Windsor Orchid Society Show

Here I am with Mr. and Mrs. Lee. They are very special people. They have a special job.  They grow orchids. I'm holding a lady slipper. That's a very pretty orchid. I hope it tastes as good as it smells!
Hi. I'm Charles the Bear Cub. You know me. I'm five. I live on Sparkle Road with my buddy, Grandpa 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! Oh. Wait! Frankie lives with us, too. He's four. We all go to the Scruffy Maple Day Care Centre.

Know what? We got invited to the orchid show. Orchids are flowers. They are very pretty and they smell good, too.  Our buddy, Gwen, took all the pix. She's a very good camera lady.

There are lots and lots of different kinds of orchids. They grow almost everywhere in the world, you know. I could grow orchids when I grow up. I could be an orchid farmer! That would be the bestest job in the whole world!

Some orchids grow in picnic baskets. They look very yummy. We asked Grandpa James to buy us an orchid. We wanted to eat it. Grandpa James said, "My sons! You can't eat orchids! They're not in Canada's Food Guide!" We were a little sad.

This is Grandpa Foeke's orchid. It name oncidium. We just call him Onnie. Grandpa Foeke won two prizes for this beautiful flower. We can smell it but we're not allowed to eat it, you know.

Our buddy Mary had an orchid at the show. It was at the front door to welcome everyone.
Did you hear that? Grandpa 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!  Grandpa James is hollering. "Where's Frankie? Where's my Knight of Knewfoundland and my Lord of Labrador?" We gotta go find Grandpa James so we can get our ears tickled and our noses kissed. This is me, Charles the Bear Cub saying, "Be good citizens. Stop and smell the orchids. Then you can eat Smarties and drink root beer. Oh! Wait! Come over to our house and play with us! We can hunt for orchids in the back yard! Okay! Over and out!"
