Trick-or-Treat … or, Where is Goldilocks?

HIt all started with a little evening apple cider. I had just finished blowing the leaves off of the drive and porch, even cleared the neighbor’s drive and walk, with my new battery powered Stihl blower. I was oblivious to what was going on around me, but I should have noticed the ‘girls’, Janie and Daisy, staring at something in the back of the house—good dogs. I poured my cider and went to relax and enjoy the beautiful leaf display on the mountain. I needed a closer picture of the fall foliage when … OMG … the three bears arrived to have walnut appetizers in my back yard! Suddenly a car drove down the gravel road and the Mama bear stood up—over 6 feet tall—and Goldilocks hurried the girls in the house and plans to stay there … till Spring! Mr. ‘P’ says I need bear sensitivity training. You decide!

      Jennifer, the bears have won the battle—i am terrified of them—bear sensitivity training needed. I turned and ran … totally wrong thing to do.

      Frances, thank you for noticing the photos. The cider one was taken before I spotted the three bears—I tried to get one of the bear standing up, but she turned to look at me and I hightailed it back into the house.

      Cindy, I now have an air horn. The bears don’t like loud noises, so I found the noisiest horn I could find.

    OMG Lissy! I bet you were surprised. We have not spotted any bear yet over our way! The photos were great and I liked the one of the apple cider on the green table!
