Grumpy and little Ted have been so bored waiting for stories to come in about the exploits of other toys they’ve started playing hide and seek.

I know …… they’re rubbish but I’m playing along to keep them happy.

“ …… nine hundred and ninety eight ………. nine hundred and ninety nine ….. ONE THOUSAND ……. coming ready or not!!!!”

[Those lovely people at Fuelmyblog arranged with Wholebake to send some snacky thingies to Grumpy – he’s been having a bit of trouble opening the parcel with his paws so his incisive and cogent criticisms and assessment won’t be published for a few days – damn, I’ve got crumbs on the keyboard now …. Whoops]

Jolly Jack Tar.... and the winner is???

Ahoy there me hearties!

Remember me?

Yes it is I the bear who couldn't remember his name.

The dear bears on Dear Teddy ran a competition to see if any of you lovely people out there recognised me.

I have been on tenterhooks for days now as the bears extended the closing date due to Busy Bear being well... very busy smooshing with his friends, Grumpy Ted was partying as it was his birthday and Snowy Bear has had some more cosmetic enhancements (not sure what he has had done this time though but I am sure he will tell you all in due course..).

Anyway this morning I received an envelope delivered by carrier pigeon all the way from The United Kindgom.... how exciting

When I opened it there was a short note from SNoWy which read

'Hey dude here are the names that we have collected these past few weeks. I have put each name on separate pieces of paper, folded up just to make it a bit more exciting for you... good luck....

SnOwY (& BB and GT)'

A 'first rate' idea but why he didn't just e mail me is anyones guess?... I maybe living in a hut with a very strange fisherman but we do have WiFi.. tsk. Oh well anything for a bit of drama hey SnOwy?

So I sat in the sunshine on the dockside all 'bouyed up' and opened each one up in turn.

The first one I opened was 'Sheets O'Brien'. My that made me laugh.
Gosh 'olds Sheets' or '3 Sheets' we used to call him ... mad as a hatter with a gastric problem, if you get my drift. No that ain't me!

Horatio Hetherington-Snogworthy? Nice name, very grand but alas not me (mmm? but it may be useful to adopt when chatting up the ladies, that'll impress them?)
Captain Theodore Stubig? Wasn't he a famous guy off TV? or was that Stubing?
A handsome chap just like me if I may say so..... but again not me.

And so I continued until there was only one piece of paper left in the envelope... I took a swig of 'Dutch courage' from my hip flask. I did feel by now I was 'flogging a dead horse', and 'in the doldrums' as to what was 'in the offing'!

I didn't want to 'make heavy weather' of it so I closed my eyes and unravelled the last scrap of paper...........

Well 'shiver me timbers' this last one sure 'passed with flying colours', the 'son of a gun' recognised me ...........

My name................... my name is .................Ten Cent Tipsy (or 10c for short, pronounced 'tensee').

I immediately e mailed the bears to find out who it was that guessed my name.... I got the reply back just a moment ago (darned time zones there is always someone sleeping when you need them!)

I can hardly contain myself...... I have got a new home with
Hungry Mother.

Hi babe I am on my way.
Whatta ya mean
Hungry Mother is a man??

He has a motor home and he travels around a lot?
Fantastic! ooo I do like the 'cut of his jib'.
Can I sit on your dashboard HM and come on adventures with you..... please?
Oh I am going to love this being a 'landlubber'.

What adventures we will have together and I can tell you yarns of my life at sea you will not believe.

I have packed my bag and I am now off to Busy Bears place until
Hungry Mother emails him to see where to send me next...... please e mail Busy Bear soon I am so excited, riding on the top of a big wave just now.

A BIG Thank you to everyone who took the time to post suggested names on Dear Teddy, you are all so very kind. I will be sure to tell any other 'lost' bears I come across on my travels to pop in here to find a good home. Oh and thank you Pedro for putting me up..... USA here I come.......

I thought I'd had a rough and tough life but Teddy Banstead takes the biscuit [or waffle]. For those who are feeling very brave read about him here.

His terrible story was sent to me by a friend of Daddy Papersurfer's. He is a non-blogger [shame on you sir] called Pettulant.
