It was a rainy day, so no parade for us. Made it easier for dad to say no, without having to admit he'd be embearassed taking us. Besides, he still had some things on his help mom get ready for our picnic list.
Scruffy and Bro T brought some of his Chicago friends.
Benzer (in back; l to r ) Braxton, Skipper and Scruffy
It was great to see Scruffy again. The first time
he's been here since he moved to the big city. Notice how he's wearing his collar these days, all popped up, he really is a city bear now.
Benzer and his brothers brought their dad. Their dad is responsible for the Teddy Bear advertisement sign from 1908 you see along the side of my blog. He sent me a photo of it for me to use. So he brought along the actual sign so we could see it in person. He took a picture of it by our Bears of Lake Cedar Chest. I may have to post it later, as he's sending it to me.
Our picnic had to be inside. At least we didn't have to share with the ants.
Look bear sized hot dogs!
Then after everybody left we watched the Boston Pops Symphony and Neil Diamond, then the fireworks in Boston. Seeing Neil made mom happy after a long day.
With our red, white and blue light sabers.
Now off to bed, I'm exhausted, fun and patriotism wears a bear out.
Hope you had a great Fourth of July!
Grr-bye for now,
