tea for three

i went on a bit of a jaunt today - not one of my usual, globe-hopping adventures, but something a bit more sedate: brian and david were given a christmas present of a tour of london's theatreland which they just got round to going on... the talky stuff (by a nice young, knowledgeable man called paul) was very informative - though i could have done with a bit more about theatrical rabbits - and it ended up with a rather spiffing tea at the savoy hotel... posh or what?!


as you can see, i tucked in best i could (the other two gobbled most of it!) and then gave the patrons a little entertainment on the very piano which a famous american called gershwin used to play when he went to the savoy...

naturally, I played a selection of my own that included 'run rabbit run', 'funny little bunnies' and 'bright eyes' and finished off with a few bars of jefferson airplane's 'white rabbit'


yes, i know i look as if i'm facing the wrong way, but this was when i turned round to acknowledge the thunderous applause!

Dear Buttons,
Thanks for your message. Unfortunately, I'm a bit old for travelling and high jinx these days, as I'm literally falling apart at the seams! But I'll follow your adventures on your blog!
And yes I am a well loved bear, although I did get a bit of rough treatment in my younger days, like getting thrown across rooms...!

How beautiful and fun. It makes me hungry for fancy little cakes.

yes, me too! trouble was the other two gannets ate almost everything... and that last word (everything) would be in huge, large, big CAPITALS if i did capitals, which i don't, on account of the difficulty in working the shift-key... oh, i just did! :-)
