Great day at Apedale – nice sunny day and lots of nice sunny visitors with various toy animals in tow. Perhaps the greatest crowd of visitors since the May gala. Amongst many toy animals, we’ve seen donkeys, bunny rabbits, minions, indeterminate pink creatures and a ring-tailed lemur. It would appear that the actual Teddy Bear is, sadly, a minority, possibly even a threatened, species these days. Hopefully you’ll prove us wrong by turning in droves tomorrow at Apedale with Bears. We’re running from 1130 – 4pm. Don’t worry, though, we’re very broad minded; virtually any soft toy will count. We might draw the line at car-insurance related Meerkats, though.
