Fownd 'im or did he fynd us?

after a week or so of fretin...... the lost old 'bluddy.' bear turned up... wearing a Santa hat and a 'winnerz' medal.

It turnz owt he has bin partying until the wee small 'ourz and he haz bin wurried about returning to the US coz of the fact he was 'replacement baer' and not the numero uno bear. Howeva, on his travelz he 'as told me he has met a new friend... who he wants to take bak to the U S of A.
He made me cloze my eyez whilst he put whoeva in the box, plus sum otha perzonal items ... he then jumped in himself and slammed the lid shut..........

All I could 'ere was a muffled voice calling 'seal us up and send us off'...... Sue, I can tell you was distraught, his behaviour was so rash and bizarre!!! She wanted to say goodbye properly .. instead all she cud do was hug de box.

I persawaded my Kuddler to take the box to the post office for me (god only nose wat he put in it as it was way heavy and I cudn't manage him on me own!!)

So dat is dat... RP is off back to Cal-eee- forn -eye- A... it only feels like yesterday when he landed in Blighty

So here are a few linx to the adventures RP had in the UK

Safe journey RP ... we will miss you xxx

Every full moon me and my friends just have to do this ......

I wish I didn't have stuffing for brains because I'd like to know why.

If anyone can offer a cogent and rational explanation I'd be extremely grateful.

In the meantime I'm going to catch up on some reading ..... Descartes discourse on method should fit the bill ...... and then a little snooze.

Yours in anticipation

Mr. G. Teddington M Phil -led with stuffing

They Bearly Noticed Us

Way hay ... we did it ... we smuggled ourselves into the huge amount of luggage that was being taken on holiday. I knew me and Replacement Bear (RP) could so it ...

It was way stuffy being stuffed in the boot (trunk for BB & our other American readers)... I must say RP and my years combined add up to a whole huge amount years and that is no way to treat us guys ... but hey we were going on holiday (in secret) so I suppose it is worth it.

Don't ask me where as there ain't no windows in a boot (trunk).

Where ever we were when the kuddlers were distracted unpacking we explored our surroundings.... fizzy booze and chocolate ... how better can this holiday get??

mmm have you noticed how RP made it head long to the 'pop'??

The weather was glorious and me & RP caught some 'rays'... I must say that the heat on the old fur made RP smell a bit!!!

After arduous days lying in the sunshine we spent the evening chilling out with the other stuffed toys Teen Kudler had taken on holiday. We played cards, told tales of our Kudlers and generally hung out ... on the last night RP appeared in my Elvis costume... my he has that accent down to a 'T'... my how we laughed.. Blue Suede Shoes is forever imprinted in my stuffing!

The biggest realisation that both RP & I had when on holiday is that some Bears do actually work for a living ... not just working at being cute and cuddly but real work!!!

This guy (Billy Bear) works his cotton socks off entertaining very small kudlers ... but hey he does have a way with the ladies oh and cows ;-)

new look...

Just thought us lazy bears could use a new look .. whatya think ???

I know BB is maxed out with her kuddlers booty skool ... and GT's kudler is having to lie down and take a nap many times in a day ..... my kuddler is maxed out at work too but at the moment is on her 'jolly's'

She has a new friend .... I am distraught.. it is a whizzy new lappytop..... she has no time for me ... however, she is about to go on holiday and I have been leaping up and down shouting 'take me .. take me!'

Gawd I hope she hears me
I even have holiday shorts

oh yeah the American Bear wants to come too !!

trEE tiNGs...

number 1
Sorry fellow bears (GT & BB) but I have had to change the template for our blog as my nasty ISP won't load the other one :-(

number 2
I am outraged as there are bears being exploited around the world have to do ridiculous things just to earn a sniff of honey....... [a word of warning this may shock some fellow bears watching ] this bear in particular has to relinquish his fur .. I am enraged at such exploitation

but what is even worse he was forced in one session to wear this hideous mask

number 3
This weekend it is a bear party over at BT's place ... wow 500 posts that is one helluva game bear .. there is kake, ginga beer and loads of treats for bears and their followers over there...... come on guys ... pick up, put on your party shoes and join in ... bears just love to pawrty ....

tag and 'bear all'

Yes us bears have been 'tagged' to reveal 7 weird facts about us. The fact we are stuffed toys must be number one !!! However, us bears got together and came up with 7 more. The tag was from Dear Frac :-)

Just putting a slant on the answers can you guess who said what 'bear in mind we are all guys' ??

Although lacking in certain departments I still look at girly bears
I'm thinking of getting a piercing.

