  1. Cute postcard, it is not often you would see a bear ironing. I do not like ironing. Have a happy day!

  2. Ironing Day! I am glad that my ironing board and iron stay in the closet every Tuesday. Only every once in awhile do I have to use that old thing. :-)

  5. Wall had a cool idea to make his cards sell. He was also a talented artist.

  10. Ah! I missed commenting on this one of the bear series. I only iron when absolutely necessary. While I don't hate ironing, I don't find it particularly exciting either.
