Jolly Jack Tar seeks new home

Ahoy everyone

Allow me to introduce myself I am ........?

Well I know I am a bear but unfortunately due to a bit of tumble on board ship I cannot remember my name. I'd rather not talk about it but what I would say is, it involved a rough sea crossing, losing my ID over board and one too many tots of rum.....the sun was over the yardarm I hasten to add.

My name is on the tip of my furry little tongue but alas it just won't come to me.

No worries though I am sure that the readers of this sterling blog can help me. The chaps here have allowed me to feature oost in a bid to achieve two goals.

1. To help me remember my name &

2. To find a lovely new home.

As you can tell from my rather smart uniform I was 2nd Officer on board the cruise liner 'Marches of Dime' and was only ever referred to on board as '2nd Officer' or 'oi you there'.

The Marches of Dime is a grand old ship and she has been my home for many a seafaring year.

I have been to places you can only dream about, had great firework parties and although not quite having a woman in every port, I certainly have had some fun (if you know what I mean - *wink wink* *nudge nudge*).

Tragically since my unfortunate 'accident', as well as losing my name, my sea legs have left me too and I am unable to sail the seven seas anymore (the Captain has got tired of having the poop deck swilled after each venture out of port). It is time, I am afraid, to hang up my hat and become a land lubber.

It is to this end that I need your help.

If you can guess my name and (if you don't think this is too forward of me) I will come and live with you.

I am a very clean able bodied bear (see how white my uniform is?), I always put the toilet seat down, I can cook, make great cocktails (learned this through my travels), I sing a mean sea shanty and I will keep you amused for hours with my yarn spinning of the high seas.

Hey, you could even send the tales I tell you to the 3 bears here and they can share them with all their readers.

Currently I am at barrack stanchioned in a hut dockside in Venezula with a gnarly old 'down in the jib' fisherman called Pedro but I will have to move in a few weeks (Pedro has some very strange bedroom habits indeed.....)

Busy Bear has offered to put me up in the short term... but to be honest, he really doesn't need any more long term house guests to stay.

The guys on ship have tried many names to try and jog my memory, some weren't that pleasant I can tell you...... so please have a go and splice the main brace... you can suggest as many times as you like .......

SnOwY eD:-
To help you I will post the suggested names by viewers here.....
Don't worry if you have not had time to think yet as plenty of time... what is the closing date for this .. you may well ask ??
Hows about 5th Novemeber .. next Wednesday :-) ***UPDATE: Deadline extended to Sunday NOVEMBER 9th***

It covers any event that you would like to share with us... it could be your anniversary if you adopt a toy from here, it could be the day two toys got it together or even when the owners got it together themselves....

Us bears on here want to make it special for you and celebrate those special times with you.
Just send us by email or post on this blog your special day and we will add it to the list. We will send you a bespoke 'Dear Teddy' badge to display on your blog and there maybe a special surprise too .... have a look at Octobear and you will see what we mean ......

Fame and fortune??...

Well it is confirmed ...SnOwY has hit the interweave. It must be the make over and the bottox that has done it for sure.............
Yesterday I got my first 'dip your toe in and see what response you get' email.... I think the 'cuddlers call it 'spam'.. to me spam is a meaty thing fried up with eggs.... however............

I must admit (secretly) to feeling a bit chuffed as my fellow bears on 'Dear Teddy' have not had such attention yet. I love to be first... first with top fashion, first with the top ladies lol...

From Mrs Naomi Solomon

No 358 Rue Des Martyrs Cocody Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire


I am the above named person from Kuwait. I am married to Mr Anthony Solomon who worked with Kuwait embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2004. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christian.

Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against.

When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $2. 5 Million (Two Million Five Hundred U.S. Dollars) in the bank here in Abidjan in suspense account. Presently, the fund is still with the bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that i have serious sickness which is cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness.

Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church or individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein.

I want a church that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavour that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I dont have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I dont want my husband efforts to be used by unbelievers. I dont want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way.

This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence i know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the Lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace.

I dont need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husband relatives is around me always I don't want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank here in Abidjan .

I want you and the church to always pray for me because the Lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth.

Please always be prayerful all through your life. Contact me on the above e-mail address for more information, any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another church or individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein.

Hoping to receive your reply.
Remain blessed in the Lord.

Yours in Christ,

Mrs naomi solomon.

Well what is a bear to do except reply as a bear would do?

hello hot chick

Thank you for your e mail. However, I am slightly taken a back at your unsolicited advances to me, you being a religious gal and all.

Why did you chose me to e mailed me?

I am a 40 odd year old teddy bear that lives in an imaginary world in hyperspace with 2 other bears.

I must conclude that your email is obviously a load of tosh because had you done your home work right you would have targetted someone more gullible than me?

Maybe however you are actually attracted to a 12 inch bear with no togger covered head to foot with bad acrylic hair (yes I know I am irresistible)......... if this does it for you as a real person then how weird are you really?.. and religion won't help you here I can tell you, no matter how many times you say 'hail Mary'

Don't bother replying if you don't want a cuddly caring old bear in your life,as I never wanted you to contact me in the first, second or.. millionth place!

If you wanted to really share your cash I am sure that you would not want to do that with a crazed stuffed toy who would spend it on wine, women (dolls) & song .. who would p*ss it up the wall had I not lost that appendage at birth

With kindest regards

SnOwY bEar

just send me all your money NOW or else.......

hey naomi is ignoring my e mails ... I can't think why?What did I say??
