Bear With Me
Forgot to mention our encounter with a bear, yes a BEAR! Now I will admit that we do live in a fairly wooded area, and animal encounters get reported all the time. However, I was still not prepared to be sitting there in my car when an actual bear climbed the fence about twenty feet from where we sat. It was the middle of the day, and all sorts of people were coming and going at the library. The bear did not even seem to notice them. He or she just nosed his way around a play yard, over fence, through a parking lot, and then crossed over a busy street. There didn't seem to be any fear or even a need to hurry (would I be able to recognize bear fear?) on his part. People are not kidding, it does look exactly like a teddy bear.
