Happy Winnie the Pooh Day! On this day in 1882, A. A. Milne (the creator of Winnie the Pooh) was born. A. A. Milne wrote the Pooh stories for his son, Christopher Robbin. That's A.A. Milne and his son in the picture on the left. Come in to the deli to get some coloring pages, word search games and some honey filled specials for lunch.
