Windsor Pride 2011

Hi. I'm Charles the Bear Cub. You know me. I live on Sparkle Road with my buddy, James. He's really old. He was the second Canadian to get off Noah's Ark, you know.

Oh. Wait! Chance lives with us, too. He's a newborn cubby someone left in a basket on our doorstep. He's a wee little thing. I look after Chance, too. He's a handful!

Chance and me are wearing rainbows. That's 'cuz we're proud bear cubs and we're at Pride. Our buddies Jay and Heather are proud, too.

I know what Pride is. It's how we feel when we're nice to ourselves. We feel good. We're kind to others, too. Chance and me are proud. We're proud every day.

It's a hot day, even on the river front. Know what? James says we can get ice cream. We get to go to Busker's Ice Cream Parlour. That's on Tecumseh Road.  I LOVE ice cream, don't you? I don't know what kind of ice cream I want. It's hard to choose. They're all yummy and yummy is one of the four food groups in Canada's Food Guide. I know! I want every flavour! I will eat them all! Chance can help me. He's good at licking things. Know what? He tried to lick the Christmas tree ornaments. That's 'cuz he's a wee little thing an doesn't know any better. We're gonna eat orange sherbet. That's very yummy. Chance will help me lick it ALL up!

 Oh. Wait! Did you hear that? James is hollering, "Where are my handsome bear cubs? Where are my Sons of Windsor? Where are my Princes of Ontario? That's me! Charles! That's Chance! We're handsome bear cubs. We're Sons of Windsor and Princes of Ontario! We gotta go find James so we can get our ears tickled and our noses kissed.

 This is me, Charles the Bear Cub saying, "Be good citizens. Be nice to yourself and kind to others. Then you can be proud. You can eat Smarties and drink root beer. Oh! Wait! Come over to our house and play with us! We can eat orange sherbet and be proud together! Okay! Over and out!"
