Sunday was the Artist Bear Event in Stratford, my plans had been much curtailed by a few health problems so I actually only had one lonely bear little to offer, I managed to occupy the rest of the six-foot table with a bear on loan from his new owner and a large classic bear destined for a Store. The show seemed to have a very nice atmosphere and although I was taking regular doses of cough mixture etc., thoroughly enjoyed meeting friends and chattering about the bear world. I also managed to offset the disappointment of customers, who were hoping to see more than one of my new small bears, by taking a number of orders too.
I normally enjoy the drive but there was a pretty constant deluge of rain and much surface water so it took longer than usual to get home and I am somewhat puggled after a very long day. Great joy of getting home is of course a massive slobbery hairy greeting from Angus and Posh.
