“Say, Pooh, why aren’t you busy?” I said.
“Because it’s a nice day,” said Pooh.
“Yes, but -”
“Why ruin it?” he said.
“But you could be doing something Important,” I said.
“I am, ” said Pooh.
“Oh? Doing what?”
“Listening,” he said.
“Listening to what?”
“To the birds. And that squirrel over there.”
“What are they saying?” I asked.
“That it’s a nice day,” said Pooh.
“But you know that already,” I said.
“Yes, but it’s always good to hear that somebody else thinks so, too,” he replied.

Dear Aunt Nancy, I love that you shared the little details of your delightful morning with us all, baking banana bread, and seeing a bobcat in your own backyard! Did you get the pie crust out of the oven before all the neighbors arrived? that would have been Pooh Bear’s biggest concern as well. ❤
