“Polar Bear Grocery Shops”


Description from Smoky Rose: Woke up this morning, another chilly morning in my neck of the woods - so, you guessed it... Polar Bear's here, and standing on the patio, looking in the kitchen window at me... I invite him in for a cup of fresh coffee. No problem, Polar Bear, I said - you can spend the day - but I need you to do some grocery shopping. After all, the amount of food this being consumes - wow, and I thought I was bad! So, cash and list in paw, out the door he goes. He has strict instructios, fruits & veggies, milk & eggs, no nonsense products! What does he return with?... Shrimp, shrimp, and more shrimp....... anybody need any shrimp? anybody need a Polar Bear?

    Did Polar Bear wash his paws before he had coffee and went shopping. If he didn’t he really should be made to stand in the corner until he appolagises (sp?). Did he get the milk & eggs at least? He is such a naughty bear. :)

    He brought home NOTHING but shrimp, tons of it – and he had a tude, rather than remorse, because my local grocery store does not carry seal. uh, yeah, NO! – no seal!….. I’m not thrilled. I’m going to ask him to scrub and wax the kitchen floor later on today…. least he could do after I just bought him $60.00 worth of shrimp….

    Thank you sooo much, girls. My adorable little niece has heard the stories – I’ve had this Polar Bear visiting for years now – and the poor little angel is afraid to visit. She is now getting to the age where I can tell her I was fibbing or something…. I don’t know what to tell her now. we shouldn’t fib…. eh, painted myself in that corner.

    Smoky, I agree with Chicky Kat and Smart Chick!!
    You should write and publish these stories!! They are absolutely wonderful!!
    You have a gift. I hope you use it.

    Think about it.

    As creative as you are, you can come up with a good story to introduce your niece to that Polar Bear. I know you can!

    Beautiful Pick! You should tell your neice that you have been using your imagination, and he really does exist there- but she’ll have to close her eyes & pretend to see him :)

    PB – What? No Klondike Bars? No Eskimo Pies? Just Shrimp? That was very ‘shellfish’ of you!! HEHE…

    Smoky, PB needs a lesson in being a good houseguest! Oh well, bears will be bears, won’t they! Does he drink a lot of Coca-Cola, or is that just during the holidays? I guess we can excuse him – he has a long trip home very shortly!

    And once again PB inspires a beautiful pick with my favorite color – orange!

    Smoky Rose, I love your picks and your stories about Polar Bear! The first one I saw was when he mowed yesterday, & was wondering if this “Polar Bear” might be human? Now I get it, which makes it WAY better!

    I like Bubbly Chick’s explanation to your niece. Truthful, but keeps the story alive, which is the best. You have a great imagination, and really should keep these in written form somewhere. There IS a book or several in these stories!!!
