In the April issue of Teddy Bear Review, an article was printed concerning the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic and Steiff's creation of mourning bears. Death, doom, destruction and Teddy bears! Yippy! I was so in my element reading this article, it transformed me from a "who cares?" to a "wow, this is cool!"! Ah, the power of the written word!
A Steiff Polar Bear (1990s issue?), an unknown well-loved cat and my own Midsummer mohair black bear are enjoying the attention.
