Honey Bear, Potsdam, New York, USA

Hello! My name is Honey Bear. I'm a non traveling TV, you see I only travel with my mom. I'm a mamas bear  ;). A couple years ago mom and dad where shopping at Price Chopper and saw me and my family. We were being sold to help raise money for the St. Judes Children's hospital. Mom thought I was cute and was happy that the money was going to a good place.

My favorite thing to do is play my mom's gameboy! One day I hope to get one of my own! I usually play when she isn't around, but sometimes I get caught. Today mom let me play so I decided to let Nicki Bear and Coco watch.

Today a new TV arrived! We were excited to see who it was. It was a little bear named Coop. He is very shy, but also very nice. At first he didn't want to get out of his travel bag but we told him that he was safe. After a little while he decided to come out. We chatted for a little while, he said that he was tired and wanted to take a nap. I'm sure we will catch up over the next couple of days.

A new TV arrived today! We were all happy to find out who it was and where they had come from. Michele put the envelope on the table and all we could hear was scratching. Finally the envelope came open and there was a mouse in there! We said "Hello Mr. Mouse!" There was silence.........Suddenly we hear "Mouse?" "Who are you calling a mouse?" I'm a RAT and my name is Angus!!!" Gulp! We apologized for calling him a mouse and he accepted. We all sat together to learn more about Angus.

Today was one of the saddest days of my life! Nicki Bear left today to join the USA TVT. I didn't realize how attached to her I became. She was the first TV that I ever met and she inspired me to become a TV as well. We shared many memories while she was here and I will miss her! It was hard for me to keep the tears back.

You will be missed Nicki! Good luck on all of your new travels!

I asked Nicki Bear and Coco if they wanted to hear my favorite song. They both said sure, so my mom fixed up the lap top so we could all listen. Nicki and Coco asked what kind of music I liked listening to.. I laughed and told them it was a surprise.

"If you go down to the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go down to the woods today
You'd better go in disguise.

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

Every teddy bear who's been good
Is sure of a treat today.
There's lots of marvelous things to eat
And wonderful games to play.

Beneath the trees where nobody sees
They'll hide and seek as long as they please
Cause that's the way the teddy bears have their picnic.

If you go down to the woods today
You'd better not go alone.
It's lovely down in the woods today
But safer to stay at home.

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

Picnic time for teddy bears
The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today
Watch them, catch them unawares
And see them picnic on their holiday.

See them gaily gad about
They love to play and shout;
They never have any care;

At six o'clock their mummies and daddies,
Will take them home to bed,
Because they're tired little teddy bears."

While we were watching American Idol tonight my mom was making friendship bracelets. We (Coco, Nicki Bear and me) asked what she was doing and if we could help her. She gave us some thread and thought us how to make the bracelets. I was excited to learn something new but it didn't turn out so well. We got all tangled up in the thread.  :thinking: We were sad but mom said that she would make us each a bracelet or necklace. Yay!!!

Last night we got to see something rather amazing! I still can't believe what it was. During the day mom told us that there was going to be a Lunar Eclipse. She said that we had to see it as there wasn't going to be another one until 2010. We didn't know what an eclipse was but my mom explained it to us. At around 10pm we went outside to see the eclipse. It was too cold for us to be out there so mom said that she would try and take pictures for us. They are a little hard to see but it really cool.

Since my dad and Piggy are on a business trip there has been a lot of extra room in the bed. I decided to ask Coop, Coco and Angus if they wanted to have a sleep over. Michele tucked them in and it was time for bed.

A new TV arrived today, his name is Fuzzy Wuzzy. I was surprised that we looked so much alike. I was afraid that my mom was trying to replace me or something. She said that she could never replace me. Fuzzy Wuzzy is shy and doesn't seem to talk very much. I told him that this is a good home and that Toyvoyaging is a fun hobby and that he will enjoy both very much. It will take him a few days to get adjusted.

