Bears Paw Wedding Vase

Allisoo and her husband Grant gave Jenn and Jim a beautifoo wedding gift--a Native American wedding vase used by the indigenoo people of the Southwest and Southeast.

*much oooohhhhing and aaaahhhhing of Bears*

The vase is made by the 's parents. The groom, his parents and all their relatives go with the vase to the bride's house. The parents of both the groom and the bride give the young couple advice. The vase is filled with water or herbal tea. First, the couple drinks from one side, and then from the other side. Then, they drink from both sides at the same time. If they can drink from the vase at the same time without spilling a drop, "good understanding and a cooperative spirit will always be part of their marriage." (Jenn and Jim are still in training for that.)

Best of all, the vase is decorated with Bears Paws. The sheet that came with it says, "The bear if the protector and symbolizes physical strength and leadership. The paw is a symbol of direction and power."

*much agreemoo of Bears*

Jenn and Jim told us to say that they send their deepest thanks and appreciation to Allisoo and Grant!

OK Bye

They took this picture of me today. Or, maybe, yesterday; I can't be sure. The date on the file says today. But Jim's laptop is still on New York time, which leaves the matter doubtful; it could have been yesterday.

My name is Camoos. I'm an existentialist camel from Egypt. I met Julia in Cairo, and decided to travel to Canadia with her to live with the Bears.

OK Bye

Book Moome and Blog Blog Moome

We just found out about the book moome from Mystery Mommy. She got it from The Republic of Heaven. Upon investigatoo, we found out The Republic of Heaven is actually a blog, not an afterlife hotspot. The moome is as follows.

Pick up the nearest book.
Turn to page 123.
Post sentences five through seven.

Our problems started almost immediately, becoo the nearest book was The Oxford Companion to Food by Alan Davidson, and it's a big, heavy 1000-page+ hardcovoo encyclopedia, and none of us Bears could lift it. So we called Jim over to help. But he fell on the ice recently, so he can't use his arm. So we called over the kitties, and Spike gnawed on the edge of the book.

Finally, Leone came over and helped us open the book.

We did get to page 123 pretty easy.

But then, we couldn't figure out if the links to other entries in the encyclopedia at the top of the page should be counted as sentences, and if so, how many entries count as one sentence. But if we didn't count them, sentence seven starts a passage of text from another food reference.

So, we got tired of of the book moome. We decided to create our own Blog Blog Moome.

Go to a blog blog you like.
Find sentences five through seven of the top post.
Do whatever it tells you.

We went to our very own Bears' blog blog. In the top post, sentences five through seven are:

Pick up the nearest book.
Turn to page 123.
Post sentences five through seven.

*much raising of eyebrows of Bears*

OK Bye

Back to Normoo

Normoo for Bears and kitties, that is.

Jenn, Leone and Jim were all awoo for a long time, first at Jenn and Leone's Mom and Dad's (where Noel "Snowflake" Chompsky and Daphne Rose went Walkaboo in August), and then in Vancouver for Jenn and Leone's sister Julia and her now-husband Jason's wedding.

We Bears are very self-sufficient, but we think Chuck and Spike got quite lonely with no humoos here to provide laps and tuna. (Don't tell Spike we said that, though.) They are very happy that the laps and tuna have returned.

And we love to see Jenn, Jim and Leone, and all the pretty prezzies they brought back. And Jim made Decadoo Chocolate, which is like chocolate mousse, except you use three times as much chocolate and add orange liquer. So it's a fancy dessert caaaandy.

We wish everyone a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year!

OK Bye
Blinky, Calliope and All the Bears
