Hi, I'm Eric. I am married to Gena, BUMBY's awesome founder. Gena and I love literature, and we especially enjoy the writing of Ernest Hemingway. Hemingway was a flawed individual, but he was also a loving father to his son John Hadley Nicanor Hemingway. Ernest thought John looked so much like a plump teddy-bear that he gave his son the moniker Bumby.
Bumby was quite the man, even in comparison to his literary legend father. He loved the outdoors and fishing in particular, and he gave Ernest credit for fostering that love in him. Bumby wrote "I know he wanted me to love fishing and hunting, and I believe that he deliberately set about to make me want to do it on my own initiative. Tennis parents and stage mothers should take note. The kid has got to want to do it, not just to please the parent, but for himself [my emphasis].''
So, that's Bumby - a plump teddy-bear that inspired us to name a service for all your lovely little cubs.