Today I got look for a tea set for my Teddy Bear party!  I have been begging my mom to let me have one and she finally said yes. Since we couldn't leave the house we decided to look on Ebay. I'm happy that Angus, Coop and Coco were here to help me look. Mom said that we couldn't buy any old tea set, but that we needed to compare prices and find one in her budget.

Posted Mar 8, 2008, 1:33 am
Tonight mom told me that I could order the tea set that I wanted. I was SO happy, words can't even describe. I asked Coop, Angus and Coco to help me. Coco was in charge of making the list of party supplies we would need. While Coop and Angus were in charge of reading me the numbers off of mom's debit card number. I'm thankful that they were here to help me out because I don't think I could have done it myself.

Posted Mar 8, 2008, 1:48 am
Today my tea set arrived! I am so excited!!!! Of course it happened to arrive on the one day I decided to take a nap.  :rolleyes: Mom opened it up so that when I got up I could see it. I couldn't stop hugging the basket! I couldn't wait to some my friends. I told them that we will test it out in a few weeks, so stayed tuned.....

Posted Mar 9, 2008, 10:27 pm
I heard that there were 2 new TV's staying at my house recently. I didn't have a chance to meet them yet, when I heard the door of the bedroom open. I felt movement on the bed and didn't know who it was, so I decided to hide. There was a squeaky voice; "Hello Honey Bear! My name is JamaBanaDukLuv and I will be staying at your house for a few weeks." I didn't answer...So there was another voice and it said "Hello Honey Bear! My name is Hazle and I have come to stay at your house for a little while." I still didn't answer...I heard someone yell for my mom...Oh no I may be in trouble!!!

Posted Mar 9, 2008, 11:21 pm
Thank goodness I didn't get into any trouble!  ;) I told mom and the other TV's that I sometimes get nervous when meeting new TV's and people. Everyone understood! After mom talked to me I sat and talked with everyone. I think we will get along just fine!

Posted Mar 9, 2008, 11:40 pm
Today mom came home from the store and said that she had a surprise for me. I couldn't imagine what it was......I was so excited to find out.  :D She had a sweat shirt for me. I couldn't wait to put it on. I think its a little small but mom said I look so cute in it. It may take some time getting used to.  ;)

Posted Mar 10, 2008, 12:02 am
This afternoon I asked the visiting TV's and my friends to meet me in my bedroom at 4pm for a special announcement. Everyone looked surprised yet anxious to know what I may be telling them. *Giggles* I told them that they will have to wait and find out.

Posted Mar 10, 2008, 12:25 am
I can't believe how many of my friends showed up. I saw that they were all waiting for me, so I went out and said;

"I want to thank everyone for coming to my meeting today. It's great to see everyone again. I'm sure you are all wondering why I've asked you to come here today. Well I'm having a teddy bear party in a few days and I would like to invite everyone to it."

The crowd erupted in cheer! WOW, a teddy bear party! Everyone seemed so excited to be invited. I wonder how many of them will attend?  Mom asked everyone to squeeze in close so she could take a picture of us.

Today Fuzzy Wuzzy left on a special mission to Florida. He was asked if he wanted to join the USA TVT for a month. Of course he jumped at the chance! So we said our goodbyes and off he went....

Posted Mar 13, 2008, 3:16 am
Yay! Today was my Teddy Bear Picnic, I could barely sleep last night I was so excited! I asked mom to put on my favorite song while I waited for my friends. Once they arrived we started with bobbing for gummi bears. It was funny to see everyone take their turn, some of them got a little out of control. But it was harmless fun. After everyone took their turn I decided that I would dumped the remaining gummi bears on the table. My mom was not happy with me, but I did it anyway. Everyone dove right it! No one was hurt!

