The Bear Facts

about me
I chose my personal assistant in 1978 while hanging out at Macy's. She's been my slave ever since. I have friends and fans all over the world and why not? I'm a bear of the world and a bear about town. I've traveled extensively and will continue to do so as long as I have the stuffing. I recently discovered the joys of fashion and am now a bit of a clothes horse bear. I have a little friend, Filbert I met on my recent trip to Washington and the South. He's my little buddy, though he does get himself into trouble from time to time. Can't hold his booze! I'm a gin bear, myself and have had myself many a wild night! I'll tell you some of my stories someday! On January 3rd, 2007, after a whirlwind, gin and scotch whiskey soaked courtship, I married a lovely, sweet (and a little salty), lady bear named Ursula. We were married at the Ritz Carlton, San Francisco by Captain Puppet. Sigh.......I am a wordly wise bear and yet I am Ga-Ga in LOVE like a School Boy!!! Sigh.......

Or, at least the clever ones! I need your help translating this message I'm sure if from our beloved Captain Puppet!! Don't ask why if he could scrawl cleverly coded numbers, he couldn't just write something! This is Captain Puppet we're talking about! Get out your decoder rings and get started. What? You don't have decoder rings? Blast! We're doomed!

Gilbert is a bear of the world! He has impecable taste in friends (look at his assistant, after all). He has a true poetic sense and a linguistic gift. Therefore, we all overlook his gin binges. Here here for a remarkable bear!

gilbert is a fine bear and a loyal friend. he is better and smarter than the rest of you put together, except for flea. he is an organizational genius. he is one of the few stuffed animals that i do not want to taste. if only all the bears on tribe were more like gilbert, then tribe would be a much better place. you the man, gilbet!! err, the bear. peace, lothar the testimonial fairy

What can I say about such a dashing, debonair, bear-about-town? He's a poet and a scholar. He's had some rough luck, losing his best little buddy, but I admire how he's determined to turn that tragedy into a new destiny: to take the world by storm!
