Damn, I seriously thought I'd see some kind of stuffed animal in lingerie...

Bah!

Lots of cute pics, and still hoping for a good mix.

It's cold and raining where I am, I gotta get my blood moving one way or another!

Cheers

I like the bathtub teddie (sort of), and the one of Dale and Theodore Edmund Bear is classic. Thanks!

Not exactly a Teddy Bear, but my lil'ole monkey hangs all over the place with me. It's main hanging place is in my car.

Has no name.


my monkey...perhaps I'll name it Bear just to qualify for this thread!

Winnie the Pooh and his human companion, Lieutenant Harry Colebourn, in 1914.

The bear was named "Winnie" because he originally came from near Winnipeg. He became the mascot of the Fort Garry Horse, part of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. Thus proving that real men have teddies.

Another Teddy - this was during his first year coming climbing, at the Peterskill area of Gunks. I have a friend who takes her dog up to the High E ledge for picnics(in a backpack) but I would never even think of ding it with Teddy. So...he stays on the ground, as base camp manager.

Moosie's friend in the teddy looks like an animal, or I'm no animal.
And we in Merdead are about as wet as you are...weatherwise...

yes, Debbie took that picture, Feb 8, 1980, in our Tarrytown appartment, I was probably reading from Stephanie's favorite book of the time, Home for a Bunny ("...A home for a bunny/A home of its own/under a rock/under a stone/where will the bunny find a home?") which we probably still have stuffed somewhere around (or Steph has it at her place).

Here is a photoshopped version of that problematic negative...


and the fact that is seems to be so ephemeral is a great metaphor for our memories...


...I'm not of the bring-your-toys-on-a-climb-school, so no talisman accompany me on climbs, but some of my gear is so old that they may be promoted to talismanic status...

Here's a picture of a girl and her stuffed animals and beloved cat... probably a couple of years after the shot above...


teddy bears of all sizes...
