While Horatio's is owned by a bear, it's the place I get to play. I am Barbara,the human in charge, a wife, a mother, and grandmother. I've never been a sister by blood, but am a sister by choice, an aunt, a cousin and a friend. I am no longer a daughter, grand daughter or daughter in law since they have gone ahead . I am an artist of sorts, and a bear maker. I love things that are old and slightly imperfect and worn as I am.I adore my family, delight in the antics of my grandchildren. One cannot leave out the asorted animals that also call our house home.
