Thirty-Five: Winnie The Pooh
Last birthday post today ~
Kenny Loggins — Return to Pooh Corner
Winnie the Pooh was DEFINITELY my biggest childhood obsession. Mom and I watched this all the time, and I loved it so much. I think I really connected with it because I shared Christopher Robin’s first name, and I thought that was SO cool. So, anyway, once my mom got the radio station to play this song for my birthday. :’) this is one of my sweetest childhood memories, and I can’t really describe all the sentimental feelings I get from this song. Definitely a good song for that weird transition into “adulthood” or whatever. :D
winnie the pooh was my childhood obsession too…
“The game was first played at a bridge located in Ashdown Forest, close to the village of Upper Hartfield, East Sussex, England. Built in 1907 and originally called Posingford Bridge, it is considered to be the bridge on which Milne and his son first played the game. However, it is uncertain whether the game was first played at the bridge then written into the story, or vice versa. The bridge maintained the public’s interest and a campaign to rebuild it in the late seventies was considered important enough to feature on the BBC Nine O’Clock News. The bridge was subsequently reopened by Christopher Robin Milne and officially renamed as Poohsticks Bridge.”
well that’s just too cute.
