set another place for dinner dear......

I managed to finally persuade my kudler to go to the post office and see what the parcel was that was waiting for her. We had recieved the notification a few days before but as the opening hours for collection are 06.30 - 12.00 hours a day had to be chosen were kudler had time to queue up before work.

yoh the parcel is from California.... it must be Replacement Bear!!!!!

Kudler carefully removed the sellotape and opened the box.

We both stood there in silence (I am glad Sue wasn't there at the time ... she has a god awful scream)...

RP didn't appear to be breathing ... there was no movement ... I whispered to kudler

'he obviously only had enough air and food to last him the journey .. it was those 3 days lying in the Post Office that has done it!!'

I reached into the box to stroke poor RPs head and..........
He shot bolt upright, waving a flag and starting singing

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Lets just say I had to quickly change my trousers.
Kudler was creased up on the floor laughing ... when she regained her composure she says
'at least he has come prepared to work over christmas as he has brought his own tea towel' kudler hates drying dishes.. I think she was taking a dig at me....

I called Sue over now I realised RP was alive and kicking ... and she being such a doll honoured RP with a pair of reindeer earings... he did look a bit bewildered to say the least ....but they do suit him

'Welkum to the UK Reeplacmnt bear.. so pleezd to hve u heer for Kristmuz. arh home is yr home ... help yourself 2 wat u want nd hope yr stae is a cumfurtable 1'

He looked at me with a blank expression ......I don't think he understood me... it must be my Northern England accent !!!

It is not going too well !!!!
To make matters worse suddenly we were mobbed by the menagerie that Sue has in the toy box... they are out of control I tell you

'ya no my lyttle ol' Inglish cuzins, this heer bare is gonna get sum shut I...eye hv barelagg. c y'all l8r'

No idea what he said but he got back in his box and covered himself up in his tea towel

Next morning I got another shock ... the box was empty... I knew I shouldn't have left him alone with the cats........ ...... (to be continued....)
