The MEFFS Royal Family decided to have a day out yesterday as it was a Bank Holiday and, if nothing else, it would get Miss Chimpton out of bed for the day. I picked the Queen up bright and early and off we set to collect Miss Chimpton and Eddie for our little day out. First stop was Sainsbury’s to stock up on Miss Chimpton’s Non-Diary Creamers and then it was off to the Cinema to watch Bridge To Terabithia which was totally absorbing. Miss Chimpton and Eddie really enjoyed the film even during the scary bits.
So Sunday finally arrived and after dropping the car off at the finish line and getting a lift back with Miss Chimpton driving (a whole story in it’s self) we set off to pick up the Queen. Except the Queen had locked her wheelchair away and no one had the key. Well to cut a long story short three hours later (ok, slight exaggeration) we finally made it to the start line.
In answer to Kris’s question concerning the history of the Renault Bear I thought I would enlighten everyone with what I know. The Renault Bear originally comes from France. An animal of quiet charm is the small French cream coloured Bear. They have long been a symbol of the imposing wilderness of the French Alps. As noted conservationist and founder of the New York Zoological Society, William T. Hornaday, said in 1913, “The French Alps without The Renault Bear upon it is only half a mountain – commonplace and tame.”
Today’s post has no story attached, it is just to shut someone up he keeps asking for rather rude pictures of me. Unfortunately, he hasn’t seen very much of me lately and the poor boy is beginning to show signs of wear and tear. So today – hopefully this will keep him quiet for a while – Fleapit dear, this one is for you. I hope you like it and that is was worth the wait.
The MEFFS crusade to save the endangered Renault Bear has gained pace with another two bears arriving this week in the shape of Erasmus and Ebay. Both boys have settled in nicely with the gang but it is getting a little over-crowded in their enclosure (or is that on their chair). Erasmus has a certain quiet charm and is originally from Holland while Ebay arrived with little history and so we decided to name him Ebay after the site we purchased him from.
So, after a while everything at the Training Company settled down into a routine. I carried on looking after the clients while Chimpton continued to monitor the clients either in or out of the centre. We played jokes on each other along the way and got to know each other quite well. Chimpton – slowly but surely – came to understand why I had told her not to come to work for the training company in the first place.
