Often I cruise the net for news concerning items that fit my interest. On search concerning Men who keep stiffed animals, I found this comment:
“I sell stuffed toys for a charity, and the vast majority of buyers are people of (ahem) middle-age or older.
Last year I called a gentleman who was in his late eighties. He had been supporting the charity for many, many years and in fact had bought over thirty of our teddy bears. So I asked whether he had given the toys away to family and friends as gifts, and he laughed.
“Bugger off”, he said, “they’re MY teddies. You might think I’m a mad old codger, but nobody gets their hands on my bears until I’m six-foot under”.
So maybe you’re never too old.”
That’s going to be me when I am eighty Lord willing. Nobody going get my Hello Kitty stash until I grave yard dead. .
