Me and My Teddy Bear

In 1961, when I was three years old, a very special teddy bear came into my life.  I named him ‘Gregory’, after my favourite character in the comic ‘Playhour’, Gregory Grasshopper.  I used to spend my pocket money on this comic, my Dad used to read me the stories.  He has remained with me throughout my life, and has been a very good friend.  Here are a few photos of him, more will follow.  I was an only child and Gregory was my best friend, always there with a cuddle and always understanding me.

I had many happy childhood holidays and Gregory would always come along.

  2. This is a lovely post! I love the pix and the cute bear. We were just noticing a trail of photos of my husband with his Emmett Kelly clown doll the other day ;).
