Thread Name: Winnie the Pooh
Subject: RE: BS: Winnie the Pooh
My grandparents lived in Lodsworth, near Haslemere, Surrey in the 1950s. Ernest Shepard and his wife were neighbors and friends. At one of my grandfather's cocktail parties someone asked Shepard if had used Christopher Robin Milne as the model for the drawings in the Pooh books. "Heavens,no", was the response, "Christopher Robin had knobbly knees, used me own son."

"Evil Disney Pooh"...Wyrd Sister, your daughter has excellent taste!
