The college football regular season is over and our Ohio State Buckeyes came through it almost as well as we’d hoped. For a few years, Bucky Bear was the mascot in our house – here, he’s guarding the front window and a music box my husband gave me many years ago. Alas, Bucky left us last year – given to the two-year-old daughter of friends who are even bigger OSU fans than we are.

    Aw! Cute! I want this guy! And I love that phonograph. Great shot!

  • Thanks, Nadya! Still have the music box – plays “It’s a Small World.” Miss the bear!

    Aw, how nostalgic for you! Love the music box and the song is playing in my head right now, after all…..

  • Do miss the fuzzy bear, but he got a great home with a little girl I’m sure was happy to have him.
