Bear Climbs Tree Stand

Calm Hunter
This video is interesting. Here’s a guy deer hunting on his tree stand when along comes Mr. Bear. I’m sure the hunter is expecting the bear to amble through the area and not be a problem. But, no! Just watch… The hunter  was cool and asked the bear a question and the bear took off. (Thanks for sharing Mark)

It pays to be calm!

How true! For knowledge not to be dangerous we need different viewpoints and lots of wisdom.

Quote of the Day
It is Christmas in the heart
that puts Christmas in the air.

Joke of the Day

A family had twin boys whose only resemblance to each other was their looks. If one felt it was too hot, the other thought it was too cold. If one said the TV was too loud, the other claimed the volume needed to be turned up. Opposite in every way, one was an eternal optimist, the other a doom and gloom pessimist.

Just to see what would happen, on Christmas Eve their father loaded the pessimist's room with every imaginable toy and game. The optimist's room he loaded with horse manure.

On Christmas morning the father passed by the pessimist's room and found him sitting amid his new gifts crying bitterly.

"Why are you crying?" the father asked.

"Because my friends will be jealous, I'll have to read all these instructions before I can do anything with this stuff, I'll constantly need batteries, and my toys will eventually get broken." answered the pessimist twin.

Passing the optimist twin's room, the father found him dancing for joy in the pile of manure.

"What are you so happy about?" he asked.
To which his optimist twin replied, "There's got to be a pony in here somewhere!"

Hi Jim,

I really liked the BEAR video. The bear didn't seem very aggressive did he? Probably wondered what in the world a man was doing standing on a ladder in the middle of the woods.

Hope you & Beverly have a nice visit with Dad & Merry Christmas to you all.
