Time For Bears

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

While on vacation we went to a bear ranch up north that rescues bears, grown and cubs alike and takes care of them. It was plenty of fun and good walking, too!


One of the big guys looking for a snack.




Some of the bears were still trying to wake up for the day.



This was the biggest bear there, he was pretty darn big!



One of the 3 cubs that were there. They were all born in January.



The white pipe is a thick pvc pipe that you can feed the cubs through. We learned that they just love fruit loops, go figure.



This little one liked to get in the bathtub and then start sucking on his paws.



I would normally end this blog with a bear, but that might just be redundant!

    Great pics! Glad to know there is a bear rescue up there. We lately have been having problems with bears sometimes invading the outskirts of the cities looking for food. When they are captured, they are released into a forest away from here.

Doing A Little Better

Sunday, September 02, 2012

Thanks for all the well wishes everyone. I am doing a little better today, but it will take time for this injury to be completely gone. I will be seeing the doctor in the next week or so and if nothing else has helped I can deal with my back then. I just want to be out of pain.

Recovering From A Door Jam

Saturday, September 01, 2012

I have not been doing as much as I would like to be doing since I hurt my back a few days ago. I was walking out into the garage and the step I was on moved under me and my ankle twisted and I fell into the storm door with all my weight hitting my back into it full force. Major ouch! I don't recommend doing it. The middle of my back hit the bar on it, somehow I didn't bruise from that part. I'm lucky that the glass didn't break and cut me to ribbons. I can't wait for the pain to go away so I can get back to normal.
