Thank you so much to Rick, Cindy and Bridgette for the fantastic Pooh gifts donated to my Guinness World Record. I am always so touched and taken back when people go out of their way to bring a recently found Pooh item for me. I feel so thankful and blessed that my goofy obsession with the little yellow bear has brought so many wonderful situations with people into my life.
I am always asked why I collect and why Winnie the Pooh. Why Pooh? As a kid my parents introduced me to Pooh and he reminds me of a simpler time. I guess it is a desire to have something "sweet" in my life while in a world of let's just say, not so sweet. Why I collect? Pooh, the stories and the message behind Pooh is just – simple and uncomplicated. No great psychological backstory. And, as I share my collection with people, I am finding that I am not alone and not the only Pooh fan in the world.
I love it when random people from all over the world contact me to "talk Pooh". Unlike Tigger, it is nice to know I am NOT the only one.
