A visitor

This morning, the doorbell rang.  I went to see who it was.  There was a beary big bear at the door, as big as Uncle Tibbs.

"Uh, hello?" I said.

"Hello there, sweetie!  I'm looking for Arthur.  Does he live here?"  She was wearing a hat.

I thought for a moment.  "Hmm... I'm sorry but there is no one here named Arthur."

"Are you sure, honeybuns?  I'm pretty sure this is the right address."

"Sorry, there is no one here named Arthur, bear or non-bear," I said.

"Well," she said, "My name is Mrs. Daisy Elizabeth Anne Tibbs and I'm Arthur Tibbs' mother.  I'm here to visit him."

"Ajdin, who's at the door?" Uncle Tibbs asked, as he walked by.  "MOM???"

Now I was confused.  "ARTHUR???" I asked.

"Oh, Little Artie doesn't like to be called Arthur but that's his name alright," Mrs. Tibbs explained.

"Yes yes, my full name is Arthur Tibbs," Uncle Tibbs said to me, rolling his eyes.

"And you must be his friend Ajdin that he tells me about so much."  Mrs. Tibbs pinched my cheeks and gave me a caramelized salmon candy from her purse.  I liked her beary much already.

Big bear hugs were exchanged, and I, as a little bear, made sure to get out of the way.

"Oh Artie, you've gotten so thin!  I'll need to fatten you up with some fishcakes and honey pies, fish and grits, fried fish..."  She went into the kitchen and began cooking up a storm.

Fishcakes?  Honey pies?  I'm beary much looking forward to Momma Tibbs' cooking.

Uncle Tibbs and his mom look beary similar don't they?


  1. Mrs. Daisy seems beary nice (would she be your Great Aunt then????)

    Arthur (umm, I mean Uncle Tibbs) is beary lucky to have her drop in for a few days. How long will Mrs. Daisy be staying with you?

    I think Arthur should take her on an adventure? Mrs. Daisy seems beary outgoing.....

    1. I'm not sure how long she is staying... I hope she stays longer so I will be beary well-fed. :) Also, Uncle Tibbs just keeps on scowling at me whenever I call him Arthur...

  2. Mrs. Daisy... well... and "Arthur"... hmmm... you do live a life full of surprises Ajdin!! She seems like a nice southern belle... I do think you will be eating well while she is visiting!!

  3. What a surprise! Those honey cakes do sound amazing! How long is your guest staying?

    1. Thanks for the map of Minnesota guys! SOunds like a fun place - I will have to visit soon...

  4. D.E.A. Tibbs? Is she an undercover agent?...
