True Colours Thursday - SILVER!

After thoroughly inspecting the household Hug, I had came to the sad conclusion, that I had no SILVER bear to introduce here.
I confessed to Miss Merry, my disappointment @ not being able to participate as a consequence, in Mother's meme this week; saying, how I did not like to let her down, she is a good sort but...
Merry, being merry, ever cheerful - told me not to despair and mysteriously, disappeared upstairs.
Quite sometime later, she reappeared.
I have to confess, to bearly recognising her!
Then, the dear girl settled down on Mother's SILVER thread cushion and posed for me!!!
She certainly, warms an elderly bears heart.
Here is Miss Merry, wearing her silk SILVER designer Kimono...I was delighted!
But, somewhat dumbfounded @ her unexpected dress skills.
So, politely, enquired how, she had acquired them.
Apparently, this resourceful girl, had, had the 'inflight' movie during her aeroplane trip from America, relayed to her travel box.
The film was called 'Geisha!'
I believe Mother has seen it too and has read the the book 'The Memoirs of a Geisha' by Arthur Golden, which she found absolutely fascinating as it transported her to a rapidly vanishing world little known about in the West.
Sorry! Digressing here; Merry was very taken with the Japanese costumes and watched it repeatedly over the long flight.
Just to prove her paw-ficiency, in the art of the Kimono, she proceeded to re-tied her attire.
I, as a gentleman, quickly averted my eyes, till she said look...Do note that it is enhanced by a SILVER pin too...What a treasure Merry was for solving that SILVER dilemma of mine.
She is a little young for me in the romanctic stakes, but certainly is my very 'Best Friend'.
Hugs to all,

Good one,silver bear but I like 'Maxwell's silver hammer' song the best.
We had a Burmese kitty we called Maxwell, a wee darling, but he got himself run over after only 9 short months.
