New friend and new modes of transportation?

I met a new bear today. He is a big bear.  I asked him what his name was and he just stared at me blankly. I guess I will call him big bear. 
I was getting restless sitting around the house. I invited big bear to go adventuring with me but he just wanted to hang out on the couch. I decided to do some exploring today with my roommates.  Is that a ferry I see?  Maybe I can convince my roommates to take me for a ride on the boat. 
No luck, the ferry was unborarding, not loading.
 Maybe I can catch a ride on the train. It's either heading North to Canada (maybe I can catch the train and visit Sandy) or to points East (that way I can visit Jerry, Ben and Ajdin).  

Drat, the train did not stop for me (even after I waved politely).   I guess my method of transportation today will only involve my roommates carrying me around. 


  1. Oh, I don't know that you would want to come up north today! We are getting another 6" of snow on top of the foot we already have. And it is the wet and sloppy stuff too which is supposed to turn to rain tomorrow. Ewww! But you gave it a good shot... could you not... borrow... the car and head out?

  2. Wow, that is a lot of snow! I would take the car but I am not a great driver to begin with and then add a couple of feet of snow would be a recipe for disaster.

  3. Oh, we love trains! We'd love to have a miniature train set to play with, but they take a lot of space. We sometimes here the choo choo of a freight train in the middle of the night. Oh, and Big Bear will tell you his just have to offer some honey to him first. Honey, and hugs, are a way to a bear's heart...salmon and hot chocolate don't hurt either.

    1. A model train set would be beary cool. Thanks for tip on the honey, salmon, and hot chocolate. One of those items (or all) will probably loosen him up and then he might tell me his name.

  5. Oh stuffie names... they are a sensitive subject. You have to beary patient with Big Bear and let him reveal his name in his own good time.
