One Big Bear

Probably Common in Alaska
My son and his wife recently traveled to Alaska for a combination business trip and vacation. He sent me a picture that was in one of the local newspapers one day while he was there. I thought I would share with you because my reaction was “That is one Big Bear!”


That bear makes our black bears look a little puny. I glad we don’t have anything like that roaming around our neighborhoods. I can enjoy and tolerate the minor inconveniences caused by squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, possums, and the occasional skunk, but not big bears.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
In my younger days I owned a ‘57 Chevy 57chevyyellow convertible. (My car was just like the one in this picture.) On one trip to the Smoky Mountains, a friend and I came back to the car from a short hike, and found a full grown black bear on the front seat of my convertible, I had left the top down. The bear was enjoying some food we had left in the car. When I saw him, I wasn’t happy, but all the sightseers were having great fun. With a little persuasion I got the bear to leave, to the disappointment of the crowd that was around my car.
Note: Beverly and I owned that car for a few years after we were married. I had gotten rid of the “bear smell”. I sure would like to have that Chevy now. It would be worth a big bundle.

Quote of the Day
It's pretty hard to tell what does bring happiness.  Poverty and wealth have both failed.

Joke of the Day

My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.

She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 160 in about 3 seconds."

I bought her a bathroom scale.

And then the fight started......
