Thursday's Teddy Bears Picnic with Melody

'My Old Bears'
My old bears have been safely packed away,
But they whispered "can't we come out to play.?".
"We'd love to go on Melody's picnic today!"
They told me don't worry about falls and worse,
'Cause they'll just bring their very own nurse.
They are all set with treats to share, a rug and their mugs,
And can't wait for all the teddy bear hugs,
To sit under a shady old tree,
Sipping their sweet honey tea.
Sounds like teddy bliss to me!
I received these two bears for my 2nd birthday from two different relatives and I have never been without them. They no longer have their eyes and have had the fur loved right off them but I can't part with my old playmates. They will be 56 years young in July. (now that's telling isn't it)
Their "Nurse" friend has been adopted by me because her mother is retiring to the coast and is downsizing and didn't want her to live with strangers. (I adopted some of her friends as well which I will share another day) She was purchased at the Melbourne teddy bear show a number of years ago. My friend and I travelled down to Melbourne especially for the show. I don't know her maker but I have always adored her so she is a very well loved adoptee and so useful with the senior citizens in the hug.
