Mother-in-Law’s Bear Necessities

August 27th, 2007 · No Comments

Got an email from the in-laws this morning. . . that is the edge of Bob and Kathy’s lawn in Southern Colorado. Bob snapped the photo from the kitchen window and had this to say: It has been a “wild week” here in our backyard. The black bear photos were taken an hour ago. He […]
