Life With Bear #3 and Bear #4, plus a new photo gallery!
Hello good people.. Still no word from Bear #1 and Bear#2. Lately, we have been thinking they might be enjoying a sunny beach vacation somewhere in South America. Bear #1 is probably lying on the Beach getting a suntan while Bear #2 lounges by the hotel pool drinking huge tropical drinks..By night they stroll through vibrant streets, enjoying the nightlife and looking for fancy places to go and socialize! Of course there is no good reason for us to think such a thing, no evidence of their true whereabouts.. Maybe we are the ones who want to be on a sunny beach vacation because of all the rain we have been having lately!
Along with todays post I have added a “Bear search photo-gallery” page to the site. It has some cool pictures that have been sent in by readers as a show of solidarity with our Bear search! If you want to contribute your own picture, we and the Bears would be ever grateful, and we will post it with the rest! You can download a flyer to print from the “Downloads” page and you can email us any pictures to our special Bear picture email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you to all of you who sent us your pictures- you are awesome!
Life with Bear #3 and Bear #4 has been great. They seem to love being here, although they don’t like watching American movies so much. They have been filling up my Netflix que with anime which they watch late at night. Hushed Bear grunts and giggles find their way to my ears while I sleep, but it is more a comfort than an annoyance.
This Saturday Bear #3 and Bear #4 hopped into their Bear pouch and joined us at my piano recital at the Conservatory. They were excited to hear the music, and I was glad for the support. In my heart I was a little sad that Bear #1 and Bear #2 couldn’t be there. I imagine they would have stealthily snuck onto the stage during the performance and bear-danced around to the music, just out of sight of the audience. Later they would have told me that they were doing it to inspire me. Or maybe they would have climbed into the piano and lay down on the vibrating strings to get a good massage.. Hmm, It might have been a bit distracting now that I think about it. In their absence I brought a picture of them which I set up backstage so they could be there in spirit. Oh Bears, where could you be?! In the end,the performance went off wonderfully and I was glad Bear #3 and #4 could be there to hear it. Next, we went to the Ferry Building and had a small cake to celebrate both a successful recital and the anniversary of of the day my girlfriend and I met. We all ate cake and felt happy and satisfied. Later that evening #3 and #4 performed a small skit that they said was inspired by the music I played at the recital. It seemed to involve a sleeping Bear that gets woken up by a strange sound. He gets out of bed and sleepwalks to the refrigerator and eats a snack. Then another Bear appears before him spinning in circles. The sleepwalking/eating Bear then turns into a statue. It ended with the spinning Bear (played by #3) finishing the first Bear’s snack and dancing around on his rather large head. I’m not sure what it meant, but I was flattered nevertheless. Overall, another perfect day!
Here are a few pictures of Bear #3 and Bear #4 from this past week..