I have a collection of tattoos and shoes

Repairs to my hands and feet were made from a WWII flying jacket

Daddy Papersurfer punches me at least once a week ....... and I like it
I'm still wearing that little black bra that Olga's blog-mistress made for me.........and I like it.
I love to dress up male or female and I like it

Now we have to tag another 7... Snowy Bear has strutted his stuff... are there 7 from Snowy & Grumpy??

Hello ...My Name is Barnaby Bear

My name is Barnaby

I don't have one particular 'cuddler' as I belong to a Primary school in the United Kingdom.
I have many cuddlers aged 3 to 10 years old & have no idea how old I am (I know there will be a lot of 'age envy' out there lol) nor can I add mt Bearthday to the list.

Despite all my many cuddlers I do yearn to have just one special cuddler but I have learned to accept that my life is to be passed from one person then to another. A bit like Olga really. However, I am passed to a young cuddler and have never been used as a sling shot (I have been 'sicked' on a few times but would rather not talk about that eeeew).

My role with these young cuddlers is to be whisked around the world and holiday. It is a tough old role but you know someone has to do it (I must say and hate to admit it BUT these young 'cuddlers' cuddle hard for England as they look at me as being so special....I do get exhausted with all the hugz and adventures)

Oh I even have a passport too like Olga. I have been all around the Egypt, America, Hong Kong, Australia, Africa, all around Europe oh my word too many places to mention .. but I love to just come home and sit and contemplate my furry navel in the safety of my school.

When I return to school the 'cuddler' of the moment puts up a display of what we have done and where we have been.

I managed to save one adventure I had in Jersey a few years ago

It will be February soon and we are lacking on Bearthday Bears ...... so come on hook up and join in we just love bearthdays :-)

There was a new arrival this Christmas and I must say at first my nose was put out of joint a bit *grumph* ........... I thought she was rather soppy. I really prefer being on my own just watching the world go by ...........

.......... but we started chatting and actually Geraldine turned out to be quite friendly and we have a lot in common including some relatives in Upper Dicker.

Apparently an older Ted makes her feel more secure and safe .......... who am I to argue? *grumph*

Please don't tell Daddy Papersurfer - he's still under the misapprehension that he's my only friend. He can get a bit jealous.

Tomorrow we're going to try and sneak out to play bingo in the village hall - I hope my arm doesn't fall off.

Drowsey's Dirty Doll (Yes, Another One)

I Never Had a Name.
That's right, I never had a name and now I'm all smelly!
Look at me, I'm so pretty and cute but the little girl who "owned" me never named me.
She was a bit spoiled anyway and had way too many dolls. Of course most of them at least had names. Sheesh. She did like me and always kept me in very good condition. Although I seem to be missing an elastic band for one of my braids. But that's the least of my problems.

You see, I got caught in a flood and now have a moldy smell. The worst part? The grown-up lady is allergic to mold and keeps me in a Rubbermaid container with a few other smelly keepsakes. It's one nasty smell-o-ramma in here!

I'm too cute and precious for this crap! But what's a doll to do?

Here's my plea: Convince this lazy lady to give me a bath! If your comment persuades her to wash me, then you'll win this adorable handmade Blue Teddy Bear Glycerin Toy Soap!

welcome special bear.......

Today I got an e mail from Medstudent Wife :-)

The mail was titled 'a bear story for dear teddy' and the text simply said
' Well sort of... at least a real live birthday'....MSW :-D

Intrigued I hurried along to her little piece of Paradise and was simply bowled over ......Medstudent Wife has has given life to a brand new teddy ... you can never have enough bears in this world thats what I say....

The bear is beautiful and whats more it is KNITTED .... WTG MSW ;-)
We know how much Grumpy Ted's cuddler Daddy Papersurfer loves knitted stuff :-)

This dear teddy has no name but this is not a problem (unlike when we featured Jolly Jack Tar bear with no name). Very soon this special bear will have a brand new cuddler who I know will cuddle the stuffing out of her and give her a name that is personal to them.

MSW has given life to this bear in order that it can be sent to a child who is suffering from HIV/AIDS in countries that are less fortunate than our own...... this fabulous idea is organised by Mother Bear Projects and folk from all over the world have donated money and knitted bears for this cause.

The childrens faces are pure magic and I must say that it has brought a tear to this old teddys eye.

Everyone who has taken part is simply wonderful and I wonder if there is anything Dear Teddy can do to help?......... my cuddler has been known to knit a few things over the years and I just wonder.......???? or maybe Busy Bear could get involved ????

I have added this special bears bearthday (wow a real birth day!!) to the Janubeary Bearthday list under the name of 'ta dah me'... as she has no name as yet

You must pop over to MSW blog and see how from a ball of wool (or 2 or 3) a beautiful bear has been created that will inevitably raise a beautiful smile .....

Thank you for sharing this with us MSW x
