Rome, NY , USA - 13th February 2008

By: Michele_one_L

I've had a pretty eventful day today. First we went outside to get our pictures taken but it was too windy and very cold. Hopefully we can try again tomorrow. I finally got my picture taken with Nicki Bear. Michele said that we are sisters! I don't think we look anything a like but I was told that siblings don't have to look the same. Michele asked if I wanted to watch a movie or something, I told her that I would like to listen to some music. She thought that was interesting and let me use her Ipod. I have no idea what an Ipod was but it was pretty cool looking and just my size. I tried to find a song that I knew but nothing sounded fimilar. I asked Michele what she likes and she told me her favorite group is the Barenaked Ladies. She made me blush! (repeating in my head....the Barenaked Ladies....) They might have a funny name but their music is pretty good.

Once I was finished listening to the Ipod, Honey Bear asked if we wanted to hear his favorite song. Michele let us sit around the lap top so we could all hear it.....

"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."

We loved it! It's called "Teddy bear Picnic." I asked if I could have a copy of the song. Michele said that she would burn it to a CD and send it to my mom. I can't stop singing it!

This evening Michele was making friendship bracelets and we (Nicki Bear, Honey Bear and me) asked if we could help her. She gave us some thread and showed us how to do it. We were excited to try something new.....As you can see things didn't go very well. Instead we got all tangled up. Michele was laughing and telling us how cute we look. She says that she will make us bracelets or necklaces before we leave. Thank goodness!

After we were done making bracelets we decided to play games on  Michele's gameboy. Honey Bear is a game hog! He said that we could watch him play. Michele had to take the game away. She said that we can play again when Honey Bear isn't around.

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.

Rome, NY , USA - 16th February 2008

By: Michele_one_L

Since today was Saturday we were able to leave the house. Michele and Daryl had to run some errands and said that we could come along. We waited on the sidewalk in front of Michele's house because Daryl was getting the Jeep. As you can see everything is snowy. While we waited we asked if we could make a snowbear (like a snowman but instead a bear like us) in the snow. We got started but it was too cold on our paws, plus Daryl was ready with the Jeep. We started our drive to place #1 (the post office) but half way there Daryl realized that he forgot something so we had to go back to the house. So here we are in the Jeep waiting for Daryl to run in the house and get what he forgot.

Utica, NY, USA - 16th February 2008

By: Michele_one_L

We had a very busy day today! First we went to the post office so Michele could pick up the mail. We stayed in the car and listened to some music with her husband. After that we headed to Utica, NY which is about 30 minutes from Rome. We went to the Pet Supply place to pick up some treats for Riley (Michele's dog). It smelled funny in that store. We didn't get out of Michele's bag for fear that something might happen to us. Next we went to Target, it was a nice store but very busy. After Target we were all hungry for lunch. We couldn't decide where we wanted to go until we saw a Panera Bread. Nicki Bear said that she has eaten there before and that it was very yummy. We all agreed thats where we should go. It was SO busy! The lady taking our order told us that we might not find a place to sit. Luckily Michele found a place to eat but the table was dirty. She said that it would be best if we stay in the bag until we left.

Fort Stanwix Rome, NY , USA - 16th February 2008

By: Michele_one_L

After we had lunch we headed back to Rome. Michele said that she had some place special to take us. It's called the Fort Stanwix National Monument. Since there was so much snow we were unable to go up to or in the fort. Neither Michele or her husband knew much about the monument so we all went into the visitors center to learn more. You can visit this website to learn more about the monument. Fort Stanwix Monument

Fort Stanwix Rome, NY , USA - 16th February 2008

By: Michele_one_L

Once in the visitors center we learned that;

Known as "the fort that never surrendered," Fort Stanwix, under the command of Col. Peter Gansevoort, successfully repelled a prolonged siege, in August 1777, by British, German, Loyalist, Canadian and American Indian troops and warriors commanded British Gen. Barry St. Leger. The failed siege combined with the battles at Oriskany, Bennington, and Saratoga thwarted a coordinated effort by the British in 1777, under the leadership of Gen. John Burgoyne, to take the northern colonies, and led to American alliances with France and the Netherlands. Troops from Fort Stanwix also participated in the 1779 Clinton-Sullivan Campaign and protected America's northwest frontier from British campaigns until finally abandoned in 1781.

It was very interesting to see all of the artifacts that were found when they started digging to build the monument. We could have spent hours there. After looking at the artifacts and such we went to the gift shop. We picked up a couple things to remember our trip. Michele said that she will send them home in a few days.

Our last stop for the day was the grocery store. We were all so tired after running all those errands today. Michele said that we had been out for almost 4 hours. She said that since we were so tired we could just relax in her bag until we got home. Thank goodness!

This morning my TV friend Piggy left with Michele's husband. They are going to Lima, Peru on a business trip. Piggy was nervous to be going so far from home, but we told that we are all far away from too and that you will get used to it. We posed for one last picture then he was off to the airport.

Goodbye Piggy! Have a safe trip!

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 my sister Nicki Bear left for BunTraveler's house. I was very sad to see her ago. We had only known each other for a short amount of time. We promised to see each other again soon. Michele asked if I wanted to have one last picture taken with Nicki but I was too sad.

Good Luck Nicki! I will miss you!

Last night we got to see something rather amazing! I still can't believe what it was. During the day Michele 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 Michele 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 Michele said that she would try and take pictures for us. They are a little hard to see but it really cool.

Last night we were bored, so Michele asked if we wanted to read some books. Angus told her that we are still learning to read and speak English and that I don't know if we could read the books. She said that it was okay if we couldn't read English as these books had great pictures in them. She brought back 3 books from her spare room. Humm....they had interesting covers. We each picked a book that we wanted to read.
