The First Annual Great The Joy of Teddy Bears Invitational Only Race

Spaulding: We... Teddy: ....all our fuzzy, and not fuzzy, stuffed friends... Spaulding: ...were invited to The First Annual Great The Joy of Teddy Bears Invitational Only Race. Teddy: Kinda a baffing thought--"all invited" but "Invitational Only Race". Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe Spaulding: It's a flying race... Teddy: ...a flying and FALLING race.... Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe Spaulding: And held in Professor Sigmund Furred's home. Teddy: Mostly held in their home.... Spaulding: ...also Mawson and Rumbles and their whole huge family's home... Teddy: ...but, my hand slipped off the throttle and Dee, Ding and I spent a little time flying out in the yard, after accidentally flying through the opened window. Spaulding: You weren't the only one who flew outside too! I know, for sure, we saw Snoopy and BabyBear followed you, thinking it was a shortcut. Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe Teddy: It was a grand adventure--a grand race. I still get goose bumps thinking about it--see?? Spaulding (inspecting Teddy's arm): No. Sorry. Hard to see goose bumps under such fur. Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe Teddy: We should start from the beginning! Spaulding: Does that include getting all dressed up before going over? Teddy: Would the gals ever talk to us again if we didn't tell of their fine outfits? Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe Spaulding: Lady and Valentine were going to make their outfits, but with Halloween just a few days earlier, and all the sugar we ate, it was hard to keep still enough to do that. Teddy: The gals knew Mommy kept her material and nose-shins.... Spaulding: ...although we've never seen a shin with a nose... :::::::::::::Mommy stops for a moment to explain what n-o-t-i-o-n-s are::::::::::::::::::: Teddy: Ahhhhh, I get it....anyway, Mommy keeps it all down in the basement with all those need-to-be-adopted Teddy Bears... Spaulding: ...who were also invited to the invitational.... Teddy: the gals climbed down to the basement, got those other neighbors into the spirit and beary buddies got decked out for the race. Spaulding: They found the bag of spiffy looking hats Mommy made for Teddy Bears and Lady chose a straw hat with flowers around it, ... Teddy: ...but, since Valentine is so proud that she is the only girl with her own hat that Mommy made in our close family, so far, she decided to wear her red, white and blue ski cap that covered her ears to keep them warm.... Spaulding: Well, it kinda slipped off and her ears were on the outside of it when we had that banana split accident. Teddy: Shhhhhhhh, don't get ahead of the story! Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe Spaulding: Both gals chose long dresses with feather boas and beaded necklaces. Teddy: Some of the need-to-be-adopted bears wore the same kinds of outfits too. Spaulding: Unlike peoples, stuffed animals find it a compliment if they see others in the same outfit, so it was good they had matching outfits. Teddy: But you looked particularly smart that day! Spaulding (beaming a bright smile): Thank you. Lady was inspired by a board game she found in the basement with a rich man on the box and you buy property and put houses and hotels on them. ::::::::::::::::Mommy pauses for a moment to explain Monopoly :::::::::::::::: Spaulding (raising his mussle up in the air proudly): I wore something called a Top Hat, and had tails on my tail, with a black and white striped vest and matching pants. Teddy: You look like George W. Bush when you do that with your mussle in the air! Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe Spaulding: You and the kids looked really spiffy too! Teddy (beaming with his usual sweet smile): Thank you. When my nephew and niece assumed they would be with me in the helioplaneship boxcar, no one had the meanest to tell them that I was going alone. Since it would just be them and me, we decided we should dress properly to be IN the race. Spaulding: My kids did look great in their auto mechanic coveralls with the denim and white stripes, complete with little oil splotches on them, but you really made Valentine so happy when you wore the outfit she made for you! Quite dashing! Teddy (blushing, but still holding his smile): Having read about Snoopy's encounters with the Red Baron, I had to wear the same cap and goggles to fly our helioplaneship boxcar, but the coat was Valentine's idea! Spaulding: She told Lady that she got the idea from watching a John Wayne movie, and made you the same kind of to-your-ankles-cowboys-on-a-cattle-drive light brown suede coat. You looked so good! Teddy (honestly, with no pride, but with his usual confidence): Un Hunh! But, Axlerod, despite beary buddy else dressing up, still wore his usual outfit... Both: His T shirt. Kehehehehehehehehe Spaulding: So you would be rested and ready, Axlerod drove us all to Down Under. Teddy: It's hard