It Was a Hot and Sunny

Tuesday afternoon. I'm minding my own business reading She Got Up Off the Couch by Haven Kimmel when the middle son runs in the house yelling, "Bear's back!" I look at the clock, it's like 2:00 p.m. The bear is back? I run outside and sure enough BooBoo is in my neighbor's front yard.

The next picture is out of order because I am a dork. Here he is wandering around my backyard. I took this from the backdoor through the glass. He had been trying to have a nice lie down in a clump of trees and the dogs' barking annoyed him so he got up to apparently walk to my back door to tell the dogs to please do a bear a prop and let him cool off under these here trees and give him a break. They would not shut up so he headed back out front.

Here he is walking across my neighbor's driveway. He saw me standing in my yard snapping pictures and was not in the mood for the papparazzi so I slowly backed away and headed to my porch.

He spies my neighbor's trashcan, ahh a nice afternoon snack. But at this time he did not turn over the trash can, this is when he went in my backyard for the aforementioned lie down. But he wandered back around tumped over the trash can and carried a snack back through my backyard.

Below he is heading behind the clump of palmettos to tear into my neighbor's garbage bag full of nice poopy diapers and milk cartons better than a picnic basket with a pumpkin pie in it.

We stood in my backyard hiding behind the neighbor's fence watching him for about thirty minutes. He wasn't a very happy guy today, I say that because when he saw me, he walked toward me, directly in my path, not around, not to the next house but towards me. I don't blame him, I'd be annoyed too, hot, hungry, a drought probably drying up all his water sources, I gave him some space but was glad to be able to take a few pictures.
The garbage truck came just a few minutes after he tumped the trash can. Good timing or what? I suspect he now lives in the woods behind my house. We're grilling out tonight! Should be fun. Hope he likes brats!
