Went outside tonight to try to cool Liberty down. After the heat of the day and baking a cake on top of that, the house was an oven. I mean hot!! So out we go meandering, ” Oh look at the pretty Lillies!”
” Look how well the cabbages are doing!”
” Lets go around and look at the other flowers.”
“Lets go running back inside and hope the bear doesn’t follow us!!!! ”
As we wandered around the corner of the house we startled a young black bear. Now I was raised in bear country. Quite honestly you adjust to having them around. You know that they are there and you become accustomed to that knowledge. The same way that some people in different parts of the country know to watch for snakes or alligators. It’s part of life. That being said, I was not expecting one in the backyard. In the year that we have lived here I have only seen one bear up on the mountain so finding one here caught me off guard. So if some of the pictures are blurry I’m not ashamed to say that it took my hands a little bit to quit shaking!
Goodnight, sleep tight, don’t let the
bears , um, bedbugs bite!
