"What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?"

"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."

"Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit.

"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt."

"Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked, "or bit by bit?"

"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."

Aren’t they the sweetest teddy bear graphics! I like to use them because of Wind in the Willows, you aren’t real till you’re shabby. Too sweet.

How precious that story is, L. J. I may have to pass that on to some friends! Those who will appreciate it! And those who are ‘real’.

Before you forward it you might want to read the whold story. There will be tears at the end but they're acceptable because they are happy ones.

Well, I’m back again for a few minutes. Want to thank y’all for your good wishes.

I re-injured my back doing some yard work. It also seems to be effecting the sciatica (sp?) so I’m limping around with the aid of my trusty cane, but even that doesn’t help when my leg collapses. Took one fall onto the edge of a brick in the garden which dictated a trip to the ER for some sutures in my knee.

Again, thanks for the get well wishes.
