Bears........

A far more accurate account of the events of that fateful morning....

Baby bear goes downstairs, sits in his small chair at the table.
He looks into his small bowl. It is empty. 'Who's been eating my porridge?' he squeaks.

Daddy Bear arrives at the big table and sits in his big chair. He looks into his big bowl and it is also empty. 'Who's been eating my porridge?!?' he roars.

Mummy Bear puts her head through the serving hatch from the kitchen and yells, 'For God's sake, how many times do I have to go through this with you idiots?
It was Mummy Bear who got up first.
It was Mummy Bear who woke everyone in the house.
It was Mummy Bear who made the coffee.
It was Mummy Bear who unloaded the dishwasher from last night and put everything away.
It was Mummy Bear who swept the floor in the kitchen.
It was Mummy Bear who went out in the cold early morning air to fetch The newspaper and croissants.
It was Mummy Bear who set the damn table.
It was Mummy Bear who walked the bloody dog, cleaned the cat's litter tray, gave them their food, and refilled their water.

'And now that you've decided to drag your sorry bear-asses downstairs and grace Mummy Bear with your grumpy presence, listen carefully, because I'm only going to say this once....



'I HAVEN'T MADE THE F*****G PORRIDGE YET

Re: Bears........

You'll get Grizzly and Black Bears on that trip. It's recommended to wear bells on your clothes and carry pepper spray in Grizzly territory. You should learn the difference between the two species poop, Grizzly poop has bells in it and tastes peppery.

Re: Bears........

Very funny....especially as I have a baby bear and a daddy bear just like that at home!!

For a small price I am sure I could arrange some photo sessions It will certainly be cheaper than Calgary !

Re: Bears........

Went to the northern part of Minnesota with my son and couldn't understand why there were all these bags hanging high in the trees!! No not poop bags as in the uk but the campers food bags.

Re: Bears........

Around here some people have bear resistant garbage cans. I say bear resistant not proof as a bear ripped one open a month or so ago. Probably the big male that's about and not the 18 month old that's making a nuisance of itself at the moment.

Re: Bears........

I would love to see some bears in the wild; especially some of those salmon fishing shots.
