The birth of pooh

Mollie Greene reminds us that this week is Pooh's birthday. Celebrate.
When I first heard his name, I said, just as you are going to say, "But I thought he was a boy?"
"So did I," said Christopher Robin.
"Then you can't call him Winnie?"
"I don't."
"But you said -- "
"He's Winnie-ther-Pooh. Don't you know what 'ther' means?"
"Ah, yes, now I do," I said quickly; and I hope you do too, because it is all the explanation you are going to get.

That's fantastic. The blogger describes herself as this:

"As a Children's Librarian in the greatest Children's Room of the greatest library system in the greatest city in the world, I have the unique opportunity to research, contact, promote, and see live performances by some of the best bands and musicians who perform Children's music."

Thanks Whitebox (it's you, right Mel?)
