Oil change

Today I am going to bring my car in for an oil change.  If you own a car, you'll know that it's a good idea to have it checked out after driving 3,000 to 5,000 feet or so.

I drove to a local car repair shop.  I was pleasantly surprised to meet a fellow bear.

"G'day!  And welcome to KoKo's Kars.  I'm KoKo," he said.  "What can I do for you, mate?"

"Hello, I would like to get an oil change for my car," I said.

"No worries, mate," he said.  He quickly got to work.

"Can you pass me the wrench?" he asked from underneath the car.

I handed him the wrench.

"I have to admit that I do not know that much about cars," I said.

"No worries, mate!  That's what I'm here for."

"I'll also check your lights while I'm at it," KoKo said.  "Can you flick them on please?"

I turned on the front headlights.

"One of the bulbs seems to be broken, but that's not a problem mate.  I'll pop in a new one," he said.

Then KoKo checked the tires.

"Do you see this rear tire, mate?  It's a little deflated compared to the front tire.  Have a look see."

"Ah, you're right," I said.

"And after I pump some air into it, it'll look like..."


"Ah, much better!"

"Alright, how about a quick vacuum mate?"

"Thank you beary much!" I said.  "How much do I owe you?"

"Nah, nothing for you," KoKo said.  "Just have a g'day mate!"

"Wow, thanks!  Same to you!" I said.  Then I drove away.

It is hard to find a good, honest (and free) mechanic nowadays!  I'll have to pay KoKo back somehow.

Hi everyone, I hope you're having a great week.  I just downloaded the Ubear app on my PawPad.  Perhaps you have used Ubear before.  Anyways, I just signed up as a driver to make a little extra cash, you know, for honey and snacks.

From my PawPad, I can see who in my neighborhood needs a ride.  Then after a quick tap on the screen, I can select them as a rider.  It's as simple as that.

Hey, it looks like someone needs a ride right now!

Alright, let's go!  Remember to buckle up - safety first.

I wonder who my first customer will be.  By the way, perhaps I should get some vanity plates?

My first customer is...


"Hi, Uncle Tibbs," I said.  "Did you request an Ubear?"

"Yes I did," he replied.  He then proceeded to get into the car.  The car wobbled back and forth.

"ERGHHH...UNGHHH..."  He could only squeeze one of his beary large feet into the passenger seat.

"Hmm..." he said, scratching his head.  "Ajdin, I'm not quite sure I can fit in your car."

"Uncle Tibbs... I think you need... an Ubear XL!"

Tour guide uniform

Hello everyone, I'm just trying on my Stuffie Tours tour guide shirt that I got recently.  I can't wait to wear it while giving tours.


Yeah, it fits!  Now I'm ready to lead some sightseeing trips!

Chinese New Year

I wasn't sure what the card said that Julie Jane Zebra and Elsie sent me, so I decided to ask Uncle Tibbs about it.

"Hey Uncle Tibbs," I started to say.  "这张卡是 。。哦,怎么了?我为什么突然会说汉语呢?"

“因为今天是春节!” Uncle Tibbs 回答了。
“对, 春节啊!  新年快乐 Ajdin!” 他说。
“你说什么我都能听懂。。。好奇怪!” 我惊讶得说。
“今年是猴年,” Uncle Tibbs 说。

“恭喜发财!红包拿来!谢谢!” 我说。“呵呵呵!”

Hello everyone!  I've received a lot of fun stuff recently that I want to show you.  First up is a jar of artisan honey from my friend Droopy.  Mmm, that'll be nice with a piece of fresh, warm bread.

Then Jerry and Ben sent me a card from a certain coffee shop because they thought I would like the design.  Isn't it cute?

Next up is a large envelope, also from Droopy.  There was a drawing of a bear on the back.  Does it look like me?  I wonder what's inside.

Cool!  SALMON WARS A Very Vader Valentine's Day activity book and cards!

Here is also a card from Jerry and Ben.

It's a Valentine's Day card - thank you!

I also received a card from Julie Jane Zebra (and Elsie).  It is a handmade card from their shop Studio Lumio.  It looks like it is written in Chinese.  I am not sure what it says but I will ask Uncle Tibbs tomorrow because his Chinese is better than mine.

And finally... it is Beanie Mouse's traveling art book version 2!  I will have to think of something to draw inside it, then I will send it back to Beanie.  This art book has traveled all over the world!

Have a great day everyone!
