This is...My most precious childhood possession.

Last week in a mad moment I came across a few bloggers playing a 'This is' game. I liked this one so I said I would join in.
I've been out all day and had forgotten all about it until I saw Julias version.
So here he is

No matter which way you look at him

he's in a bad way.

Its because 50 odd years ago when he was a lad, he used to get many a bath, and then he would get put through the mangle and hung out to dry like this. (Reconstruction)

So his nose is bit flat.

The theme was thought up by teacupsontreetops and the 'this is' game by three buttons.

Now, this is an edited version of the original post using my super duper newly accquired link-making knowledge so it might look a bit different if this is your second read of it.

What I really wanted to do today was to tell you about Mor Karbasi, but you'll have to click the link to her. My video won't upload . (Update: I've done it now, next post)

We went to Glasson festival and she was on at the afternoon concert and I spent all afternoon with tears rolling down my cheeks at the beauty of her voice.
Same thing happened in church this morning when we had a visit from the Ubangane Choir from Kwazulu natal. Just schoolchildren but they sang like angels.
What a lovely day apart from the weather. Rain...for a change.
Oh and I am really missing Porky and Blodwen.

Reminds me of my Murgatroyd bear----he was blue plaid and had yellow paws, face and ears---he literally disintegrated one day and vanished into bear air.....he went everywhere with me from the time i was 2 until 13, and i still miss him!

O o 0 my. My heart has leaped out of my chest and is dancing a happy jig over your beloved bear. What a TOB, (thing of beauty). He is tired, isnt he? What can be done for him? Not far from me is place called, "The Doll Hospital" where you can take your old dolls to have repaired. Is there anything like that where you live? Wonderful photos and posting.

I popped over from Darly's to see what Daisychain was happening...

what a sweet little old bear. My sisters both had one that looked about like this.. for some reason..I never had a bear. And.. any dolls I have are in pristine condition... perhaps I just didn't play with them...but I do now!

I loved this!! It's so wonderful that you still have him. That's just the sweetest thing ;) You can just feel the love he brings.

I decided to play along as well, thanks for turning me on to this sweet meme.
