Today is proving to be a rather hectic day. At the moment it is very quiet around here with all the Bears out trick or treating but I am expecting trouble at any minute. They left the house armed with little buckets to put all their treats in except for Razzi… he has gone out with three packets of flour and half a dozen eggs are missing from the fridge. God help anyone who refuses them a treat!!
The Bear’s Blog is in black tonight after we were all devastated by the sad news that former cricket umpire David Shepherd has died after a long battle with cancer. He was known around the world as one of the best and fairest cricket umpires in the game. Players and fans all warmed to his jolly Santa Clausesque figure and his quirky sense of humour, most famously expressed in his superstitious habit of standing on one leg whenever the score reached 111.
Today is Bearkeeper Davidd’s birthday so all The Bears would like to wish him a Very Happy Birthday. We asked him what he wanted for his Birthday and because we all love him so much we asked what he would like us to buy as a present for today. He said to prove how much we all think of him we had to get him something that would do 0 – 200 in less than four seconds… so we got him a set of bathroom scales.
