Blimey! Gents, With Whom, or With What Do You Sleep?

Damn! He was a wild one, old Hatchet Jack. He was livin' two year in a cave up on the Musselshell with a female panther. She never did get used to him. Del Gue from Jeremiah Johnson

Brits with their Teddys (plush toy animals -

Well, in the last 12 months, British hotel chain Travelodge has reunited more than 75,000 bears with the owners. That's a lot of stuffed animals left at its 452 hotels in the United Kingdom and Spain. So the company decided to investigate a bit further.

Travelodge surveyed 6,000 Britons and discovered that 35 percent of adults admitted they sleep with their teddy because they found cuddling their bear comforting. Additionally, many said the calming feeling of a bear hug helped them lower their stress level after a hard day.

And it turns out that a large number of the bear-toting travelers are men.

Travelodge said that 25 percent of men reported they take their teddy bear away with them when going away on business. The stuffed animal supposedly reminds them of home and -- some say -- helps fill a cuddle-void left by distant partners.

Cuddle void? Tell me about it.

I, a widow man, sleep soundly, hugging the faith and knowledge that the quality and cast-iron dependability of my Zoeller Effluent or dewatering submersible pump for septic tank, low pressure pipe (LPP) and enhanced flow STEP systems is humming and that Kennedy Brothers Sewer
