This is taking over my life

I share my bed with a barbershop quartet.

Lest you think that is TMI, I guess I should mention that it is a "quartet" of stuffed animals. Becky & I had given each other stuffed dogs some time ago, whom we named Sandy & Chewie, and then some friends sent me a stuffed wombat, named Wilma. The foursome was completed when I returned from the Barbershop Harmony Society convention in Denver with a "barbershop bear" for Becky -- a teddy bear wearing a red vest and a BHS pin.

I added my own "BARI" pin (I don't really have any place to wear it except barbershop gatherings), and that became the bear's name: Bari. Our boys, Brandon & Benjamin, promptly decided that he and the other three animals make up a barbershop quartet.

We've yet to hear them sing, though.

Chewy says Hi and that he is excited that his talents are finally recognized by anyone other than a certain dog, bear, and wombat. I would also like to congratulate the quartet (I didn't know they could sing). Ha! Ha! Ha!
