Royal Mail

No, nothing from Empress Kukka-Maria, Princess Mia Bella or Musette, Empress of the Universe, but from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II postal service. So something from the United Kingdom, specifically from by fellow Gorgeous Ginger, Fat Eric.

Fat Eric had alerted me to watch the post for a little package and we have been checking the box outside every day and it finally arrived.
So I checked out the package and could smell Mandy and a new kittie scent, which must be Eric. Mum helped me open the package and pulled out a cute little bear, dressed in a furry funny suit. Mum readed the card and they had sent me a Beefeater. Well mum says officially they are called Yeoman Warders. They are special people who guard Her Majesty's fancy jewels at The Tower of London.

But what is fun is that mum has a slightly bigger version of a teddy Yeoman Warder as well. She bought hers at the Tower of London itself last time she was there. Her bear is a small version of a really huge bear dressed up as a Yeoman Warder. See below for picture.
So a big THANK YOU to Fat Eric and his mum for this. Now I have a small collection of bears myself. Not nearly as many as mum, but special none the less.
From left to right, Tex, Eric and Ethan.

Your bears are so furry cute! I know you put the stinky rub on the new beefeater bear. All the bears look happy together.
