From when it first came into our lives, and the adventures it has had...
To where it is now ... and who has loved it ... and will continue to! :-)
We feel it is time to tell those stories to the world,
and not leave the much loved bears behind to gather dust on the shelf or in the attic ...
almost forgotten ...
So, Bring Out Your Bear, give it a really big hug and ask it to remind you of the stories it has to tell, I'm sure it will bring joy to your heart, and its bear heart too.
My Bear Family Tales
Over the years I have collected many old bears, well, most of them were new when I got them ... :-) ...
Here are some of their stories, with pictures of bears to illustrate them.
I have even linked some old family cine films, taken by my father, and featuring some of the bears in film!
I hope you enjoy reading them... (And watching the short bear film !!)
My Old Bear Stories Nou Nours
Old Bear Stories Nou Nours - Amoungst the Flowers
This is my mother's teddy bear. It was given to her when she was a girl in France, during or just after the war (WW2), so is about seventy years old. At that time they did not have much material for making bears so his body fur does not quite match his arms and legs, or head, and he is stuffed with straw, so is rather "hard" ... but still cuddly!
Old Bear Stories Nou Nours - Enjoying Sunshine and Wine
My mother gave her bear to me a long time ago, I repaired his leg joint with a piece of wire, bent into a sort of clip, which has worked OK so he can walk (and sit) again.
Old Bear Stories Nou Nours - Doing Sudoku
I took him home recently, and the picture shows him in my mother's chair, wearing her glasses and finishing off her Sudoku puzzle. Mum was surprised to see him, as she had not seen him in a number of years, and had almost forgotten about him. He has been sitting on a shelf in my house with my other bears, so was not forgotten really... (Phew!)
He told me he is excited about having his bear pictures in cyber-space, and I hope you enjoy seeing them!
I hope you have had fun reading my story about bears , and seeing the teddy bear pics.
The Little Bear Movie Slot
Here you can watch some of the home bear movies taken by my father, using a 9.5mm cine camera or later on a 16mm cine camera featuring, to some extent Nou-Nours , ... Vision only, no sound in those days ... they were home "Movies" not "Talkies" !! :-))
