We Need a National Eeyore Day

Today is National Winnie- the -Pooh Day-- celebrated on A.A. Milne's birthday. Several decades ago I purchased a set of the classic books . At that time they came in a red slip case. Today you're apt to see the characters drawn in a Disney style, but the set we owned had the original illustrations.

Over the year we read and re-read the stories and bought a stuffed Pooh Bear and Eeyore. Michael, who lived next door, owned a Christopher Robin doll. Some days Christopher, Eeyore, and Pooh were called upon to reenact the latest story-- often with some modifications.

Given these uncertain times who wouldn't want to cuddle with a plush Tigger or Winnie-the-Pooh? Perhaps we need Eeyore-- the gloomy fellow.
