When I went off to college, I left that bear at home. I thought I'd probably keep it forever and didn't want to loose it at school. Ironically, the bear was lost when a hurricane hit my hometown about a month later.
So imagine how happy I was to look in a bin at Goodwill Outlet six years after the storm and see this little guy: (It was like seeing a friendly ghost!)

I think it's safe to say that this bear will stay close by for a long time. Sometimes what's lost can be found in the strangest places. Even Goodwill Outlet bins :)
