I’ve been trying to get a photograph of this for ages …..

……. and only by indulging in what can only be described as ‘Solitaire Twister’ I have finally managed it. It’s a tad out of focus but that’s probably just as well.

The true artist will go to any lengths to achieve the desired effect with no regard to personal discomfort …….. a harsh fact for some to swallow.

I am now going to attempt a front view ….. I hope you won’t be disappointed if I fail.

Dear Avid Readers, DON’T think about it (btw – is that a spot?) – dive into these instead.  Lo,TG Ed

Winnie-the-Pooh, commonly shortened to Pooh Bear and once referred to as Edward Bear, is a fictional bear created by A. A. Milne. The first collection of stories about the character was the book Winnie-the-Pooh (1926), and this was followed by The House at Pooh Corner (1928). Milne also included a poem about the bear in the children’s verse book When We Were Very Young (1924) and many more in Now We Are Six (1927). All four volumes were illustrated by E. H. Shepard.
