This is... My most treasured childhood possesion


When I was 6, my sisters and I were taken to a toy store in England and told we could choose whatever we wanted. This is it. He is lovely painted porcelain and when you wind him up he turns around to a tinkling tune.

I also have a very gorgeous stuffed Winnie-the-pooh which I love, but, the kids are allowed to play with him, so I guess he is a little less precious.

Which also reminds me of my favourite all time joke... ready ...

Q. What do Winnie-the-Pooh and Jack-the-Ripper have in common?

This is part of Angela's "This is" meme, of which I contribute very badly, but this week on time (nearly)

A. The same middle name! (tee hee)

It is gorgeous,and your joke is funny.I would tell it to the children I babysit but don't want to hear:Dees,what is a ripper....LOL!thanks for sharing!

Oh yeah, you probably guessed the joke doesn't really work with small children. They don't really get the amazing juxtaposition of their soft adorable stuffed friend and J-the-R who is also a little stuffed in the head but is also inexplicably unspeakable....
