning on holding Henry this long...

It's your job to PM the next person. Looking at the list, that would be James Brink.

Based on my own earlier search for someone to send to, James Brink goes by the C-C name: jb

So send your PM to jb and see what happens.

Here's a vignette of Henry while at my house, after I discovered some people had taken somethings from Henrys stash of gifts. I was inspired to make this small Vignette, it's nothing special...

Enjoy.
