My Bears’ Mischievous Streak

If you have read here for any length of time, you know that my bears have a bit of a mischievous streak. (Evidence provided here, here and here.) They come by it honestly.

When my husband and I were visiting our daughter over the weekend, we went out for breakfast one day. Previously we had a bit of difficulty checking email by cell phone so I opened up the netbook we had taken with us.

Most of the time, I can navigate smoothly through most of the steps but when I come to something I am not familiar with, I hand it over to Mr. Computer Guy and let him drive.

It was because of just that type of situation that I had handed him the computer so he could navigate through the various computer thingys. He was totally engrossed in his task while using the touchpad to control the cursor.

Unbeknownst to him, I had taken out the wireless mouse that I like to use. I got my daughter’s attention and mouthed to her, “watch this” as I nodded to the mouse in my hand. I waited for just the right time and began to manipulate the cursor with the wireless mouse.

There were only a few seconds where my ever patient husband looked totally confused by the rogue cursor but being savvy like he is, he quickly figured out my plot. In the meantime, our daughter was doubled over in laughter and that was what made it entirely worth it.


  1. :D (lol) is a very funny anecdote, I can imagine the face of astonishment to see the mouse move alone!!

  2. You've been spending too much time with your mischievous bears! heeheehee!

  3. Also, I have given you a blog award if you want to stop by :)

    You don't have to do anything with it, I just wanted to share your blog with others :)

  4. I think I know where your bears get their mischievous side :) Funny story! Wish I could have seen it on video HAHHAHA!
    Bear Hugs and Blessings,

  6. Dear Ginger,
    I just found out about your blog from Jennifer who loves loves loves teddy bears and so do I.
    There is something that comes from having a give away that is richer than winning and that is the friendship that comes.
    You are so very talented it is beyond awesome...and your blog title with them looking out the window is ...well I am just at a loss of words and that does not happen any too often.
    I like the image in my mind of the pleasant respite on your front porch swing with your dog-most likely with an iced tea in one hand and a book in the other---only I would probably have my magazines.
    I was very sad tonight and I know that the LORD directed me to your sight for your humor and beautiful, gorgeous well as your adorable bears. I was reading your profile and we have alot of things in common.
    I hope you will drop by and see me and join me too
    have a blessed weekend
