Good morning everyone and Happy Monday! It’s snowing this morning and cool, the temp is staying right around the freezing mark. The snow is melting on the streets so far, starting to build up on my deck, but only about an inch. Seems the main part of that snowstorm is missing us. Which is okay with me. I’m late this morning because I had to go shopping. And it’s snowing. On April 12th. Actually that really isn’t unusual, it just seems like it since we had such an early spring. So you don’t expect it to snow. But it always does happen. We can get snow like this in May. Quite often. Oh well. Just means I get to stay inside and clean today.
But because it’s snowing I decided that some nice bright and cheery summer pictures were a good thing to have today. I have probably shown these flowers before, but I don’t think I have used these particular pictures before. Besides, they’re bright and cheery. I think that perhaps I may have come up with an idea to beat Bert and Bouncer. I named the big one Bouncer, just seemed to fit his size quite nicely. I used to have a deer which I also named Bouncer, he was a 12 point buck and also the biggest deer I have ever seen. He was far bigger than any of the other bucks around at the time, which included two 8 point and a 10 point buck, plus some younger bucks and does. Anyway, that’s for another story.
So this bear is also named Bouncer. Though I don’t plan on getting friendly with this one like I did with Bouncer the deer. Not a chance. I have seen his teeth and claws. People tell there’s nothing to worry about, bears run from people. That’s true. But they omit one very important word, bears “normally” run from people. Notice the difference. I’m going to write a bit about bears in another post. They are interesting wild animals. Notice how I put the word “wild” in there. Oh well. I just have to remember to bring my feeders inside “before” it gets dark. I put another important word in there. That one’s for me. Because I keep forgetting that important point. Sigh. I think Muffin needs to write another post so she can talk about these things. Have a wonderful day everyone and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
