    Default A Smile for Hump Day 🤭

    Bear Warning

    The Ohio State Department of Fish and Game is advising hikers, hunters, fishermen and golfers to take extra precautions and keep alert for bears while hiking.

    They advise people to wear noise producing devices such as little bells on their clothing to alert but not startle the bear unexpectedly. They also advise carrying pepper spray in case of an encounter with a bear.

    It is also a good idea to watch for fresh signs of bear activity and know the difference between black bear and grizzly bear droppings.

    Black bear droppings are smaller and contain berries and possibly squirrel fur.

    Grizzly bear droppings have little bells in them and smell like pepper spray.

    Chuckling. I bought a bear bear the first time I went to Banff, AB. My husband laughed and said this just calls the bears to dinner.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    I read this to my husband and he said, "Well, I hope all those people are really careful..." and launched into a long diatribe about staying safe from bears!! I read the last two lines to him again and he finally got it! Thanks for the laugh...twice!

    True story: We obtained a one year gold claim here in Northern California, and my husband went to spend the day up there. At some point, he sat on the bumper of our van eating his lunch. A little bear cub crossed the road smack dab in front of him.

    Intelligent man that he is, he immediately realized that he was now in between a bear cub and its mother. He jumped into the van and drove straight home!
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?
