Favoured of the Gods...



This is Blund. I stole this pic from "M's" Livejournal page. But the ironic thing is, I own this exact bear. His name is Blund, which is Swedish for "bear." I know this because I bought him at IKEA, the one in Pittsburgh. They've built an IKEA in Atlanta now, but those pokes thought it was some kind of Japanese car manufacturer. Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise.
Anyways, I love Blund very much. I tell people that all small toy bears in Sweden are recruited for mandatory military service, so Blund served his 2 months (he's only a baby) as a weapons guidance technician. Blund doesn't like to talk about it, but he has no idea how many enemy soldiers he has killed in his day. "It's all part of the job" he says. Here he is now, relaxing on a Sunday morning.

Today will feature lunch with 'S,' lots of coffee, and some evening hang out time with 'C.'

Cheers.

Top notch new look. It was nice to see Blund as well.

You got one of those Blund bears for Dominic when he was a baby. We found it when we unpacked the baby things to prepare for the arrival for Damian. Damian loves that bear! It's the only toy we have to take everywhere with us! I'm so thankful he's machine washable, since Damian loves sucking on his nose. Good investment Bob!
