Some days you get the bear, some days . . .

I ran into Jim Gainey at the Eastport Market. Would I like to see who came to visit his side yard on East Torch Lake Drive? I suspected I would. He whipped out his cellphone and showed me The Bear Who Came to Dinner. Naturally I obtained a copy for you.

Jim Gainey's bear

The Bear was employed in dismantling a bird feeder, but Jim felt it prudent to keep his distance. There have been other reports of local bear sightings, but this is the only photo I have, and besides, I’m reasonably sure Jim’s a credible witness. Miss Sadie and the Cowboy have been telling me that Something Is Out There, but I have been ignoring them on the assumption that A Raccoon Is Out There. I may have to rethink.
