Teddy Bear Contest

For me, the highlight of
concert season has become
the "Last Night of The
Proms" concert,
performed in Vancouver
by the VSO and the Bach Choir.

Part of the evening involves
a teddy bear contest. Dozens of people compete, from small children to old men.

This year's theme was "Best Dressed As A
Performer Bear". I found the perfect
outfit for my favourite furry friend,
complete with pearls,
matching Mary Janes
and a tiny cello.

To our great surprise, Rosie Bell and I won first prize and were awarded a glorious CD of choral music performed by the Vancouver Bach Choir. Miss Belle tried to curtsy in gratitude but her chubby bear legs are not made for that!

I loved having a chance to inject some whimsy into the everyday. It's back to real life now, but I can't wait to see what Miss Belle will choose to dress up in next year...
