Winnie the Pooh rolling in mud to disguise himself as, a little back rain cloud, in order to sneak some honey from the bees, a cunning plan that does not quite work out as he anticipates. The Maximum card features the recently issued stamp of Christopher Robin and his bear with a Pooh Corner, Hartfield, cancellation, a place where you can have cream teas in Piglit's Tea Room and various cakes, some featuring honey. Pooh would approve of that, his own words, "It is more fun to talk to someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but short easy words like 'What about lunch'". Perhaps afterwards play Pooh Sticks at Poosticks Bridge. Of course any bridge in the world is available for Pooh Sticks, identify the sticks, throw in the river, and race to the other side to see who has won. A game played by generations of children, and one you don't ever quite grow out of.
This year the countries participating in the 2010 Europa stamp issue used the theme of childrens books. Here in Britain they featuring AA Milne's Winnie the Pooh and the EH Sheppard drawings, which unlike the coloured-in postcard, used the original black and white images
of Pooh and friends. He may have been "a bear of very little brain" but had lots fun with his friends. As AA Milne wrote "Wherever they go, and whatever happens to them on the way, in that enchanted place on the top of the forest, a little boy and his bear will always be playing".
