I just want to thank all of you for the wonderful comments wishing me a nice vacation. It was really gratifying and very much appreciated. And thanks everyone for waiting while I took a little break.
I went to the woods. Actually, with the spotty Internet service, I lost a 500 word article I had written for you. After nearly throwing my computer onto a large rock, I calmed down and decided the Gods of the Forest didn’t want me to write, so I stopped.
I saw a bear. Looked like a yearling, the size of a very large dog. And my brother went jogging on a trail and nearly ran right into mama bear, all six feet of her on her hind legs. Instead of backing away slowly, like you’re supposed to, he turned around and ran right back where he came from. Glad he’s still alive.
Actually, they’re black bears which, as I understand it, rarely attack people.
And no, I didn’t shoot anything. I’m originally from New York City. We don’t hunt. The only hunting I was exposed to there involved people shooting at other people.
Anyway, glad to be back with you all.
