froggie said...

oh that's just WRONG, barclay. you've gone off the gamut on the cute meter. you're gonna send grandmoms into giggling and cooing tizzies with this one. although, wouldn't it be fun if the red bird was like, kind of creepy and starts pecking at p bears head, whenever pbear says something random or annoying? then cute becomes, er, hitchcockian? :)))

wonnnderful as always! and thanks so much for the visits, eric! :)
