…and the Teddy Bear, well here is an explanation, you are welcome to use the pictures and story, its true !!! well in a tabloid way, Teddy did not drive himself to Heathrow.

67 years ago in 1946 Kitty Harris bought a Teddy Bear for her son Paul Harris, 30 years later Paul Harris left for Africa, abandoning his mother and Teddy Bear but they found solace together. Paul ended up owning in the USA that he sold to Getty Images in 1999, in 2004 he founded with 2 partners Pacific Coast News in California. In February 2014 Kitty Harris died at 93, Teddy Drove to London after the funeral determined to get to California, he made it and laid poolside at Paul’s home in March 2014 remembering 67 years.”
Regards, Paul Harris.
