The Bear; When Mothers and Daughters Shop...

As you will soon discover, my mother and I are a dangerous pair when it comes to teddy bears (and antique photos, books, tea, stuffed animals, wine...well, you get the idea:). As I surfed ebay this evening I stumbled across this poor little bear. With only a few minutes left in the auction, he was bid-less. I phoned my mother (not a good idea as we get into trouble when shopping, especially when our heartstrings are tugged by an eyeless, worn, and beloved teddy bear) and told her to check him out. Before you knew it we were bidding on the little guy and counting down the seconds (yes, over the phone) until the auction closed and he was ours. So, in approximately a week or so (it may be longer as he is traveling from the icy tundra formerly known as Wisconsin) he will arrive at his new abode. His ongoing adventures will be posted on this bloodspot as well as FB.  Until we meet him face to snout he will be referred to as 'the bear.'
