I’d like to do something a bit different today. Today is a Friday, which is different from a Thursday or a Saturday or a birthday or an unbirthday, so of course things would be different to begin with. But today will be a different-in-a-meeting-new-friends-kind-o
Why don’t you say hello to our friends, Pooh?
“Hello to our friends,” said Pooh.
“Thank you Pooh,” I said.
So this is Pooh. Also known in the 100 Acre Woods (where he’s from–Pooh, that is) as Winnie-ther-Pooh–or at least that’s what Christopher Robin calls him. And Christopher Robin is usually not wrong about these sorts of things, except on every other Thursday, and sometimes when it’s his unbirthday.
“What sorts of things are we talking about?” a growly bear voice said.
“About you liking honey, for instance,” I said.
“Oh,” Pooh replied. “I thought we were. I just wanted to make sure.”
“That’s a very good thing to do,” I said.
“And well–if you don’t mind my asking–what other sorts of things do I like?”
“What about these caramel apple pie bars?” I asked, pointing at the picture you just saw. “What do you think of them?”
Well, if you'd like to find out, I don't blame you. To find out what happens to Pooh and the great caramel apple pie bar recipe, visit my blog (and Pooh, too--he loves visitors, and I'm sure he'd love to have you) and check out the recipe, stories, and photos.
