Psst. The bear is getting older. Pass it on.

Hey! I'm not getting older! I'm getting badder! Oh, wait…

And thanks to Scott, Verity, and Larry for their well-wishes. Or did they wish me down a well? I get confused sometimes.

I'll have some tea, please. Earl Grey, hot, as Picard used to say.

And congratulations to all the winners of the competition ! As they say in all the best sports cliché books: I'm just happy to be here!

Gotta get working on the next installment of The Bear and the Girl now, and looking forward to what they're going to say to each other!

Take care all!

flower hi peeps
Tam in the Elmo Cookie jar is gluten free cookies
There is a Polar Bear that lurks in the Coffee house that is on a gluten free diet too .

*Peeking in the cookie jars * we are in good shape
* Giving the adorable critters fresh water and treats*
Stay safe everyone.

MMMmmmmm… GF cookies! Thanks so much Sara ! Hardly anyone does that these days, so, as a celiac bear, I usually don't even look at the treats. eat Lapplause

And I don't drink coffee – like many polar bears, I love the smell, but it never tastes like that! I'll have some tea, Earl Grey, hot, please.

Lovely, breezy day here in Toronto town. Highs in the low 20s (that would be the low 70s to y'all), but the breeze makes it feel cooler. Fortunately, I have my fur to keep me warm!

Good evening, y'all. I haven't been by much – it's been a busy period for me – but I have been warmed by the welcome and kind comments on my comp entry, and the story I've published – the sequel to which just got taken into repair for a faulty Third person transition. d'oh!

Anyway, just wanted to stick my head in and howdy.

ugh. didn't think I'd finish. just submitted my comp.

chocolate milk, please.

i've decided to protest everything capital. dontknow

sorry, gotta go. another busy day. will start reading the rest of the stories later tonight.

good day to y'all (now officially accepted as a word)

Damn! Just when I was in sight of reading all of the comp entries!

Well, at least we have Kat 's testimonial to go on, so I'll look forward to reading it, Ping !

Like Ping, I'm Canadian, and I have to say that I picked up "y'all" years ago. It's such a useful phrase that I find that I use it all the time.

So, take care, y'all!

Good morning, all! And hello Aussie Kitty – is it Wendy? hello2

I'd like a cup of tea, Earl Grey, hot, please!

And I'm pleased to see the comp entries rolling in, especially glad that Sara got hers finished and submitted! Haven't read it yet, but looking forward to it! happy1

So far, the entries are remarkably good. Of course, this is the first competition I've entered here, but the quality seems high – maybe lower quantity means that quality has been concentrated?

Good morning. I visited Stonehenge just a couple years ago but there was neither Verity nor dancing happening. Must have gone on an off day.

I see a mysterious polar bear has wandered into the competition. Hope he drops by to introduce himself though he seems vaguely familiar, eh.

Coffee is on and kettle is boiling. I'm settling in for a rather quintessential Southern Ontario Summer day (high of 30C, humid, chance of evening showers).

Good afternoon, Oh Glorious Leader ! Your fame spreads far beyond this humble space.

So – yes, I am, indeed a polar bear – and with respect, Rumple-deWriter , the fur is pure white, not off-white – I just washed it in the Arctic Ocean, off Iqaluit, in Nunavut, thank you very much!

Ladies and gentlemen of Stories Space , please allow me to introduce myself. I am James Polar Bear, a bear of very little brain, but enormous heart. I love people – usually medium rare (kidding – that's a little bear humour, you know) – and am eager to offer bear hugs to any and all comers!

I note, looking around some people that look kinda familiar, but please assume that I'm just ignorant. You won't be far off!

I love words. I love reading them, I love writing them, and I adore those who wield them with aplomb. Or panache. Or both.

I look forward to reading some of the great storytellers here, and hope to contribute my own little bagatelles from time to time.

If I inadvertantly give offence, please forgive me. I'm finding the ways of humans to be…strange. Bears are much easier.

So, hi! hello2

The Bearable Lightness of Being

When Bear returned from getting his lunch and marking the boundaries of his territory, Girl was again asleep in the rocking chair. One hand was trailing down the side, her head lolled against a shoulder, and she was drooling slightly. He stopped to look at her, and again shook his head. “Poor kid.” He gently picked her up and carried her into the great room of the cabin. She stirred,...

The Bear and the Girl

The Bear yawned and stretched, then walked out into the sunlight. He thought it was about time to patrol his territory, marking it out, and making sure other carnivores weren’t taking liberties. That Mama brown bear seemed particularly to like trying to nudge her boundaries over onto his, but he guessed that was because she had two littlies to worry about now. So, Bear started ambling...

This is not my story, it’s Chrissy’s story, and you’ll understand why she’s not telling it in a while. And it’s a true story, though I’ve changed the names and places for obvious reasons. The beginning of the end happened when my wife and I drove, frantically, along NY-68 south from Canton in upstate New York, near the Canadian border, looking for Chrissy. We actually drove right past her,...
