Artist's Description

Sue and Jeff are our very best friends. And while some people are dog people and some are cat people, Sue and Jeff are bear people. They even have a sign on their fridge that says “Don’t Feed the Bears!” Of course, people do feed them anyway. Thank God.

So it wasn’t surprising that as we were visiting them in their new home in Kent, UK for their house warming party, the conversation eventually turned to bears. That was after my 7th bottle of imported Belgian beer which I think they brew stronger for export… Anyway, I knew that Sue had an amazing collection of bears, some dating back to before I was born (well, at least one of ‘em), so I thought, “Jeeze, wouldn’t it be cool to round them all up for a group picture!” And Sue said, “Well now that you mention it, two of them just got married (NOT of the same parents like Tassie Devils have been known to be…) so it would def be fitting to mark the occasion with a family photo!”.

Well, that was all the encouragement I needed. So here’s the final picture… taken the next morning which is why it’s sharp…

That’s the happy couple in the center. And what an amazing mixture this family is…
The koala is actually 70 years old, and the guy sitting next to him who looks kind of stiff (oops!) is 50. Hey, the old bastard’s younger than ME!!
One of them snores (as do both Sue & Jeff)…
One comes from Harrods but doesn’t have two pennies to rub together…
One coaches an all bear team of… jeeze, I dunno what they play… will ask Sue tomorrow…
One of them has “issues” about whether or not he’s the father of the little guy in the front…
Two of them spit, and three of them say very naughty things to girls.
Oh, and the cute guy ayt the top with the eye patch works for the BBC!!

So there you have it. The most amazing bear family, possibly in the world. And they are all Sue’s. Bless her.

I’m off to bed now. Seems I snore a bit myself…
