Ursa Major

I purposefully selected this card today.  The Bear.  The county to west of the area I live, a bear has been spotted roaming about this week.  Whew Wee!  The local news and FB has had daily accounts to keep us all informed.  The local police and reps from the Department of Natural Resources has been tracking and monitoring the Bear.   The DNR has speculated that the bear crossed into Indiana from Kentucky. (did it use a bridge?) We have all been warned not to feed the bear and to keep our distance.  It is like Yellowstone out there; people driving everywhere to get a glimpse of the Bear.  I mean this is big. It is only the second sighting of a bear in Indiana in the last one hundred years.
It has been a nice respite from the political crappola and all the other drama that usually is reported.   
Here is to the Bear.  Long may she/he roam.

  1. Too funny. When Mt. St. Helens blew we lived in Portland. I got a ladder and climbed up on the roof to watch. My neighbor drove all the way to a small town called St. Helens and was hopping mad she couldn't see the mountain from there :)

    1. It has been amusing reading all the FB posts. People are excited. The tv is really beginning to bore people. I too have made the mistake going someplace to see something and been disappointed. Now I just won't get out in those unpredictable crowds that go on the search.

  2. What a wonderful reprieve from all the craziness in the news. :) I hope the DNR keeps it safe from humans!
