My Old Friend

Photobucket
This is Mr. Bear, my first best friend. He has been with me since I was 6 months old.

This is one of my favorite Lolcats. Do you notice the resemblence! Now I realize that Mr. Eye Bear & Mr. Bear are not twins, but I do think Mr. Eye Bear could be Mr. Bear's brother. At least a cousin.

I must tell you that they would have more of a resemblence if Mr. Bear had more of his fur. Due to unfortunate accident that left him with many broken bones, he was required to wear a body cast made out of orange floral shelf paper. The adhesive kind. (I do not want any snickers about my my childhood imagination. I'm an only child. It was lonely.) Once his body cast was removed we, Mr. Bear & I, were dismayed to find that the only real fur remaining was at the top of his legs, right below his butt. I tried to take a picutre for demonstration, but Mr. Bear balked at having his tushie all over the internet. Pictures like that can really hurt a persons career.

I have a pink dog that I had named FiFi when I was somewhere around two years old. Both of her ears have been replaced as well as her eyes. She also has no fur left. However, she's still cute and sweet and I put her on my shelf to honor her. Long live the stuffed animal!

Thanks for coming by my blog today from SITS! I read your post about coffee filters and I posted a tip about those too!

I use them as wax strips (for face waxing). While I hate the fact that I have to wax, I hate spending lots of money on the paper strips! Coffee filters work just as well...and I wouldn't have known if my MOM wouldn't have told me. Who knew! : )

By the way--your devotional blog is very inspiring!

Your Mr. Bear resembled my Bluey only my guy is, well, Blue!

So we are packing up stuff to get ready to show our house and my 3 year old ran to me and gave me Bluey. She said that he HAS to be one of the few that aren't boxed into storage. She said I needed him. I thought that was sweet.

I loved this story. It reminded me so much of my childhood antics and took me down memory lane. Thanks for making me chuckle! I think it's wonderful that most of us have a Mr Bear in our lives - a constant, a fantastic listener and a holder of our dreams, hopes and so tolerant of our ministrations!
