A View of Things to Come?

I went out the other day and when I came home I found that the living room had been turned into a surgery.

Mira had won a bear as a prize for picking paper out of the garbage and putting it into recycling bin. We take recycling seriously in this house and she though that it was ridiculous for students to throw paper in the garbage when a recycling bin was close at hand.
In any case, the bear had "an object in his chest". You can see the "x-ray" below.
Liam helped by being the official photographer. Here Mira is "opening" the patient.

Here is the offending object. This bear must have been sitting around for a long time because the batteries were somewhat low and his singing was terribly slow.

She is now "closing". The surgery was successful.
And the patient is recovering well.

What a cute post!

Do you suppose that Mira will be ready to do my surgery on the 11th of July?

By the look of satisfaction on the bear's face, I think that maybe I would be in good hands.

That is so funny. I suppose a future surgeon does need to practice and the little bear looks like he is doing so well, judging by the smile on his face. Good show.

A Teddy-ectomy is a very delicate procedure. I'm glad she has the skillful hands to carry out such an operation.
And that's great new about recycling.
