The other day my Dad told you the story of our holiday to Portugal, so I thought I would tell you the story of our holiday to the Dominican Republic – or at least, part of it. The particular day in question my Dad had gone out on an excursion on a yacht and, as I don’t do travelling on water too well, I had stayed behind on a very hot day sipping drinks around the pool. Now before long the heat was beginning to get the better of me and, although I don’t like cold water, I just had to have a little dip in the swimming pool. Who could blame me, the weather was absolutely baking!
This week Eddie and I visited our local Health Clinic for a Well-Bear Check-Up. Eddie hasn’t been feeling himself over the past few weeks and we both thought a MOT was in order. So we took ourselves off to see a professional Bear Medic. We had a little chat with the nurse on the way in and she took down his vitals; weight, height and blood pressure. These were all fine. The nurse then started to ask a few rather probing questions, Eddie found these a little embarrassing and they were not to his liking. He gave the nurse a very hard stare at one point but she explained that asking such questions about his bowel movements were essential to try and ensure he was fit and well.
Today, I would like to set the record straight concerning yesterday’s post concerning my accusations of neglect of the bears by the Bearkeeper and the Jammy Toast logo being “bling”. I shall address the issues which have been raised, not by me but, by exaggeration and the over active imagination of Mr Bearkeeper. In other words, he is just trying to stir up trouble for his own satisfaction and to cause a war of words here on the Bear Blog.
This week as a family we went out for our annual Christmas gathering, that being four of us at an all you can eat buffet! The Queen ate enough to feed a camp of six and my other sister was chowing down as though she hadn’t been fed in days. They had two plates of hot food followed by two plates of pudding and decided after those they would start the process all over again. At this point I was feeling a little queasy and decided not to join in the family tradition of stuffing yourself silly until you burst.
Iwas bored the other day and decided to have a look through some of my old photo’s, and I found some from Orlando when my dad took me to the zoo. It was a lovely warm day, I got a little travel sick driving to Tampa but it was worth it just to see the monkeys. Those of you who read our blog know how fond I am of monkeys, well this was extra special. I can remember it like it was yesterday. Fun times.
I had the pleasure of stumbling upon a little car rally the other week and met some really interesting people including a guy who had owned his car for nearly 50 years, I couldn’t believe it, this guy was 86 years old and his car was in mint condition you could literally eat your dinner off the engine it was that sparkly. Its hard to believe that someone could care for a car for that long, most people only have theirs a few years and move onto the next. This car rally had everything from Rolls Royce to a lovely little Porsche all lovingly cared for by their owners.
