Before I get to the info behind the little one in the photo I have a story of sorts to share.
Growing up, Christmas at home was not fruitful (meaning piles of presents under the tree). Dad did what he could and always made the holidays memorable. In my teens I understood the situation much better and would ask for a teddy bear for Christmas. Dad being who he is would go out and get the most wonderful bears. I have a boss bear with little beady eyes, long pointed nose, little ears and a wild, wide, old-boy tie and a proper chap with a smart cap, glasses and vest who’s arms and legs move.
That brings me to the little one in the picture.
