    How long will Mike need to sleep with “Teddy”?

    Lots of adults still sleep with teddies…Mike will give his up when he feels secure enough in himself to do so.

    I used to have a cat that insisted on sleeping on a cabinet next to me. Except for when she had decided that I’d been asleep long enough and would wake me, it was cute. Another cat thought that sleeping on me was the right place. I’d have to get up and the cat would let out a sleepy disappointed-sounding meow, like he was saying “aw… I’m comfy. Do I have to get up?”

    Sounds like story fodder for the future writer!

    It gave me some ideas. I do some writing when I’m not at my full time job that I need to pay the bills.

    There’s a quote that Kay Scarpetta said about its not the dead that frighten me, they can’t hurt you. It’s the living that do.

    I can’t remember it verbatim.

    Sure, blame it on Mom… Just tell her that you’re sleeping at each other’s houses and she’ll never know. ;-)

    I guess they did a shuffle or turned around because they’re in a different order in the last panel.

    “Whimps”, TJ. One of our national sports is hockey and the other one is even more violent. :)

    I wish my wife would sleep with a Teddy instead of those old flannel PJs.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    After reading Tom Sawyer, I was convinced that spooks really did come out at night. My dad was no help; he loved to tell ghost stories. The Brothers Grimm book was a favourite of my grandfather’s. Between the two of them, my brother and I were reluctant to go out in the dark until the year that my grandma gave us flashlights for Christmas. We used these to expel ghosts from corners, creeps from closets, and bugs from the bed sheet, until the batteries ran out!

    When my Dad was adopted in 1917, he came home with teddy. later when he was a teenager, he slept in a room with out heat. he used to put the teddy on the radiator during the day, and then take it to bed with him to keep him warm. We found his teddy in the attic in the 1970s. We still have it

    Maybe Gordon did sneak out. As I recall his hair did fall out.

    As noted in the The Crow, a cemetery is the safest place in the world because everybody’s dead.
