This morning, I was sitting at the computer and noticed something outside on the road. I looked up and saw what I thought was a large dog walking past the driveway. (I wasn't wearing my glasses.) Moments later, it was followed not by a human (as I expected), but by another large dog? That's when I realized that two bears were lumbering down the road! I told the kids and ran for my camera. I opened the front door and was just taking the picture when Jack closed the door to prevent Caddie from running out. Of course, he hit my arm with the door, and I got one blurry photo. I started heading outside, but by then, the bears had made a beeline into the woods. Sigh.

Poor photo taken 5/21/12

Well, be thankful that they didn't make a beeline for YOU!

I know, I was picturing the headline: "Crazy Woman with a Camera Gets Mauled by Bears."
