It is a beautiful fall day. We aren't likely to have many more before the weather turns colder and the snow starts to fall.
So why am I letting the kids stay inside all day, watch tv and drive me nutty?
Why aren't they outside enjoying the gorgeous weather?
We have a visitor.
He has taken up residence under our back deck.
He growled at us for being on the deck.
Ben and our neighbor Kelly went to the next block, went into the neighbor's back yard and snapped these shots over the fence.
Yes, it is a bear. And he has moved in.
Animal control will not remove the bear unless he becomes aggressive, kind of late then, don't you think?
So for now we have a new member of the family. We have named him Bruce, Bruce the Bear. Hopefully he will move out soon, he keeps making gigantic poop in our yard.
