a GrAnD dAy OuT..........

Christmas Day came and went with RP deciding he would rather stay in the Dolls House ... ooops sorry the American Embassy rather than face a huge fat guy wearing a red suit and a big bushy beard (he says it is a scary hidden memory he has had since his child hood (or that roughly translated seems to be the jist of it) .... this bear needs some therapy I can tell you)

My Kudler thought it was time to get some fresh air after being cooped up over Christmas with out more of a to do she loaded the car with dog and me .... oh and RP
Sue was so kind she let RP borrow her special hand knitted scarf because it is way colder here than in California .....(mmmm he looks quite good in pink must keep my eye on my pink satin shoes)

WOW it is great on the beach, it was so frosty that the sand still had a layer of frost over it, a bit cold around the trossachs though!!

Kudler took us to the top of a really high sandhill so we could enjoy the sunset over Formby Beach

My it was chilly around my ears but I just could not get my hood up but a really kind passer-by helped me ... arr that's better :-)
RP just didn't seem to be feeling the cold ...I soon found out why.
He was flushed with excitement the sunset had done something to his shyness.
(I figure it is a bit like werewolves with full moons)

Suddenly RP grabbed my hand and started running, it was all I could do to keep up. I could feel my stitches stretching .... and my feet stumbling in the sand ... and then he jumped.... .......

we flew through the air with the greatest of ease and landed (thump) on to the next sandhill in a great big heap .... my how we laughed

We then played hide from the Kudler

..... and we climbed trees as only bears can ... [good grief it must be 40 years since I last climbed a tree ... it's like riding a bike you never forget how]

we had a fabulous day out and I think we have finally 'bonded' me and RP ... group bear hug

(Ahem RP please move your hand from there ...........)

Daddy Papersurfer said...

That's brought a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye ..... mainly because of the positions of the flags in one photo.

I suspect that RP might be coming out of his shell a bit too much ...... before you know it, he'll have Snowy coming out of her shell-suit ..... you have been warned ......

SnOwY bEaR said...

Drowsey Monkey said...

I want to know more about the handsome passer-byer. ???

Well, that looks like a fun day, but the flying thru the air!?

Other than that - I'm seriously concerned for all the humans in this story LOL

SnOwY bEaR said...

DM the handsome passer by had his wife with him ..

the flying thru the air was fabulous I lost all control so glad I had a safe pair of pants

don't worry no humans were hurt in the making of this post .. however, some where out of puff trying to keep up with our jolly japes ... those sandhills are a killer to run up and down ;-)

Daddy Papersurfer said...

Those bears are soooooooo gay ...... I've had my suspicions for some time ........

70steen said...

do you think them gay?? no ! it is a bear thing all bears together

John C said...

Which is gayer?

A bear puppet getting close to another one, or the guy with his fist up the bear's arse?

Grumpy Ted said...

I've had a Christmas Tree up my botty ...... I didn't feel that gay about the situation I must say *grumph*

SnOwY bEaR said...

ahem .. you boyz .. really !! tsk ;-)

[maybe.. just maybe you are trying to tell us something??]
