GERALDINE

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.

Welkum Geraldine! You look like a very sweet gurl!

I hope GT doesn't corrupt you (too much)...just don't fall for that "Ooops! I have a wayward arm!" line of his, & yoo'll be fine!

I like your pink coat! Are you wearing matching knickers? I hope?

Grumpy Ted said...

Please don't mention 'knickers' - Geraldine is very well brought up and doesn't understand American brashness *grumph*

Geraldine surely does luk a sweet ickle bear and is that a knitted sout she is waring??? Maybe DP maybe perswaded to knit her sum new outfits .... then he can join in the fun wit you ratha than get jeelus....

Bingo is such fun when you are elderly GT but Gerry luks a bit yung for village hall bingo ... perhaps a bit of a beetle drive furst

I said "knickers"...not PANTIES! Gosh!!

Grumpy Ted said...

Geraldine speaks the Queen's English. This comment applies to both of you *grumph*

Busy Bear said...

Well.....what does the Queen call her UNMENTIONABLES then?

Grumpy Ted said...

She never mentions them - she gets someone else to talk about them. *grumph*

SnOwY bEaR said...

One believes you have become fairly grumpier my dear boy ... One hopes that dear Geraldine soon puts a smile on your face ......so does she have matching undergarments? My dear lady Sue has suggested if she hasn't any at her disposal then she could perhaps send a selection of her lacey finery .......tally ho, chocks away, simply spiffing dear boy
(ok is that posh enough??)

Daddy Papersurfer said...

Grumpy and Geraldine have disappeared ....... although there does seem to be some scuffling going from the cupboard .......

SnOwY bEaR said...

Busy Bear said...

Shinade said...

Happy day bears...I wuv you all!!:-)

Shinade said...

Oh Yayyyyy I can follow you. I was all filled up on follows but I am getting rid of some so I can follow others!!:-)

Shinade said...

okie dokie...this is going to be another task for this broad.

Grrrrr...I quit following a blog early yesterday but blogger still says I am at my limit.

I will get this sorted out...if I can find myself:-)

Daddy Papersurfer said...

Have you sorted yourself out now? - there's no rush - Grumpy is still engrossed with Geraldine - it's quite sickening really - he hardly talks to me now ........

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Grumpy Ted said...

It's fine thank you Olga ..... hanging on by a thread as usual ...
