We have a new letter at the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge.
The letter is 'B' and I have chosen the word bear. Now bear with me while I tell you this story and I will try just to write the bear facts.
This is no ordinary picture of a black bear. My husband took this picture from one of our bedroom windows. She was probably 10 feet away and weighed around 400 pounds. No, I did not get close enough to sex this bear myself. So how did I know it was a female? Because she brought two cubs with her. The amazing thing was that this family stayed with us most of the summer. We would chase her away and she would come right back and many nights slept under the bedroom window. The lesson I learned this particular summer? Do not feed the deer - they bring their friends!
This was our last up close and personal encounter with a bear. A young one, old enough to leave its mom and young enough to be a real nuisance . This picture was taken from my craft room window . She was as startled to see me as I was to see her and no, she is not pole dancing. She just tried to climb my bird feeder pole and oops over it went!
So that's my story and now you know when you visit me, just don't be surprised if you come face to face with a bear. And whatever you do - don't feed them!!
Thanks for your visit and all your nice comments.
