Happy Birthday Paddington!

Paddington Bear turns 50 years old today!!

I adored these books as a child, and they have entertained and continue to entertain children all over the world!

Marmalade sandwiches, anyone? 😉

    Not until I saw Google use Paddington in their banner name on his birthday did I know such a bear existed. 😦 I think I was too much into those “Disneyland long playing records.” What is a record you ask? 😉

    TigerYogiji replies: Oh I know what a record is, and as far as never reading the Paddington books, all that I can say is what a deprived childhood you had… 😉
