“Promise me you'll always remember
You're braver than you believe,
and stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.
Christopher Robin to Pooh”
This is my childhood buddy Ted.
My grandmother brought him out from London and as you can see he is quite elderly but well very much loved. Ted is in foster care with my sister as his straw stuffing prevents him from traveling much these days and must bring some leather to repatch him next visit - because I remember.
