Welcome to Thursday Coffee Hour. This is an open topic thread so help yourself to the goodies and sit a spell and let us know what is new with you. I loved stuffed animals. I have collected them all my life. I have a J. Fred Muggs stuffed animal that I have has since 1955.  He went to college with me.

There is something very comforting about stuffed animals. I think children instinctively know that their favorite animal is in a very real sense alive and will be there for them. I know J. Fred has heard all of my problems and been there for me through thick and thin. He has been with me in the hospital. He was with me through the tears of my parents and brother's deaths. He was with me and gave me strength through an abusive marriage.

One of the nice thing about having my own place is that all of my stuffed animals are out. Some live on the bed and some in the computer room. J. Fred and Valentine the magical unicorn live on the bed. Valentine had received many hugs when I'm stressed. Reid and I believe that the unicorn has magical properties because since his arrival in my house I have been able to solve some huge problems. I have him working on some problems now.

It is your turn. Tell us about the stuffed animals or other friends that you grew up with.

J. Fred Muggs, my oldest best friend
Valentine, the magical unicorn
The bedroom friends
Some of the computer room friends
More computer room friends
And yes I am a 49ers and Joe Montana fan

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
