My buddy “little” brown bear

Here is a picture of my little buddy brownie. Mama mary has been dressing her up and taking her to aunt geris to cheer her up. Brownie has a very extensive wardrobe of daisy kingdom dresses sewn by the late grandma ruth and mama back in the 90’s and early 2000’s. Some were purchased already sewn. This one was actually sewn from a DK dress panel by mama mary altho it has a bit of red plaid in it, brownie thinks it is more of a fall dress than christmas.

This is pur first winter back north in. 26 years. So far It has been a very mild fall but mama lived here for 40 years so she knows it will be cold in no time. She is digging out molly dogs sweaters and has even started to knit a sweater for brownie bear.

Everybody please enjoy the wonderful weather while it is still here

Brownie bear and mama hope to get aunt geri out on her back porch today where aunt geri can get some fresh air and mama will work on knitting the sweater for brownie.

Take care everyone and stay out of trouble!

Big brown bear has tea on the patio

It was such a nice morning big brown bear decidedTo have tea on the patio. She kept an eye on teddy bear and betsy bear as they played in the yard. They are fascinated with all the ornamental tall grasses which are blooming

now.Please note Betsy bear has pumpkins smocked on her dress and teddy bear has Acorns smocked on her dress.

Big brown bear is a huge Boyd’s bear who is about 40 Inches tall

She is a great hugger and mama mary adopted her when her German shepherd auggie doggie died from old age. Her hugs were a big comfort to mama. Mama used to tease people telling. them she adopted big bear to ride “shotgun” in her car so she could drive in the high occupancy vehicle lane in Charlotte, NC when she lived there.

Take care everyone

Here it is June 2019



It as been a very long time since I posted a message. The winter was long and hard for mama Mary and all of us. There is a very serious illness in the family and as a result we packed up and moved north to be near our dear aunt geri. It is a hard thing to do …. move north from the Carolinas to southwest Pennsylvania in a very cold and snowy month of March but we did it, the move was very hard emotionally and physically but we are here and settling in. I think I have some pics to share. Not many of the move as it was so chaotic. Actually the moving pictures were on the phone so we will have to figure out how to upload pictures from the phone to here,Meanwhile here is a picture that was taken of me and my best friend betsy bear at easter,There is a very nice patio here and we plan to spend a lot of time relaxing out there.As a teddy bear I am really into relaxing.

I will try to post again soon. Take card all.
