New Friend part 2

We set out the table with turkey and
cranberry sauce sandwiches some mince pies a jar of honey each and
some dandelion & burdock cordial yummy.

Master Jeremy sat down “well this
looks wonderful I am so very hungry you bears are so very kind” he
said “Thank you Master Jeremy please help yourself” I said, at
that point Tat 2 started to ask his questions again “Master Jeremy
could I ask how old you are” oh Tat 2 I told you not to be so rude
to our new friend” I said “Haha that's alright Tat you know
people and Bears have been asking my age for the last 40 years or
more! So I am quite used to it by now. I was born in Germany in 1916
which makes me 93 now (Tat 2 nearly choked on his mince pie when he
heard Jeremy's age) yes I am getting on for a small bear” Jeremy
“Wow so you were born as the first
world war was on why would someone make a bear with all that trouble
going on” I said “Well Tat the lady that made me said there was
so much darkness in the world she wanted to bring some love and
happiness at such a terrible time so I was born, I then went to my
new owner who was a small boy he gave me lots of love and I was
always by his side, the years went by and my owner became a train
driver I found myself up on the footplate of large steam locos with
the wind in my fur and the steam in my face as I remember we
travelled to many countries, could you pass me the mince pies

New Friend

I hope you all had a special Christmas with friends and family and Santa Bear brought lots of presents
Us Tat's had a great time we were slightly concerned about one of our presents under the tree as it seemed to move at times so on Christmas day Tat 2 and myself were very interested when it came time to open the present, we sat eagerly unwrapping it thinking there may be a Guinea pig or something like that for us Tat's.
Well we ripped off the last piece of warping to reveal a box, we lifted the lid and our eyes nearly popped out of our heads, as there laying in the box was an old Teddy Bear, I said "are you alright Bear" "The name is Master Jeremy and yes I am alright, but a little squashed" the Bear said, we helped Master Jeremy out of the box "can we get you anything" I said "Yes some cake and a drink would be nice young Bear" he said to me Tat 2 asked "Master Jeremy how old are you, where do you come from, are you going to stay with us" "Slow down Bear I will tell all in good time" he said.

Time for Tea

New Forest

Now two weeks ago us Tat's were visiting the New Forest in Hampshire, on the Saturday the sun was shinning so we set off driving through the forest, we got to a place called Beaulieu what a lovely place. well our eyes nearly popped out of our heads as we walked up the main street in the village as there on the corner was a Teddy Bear shop woo hoo our little legs had never run as fast except when we were chased by a bull once.
The shop called Bear it in Mind turns out to be home of Bartie Bear and all his friends, well us Tat's were welcomed in with open arms I have to say I now know what a child feels like in a sweet shop as this Bear shop was fantastic, Julie and Amanda two lovely lady's who run the shop said we could please ourself s, they introduced us to Bartie Bear who happened to be having a tea party on the day we visited he said he was waiting for some friends to turn up so we joined him for tea and cake, we took turns telling stories and learning about each other.
Then Bartie showed us his hotel and spar for Bears if a Bear is sick and needs fixing up they can go to the hotel and enjoy a luxury stay whilst being in hospital "can we meet some of the patients now" I asked "of course you can" said Bartie.
We started to meet some of the Bears who were in the hotel spar and hospital one Bear had some nose stitching which had frayed another had some paw pad trouble but were all very happy to be in the hospital for treatment, Bartie said we could go through to the intensive bear unit if we wanted, so I warn you now if you are a Bear with a nervous disposition don't read on.

We walked through into a lovely clean room with pictures of Bears on the walls three Bears were laying on beds Tat 2 said "They are not saying much Tat" I was just going to explain about intensive Bear ward but it was too late Tat 2 had gone over to one of the old Bears lying under a blanket and on a honey drip, before I could stop him Tat 2 had lifted up the blanket to see what was wrong with the old Bear.

The fur was there but no stuffing inside the Bear, he did not look well at all and at this point Tat 2 passed out cold fell from the counter top and banged his head on the floor he lay not moving. Amanda the nurse heard all the commotion and came in to see what we were up to she gasped what has happened here I told her of Tat 2's inquisitive nature "will he be alright" I asked as I was getting quite concerned at the time,

Amanda told me about the honey drip and its special powers as she connected it to Tat 2 he will be fine just give him some time.

