The only way I can get a sensible conversation round here is by talking to the bears... and they tell me they feel exactly the same.

I have made him a quilt
How do we know that bear is a 'him'?  Does that mean I can't do the candy  pink quilt with fairies and unicorns that I was planning?

Hello and welcome Mr Bear, or may we call you TSP?  Or do you need a new name?

If you want a classic bear name, how about Gladly?   Proudly borne by Baby Grumpling's bear.

Helllooooo Peeps

Thank you so much for all your lovely welcomes, I feel very special !
Its been sooo frustrating watching Im and Herself chatting away to peeps on TSP without getting my Twopennth in, especially as regarding your lovely creations ... although I am afraid Ploshpeep, that Im definitely a boy and do not much care for Pink, fairies or Loonicorns .. sorry

I understand from the OOhs and Aaahs coming from t'other side of the laptop that entries for my quilt competition are now arriving and am much miffed that Im on the other side of the machine ..... but so pleased you peeps are taking pity on a bear thats left in the cold each night and creating me a wondrous quilty thing.

I hear rumblings upstairs now so must dash back to the sweat shop in the corner before Herself comes down to start her day .....

Oh, and Lowenapeep, I'm most definitely a Lush bear, created only this year, not fredbare in anyway ... but thx for the thought.

For anyone that doesn't remember it's: Gladly the cross-eyed bear! (Is there a 'groan' icon!)

The story is that it's one of those hymns, or whatever, misunderstood by a child who heard 'Gladly the cross I'd bear' and thought it referred to a bear with optical problems rather than something religious. Not clear that it's a true story though!

Ranks alongside the story about the child in a church service upon hearing, 'let us use the words that Jesus taught us' turned to his mother and said: 'You never told me Jesus had a tortoise!'  :D

My mother used to tell me about the line of a hymn which she misheard as a child and which she sang in such a way as to, how can I put it, cast aspersions as to the possibility of a particular relative entering heaven. However, I can't tell you the exact story as it may offend!
