So I bought another Pooh bear on eBay (yes... I know this is surprising...) and just for the heck of it I clicked on the "See other items" link to see if the seller had any other Pooh items.... well, after a message back and forth or two I found out the seller is also a "Pooh Freak" and has 3,000+ she is selling to help fund an upcoming wedding.
I found a new BFF!!!! So we have been trading emails and she is sending me photos so I can identify the ones I don't have that I might want to buy. And, as surprising as this might be..... even though I have 8,500+ she has over 100 so far I don't have.
I see a trip to Pennsylvania in my future VERY soon. "Pooh, back up the truck -- we're leaving the 100 Acre Woods for an Exposition!!"
