Blog: Bobby’s Diary

In this section, I would like to report to you on how my mom, Yasuko, is living her life. Life is often compared to a drama. My mom, Yasuko, is playing the leading role in her drama, and I am a supporting actor there. Having observed her life beside her every day, I have found that human life is “beary” interesting, full of unexpected things for bears. Also, I have found that human emotions are “beary” sensitive. So, I would like to share my observations with you in the form of a diary. I hope you will enjoy my diary.
