Scrapefoot & The Three Bears

Happy Folklore Thursday from our own HOME AND HEARTH!

Having breakfasted on porridge, we turn to a famous homely story which we've blogged about before: THE THREE BEARS! Here's Brother Bernard's fireside retelling... SCRAPEFOOT AND THE THREE BEARS!

As mentioned above, and in the video, there's no Goldilocks in this story – that was a misogynistic addition by Victorian storytellers! Instead, prepare to meet SCRAPEFOOT THE FOX!

Maybe one day, when all this isolation is out of the way, ee cn head up to Keiss in the Highlands, where we set this old yarn, and find the Three Bears' house for ourselves! But until then, enjoy Brother Bernard's latest retelling – and keep safe!
