MEET BUDDY E. AND GRAMPA BEAR
These two characters go most places with us. Most times we can keep them out of mischief -but you just never know what they are going to do, at any moment.
Buddy E is the frog - he has really long dancing legs, like Buddy Ebsen (remember Beverly Hillbillies?). Buddy E. loves to get into just about anything and always wants to join in, no matter what I'm doing. He cooks, cleans (well messes up while I clean), reads, sews, writes (on things he shouldn't write on) and eats.
He likes a drink of Pepsi now and then
Loves the swings in the park and
Gets into things in my studio.
He is sometimes joined by a friend or two - and then we are really in trouble. Grampa is our travelling bear. He has gone to Wisconsin on the train, shopping at Oshkosh B'Gosh in Wisconsin, on boat rides, on picnics, to Canada and often stows away and I don't notice him until we are on our way, and it is too late to turn around and leave him at home. His favorite place to ride now is in Ben's carseat in the back of our car - he can see things better from that spot.
His favorite thing is picnics - any time - any place!!! And like all good bears - Grampa likes to rummage around in the food and see what's happenin'.
And of course, like all bears - he eats too much - but is happy as can be.
When we went to a cabin at Silver Lake, Grampa made friends with the Blue Jays by having his friend Murray give them some peanuts. Sometimes he is nice about sharing.
At the lake Buddy E likes to have a snack of Mexican food - and a good dose of hot sauce.
He climbed up on top of the birdhouses at my cousin's house in Oregon
And sat by her flowers - he was pretty good this time - didn't pick any flowers - that I saw
And took a long ride, dangerous on her wooden whale
Got dizzy on her whirling flower - urrrp
And swung n the aliums in the wind!
Come back again for the the later adventures of Buddy E and Grampa!!!
