This Bears Some Thought...
I am having to re-think my river walking route, since talking to some locals who have spotted two bears in the area. One large black bear and one smaller brown bear. Bears don't usually bother with humans and I've never had a problem with them while walking the river. Cougars are another story. (Not older women dating younger men. I have no problem with that. I'm talking mountain lions here. Big, big cats that will maul you. Then eat you.)
The issue at hand is this: if I happen to spook one, or it still has this year's cub with it, one of these bears will leave you alone if you are very still (play dead) and one will just start to eat you. The problem is, I can't remember which is which. I think it's the brown bear that will eat you....I think. You don't really want to be wrong on this though.
So....I am starting a new walking route tomorrow.
Some other things I've been thinking about are as follows:
1. How much I love Carnation's Chai Spice coffee creamer, and how I can't wait until their Pumpkin Spice creamer comes out. (Yes, I know this stuff is 99.9% chemicals - but a girl has to have her vices.)
2. How I wish I had the time or the inclination to bead - because this is really pretty and I'd like to do this to my lampshades!
3. Does Mrs. B have any limbs not injured yet? (Giggle)
4. How much I love these cheap little "Sasquatch" Composition Books I bought in the back-to-school bins. They are 100% recycled, they fill my need to surround myself with blank notebooks, and you get to search for a Sasquatch hidden somewhere on the cover! Seriously great buy! I bought mine at Walmart - but you can check them out here.
