Rain Rain Rain

The rain rain rain came down down down

In rushing, rising riv’lets…

Do you remember that from Winnie the Pooh? I’ve always like Pooh bear. He’s just so sweet and innocent and tubby. How can you NOT like him? Anyhoo, so check this: the pond overflowed onto our driveway! Guess we’ll be staying home today~! ;-D

To say that the ducks were ECSTATIC with all this rain would be QUITE the understatement! Love you, quacks!

And I heart this green stuff, too:

Now that all that rain has passed, it’s shaping up to be a totally gorgeous day! Everyone – have a great ‘un!

  1. That whole gender thing was messed up with the story’s author, though, wasn’t it? Remember how Christopher Robin was dressed like a little girl in the very beginning?

  2. I don’t know about all that, but Pooh is actually based on a teddy bear that the author’s son had. It was a great black bear doll that was made after a female black bear at some zoo in their hometown Winnipeg. Now as far as the name Winnefred, I heard that on the radio, but yeah, I think Pooh started as a girl…it’s just evolved into being a little boy bear.

  3. I am such a dork, but lookie at this ‘citing info I found on it:

    “Milne is most famous for his two Pooh books about a boy named Christopher Robin after his son, and various characters inspired by his son’s stuffed animals, most notably the bear named Winnie-the-Pooh. Christopher Robin Milne’s stuffed bear, originally named “Edward”, was renamed “Winnie-the-Pooh” after a Canadian black bear named Winnie (after Winnipeg), which was used as a military mascot in World War I, and left to London Zoo during the war. “The pooh” comes from a swan called “Pooh”. E. H. Shepard illustrated the original Pooh books, using his own son’s teddy, Growler (“a magnificent bear”), as the model. Christopher Robin Milne’s own toys are now under glass in New York.
    Winnie-the-Pooh was published in 1926, followed by The House at Pooh Corner in 1928. A second collection of nursery rhymes, Now We Are Six, was published in 1927. All three books were illustrated by E. H. Shepard. Milne also published four plays in this period. He also “gallantly stepped forward” to contribute a quarter of the costs of dramatising P. G. Wodehouse’s A Damsel in Distress.”


    Ah, the fantastical things one can learn here on the blog! ;-D
