Well I made through another weekend of football in Packer Country without getting into trouble. LOL. Still been lying low on that one.
I thought that once I made my move I would have lots of down time, and be able to spend more time here, but life has not let up. If it's not one
thing, it's another. Today, I am waiting for my generator to kick on. Can't live up here without one. At least I can't.
I have a cool story to share.
When you live up here you expect to ocassionally run into wildlife, and talking to folks that have lived up here all their lives, some say they have
never had an encounter with bears. 3 years ago or so I saw one late at nite while driving. (Acutally I never saw it, just a pair of big orange
eye's looking out of the woods when my head lights hit them. But that was alittle unnerving)
Anyway, Monday I was coming back from a friends house, as I am driving, I see ahead of me in my perifeal (sp) I see this (not big, but not small)
black ball of fur come flying down the hillside along the road. Man this guy was booking it. I hit my brakes, he ran across the road and continued
down a logger road.
HOLY COW. I just saw a bear in the middle of the day.
Come to find out, on the other side of this hill, there is a bear den. (which I found out from a women at the gas station) She goes on to tell me,
that what I witnessed was a addolesent bear being kicked out of the den by the sow, because she is getting ready to have another litter.
WOW, this is less than a mile from my house. I just thought this was sooo cool. It really doesn't scare me, because I know that they see us and
smell us before we see them. And they really don't want to interact with us. Unless they are sick.
So I may have some more bear stories as winter sets in.
Well, I am glad everyone is doing O.K.
I am following this Ebola thing. Even though they say they have it under control, the fact that this guy was sent home the first time, tells me,
the best laid out plans don't always go as you would like.
Peace to all.
