Little Bear's Adventure's
I Am Ms. Donkey
I am Little Bear's friend. I am writing Little Bear's Blog, because he is trapped in Beth's camera case, back in Texas.
Beth didn't realize she had left her camera at their lake cabin, until she was packing for the New York trip. I told Beth I could go along on the trip and she could use another camera. Little Bear had so hoped to pose for Beth when they went to Lake Placid. So I posed instead, just like Little Bear did many years ago... before he was lost.
The Sign on the Rock
This is an old photo. It was taken after Beth realized Little Bear wasn't in her pocket.
Beth left a "Lost" sign on the rock, before she left town. A family found Little Bear and then noticed the sign and they mailed him back to Texas. The story is really more complicated.
Dear Little Bear...
Little Bear, I hope you don't think I was having fun doing your posing for you. You can tell I'm not smiling, so please don't be jealous that I went on the trip that you were supposed to go on.
It wasn't a very pretty day in Lake Placid. It was kind of boring, sitting on the fire hydrant, like you did years ago.
But I guess I shouldn't complain, since Beth didn't lose me. There was no hole in her pocket, this time.
After arriving in Houston from Lake Placid on Wednesday night, I found a wonderful surprise. I checked emails and found the photo below, with a message from Little Bear!
Impossible! What are the chances that this little guy who had fallen from my pocket would be found...by someone who also found my note announcing that he was missing!
Fishing and Horseback-riding...
And then I received 3 more emails with photos of Little Bear enjoying some fishing, horseback riding and visiting the summer ski jump area in Lake Placid!
It's mind boggling to me that the person(s) who found this little bear of mine, would have the same sense of fun that I have. Not that many people seem to "get" it... that it's fun photographing this furry little guy, in the midst of different adventures! How lucky is that?
My note to Bear
Took me a moment to know how to respond to this email "from Bear", but I decided to write back to the bear himself. I told him that I was glad he had been rescued by nice people I was glad that he was safe and sound, but I sure hope that his "finders" would think about sending him home.
I'll let you know if I hear back!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
