"Synchronized Sittin"






On Wednesday, August 13, 2008
Bob T Bear (esq.) issued an "Olympik Challenge"
on his blog for a “Synchronized Sittin" Event.
Well I have never been able to pass up on a challenge, especially from such a well-known, handsome and esteemed bear.
(The chocolate is in the mail as you requested Bob.)
These bears seen here in the official Olympic "Synchronized Sittin" Event photo have not moved an inch in the past six months since my injury.
Points? for STAMINA
They are sitting in my old iron baby crib.
Points? for sitting in an ANTIQUE
Some of the the bears sitting there are used at Christmas.
Points? for partial COLOUR CO-ORDINATION
The white shawl draped over the edge of the crib was the shawl used by my son and daughter for their Christenings.
A few years ago my daughter had her name and birthdate embroidered in pink on one corner of the shawl and my son's name and birthdate embroidered in blue on another corner. She then wrapped it up and presented it to me on Mother's Day.
Points? for NOSTALGIA
The white bear with no eyes, nose, mouth or ears belonged to my 19 year old dog who we had to have put down.
Points? for SYMPATHY
They were the only bears sitting where there isn't any clutter in this room.
Points? for NEATNESS
The photo was shot by me and not by my more professional husband.
I humbly submit my entry.
( to you Bob, the good looking and intelligent bear judge)
Everyone who sees this, go over to see Bob T Bear (esq.) and tell him why you think I deserve the Gold Medal.
Hopefully he will consider write-in votes and disregard the blatant sucking up and attempt at bribery on my part.
Bear((( )))

Bonjour, Bear!
Re your comment about the size of the flight deck on the Hornet - it is small when compared to a modern carrier!

"Flank Speed" must be an awe-inspiring thing to see, especially when the carriers are doing flight operations! Think about this - you are the pilot of a plane trying to land on the deck of this ship that is moving through the water at almost 40 miles an hour! Talk about trying to hit a moving target!
