As we already know from his Great Uncle Bimbo Remembers column our Uncle Bimbo has a great memory of past events. However, what you may not know is he also has other gifts. One of those gifts is making up stories to help young bears get to sleep at night. Bimbo likes to make up ghost stories to frighten everyone into sleep. After one of Bimbo’s stories there is not a bear at Jammy Toast who dares to get out of bed to ask for a drink of water. However, because Bimbo is getting on a little he does sometimes get confused and mixes up true stories he has heard over the years with the stories he has made up. So there is always a little bit of confusion as to if Bimbo’s stories are true… or maybe, just maybe there is some truth in the story he is telling!

Hello, my name is Bimbo. I am Great Uncle to all the bears even though I am not a Renault Bear myself. It is a bit of an honorary title because I am a very old bear. In fact, I was bought for Davidd by his Grandparents on the day that he was born many, many years ago. I can remember many things that have happened in my lifetime and these are the things I write about in my column. I will tell you of things that happened not just to Davidd and me, but things I can remember from television, news or anything else that comes into my head.

Davidd and I are 57 years and during those years we have watched some great sporting events. Today, we would like to continue our series of posts where we recall our memories of those events featuring some of our greatest heroes. We have lived through England winning the World Cup (we were a little young, though), Muhammad Ali’s greatest fights, Stoke City winning the League Cup and Botham’s Ashes. Some great times and even more great memories which we hope to share with you during the coming months. Today we would like to share our memories off

As Christmas comes to an end for another year, it always reminds me of an event Davidd told me about as a child many years ago. He says it is the very first event that he can remember from his childhood and he swore when he told me years ago – and still does to this day – that the event actually happened. The event in question happened on Christmas morning when Davidd was around five years old. It was a normal Christmas morning and he had just opened his presents and was particularly excited to receive a pedal car that he could sit in and propel himself around the garden with. Davidd set off outside into the garden to try it out.