Posted Mar 13, 2008, 3:33 am
After I cleaned up all the gummy bears, mom helped me set up my tea set for us. Mom brought us some teddy bear shaped cookies and tea. Not everyone wanted tea so some had milk. We sat around talking and enjoying our snack. My friends told me that it would be cool if I could have a teddy bear picnic at the park or something. That would be cool but I'm afraid of bugs.....I agreed with them because I don't want them to know. I'm so embarrassed!  :thinking:

Posted Mar 13, 2008, 3:47 am
I saw that some of my guests were getting sleepy, I think this was more fun then they've had in awhile. I told them that before they go I had a surprise for everyone. They had no idea what it could be!  When I returned with my surprise everyone asked "what are these?" I said these are goody bags and I made them special for everyone coming to my party. WOW! They couldn't wait to see what's inside of them. Mom says that she will send them home to everyones mom's when they are ready to leave our home.

Posted Mar 13, 2008, 3:52 am
Before everyone left, we posed for one last picture. I couldn't thank everyone enough for coming to my party.  :D

Posted Mar 14, 2008, 3:42 am
Today Coop and Coco left us! We were sad to see them go...We have become close to both of them. We sat around and talked about all of the special times we had. Who knows maybe we will see one another again someday. I'm always sad when someone leaves. I seem to get attached to everyone.

Good Luck Coop and Coco!

We were surprised by the arrival of a new TV today! Her name is Wolletje, she's a cute little black sheep. Michele helped her out of her travel envelope and right away she started to talk with us. We sat together and introduced ourselves then posed for a group picture. Wolletje said she was tired from her long trip and needed to take a nap.

Posted Apr 3, 2008, 12:04 am
We were bored tonight and asked mom if we could watch a DVD.  She said of course and that she had the perfect DVD for us to watch. To our surprise it was Disney's 101 Dalmatians. We were so excited! She asked if we wanted to share a snack before the movie. Of course we do! Mom brought us two boxes of girl scout cookies, Lemon Chalets and Tagalongs. Yummy.....

Posted Apr 3, 2008, 12:06 am
After we were done eating mom told us to go get into bed and get ready for the movie. We all rushed to the bedroom and got into bed. She didn't know it but we were going to make this a sleepover.  :p Mom tucked us in and turned the movie on. Yay, we were so excited!

Posted Apr 3, 2008, 12:08 am
Today was a sad day, JamaBanaDukLuv and Angus both left. We were sad to see them go as we had spent a lot of fun times together. They said their goodbyes and promised to keep in touch. Who knows maybe we will meet each other again someday.

Have a safe trip JamaBana and Angus! We will miss you!

Mom came into the bedroom this afternoon to put the laundry away and she caught me reading her book!  :thinking: She told me that this isn't a book for bears to be reading. "But MOM!" I said..... I got in trouble and she took the book away.

Posted Apr 3, 2008, 12:32 am
We were quite surprised that two new TV's arrived today! In one envelope was Nicki Bear and in the other envelope was Winnie the Pooh. I was SO surprised to see Nicki Bear! She was the first TV that I ever met. I was really sad when she had to leave.

Posted Apr 3, 2008, 12:54 am
A new TV arrived today! It's a little puppy named Little Billy. He told us that he was just on vacation in South Africa. We were anxious to learn more about his trip.

Posted Apr 18, 2008, 10:36 pm
Today Hazle and Mister P Tom left for Germany. We said our goodbyes and wished them luck. It was great meeting both of them. Maybe we will meet again someday!

Good Luck and Best Wishes!

Today we had to say goodbye to Wolletje! We were sad to see her go, but she said that she was looking forward to going somewhere new. We said our goodbyes and wished her well. She said that she hopes to see us again someday.

Good Luck Winnie the Pooh!

A new TV arrived today! I was excited to see who it was, mom opened the envelope and it was Fuzz Bear. Hee Hee! I met Fuzz Bear before he was adopted by Sararingham. We have some catching up to do.

Posted Apr 28, 2008, 9:39 pm
Mom and Dad told us that since we have been so well behaved lately they were taking us somewhere special. We have no idea where we could be going, but we are SO excited!  :o

Posted Apr 28, 2008, 11:31 pm
Piggy and I wanted to take a bath today so the other TV's decided to watch. Michele told them not to get too close or they might fall in.



