    Default Chez Jouets is Now Opened for the Under Served!

    Cafes for Men? Cafes for Women?

    Enough is enough! No one ever thinks about places to eat for the under served!

    So, I've jumped onto Mommy's keyboard to ask all other toys to come in and enjoy some teddy-home cooking.

    11 Nov.jpg

    My name is Spaulding. I'm the tall handsome one in the photo. The little guy, (What little? I'm really big! You should see our little brother Phil if you want to see little. ::::and Mommy instantly steps in before Phil joins the argument:::, is my brother Teddy. We've put on our chef's hats to serve you an assortment of yummies. Just know we get to eat the hotdogs.

    So, please, toys unite! All toys! Not just stuffed animals. (Although, of course, stuffies are the bestest!) It's time to come out of the closet, off the dusty shelves, and away from our hotdogs to spend some time getting to know each other while these Menz and Womenz have their own cafes. We are the under served! So pull up a table and feel free to tell us about yourselves.

    And, until you are brave enough to do that, don't mind us, as we sit in the chez, (which is cafe in French, wee?) with our newspaper and soda (where is our coffee, Mommy), waiting for you.

    Phil is the cute one in front of the other two.

    (Sorry, but Phil had something he wanted to get off his chest, before I let Spaulding post this. BTW, I'm "Mommy." aka Lynn aka Depleted. And I approve this message. )

    My name is Felicity. How do you do? Is this a Teddy Bear picnic? I am very fond of tea parties and picnics. This establishment seems very fancy, with a French name, so I dressed up before visiting you.

    The tea party is out back with the Garden Gals. Everyone is invited, including the garden decorations and gnomes.

    But don't expect them to sit for long. They really like to explore. We hope you do too.

    And harvesting is involved.

    And they aren't happy without bringing in a bouquet.

    Also, if you have a fellow, we could use a hand (or paw.) They like to put us to work if we go out there.

    Wee wee! See? I'm good at French! Parley fool Frappuchino?

    You have no toys at all?

    This is one of our favorite toys!

    You don't even have an
    Etch-a-sketch.jpg

    How can someone live without an etch-a-sketch?

    I'll tell you the worst Christmas present we ever got, if you tell me your favorite toy.

    OK,

    just want to be 'loving and polite - Lynn has a very strange side of herself who speaks to others
    from others, and we 'get it', but, don't allow her to lure you into something that you don't want
    to get into...Lynn is more than clever, not to mention quite the writer and artist!!!
    actually, we, hub and I, think she is amazing..., but then, we have her numbers...

    The garden party is charming, thank you so much for having me. I should dearly love to take a stroll and explore. I brought my parasol to keep my porcelain skin safe from the sun. I DO have a brother, his name is Geoffrey, and I am so happy you invited him as well. I will have to take a picture of him to show you. He is very helpful at tea parties. The poor dear is the only brother amongst so many sisters, he has always been a gentleman and helped with the heavy lifting of tea trays.

    I must say, you are a jolly set and seem to have so much fun. In my salad days, there were tea parties and dances every day! Not to mention going to school and visiting my sisters.

    Someone is hiding their toys.

    You're just afraid to admit your tractor/mower is a toy. lol

    (I honestly think everyone has toys, but when we grow up the toys get more functional. One of my friends just got a new microwave. I know it's a toy. When I first met hubby, his toy was a Torino. Now his toys are non-stick pans, cameras, and a laptop. He lets me play with his toys. He just doesn't play with my toys -- the stuffed animals -- as much. lol)

    You have salad days? Good! Does that mean you don't like hotdogs?

    And your sisters were in school? We'd go to school, but not on snow days. AND, it snows somewhere every day.

    We like dancing too. We're as good at dancing as we are at speaking French!

    I'll tell you the worst Christmas present we ever got, if you tell me your favorite toy.

    meet my dad, the original minimalist.

    dad was happiest throwing stuff out. by the time i was 18, there were no toys left in the house (he donated them all to families with small kids). my youngest sister was only 11 at the time.
    and the books! mom joined a kids' book of the month club in '57 when my older sister was born. we had all the classics, Dr. Seuss, books were mom's favorite thing to give or receive. dad gave them all to the library. gah!

    my favorite toy might not be classified as a toy? it was the swingset. so many hours on it with my sisters and neighborhood kids, and boy did we sing!
    Mark has made me a tree swing, which i still use almost every day. he calls it my prayer swing. what's better than a swingset? a tree swing!!

    now. dish! lol

    ps-- your French is way cooler than mine.

    Your dad and Mom's dad sound like they went to the same school, which just proves schooling is dangerous! Avoid schooling!

    The only toys Mom has left from her childhood were antiques, (because PopPop knew better than to throw out antiques), or the toy he gave her when it was a promotional giveaway at the oil company he worked for. (She took him to college, so he was saved from the big toss-out of '74.)

    Meet Axlerod.
    Snowworld3 4.jpg

    He's having his 13th anniversary of his 39th birthday in August. (He didn't want to get older than 39, so he only celebrates anniversaries of his birthday now.) He likes wearing lampshades when he have parties, and likes hanging out with his grandkids. (Teddy, Phil, and I all have wives and kids, but this photo was taken before Phil was adopted.) And next to him is his buddy Pez.

    He's the only one of us who was around when Mommy was young. (He's the only proof we have that Mommy was ever young. )

    We like swings too, but Mommy and Daddy never made us a swing. So we swing at the local park.
    climbingaround2 42.jpg

    Or we just swing on whatever we can find.
    breaktime.jpg

    (Spaulding peeks around to see what his brothers are doing. Since they aren't paying attention, he smirks.)



    And this is the present we never wanted.
    OurChristmasStocking.jpg

    Oh! We like our stocking, so that's not it.

    (Mommy is chuckling. I think he means Phil.)

    sure looks like part of one, no wonder those guys have
    so much fun...

    Do you mean the rain gauge set in a ceramic tulip and forever guarded by the Turtle? lol

    Funny, because the rain gauge/glass broke so long ago, I completely forgot what his purpose was. I keep him as the family pet for the bears-in-chairs family.

    Also, funny because I do own "a bong" now. Well, it's a hookah pipe my grandfather brought back from Germany, (I think from the Black Forrest, but no proof of that), after WWI, and out of all the things I could have collected from Dad's house when he was placed in assisted-living, I wanted that. It was a part of PopPop, a part of Dad, and funny because neither one of them ever knew it could have been used for pot. lol

    I admit to being nuts. I really have been taking tons of photos of my stuffed animals for years. I had a blog of their stories, until I took off on the "stories" part and started writing my novel. I really have taken their pictures in a cafe off Rittenhouse Square, (and in the park itself in Center City Philadelphia), have taken then to our local playground for photos, have photos from there visits to FDR Park, have photos of them on our vacations, (that's how this started -- better to have pictures of two teddy bears than a frumpy middle-aged couple), and tons of pictures in our little garden and in our house. So it doesn't get any nuttier than that. But I'm not crazy... no matter what Spaulding says. lol
