Happy Birthday to Me ......

Well, today is my birthday, I was born on August 20th sometime around 11 am. I wonder if being a late morning baby means I'm more productive at that time of day. Or if those born after midnight tend to be night owls? Which controls those tendencies, nature or nurture? or has neither got anything to do with it? Anyway, I'm not one to get real philosophical about birthday's. I just thought I'd share what my husband gave me. The photo above shows 2 shots of the same bear. The one on the left is wearing a mask, the one on the right shows the mask removed. The bears face (mask) comes off to reveal it's true identity. I thought it was funny, really clever & so cute. I'm not much of one for "cute" but I have a soft spot for teddy bears & most stuffed animals. As a kid, I remember the stuffed animals had more of an attraction for me than dolls. I honestly can't remember if I had any dolls. I wonder if anyone has ever done a study comparing the favorite toys children gravitate towards to their personalities as adults. Might explain why I've always had so many cats.

Here's a couple more my husband has given me over the past couple of years.

This one is the Love bandit, he's got a bouquet of red roses in his hand.

And this poor fellow is the Love Alert guy, as you can see, he has a bandaged head, a cast on his leg & a crutch. It seems I now have a collection of these guys. Not to mention the 3 or 4 others I have tucked away in a big plastic box. My secret is out, I have a thing for stuffed animals. When I'm an old lady, I'll probably take them all out of their hiding places at last & talk to them in my dotage... along with my cats.
All 3 bears are from the Vermont Teddy Bear company. They've got something for just about everybody.

happy birthday to me....