Now I have seen Tat 2 get into all sorts of trouble but this time I was really worried he was just not moving Amanda the nurse kept checking him and the honey drip adjusting the flow, Bartie was by my side and telling me some tales of Bears he had met at the hospital when all of a sudden Tat 2 sat up in the bed “Tat where am I thought we were going to see the patients what's this drip why can I taste honey” “Its ok Tat 2 you had a fall the nurse put you on the honey drip to make you better” “Nothing wrong with me where's my pony” Tat 2 said.

Woo hoo Tat 2 is back to normal talking nonsense, so there we were visiting a hospital in the New Forest and meeting the patients then Tat 2 ended up as a patient just another normal day in the lives of Tat's

Safe and sound

Safe and sound

We sat by the lake together reflecting on the fate of the submarine and Tat 2's escape with the Bear to Surface Escape system, Happy Bears.
Hours went by as I sat on the side of the lake blankly gazing into the black water I was feeling very down and numb, I heard someone behind me say "weather turned out nice in the end" I coldly replied "yes" the voice came back again with "well thats not much of a welcome" at that point I realized who was talking to me. "Tat 2, Tat 2 Woo Hooooooooooo Taaaaat 2 your alive" I jumped to my feet and gave my brother a big hug "whaaat haaaappened" "oh Tat as I went down into the water I ran into a Cormorant who was fishing for his lunch and he got his beak caught in the tow line" "Oh dear" I said "well yes the trouble was he got scared I think he thought the submarine was a big fish chasing him so he pulled me all over the lake underwater until we hit the far bank as we hit the impact caused the air tank to burst and the Cormorant to escape so I was stuck there" "well what happened how did you get out of the sub and your fur is still dry how come" I asked. "You know what Ting bear is like he had put in all this safety equipment, I was just thinking this could be the end of me, when suddenly a big red light came on and I heard a loud bang the next thing I knew was I was laying on some grass behind the trees" "Oh I don't understand Tat 2" I said "Oh its simple there was a Bear to surface escape system fitted to the submarine although I cant remember much about going up through the water or flying through the air!" "Oh its just so good to see you standing there woo hoo I'm the happiest bear alive" So this time everything ended up alright I have to say I think we will leave the sub where it is in a watery grave, but I must thank Ting Bear for taking time to fit all the safety systems you saved my best friend and brother thank you. Love Tat x

Oh please bring him back.
Well I am terribly worried now as its been some time since Tat 2 and the submarine went down into the depths of the boating lake, the rain has stopped and the sun has come out "oh Tat 2 where are you you stupid bear". At that point Ting Bear arrived he started telling me about all the safety systems he built into the submarine, I said "I don't think they are working Ting" Ashley said I should get the boatman to pull the plug to the lake but I fear its all to late for that it would take ages for the water to drain, Ting said "Oh Tat I have a remote control for the safety systems don't panic" "well get on with it Ting" I cried. Ting started pushing some buttons on a remote then the handset made some funny noises "fizz bang flash" Ting started hitting the remote I could not bear it so I walked off around the lake thinking of poor Tat 2.

Worried Picture Description
"um where is that stupid bear"
See Larger image and comments >>
So there we were two Bears one submarine and a doubting boatman, I smashed the bottle of shampoo on the subs bow and we pushed and pushed "I name this sub Tat of the deep" I cried at the top of my voice " May all who sail in her have as much fun as we did building her"the sub floated out on the water and I have to say looked very good.
Tat 2 climbed aboard with his Naval issue sunglasses at that point there was a slight problem the shampoo that we used in the launch the bubbles were blowing everywhere, but not to worry we have more important things to think about.
The boatman was still mumbling something about Bears and boats as Tat2 set sail he approached mid way across the lake and gave the signal "dive dive dive" the sub started to go down into the depths Tat 2 and the sub disappeared, now the plan was to surface straight away, but ten minuets later still no sign of Tat 2 by this time the boat man had got in his boat and was rowing at speed to where we last saw Tat 2 .

Well us Tat's have been looking out of the window for three days now with no break in the rain. So we decided to go up to the shed and build something to enable us to get around in all this water, we are quite dab paws at this as we have built one before some time ago so with lots of banging and hard work and some technical input from Ting Bear we emerged from the shed with our Tat submarine MKII. Woo Hoo lets go straight down to the boating lake the home of many of our adventures the man who runs the boats at the boating lake said "thats a good effort Bears but I dont think it will work"
