Luuk List

OK, Luuk has turned out to be one popular bear (and I wish I could have his frequent flier miles!)

Let's work it thus: I have a list here, and we will have this be the "shipping to" list. If the timing is bad or whatever, we can move names around. But otherwise, this is the order in which the little man sees the world. If he sees a town more than once, that's totally OK! It's about perspective-what is it that makes your town great for you?

That, and the bear is just so damn cute that of course people want to host him...

And I slept with him, so I can vouch for his coolness.

OK, so here's the list as I have it. And if you want to add your name, simply comment here and I will just tack you to the list.

Jean in Alabama
Brass in Colorado

David in Texas-Alamo, baby. You know what to do.
Pylorns in Austin-I see 6th Street drinking in Luuk's future!
Ted in D.C. - Everyday Bear for Senator!
Tiffani in Cleveland-Rock and Roll Hall of Fame sounds GREAT!
Jennifer in New Orleans-Luuk goes voodoo!
Sue in Indiana-take one of your gorgeous country shots!
Robert in Jersey (the island) - one of my favorite places.
Kaetchen in San Francisco-wonder if Luuk will go to a bath house?
Carlene in New Orleans - he needs debauching. Definitely.
Guinness in Sacramento- I trust you, Guinness, to get my guy drunk.
Suz in Kansas City-maybe a Chiefs Game? You decide!
Melodrama in Calcutta-damn this bear gets to visit India and I don't!
Michael in Minneapolis - that poor bear goes from India to Minn. Brrrrr!
Hilary in Halifax - Where the real bears play hockey.
Light&Dark on Canada's West Coast - my little guy will be a native Canadian in no time.
LeeAnn know what, LeeAnn? I have absolutely NO IDEA where you live, girlfriend!
Beth Donovan in Ft. Leavenworth - Luuk on horseback, what a FAB idea!


PS-the next comment puts me at 1,000!

See, I knew Don was up to no good. He even has that sinster laugh.

I wish I was Luuk, too! Just contact the person's name on the list above you.

Suz, can you email Melodrama so that she can reply with her address? her site is on the right, called "When I Paint My Masterpiece". Thanks!

Umm... Who do I email or contact for further details? I noticed Suz doesnt have a blog or webpage. I wish I was Luuk.

Well, I wasn't able to take Luuk to D.C. this weekend, although I did take him out drinking in Old Town and then back to Zack's where he, um, played with some of my friends.

I will, however, be taking him to D.C. this week. If any of you are in the area and want to meet Luuk, let me know.

Let me tell you, this is ONE FUN BEAR and I will hate having to give him up. Maybe I'll send a different bear. Muahahaha!

Sorry, Hilary! All fixed now, and it's no problem when your turn comes up, I can post the pics here (it was my amibition to post Luuk's pics here anyway, but it doesn't work so well on a dial-up connection. Proper Internet to be working on my pc in a week or two.)

h--light&dark is on the *west* coast...i'm on the east....
i don't keep a blog, will have to e-mail the pictures when my turn comes around.

Posted by: hilary at November 23, 2003 06:08 PM

You got it, Beth, I think that would be great! I've added you to the list...

Posted by: Helen at November 23, 2003 04:06 PM

We'd love to take Luuk to Ft. Leavenworth - he could see the Buffalo Soldier Monument, and go for a ride on one of our horses. I think he and Willy would get along well.
And we could even take him into Kansas City to see the Plaza lights.

Posted by: Beth Donovan at November 23, 2003 04:01 PM

Sorry, Howard, you just missed it:)

Hilary-Luuk would LOVE Halifax. I shall add you to the list. And your hockey recount made me absoutely drool with envy. Those are REAL men, right there. Mmmmm...

Light&Dark-Luuk definitely needs to see the Rockies. You are being added, too. And thanks for the warm wishes, but sadly very little sleep being had...

LeeAnn-Luuk needsa bit of wildness in his life. I think he needs to come visit you, too. Thoughts?

Posted by: Helen at November 23, 2003 08:13 AM

I was going to ask to be added to the Luuk Love Visit List, but I realized I am not a very responsible person and would probably teach Luuk all kinds of bad habits and deviant behaviors, not to mention the possibility I would fall madly in love with him and respond to his furry hotness in very inappropriate ways.
But I would never ever introduce him to Michael Jackson.

If Hillary can show LUUK Canada's East Coast, I'll tour him around here out west in the Canadian Rockies. Oh, and maybe a side trip to Drumheller to show him the Hoodoos and let him check out the world famous dinosaur digs and museum.

You're gonna have to stock him up on bennies to handle all the jet lag.

Hope you're having a restful weekend, hon.

sorry, nothing about luuk...although if he wants to come to halifax, i can show him a good time....

but holy crap helen! the oilers are playing the canadiens *outside* at commonwealth stadium (there are 50000 people there) in edmonton! it's -19C and -27C with the windchill, and they're out there........pretty incredible. for those of you with satellite, the cbc is showing the game......of course, those of you in cda are glued to the tv, right?
prior to this, the cdns oldtimers (including guy lafleur and ...) played to a 2-0 loss against the 80's oilers (including gretzky, and messier, who had to get special permission along with glen sather from the rangers to play tonight), also outside.
way to sell your small market team, edmonton!!

okay, now back to your regular luuk programming.

really. halifax in .. what? would it be may before i get him...? is interesting. really.

Am I comment #1000?

Posted by: Howard at November 23, 2003 12:08 AM

Cool!!! Timing is everything. I'm sure it will be short lived when you hit 2000 by January :)

Posted by: Drew at November 22, 2003 11:31 PM

I was expecting to receive LUUK from Simon...but I just read that Don at AM has intercepted him!! I hope LUUK didn't fall prey to any foul play!?

JIM, #1002

Yeah, my favorite Drew was my one thousandth comment!

A travel bear or rabbit. He's all about inter-species dating.

Posted by: Helen at November 22, 2003 09:22 PM

Damn the bear sure gets around. Prehaps we should find him a travel bear to keep him company on the flights?
