It 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!
