Oh dear. Papa Bear forgot to buy the extension cord. It will have to wait until the weekend now. Leslie is getting anxious to see some decorations on the tree; meanwhile the cat is wondering if any of them will be on the bottom branches where she can "enjoy" them.
The card tonight is from Great Uncle Josť, a Spectacled Bear living in Argentina. He is a rather distinguished scholar of literature; his special interest is the work of Umbearto Eco. His all-time favorite book is Eco's "How to Travel with a Salmon."
