“Polar Bear Washes Up”

Description from Smoky Rose: Needing to get all of the Bare Escentuals off of Polar Bear, I instruct him to get into the tub.
OK, this is easier said than done... as is everything with Polar Bear.
He is unused to bathing without the company of penguins and seals - this is issue #1 - I tell him, there's no way around this obstacle. Issue #2 is that he must have ice water... so, all the of the freezer's ice goes into a tubful of cold water... #3 he want fish scented bar soap - yeah, no, that's not happening, Polar Bear! (I am tired of Polar Bear stentch in the house, and hand him the Amazing Grace....) OK, I think we're good to go. Should have anticipated what I saw next. He dives into the tub - straight under the water. Displaced water rushes over the sides of the tub and pools on the ceramic tile floor..... Why is Nothing, but Nothing, with Polar Bear as easy as it sounds at first blush.... no, don't mention blush, that's how we got into this particular siutation.

    Mare … Mare … Mare … (deep sigh) … it really is time for Polar Bear to head north … or (sigh) … he’s going to be the house guest from h-e-double toothpicks forever. Poor, poor you … now hand Polar Bear a mop! :D ;) :D

    Gorgeous pick btw!

    Thank you, Chickie Sue! I don’t know why I feel the need to share this silliness with you all, but as long I do, so glad see responses like yours and CAS’!
    CAS – as chilly as it has been here in the mid-lantic region, Polar Bear doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime too soon :( He’s become a fixture here. I’ll tell you this much, if he stays much longer, he MUST get a job!

    Good! Mr Bear is napping – which is generally what he’s doing, when not making a mess somewhere…….. I am well, thank you – ought to stop playing and get to some work-work, but… I don’t wanna ;)

    Thank you, girls!
    Polar Bear messing with my bare escentuals has given me the excuse of shopping for new…so I guess I can’t complain too loudly

    Oh!! PB just thought it was BEAR Escentuals!! Not his fault – But no one wants a smelly ole bear in the house – But one that smells like Amazing Grace is always welcome!!

    Smoky, so glad for a PB update! And what a pretty pick to go with it!!! “)
