Bring Out Your Bears (or other toys - Meme)

Deborah at Debo Hobo dot Com tagged me for this fun, and easy Meme. This one is very flexible so anyone can do it. Just post an old photo of a bear, or other stuffed toy that you liked as a kid. If you didn't have a stuffed animal then you can substitute a doll, or some other toy. If you don't have a photo you can borrow one from the Internet like I did. Then just tell us a bit about your old toy, and tag 2 or more other people.

I use to have a black cat that had a radio inside it. I didn't care for stuffed animals, but I liked the radio. I loved dolls, and toy guns. I had so many dolls in bed with me that I barely fit in bed. ;o)

I'm going to tag mostly some writers of some new blogs I've been reading. I tag...

I Need a Martini Mom

Wonders Never Cease

Cutie Booty Cakes

Sona Says

Musings of a Wannabe Mommy


Mom Knows Everything

Posh Totty

Hahn at Home


As The Pump Turns

If anyone else wants to play, go for it!

I was tagged by DCR for this. I've been so lame/really bad lately about following up with tags and awards.

You did a great job.

Hi Drowsey Monkey,

You had a cat with a radio inside too? That was high tech at the time.

Hello, I saw your link on Momknowseverything. I'm from Rochester too!

Awake In Rochester said...

Hi Hello Mary Lou,

Fantastic! I'm glad that you saw me.

I tried to view your blog, and I had a problem. I have a very old computer and it doesn't handle pictures and such well. So it froze up on me. Could you possibly bring down the number of post to 3-5? I would really like to visit you. ;o)
