Timmy at the Auction (193/365)

"At sales every other toy looks simply worn, dilapidated, grubby. A bear looks lost and abandoned and desperately in need of a loving home."
-Helen Thomson

TIME: 10:48 AM
PLACE: Auction
SUBJECT: Teddy Bear

The husband and I went to the local  monthly auction today to check out a car they had up for bid.
We decided to give it a go.
After what seemed like forever, they finally made it over to the car and started the bidding – It quickly went way over my self-appointed maximum and we dropped out.
Oh well.
I did see this teddy bear on one of the wagons.
It was an exact duplicate of my childhood bear, “Timmy”.
Only this one had a lot more fur.
