Ginny finds Mossy sitting in the shady part of the garden reading a card…well Mossy cannot read so he is really just making it up… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   Ginny listen’s to him ‘reading’ ” We were so happy you were home when we came to visit, we did not want to see any of those other old bears especially not that grumpy Panda ! Why he is just..”
” Mossy!” says Ginny ” What are you doing? “
“Just Reading!” says Mossy innocently.. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA” Well I know that that note does not say that! It’s from Laura who came to Visit with Whoo her owl and it says about being your number two fan and Hattie’s number one fan ! Nothing about Edward !”
Throwing the card down Mossy huffs ” Don’t know no Tatty ! and she would have complained about Edward if she’d had time!”
” Not Tatty ! ” says Ginny giggling ” Hattie as you very well do know!Just be grateful you have two fans that write to you.” Mossy grins at Ginny’s words.
” What’s this? ” she asks touching another letter addressed to Mossy. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA” How would I know! I cannot read.. humm properly yet !” says Mossy ” But I can read my name and that’s my name…isn’t it? ” he questions not entirely sure.. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Ginny sits down and picks up the letter that is indeed addressed to Mossy! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   ” Oh how lovely ” says Ginny ” It’s from Clemence the Bramber Bear who went to live with Laura and her mum”
” What a cheek ! ” exclaims Mossy ” saying he hopes I’m not eating too many honey sandwiches ! I bet that’s because he wants them !”
” How would he eat them!” laughs Ginny ” He lives too far away now!”
Mossy thinks for a minute ” I bet he’ll be wanting us to send them to him! Well that’s not happening” he says firmly. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   “Hush !” laughs Ginny ” Look Laura and her mum have sent us all a present “
” Surely it’s for me? ” says Mossy
” No . It’s for all of us who welcomed Laura and Whoo and for sending Clemence to live with them “
” I did not send that old Clemence to live with them! I bet he just sneaked in their luggage ” grumbles Mossy ” anyway come on! How long does it take to open a parcel ! It looks like it’s green ? “ OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA” What! ” exclaims Mossy looking at the green dragon head ” It looks nothing like me! “
Ginny laughs ” It’s not meant to!” giggling she continues ” It’s a dragon hand puppet!”
” Are you..sure? “
“Yes ” says a still giggling Ginny ” Look” OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGinny gets up and pulls on the Dragon hand puppet ” Look Mossy ! It’s just perfect !” OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Ginny waves the dragon about roaring a dragons roar..   OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Mossy rests back against all the letters watching the green dragon puppet waving over his head.   OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Suddenly Ginny moves in closer Roaring ” I am going to eat you little bear !” OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA” I think you’ll find that Dragon’s are vegetarians ! ” says Mossy ” Just ask Drago !”
“Mossy only Drago’s a veggie and you are not supposed to tell people or he’ll be upset!”
” I’m not telling people I’ll telling you !”
” Well if you are going to be a grump I’m off to find someone else who’ll want to play dragons!” and so saying Ginny leaves , Mossy hears her go, her roaring fading the further away she gets ..

Peace at last thinks Mossy but he’s too soon because out of the flower beds comes….. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  Gunther!
“Guten  Morn Bossy bear ! How are you? ” he calls crossing towards the bench
” Can a bear never have a moment to think?” mutters Mossy OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA“What’s that Bossy bear? you want a drink? sorry I no have drink on me !” booms Gunther
“I did not say drink and who you calling Bossy? “
” Why you of course ” says Gunther with a big friendly grin ” You Bossy the grim !”
for a moment Mossy sits in disbelief at what he’s just heard  ” My NAME is M O S S Y the G R E E N ” he spells out loudly
” Truly? ” asks Gunther
“Y E S “
” Mm  well if you are sure? I was certain it was Bossy the grim or was that Bossy the grump? Or lump? or “
“WHAT ” shouts Mossy getting a little bit annoyed ” do you want? “ OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   ” Want? ” Gunther looks puzzled ” I want nothing from you Bossy bear ” Mossy give him a steely eyed glare , hiding his smile Gunther say ” I mean Mossy bear !”
“Well then be on your way I have thinking to do!”
” You think? ” says Gunther in a stunned voice ” Truly? ” seeing Mossy start to go red in the face with rage Gunther quickly continues ” Of course you do! Any of the ways! I am going on a hunt for juicy bugs for dinner, would you like to join me?”
Mossy goes from being red to being very white faced ” Bugs? “ OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   Gunther move’s forward and pats Mossy’s shoulder ” Yes Bugs!” he says gleefully ” Lovely juicy bugs to go in our Honey sandwiches to add a little….how you say..oh yes BITE!”
Mossy’s starting to feel quite sick ” Bugs in honey…sandwiches…” he gulps feeling his stomach lurch ” No !” OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Mossy feels the world tilting!! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   Gunther decide’s he’s wound the Bossy Mossy bear up enough ! He jumps down before the little grey bear can hear his snickering ” Ah you English Bears have been too dolly coddled …”
” Molly Coddled ” corrects Mossy faintly
” Dolly!  Molly ! ” Gunther growls ” coddled , you do not remember your heritage eating bugs and tasty grubs . I will bring you some back to try ” he hurries away ” And pick up your papers before you leave this is not a rubbish tips!” OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   Guther comes to a patch of weeds ” That Mr Dad needs to get out in this patch and start his work !” he growls. For the listening Mossy’s benefit he calls ” lecker sieht das ein guter Ort, um Fehler zu finden!”
( which means this looks a good place to find bugs!”) OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   He start’s to leap into the weeds when a fly buzzes straight into his open mouth !
” Ugh! ” spit spit ” Yuck Arg! ” he hurries away trying to rid his throat of the fly ! He thinks he might be sick…. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  Meanwhile Bossy ,,Ar I mean Mossy is lying down unaware of Gunther’s fly drama, worrying that Mrs mum might decide to start adding bugs to his Honey sandwiches if that Gunther tells her it’s good for bears! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA” and another thing ! “, he thinks as he starts to nod off ” if that Laura’s his number two fan why is she not sending him them honey sandwiches next day special delivery instead of feeding them to that greedy Clemence who when he lived here only ever wanted orange or lemon marmalade sandwiches….mmm that Laura must make very good honey sandwic…..zzzz zzzz z z z z z z z !
