Hello ! I am Teddy “Ince” Bear.
I play football and as you can guess, my hero is Tom Ince, the best midfielder in the world !
He belongs to a very, very good team : the Derby County FC.
You know what ? If I keep to be a good son (and a good pupil…) my father promised to get a complete supporter kit, just for me !
I love you, dad ! And Up the Rams !
PS: Miki de Goodaboom and her Teddy bear Truffle McFurry want to dedicate that post to their favourite football team, Derby County FC. Today is the last game of the season 2016/2017, The Rams have not performed as well as we would have wished, but our love is unconditional, we will always support them! UP THE RAMS indeed, Teddy Ince and Jo Du Nor!

Hello ! I am Jo “The Champ’ Skier” Teddy.
You know it has snow a lot in French Alps, so yesterday I decided to go to ski.
It was cold but I made a descent of so fast ski as I lost my woollen cap !
If you found it, give it back to me and I will invite you to share a friendly cup of hot chocolate.
See you !
Hallo Champ, here is Miki. I have found your cap, but it is too high up for me to get it, I am too small. Can you spot it on the painting? I hope Jo can get it for you, h is tall!
But even if I can’t get it, I have found it. So, I think I still have earned a friendly cup of hot chocolate, haven’t I?

My Mom and me are very busy writing and painting our two books, it is a huge work! I think it will take ages until we are finished.
One of the books is about our Tour de Yorkshire with our reporter Ann La Mar. I am not allowed to tell you many details, but I can show you the images of the book which have to do with the Teddy Bears or other furry creatures we met.
But today, it is just about me and me. Ann la Mar loves me very much, and has me on her screen on her new iPhone. Miki sent her the photo of me posing as a professional footballer for the Europa Championship, some months ago. She loved it so much that she is looking at it all the time on her phone.
On the painting, I am sitting in a lovely Cafe in Whitby, on the English coast, with Ann La Mar’s phone. More about it in the book.
Take care, love you all

I can’t tell much about this motif, except that a certain “Pete”, from the UK, sent me a photograph of his Teddy bear, dressed as a basketball player from the Chicago Bulls.
Pete only told me that he is a fan of the Chicago Bulls, of Michael Jordan and that he is somehow related to one of the players from an earlier time.
I personally don’t know much about basketball, but I do know from the legendary Michael Jordan, of course, and that one of his nickname was “His Airness”. Which is why I allowed myself that wordplay and called Pete’s Teddy Bear “His Bearness”! 🙂
