Also I have been getting out more, walking down to the village and back, but soon the bears will be out and I am too jumpy to walk around here then. I think I might drive down to the village and walk around a bit down there although there isn't much to see but I am less likely to run into a bear there, although they do come into the village but more often at night. When I first moved here I thought the wildlife at the back door wonderful but now having bears constantly in the area has lost its appeal and it seems they are getting more aggressive each year. I wonder if global warming has something to do with it.
This afternoon I had to go help at the library, again!. I gave up the position over a year ago but they still need me to come down and sort things out, I told them this has to be the last time as I won't be here next winter at all.
