Enjoy Bing Crosby singing “The Teddy Bears’ Picnic” – a childhood favourite of mine!
Sebastian is a third generation Teddy Bear. He came into my life when I was five years of old on Christmas Day. Santa had already been to my parental home, but, when we arrived at the home of my paternal grandparents for Christmas dinner, I found that he had been down there chimney too, as a pillowcase was hanging from the brass rail of their kitchen range and inside was Sebastian. He lost his growl at some point when I was a teenager and has become threadbare through having so many cuddles from me, my children and now my grandchildren, but he is still the best Teddy in the world!
Captured in the home of my youngest daughter, where he now resides, with my Nikon Coolpix S6200 camera.