to give up driving beary buddies, but Australia is far, far away and I needed the rest. Spaulding: We were afraid we might not find the place.... Teddy: Australia is a beary big country and not as many people on the west side of it as the east side.... Spaulding: ...but we aren't people and with that many stuffed animals gathered together with all of their flying pillows and blankies and boxes and rocks, it was easy to find! Teddy: Because of the Magical Time Thingy, we all arrived at the same time! Spaulding: The spek, the spec...the spec-tate...the race watchers all started gathering in the corner of the room, but there were so many, we ended up taking up all of the floor. Teddy: All the racers lined up along the starting line where Oscar Guide Pup and Blizzard the Husky told us to, but ,since there were so many of us, some of us were over others, who were over others, who were over others.... Spaulding: I wasn't sure the race would start, with all the pillows and cushions and boxes accidentally bumping into one another and plushes falling off onto other cushions. Teddy: The kids were so excited about racing that they kept calling after you..."Daddy, Daddy, watch us." Then I was trying to settle them down and next thing I remember was banging my nose into BabyBear's DoublyUp pillow and smelling the pretty herbs! Smelled like spaghetti night at home! Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe Spaulding: I didn't even know Ding could drive the helioplaneship boxcar until he drove down to get you. Teddy: Me either. And, we hadn't gotten back to our starting position before someone in the crowd shot off the cork gun and the "POP" sounded like a starting gun so all our flying vehicles started zooming away. Spaulding: It looked like a tornado with Teddy Bears, stuffed doggies, penguins, bunny rabbits, and hippos falling off and pillows rounding back to try to catch their stuffed animal before the animal hit the ground. Teddy: I love flipping off the sofa and doing somersaults all the way across the floor, but when Dee fell off, I immediately thought she would get hurt.... did I, because she's my little girl, but we both KNOW stuffed animals can't get hurt! Teddy: ...especially if our boxcar has a mind of its own and swooshes down to get her before she hits the group of plushes on the floor! Spaulding: You looked like you got to the front of the pack when the flying vehicles turned the corner into the hallway. Teddy: We might have been, but it was hard to tell when we realized no one told us where the course was or how far we had to fly. Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe Spaulding: When you all swooshed back into the room and caused a pile up at the window, it was several minutes before anyone realized that the three vehicles flew right out the window and around the yard. Teddy: We would have kept flying around the yard, if we didn't hear Amy's sweet voice calling to all of you that she couldn't see us anymore. Spaulding: You missed the part when we all realized that no one had made a finishing line! Proffessor Furred was the one who figured out that finishing lines and clotheslines were beary much alike and grabbed a clothesline and stretched it out so we could all cut up pieces to give to all the racers, so they would know when the race was over. Teddy: When I came flying back into the window, I caught what The Jersey Devil was doing out of the corner of my eye. He didn't trip on his tail, he tripped on the finish line! Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe Spaulding: Can you believe so little banana split could cover so much of Axlerod!? Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe Teddy: When we racers saw the big pile of plushes gathering around Ax to clean him up with their tongues, the race almost stopped then so we could all join in! Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe Spaulding: I think Oscar and Blizzard were beary O-fish-awl to walk away from the banana split eating contest to give each racer a finish line, but I never saw who won the race! Teddy: Well, they gave each racer a piece of the finish line and made that moment the moment where we came in to the end. Since I was the third one to receive my piece of rope, I decided I came in third. Spaulding: Yeah, but WHO WON the race?! Teddy: Oh, come now! As often as we play games together and play games with Mommy and Daddy! Who ALWAYS wins those games? Spaulding (knitting his brows in bafflement): We do?! Teddy (with a big mischief grin): And who wins if we lose?! Spaulding (a smile slowly growing on his face): I don't remember EVER losing! Teddy (bearly containing his laughing fit): EXACTLY! Both: Kehehehehehehehehehe ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::both are laughing too hard to continue this entry, so Mommy lets them down on the floor so they can literally ROFLOL (rolling on the floor laughing out loud):::::::::::::::::::::::: Mommy: Sooooooooo, until next time....kehehehehehehehehehehehehehehe