Posted Apr 29, 2008, 12:40 am
The TV's were waiting for us when our bath was over. I was happy to be out! I'm clean.... :D


Piggy didn't seem as happy as me.


I couldn't wait for the dryer. It's my favorite part because it makes my belly fluffy.  :)


Posted Apr 29, 2008, 1:45 am
Today we had to say goodbye to Little Billy, Tuffy, Nicki Bear and Horton. It's going to be lonely around here without everyone. We said our goodbyes and wished everyone well.
We hope everyone has a safe trip!

We were excited today because the mailman left a package at the door and we think it's a new TV! We were all wondering who it could be.... Our host opened the envelope and it was Cliff! We were happy to see a new face.  :D We told Cliff that he arrived just in time to go to the Tulip Festival with us. He seemed excited.

Posted May 11, 2008, 10:12 pm
Today an envelope arrived! We were all very excited to see who is inside. Our host opened up the envelope and everyone (even mom) was surprised to see who was inside! It was Pebbels and HitchARideMo!  :D Yay!

Posted May 17, 2008, 11:02 pm
Today was Dirkie's last day in New York. He was heading to Spain to visit with a new host. We said our good byes and wished him well. Dirkie promised us that he was tough and that he would be just fine.  ;) We all posed for one more picture then he was off to the post office with our host.

Bye Dirkie! (waving)

Posted May 17, 2008, 11:19 pm
Today was Fuzz Bear's last day in New York.  We said our good byes and wished him well. We all posed for one last round of pictures then he was off to the post office with our host.

Good Luck Fuzz Bear!

Mom told us a few days ago that a couple new TV's would be arriving this week. We couldn't wait to see who would arrive.  :)

To our surprise someone arrived just as we were leaving today! We had no idea who it could be. Mom opened the envelope and it was Bellatrix. She is a cute Ladybug from Portugal. She seemed relieved to be out of her envelope. We all introduced ourselves and off we went. We told Bellatrix that she arrived just in time as we were heading out to Syracuse.

Posted May 20, 2008, 12:47 am
My mom and her husband decided to take a drive to Syracuse, NY today. Mom said that her husband is always telling her about the shops that are there so she wanted to check it out.

The plaza we went to had a Christmas Tree Shop. Our host seemed very excited about this! I guess it was worth the trip then.  :rolleyes:

After the Christmas Tree Shop we wanted to go to lunch. My mom drove around looking for the place that her husband  wanted to eat at. In the end she never found the place because her husband didn't get the directions before we left the house.  So we drove back to Rome to have lunch.

Posted May 24, 2008, 1:31 am
Today two new TV's arrived! We were all very excited to see who it would be. :thinking: Mom opened the first  package and it was TheoSheep. In the second package was Mausi. Wow, it's getting to be a full house over here!

Posted Jun 22, 2008, 3:34 pm
Today we took a little drive to visit grandma's house.  :rolleyes: Mom said that she doesn't like going to their house but that she goes for her husband. They live in a town called Potsdam. It's rural so there isn't much if anything to do there. I don't mind going because grandma takes care of me if I have a busted seam or something.  ;)

Posted Jun 22, 2008, 3:39 pm
Tonight we were going to sleep in an RV! Grandma doesn't have a guest bedroom so it's either we sleep in the RV or in the car. Mom said she wasn't sleeping in the car!

Since Daryl and Mom weren't tired they decided to play card games. We were excited because we could play too. Gilbert, Muumipeikko and Bellatrix help shuffle the cards. Pebbels, Resi, Willy Wau and HitchaRideMo helped deal, while Mausi and TheoSheep gave you a card on your turn (if you needed one).

I just sat and watched while trying to get the cap of the Iced Tea. Neither mom or Daryl noticed that I was thirsty.  :thinking:

Posted Jun 22, 2008, 3:40 pm
Finally it was morning! Mom was up early getting everything ready to load into the car. One would think that she didn't want to be at her in laws any longer.  :) We all sat on the couch in the RV and waited to be loaded into her bag.
