A quiet Canadia afternoon

Today Leone came home with her new Vogue knitting magazine!

**much bouncing up and down of Bears**

She poured a glass of orange juice, and Daphne Rose, Robson, Noel 'Snowflake' Chompsky, Mosiac, and I all curled up on the couch with a knitted blanket to read the magazine.

**much drinking of orange juice and snuggling of Bears and Leone**

Meanwhile, the kitties ran around and froliced. Leone asked them to calm down. And by "asked them to calm down", we mean threw things at them and yelled 'bad kitties!'.

We really liked most of the patterns, like this one.

But some made us scratch us heads.

It was a very good afternoon.

**much nodding of Bears**

OK bye

Bon Voyage, Spike

Spike left on Walkaboo last night, traveling down to visit Leone and Jenn's parents. (The same walkaboo Noel "Snowflake" Chompsky and I made with Jenn and Jim for their wedding receptoo in August.)

What makes it a one small step for Spike, one giant leap for Bearkind, is that it is the first walkaboo any of us has gone on withoo Jim. Yes, Spike went walkaboo with Leone, and Elaphante--one of the Bears who came here with Leone.

We're all looking forwoo to hearing aboo Spike's adventoos with Leone and Elaphante. We just heard that right now, Spike is watching TV with Leone's Dad.

Have a great time, Spike.

*much waving of Bears*

OK Bye

Yellow Journalism!

Killer teddy bear behind deaths of 2,500 fish

This is a horriboo example of the worst kind of scandal-mongering and blame-the-victim headline. The article clearly notes Hatcheries supervisor Robert Fawcett as admitting, "...it's not known who dropped the bear."

Yes, who indeed dropped the Bear? Who tried to kill an innocent Bear, and in committing this heinous crime inadvertently killed 2500 innocent trout? Or was the trouts' death inadvertent? Did this master criminoo know what havoc he would reak not just on the poor Bear, but on the trout below? What cruel young fingers, sticky with death and Cheerios soot, executed this foul act?

And what of this "reporter," who overlooked the facts just to sell more of his tainted copy?

*much storming around in anger of Bears*

Solidaritoo accused Bear!

OK Bye

PS Thanks to Smartchickie for bringing this outroo to our attention.
