It’s my 3 3/5 Birthday !!

Birthday 2017

Wowz.  It is hard to believe it is already my Birthday.  Seems last time I posted it was Christmas.  What happened to the rest of the year?

My mommy/editor keeps telling me that the older you get the faster the time goes by.  I guess she must be right (at least when it comes to this).

Sorry it’s been so long since I was on here but after daddy “left” (I don’t like to say the D word even tho mommy says it would be good if I did), I just hadn’t felt like saying much.  I think I am ready to get back on the blog horse because I know my millions of fans have really felt let down.

I couldn’t miss letting you all know about my Birthday.  It is always a GREAT day.  First I went shopping with mommy and stopped to get a special drink and a Birthday Cake Pop.

Then we went for a ride and mommy let me drive!!!  OK she helped a bit with the pedals and steering, but I did all the other stuff.  I am really getting good at that driving thing.  I may have to “borrow” her keys one of these days and take it out by myself with my other friends.  Yeah…I think that would be a great idea.

Best of all, tonight the whole country has a fireworks display in my honor.  Mommy already has the TV set to the right station and we are going to sit and watch them.

Thanks to all my fans for being patient with me for not posting, but I think I am going to be doing it a lot more in the future.

Happy Birthday to me,  Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday dear James Bear, Happy Birthday to me.

addendum…poot, I forgot mommy was my editor and she just told me she read about my plans to borrow the car.  I think she hid the keys somewhere.  Oh well…I shall find them….snicker……



Cowboys and tigers…

After our previous argument over which TV show to watch, we decided to play cowboys.  Since we didn’t have an outfit for Tiger, I thought I could play John Wayne, and Tiger could be my dog.  But Tiger remembered that Wayne’s dog usually dies in his movies, so he sided with Teddy.  We wound up playing Pony Express.

I don’t think Tiger would have agreed to that so quickly if he’d known he was going to be the pony…

TV standoff…

There was a Gary Cooper festival on TCM yesterday, but Teddy wanted to watch a Clint Eastwood movie instead.  So we decided to have a showdown.  He thought he was being smart by grabbing the remote that controlled the cable stations, but I took the TV remote.  He found out that being able to choose the channel didn’t mean much if the TV was turned off.

After six hours I think he learned to like Gary Cooper…
