Spot On!

He's here! Spotty has arrived!!!!!!! I'll let the pictures do the talking.

Just in case you do not know, my new best friend Spotty Barkington comes from the same awesome home I came from last fall: The Craggy Moor. Maybe your new best friend will come from there too!

Puppy Love

We here at the Bear Commune are happy to announce that another friend will be coming to live with us....another friend from Craggy Moor...and he's not even a bear. Drum roll please..... or maybe a sweet roll....even a dinner roll sounds good right about now....

Spotty Puppy is on his way to our house. He will be here any minute now. I'm going out to the mail box to wait for him.

What? I have to come inside now? It's going to take a few days for him to arrive? We have to wait?

Okay, folks, apparently, we're going to have to wait a bit so carry on with what you were doing and we'll let you know the minute Spotty arrives...

Medically Speaking

Remember how I said I was so busy in the fall? Here's an account of just one of my adventures:

In November I accompanied one of the little munchkins who lives here to the hospital. I've always enjoyed watching the odd medical t.v. drama..i.e. Adventures of Dr Strangebear, Dr Don't Killbear, and Colonel Hospital. Once I learned she was having a simple procedure (that's medical talk for no blood) to put tubes in her ears I figured it would be a grand adventure. Off we went to the hospital one cold, fall morning.

Trying on "the mask" which didn't make me the least bit sleepy.
I thought this might be a "honey drip" but nothing came out of it. What is oxygen anyway?
I'm so big!
Code blue? Hey, they use codes here. Like spies!
Finally, time to leave and off we went to one of my favourite places: Biggby! I got the Teddy Bear Steamer--hot milk with white chocolate and caramel. And I had a muffin. And a cookie...well, I hadn't eaten all morning.
And then it was back home for yet another adventure. (The Little Munchkin was 100% a-okay and now she can hear better too.)

Oh dear, oh dear!

I've been so busy having fun and playing in my new home that I forgot to update my blog. If I'm going to have a blog...and I love having a blog...I'm going to have to do much better.

I am going to update this blog just as soon as I'm done playing in the snow and making cookies and eating brownies and making Christmas decorations and snuggling and reading books and.... oh dear!

Well, at least I have my Christmas card finished so from me to all of you: Merry Christmas!

A Week not for the Weak

It was a busy week here at the Bear Commune. Every day there was something new and fun for me to do. One evening Miss Tracy let me go with her to the library. This book looks interesting. Miss Tracy says men rarely do anything while they are alive so she doesn't know anyone would expect more of them once they were dead. I didn't understand so I wisely said nothing.

The next day I got to go to the store where I was amazed to discover all the Halloween stuff had been moved out to make room for Christmas stuff! What happened to the rest of the year? What about November? Anyway, there were cool things to look at like this pretty moose who let me have a ride

And some prickly hedgehogs....

and a really rad sled. I hope Santa brings me one of these!!!!

A couple of days later it was time for Trick or Treating! I went as an American tourist in Hawaii. Hmmmm....isn't Hawaii part of America? Anyway, it was fun!

One for me, two for me, three for me....

And now I'm eating candy, reading a library book, dreaming of Christmas and sleeping. Goodnight.

Now that's a monkey!

I went with Miss Tracy to the grocery store last night. I was just telling her how excited I was to spend my first Halloween here when bam! Excuse me! Pardon me! Coming through! Right up here! May I? Thank you!

And then there was a big....and I mean big...sock monkey sitting in our cart. And he came home with us too! But first he told us exactly which bags of Halloween candy we should get and talked us into buying a chocolate cake as well. (I didn't really need convincing; it was Miss Tracy who was hesitant.)

Pep--short for Peppermint Twist works for The Big Guy--Santa. I thought Santa made all the toys and gifts at his workshop at the North Pole but Pep tells me they outsource. Too many people, too many requests. I had noticed some of my gifts said "made in China." I guess Santa still hand makes some special gifts but a lot come from special consignment.

Pep works as a gift broker. He spends his days on the computer looking for the best deals on the hottest gift ideas. He says it's an important if little known part of Santa's operations. Apparently, there are thousands of these sock monkeys, working all over the world, just like Pep.

Anyway, he's moved in so I guess it's not just bears here at the commune. I think we'll all have fun together though. Okay, I'm off to check out the book shelf for a new mystery.

I know this is my second post today but I won't get to post tomorrow cause I am going out all day on "errands." I'm not sure exactly what this means but I did hear the words "dentist" and "lunch duty." Should be interesting.

But the exciting news is: I got to go outside with my friends Alex and Stockton to play in the leaves. And there are lots of leaves too! It seems like they all came down last night. We jumped in big piles of them. We ran through them. And then we sat on the pumpkin to rest.

My sister Mabel says pumpkins like to hang out with each other. I think leaves do too. I think they like to dance in the wind too. I'm not sure what their favourite colour is but I do know they are hard to get out of fur.

It's kind of chilly here. Miss Tracy said she would make me a scarf. She says it might even snow next weekend although the snow will melt again soon. Wow! It's a good thing that there are so many fun things to do inside cause the other bears tell me it snows a lot here and it's going to get colder soon.

Oh---time for hot chocolate and cookies. Talk to you later!
