Little Bear's Adventure's
New Orleans Corn
Today as we gear up to barbecue for Memorial Day... I think of corn.
I've posed with a lot of corn in my time.
Most recently I posed beside a cornstalk made of iron, at the Cornstalk Fence Hotel in New Orleans.
Corn in Iowa
A few years ago, I posed in an actual field of corn, at a farm near Postville, Iowa.
Corn at Home
About 6 years ago, I posed with some yellow corn in the backyard. It was the 4th of July and Beth was doing a little corn shucking.
Please, try not to study these photos too carefully. I don't want anyone to notice how I've aged.
I've been thinking about Beth's son, who is getting ready to graduate from law school. I don't like studying, so the thought exhausts me.
Scales have something to do with law, so he's getting this antique set as a gift. That's kind of mind boggling, too.
Weighing Me Down
Beth decided to determine my weight, before she wrapped the gift. She said I weigh 2 grams and 850 milligrams... or something like that.
This is way too serious for me. I'd rather pose with flowers.
It's no longer Cinco de Mayo, but I'm celebrating again. I got a new sombrero thanks to Beth's friend, Kim. I had my own little fiesta.
Fiesta to Siesta
My fiesta lead to a siesta. It takes a lot of strength to hold your head up when wearing a sombrero. Even when your sombrero is about the size of a silver dollar!
I took a good, long nap.
It's Cinco de Mayo and I'm so lucky to have a friend. She calls herself Ms. Donkey, but I am re-naming her Lucky as of today!
Lucky and Me
Beth found a smaller sombrero, so Lucky and I might be able to do the Mexican Hat Dance now. The giant one that I've posed with before, is too large. It takes about 300 bear-steps to make it around the darn thing. Lucky and I have been practicing and should have our dance perfected by evening!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
