The wind has been terrible in Texas..along with the cold..I’m with d’Ogee..I’d run back in, too..
I finally let my eldest kitty into the garage..I have the timer set so I won’t forget her..The kitties love to climb on my car and look out the glass in the door. I haven’t wanted to even open the kitchen door to the garage to let them play..

This will be longest frigid spell I can recall.

I love all the teddy bears!

I did a few personalized ones a couple of years ago and have been working on a few others. It's almost dinner time here, and will post the ones I have so far. I'd love to use Dave's and Luv's with their names on them, and have a few others to post later (maybe tomorrow!) Here goes.....

For those of us having to live with pain. I have also been living with daily pain for 2yrs. from back surgery. I’m bringing this up now, as I’ve finally found a good amount of relief. I would like to share it with you, so perhaps it could help you all. I take a pill called Gabapentin 300mg once a day for nerve damage. I ALSO have been going to water therapy, twice a week for almost 6 weeks. The pool is heated and is salt water, with some chlorine. The therapist gives you exercise’s they feel good for you.
It is really helping alot. One day I went to the dentist. I pushed the elevator button-nothing! I went, Oh S ! I’m going to have to walk the stairs. Mind you, it was only to the second floor, but best guess, there were about 50 steps, if not more AND I did it with NO pain. I couldn’t walk up stairs for over two years, at least. I can’t tell you how excited I was and still am that I’ve some relief. My doctor said when ordering water therapy that it cannot hurt. And it doesn’t!! Look at it like a another possible option to look into. I would be thrilled if this could help ALL! God Bless!!

Thanks for the info. I was prescribed Gabapentin prior to surgery to deal with the nerve pain in my leg.

Having to wait for year for surgery, damage was done, and I’m still limping with a weakened R leg. GRRRRR

So glad you have found such relief!

For those not in pain, water aerobics are wonderful for...well...just because! Less pressure on the joints and feels so good! Any exercise you do on land, you can do in water. I did them for about 5 years and it was well worth it!

I'm so sorry! I've sometimes said to people regarding my back, that at least I'm still here to talk about it! That's a good thing! :)

Your Opening Post was Wonderful, and I didn't Know about Teddy Roosevelt and the Cub.
I Loved Reading about it.

"Less pressure on the joints"
It's wonderful! I've been slowly getting a bit stronger, too! I have 10 screws, 2 rods and 2 cadaver bones in my back from surgery. I will always have some pain there, but I use a cane. But the pain in my legs was almost unbearable and these water classes have helped so much! I'm glad you found it worthwhile, as well!

I love all your Teddy Bear posts today and loved all the Teddies that everyone posted. I was looking for the one of a lot of us sorta like a Follies of Teddy Bears that you made, Billie. I know I have it but haven't located it yet. I love Teddy Bear's so much and hate I missed this day. My granddaughter gives me a Teddy Bear every Christmas with my gift. This Christmas just past she gave me a Tennessee Vols Cheerleader and it is the cutest thing in its little orange and white outfit. One day I will snap a picture of it and post it. If I left a name off above, please know it was an error!

I cannot live without a timer! I have one shaped like an egg and it is the best one I’ve ever had. Bought it a Radio Shack before my hubby passed away and that is almost 7 years ago and it has never had a new battery! Its amazing! If it stopped tomorrow, I would immediately run to get another timer!

I think that more than half of us would say that they are a “Polar bear”.

Do they make Polar teddy bears? LOL.

Loved your beautiful opening today, Billie! Loved hearing E. sing his Teddy Bear song. I had a doctor’s appointment, plus a bunch of other stuff and just have been tied up most of the afternoon and evening.

Thank you!

I bet it WAS Goose bumps, Mary Lou! The video I posted almost gave me goose bumps thinking of such a happening so many years ago and how smooth it was all handled.
