First Sign of Spring....

We had our first real sign of Spring this morning....

No, not this....

this...


I was half asleep and I guess it shows I am still a new blogger because I forgot to take a picture of the actual bear in my actual driveway - but you get the idea. Plus I was too busy figuring out how to get DD out to her car so she wouldn't be late for school. We set off the car alarm with the remote, but that only made him come up the stairs and into the backyard... where I guess he hopped the fence and went on his way. Yes, that is life in the (quasi) country - when you hear someone's car alarm, an air horn or all the neighborhood dogs barking, its a sure sign a bear is visiting the neighborhood.

Have a Pieceful Day!

Wow! How exciting and cool! Funny -- my first sign arrived this morning too -- our duck couple is back home! Not nearly as exciting as a hungry bear LOL!

Oh my gosh, a bear in your backyard, you must live in a very rural area. I think I'd go into hibernation if that was in my backyard....lol...

Holy cats! A bear in your backyard! The worst we have ever had was a moose. EEk!

I have the flowers in my yard but not the bear - at least not yet, thankfully.

Yikes - I thought having a litle grass fire across the way was "exciting"....but you win....a bear in the driveway!! Does this happen often????
