GB Visits the Big Apple

No, it's not what you're thinking - this is the other Big Apple - in Berwick, Canada. Berwick (not pronounced Bear-wick as any logical person would presume) lies in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley and is the province's self-acclaimed Apple Capital. Broadway may have glamour and glitz but Berwick has:

* The Apple Capital Museum
* The Apple Blossom Festival

* The Apple Blossom Princess
* The Apple Blossom Princess Wardrobe Tea
* The Old-Time Apple Festival, and of course,
* The Big Apple (as pictured to the left with me).

Kathryn Elizabeth Cleveland - Queen Annapolisa LXXV - the Apple Blossom Princess to the right. She declined to have her photo taken with me - or so her bodyguards told me - but isn't she a hottie?

My minimalist chic grey flannel fur looks particularly stunning against the crimson red of the Big Apple, don't you think? And my brown eyes pick up the brown in the apple's stem too.

But I digress.

Anyway, I could go on and on about Berwick and how it deserves the moniker Big Apple far more than New York but, really, that would just be comparing apples to oranges.

Who Exactly is Grey Bear?

Grey Bear is a grey flannel bear who once worked as a model for fashion designer Alfred Sung's Club Monaco stores. Not wishing to be seen as just a pretty face, Grey Bear allowed himself to be sold as a charity bear during the 1998 Christmas season and was subsequently taken under the wings of his present bipedal attendants, a couple of irresponsible financially-retarded ne'er do wells.

Fortunately for Grey Bear, these non-ursine/bipedal attendants take him everywhere they travel. He is well on his way to becoming a globe-trotting grey bear.
