There’s a Bear! WHERE? Over there!! : A Has nothing to do with anything Post


I am certain that my great-grandparents are finding my heart-pounding excitement incredibly amusing.  But we in suburbia do not get wild beasts bigger than woodchucks or more troublesome than rabbits.  So the sighting of the resident Mama Bear, reported to be parenting two cubs, is a source of glee and concern.  Birds call frantic alerts.  Parents hustle little kids off swings.  Deck-bound neighbors share amazed exclamations and lawn-cutting husbands are alerted to potential company–after a few documentary shots.

The stories and photographs that I share on this blog are my intellectual property. While I do my very best to provide well researched posts, I do not pretend to have reached genealogical proof standards. Therefore, much of this work is to generate conversation among interested parties. If you would like to share my work or my records, please contact me: dkaysdays (at) gmail (dot) com.

This bear has been seen in several contiguous neighborhoods, and most likely keeps her base in the nearby State Park. Beautiful, isn’t she?
