The Bump........................"There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, 'Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!' (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge."..................
All rabbits need a pocket watch for it is rude to be late for tea, which inevitable..... too many distractions......a daisy......a primrose.......something new..... forever running late for one reason or another but they are reliable and always turn up.
Our bump also lost his pocket watch............... I sent captain rupert to find the white rabbit.........
to see if he could help.............. he did eventually after an extra large helping of carrot cake.
They found the pocket watch among the daffodils.......... the loud ticking gave the game away........but it had lost its minute hand.
A clock mender was what was needed thought the mad hatter......The doormouse yawned and sleepily said he knew a good one....... Off Captain Rupert went with a leap and a bounce and a stop here and there to nibble all the yummy spring flowers......... The clock mender bent down and looked carefully and said I'm sorry I will have to order a new hand. I don't have any in stock which would suite such a fine pocket watch. Please come back next week..........
and captain rupert did and the watch had a shiny new minute hand..........

The 1st of April the bump arrived 19 days late (because he lost his pocket watch) weighing almost 10 lbs.
