momma and her little ones ~ notice how momma just picked that big ol' stump out of the ground
full bellies ~ time for a catnap
a coyote passing through
Mr. Shaggy in the process of removing the rock to get at the buried stump ...
... even the crows and the squirrel have to get in on the action
So that's what's roaming around in my back yard these days. Pretty cool if you ask me.
I just love being able to live so close to nature ~ but it can also have some drawbacks ... such as keeping your grill good and clean so the bear aren't up on the deck checking things out ... and bringing in the bird feeders at night so the bear aren't eating them up and smashing the begeebees out of them ... and making sure the deck door is LOCKED so you don't have unwelcomed visitors of the natural kind wander into the house. It also makes you VERY cautious when going for a walk. The big bear doesn't scare me much, but I am leery of the protective momma when she has cubs and I also don't trust that ugly wolf that is full of mange and losing his hair. I always carry a very hard oak stick when walking the trails... not that it would do me much good I suppose in a charging situation... but it just makes me feel better.
Here's a pic of my stick that I took last winter ~ that's why there's snow in the photo... lol ... NO it didn't snow here this week.
Last night I had fried up some fish and some potatoes with bacon and onions for supper. I told Sam he better make sure the bear have something in the stump because I didn't want them checking out the good smell coming from the house. So far... cookies are keeping them happy.
Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
