  • Nana slept in a room not much longer than herself, when prone! Not much wider either! She liked to sleep with the window open a Mom would worry about that! Snow on her toes! Nana would bring her our dolls into her tiny off limits place to me and my older sister. When they reappeared some time much latter...their hair was curled and they had lovely new clothes. We felt magic had been done.

    My Teddy is now about as old as I am, 68. His once beautiful brown fur is mostly threadbare. His black eyes, just holding on! He is as real to me now as then. We are working up to a Teddy Bear picnic in the garden as now where we live there is a 6 yr old and a 4 yr old.. Angelina and Tadeo. Each have bears. The neighbor woman accross the street has a big bear her sons just got her for Christmas...we will gather bears!
