Bear trouble again

 We have bears again they are coming down for the fish and fruit. Not as bad as where we used to live but I still don't like it. Mamma bear and three cubs on the road this morning outside our park, the police were trying to get them to go back off the road. A big old male wandered through yesterday and a couple of yearlings sighted across the road.

I went walking a couple of evenings ago with one of my new walking buddies and we saw a bear up an apple tree a bit too close for me although she laughed at my fears, I wish I was more confident around them but they are so unpredictable.  Taken to carrying my bear banger, it sounds like a shotgun but doesn't hurt them.

Off to Calgary early tomorrow morning, doing a round trip run and then on to Vancouver on Sunday, helping move son #3.

Oh, oh, oh can you please bring me a Calgary rodeo shirt home for me? I get it. Too expensive, too much trouble, it's cool.

Have a pleasant and safe drive through. Winks.

I believe I would be pretty uneasy with the bears that close too. Can't be too careful.
sounds like you have some busy days ahead. Hope the move goes smoothly.

I would be packing two bear bangers for my walks if I lived there. Ha. I look forward to hearing about your trip to Calgary and to Vancouver. Vancouver is one of my most favorite places.
