Da Real Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh

One of da lady's earliest memories is of her mum singing to her,
"They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace -
Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
Alice is marrying one of the guard.
"A soldier's life is terrible hard,"

Says Alice."

Da lady still have her childhood Winnie the Pooh book wif original E. H. Shepard drawings as above, not dat dreadful Disney scribble. I wish someone would animate in original style.

Da lady knew about Queen Elizabeth before she knew about da president.

Christopher Robin Milne grew up to own a book store and wrote a few books of his own.
