Silly old bear…

“As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen.”
A.A. Milne

The most splendiferous day spent together at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art
viewing the Winnie the Pooh exhibition.

A marvelous adventure indeed…

Next was supper with a cooling smackeral of Raspberry sorbet


(Autumn trying Moppie’s raspberry sorbet / 2018)

And finally, back home with a new Winnie the Pooh stuffed bear…

silly old bear, Pooh…..

All the sketches of the Winnie the Pooh characters are from the actual drawings on loan
to the High Museum of Art in Atlanta—
many from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London or from private collections.
Most sketches date from 1928 and are drawn by E.H. Shepard

And Autumn is, well…just Autumn…
A marvelous adventure indeed…

“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
“Pooh!” he whispered.
“Yes, Piglet?”
“Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s paw. “I just wanted to be sure of you.”

A.A. Milne, The House at Pooh Corner

    My children enjoyed Winnie the Pooh and company. Soft and gentle fantasy that does not disconnect a child from reality. Helps to explain it instead.

    Oh how sweet, the art history teacher is already teaching her granddaughter! What a precious way to spend the day with Autumn and top it off with a Winnie the Pooh Bear.

    Our boys were secretly into stuffed animals. They had all the Care Bears, but half had been homemade by their mother. They had all the Muppets.

    But the only duplicate was Pooh. The older son had ripped off the vest long ago, so my wife made a green one for him, since he liked green. That way, we could tell which Pooh was which.
