Maybe I’m just a touch tired, maybe a bit depressed. Not sure, but have felt a kind of lingering melancholy rolling around lately. Maybe it had something to do with my birthday, maybe its just the weather. I know I shouldn’t bitch. If the high is 50 degrees I should be lucky. My friend, Butch is forced to endure highs of ZERO in Wyoming. And I should be thankful to have had at least a 40th birthday. Some of my friends didn’t make it that far. To be truthful, I feel its just the season. I’m not a winter guy. Dude, 70 is when I put a coat on. I’m a definite super high humidity, swampy, muggy, marshy, buggy, 100 degrees sort of guy.
Anyhow, I pulled out one of my old designs because he inspires me. He makes me feel better. He was the first one I ever did, if you’ll remember. He was the design that saved me from homelessness. He was the bear that saved me from fully breaking down. He was the bear that gave me not only a new career, and pocket money for food….but, he gave me a career. So, whenever I work him up, I am always reminded of those moments when he was first born, when he was first sold, and how fortunate I was that he came into my life.

I’ll be fine….I’m just…..in a mood.
