Now I am Three!

I'm not really three - I'm actually 11 going on 12 but my daily regime of moisturizer and sunblock just knocks the years off of me ... anyway, today is the 3rd anniversary of Grey Bear-ology! I know that I've been eerily silent for the past few months but I have only my female bipedal to blame and my inability to just fire her (bears are such softies - especially Freelance Goodwill Ambassador bears). In fact, she hasn't written one lousy teeny blog since we came to Iraq (I'm in Iraq everyone!). To be fair, there have been a number of extenuating circumstances (including the theft of my camera), so I´ve tried not to judge her too harshly (she´s a bit fragile you know), but we're finally just starting to get things back in order, and I *should* be back blogging soon.

Besides moving to a new country, we have a new member in our family and a new addition to my staff. Below you can see me and my new friend Celeste. Isn't she pretty? The only thing more attractive than simple grey flannel is the minimalist pairings of black & white. Simple and elegant: just like an Oreo cookie!

As always, thanks to everyone who follows my blog & here's to another 3 years of travelling (with my bipedals - at least with the male one!) and writing for all of you. I'm going to go have a glass of champagne now - or maybe I'll wait until Spain beats Portugal in tonight's World Cup match. As the Spanish say ¡podemos! (we can do it!)

Wow - wouldn't that make a really nifty day for all of us!!

It's so nice to hear from you again GB. I was afraid Celeste might have used you as a chew-toy. Celeste looks eerily a lot like Mr. This Cat......Is she their biological dog?

Fortunately, the only person who´s ever thought I was a toy was that awful little troll of a man who worked at the Acropolis in Athens. I´m not sure if I see a resemblance between Celeste and Mr. This Cat. After all, Mr. This Cat is awfully grey - just like me!! And she doesn´t snore.

Your new friend looks very nice. I am glad that she understands your position in the house!

Very, very happy you are back. I really missed you.Every so often remind your new friend that you are doing her a favour by letting her stay at your house. She does look very kind though.
