Good catch MEB, but is this Fred or Ned?

Hi Brightnow,

The one on the right is our sweet Fred, who is by now a real trouper with the band! The youngster on the left is the new glitzy Las Vegas monkey but at the moment I can't remember his name....(Mother Mary, where are you?). However, Ned is not in this photo...probably couldn't handle the Vegas scene and was resting! :D

Hey I just saw Fred and his new friend from Las Vegas! In Las Vegas I saw this whole scene unfold like in the movies...I was watching Mary B trying to get to the front from our row HH. Her plan was to give the monkey to Leonard to join Fred and little Ned. The security guard was standing close and keeping his eye on the audience...and Mary.
then at one point he left and Mary darted forward to row 2 and sat in a seat that a couple had just left as they thought the show was over...then the couple came back as they heard the encore so Mary had to run back with the bear in her arms to her seat. Then the security guard showed up again...once he left she ran and I mean ran to the front and threw new bear:I don't think she has named him yet - dressed in glittery Las Vegas style clothes onto the stage. As I recall it Leonard was kneeling down and did not see the bear lying there for quite some time...when he stood up he saw the bear and picked him up and cradled him next to his heart. Very sweet and touching..
Getting back to Mary B and the new Las Vegas bear with no name as yet...it is nice to see he is not alone and is sitting next to Fred!!!
His auntie Diana and Mother Mary will be happy to hear this...
Leslie (Mutti) ;-)

I always check, Dino's, Sharon's and Joey's tweets, and then Joey's flicker before coming to the forum, and yes indeedy, I saw the photo Joey had posted on his flicker pagehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/fauxmantic/archiv ... 009/11/12/. Thank you Joey!

Not a bear Leslie, but a monkey = Vegas Ed! Hopefully, he'll be joining Fred and Fred's little brother Ned. Now all that Ned and Ed need are instruments.

Aaaahhhh....I see a concert in the future of MaryB.......but she was not supposed to have any more concerts.....strange things are at work in the world, over which we have no power......I see instruments appearing from heaven.....or perhaps from the stage. No, no, no....it is the Leonard power that is drawing her to another concert.....no, no, no. She protests, but it is in vain. The Ticketmaster god looms over us all and directs our paths. May new instruments appear for the needy. I see sunshine and warmth in the future....it is time to succumb to the power. :D :D

:lol: What a hilarious scene you've just painted, Mutti :lol: :lol: :lol: ! Knowing Mary it is soooooooooooooooo easy to picture all the darting to and fro :lol: !!! If anyone ever uses the word crazed, what are we to do? A straight face? A feigned look of innocence? A guilty look of denial?

The monkey to Leonard's heart made it all worthwhile.

Haha! I love Mr. Kewl's position to listen 8) .

A very sweet photo [and apt description, Mutti] of Leonard with the new sibling.

Et tu Lizzy - on Facebook? Am I the last hold out for fear that more of my time will be consumed by this gentleman that we all love?
