Meet Bill....

You'd think he'd have cheered up after some lovely comments on an earlier post, but no.  It's not his style.

I found Bill in an op-shop (thrift store, for the Americans reading) about 18 years ago (Holy shiznit!  I can't believe it's that long!).  Sure, I was way too old for teddy bears, but look at him!  I thought he looked so sad that I couldn't bear to leave him there (hehe, pun intended).  

Of course, he doesn't really look like he's cheered up over they years.  I'm hoping he perks up when Pikelette comes along.  Maybe he's been waiting all these years for a little girl of his own (and if that doesn't work, I'm tempted to stitch a happier face on him).

Have a great weekend!

I think that's just his personality, but he's really cute like that.
