This morning I found an email from my Chicago Bear friend Braxton. I must insert a disclaimer here.
He is not a membear of "The Chicago Bears - NFL team", but he is a bear, and he does live in Chicago with other bears.
Braxton saw an article about bears he thought I might like to share here on my blog.
In addition to the article, there are a couple of videos of hibernating black bears.
Hibernating bears 'A Metabolic Marvel' .
To quote Braxton "Now we are asking the big guy to make a new sign for the door on this space in which we sleep: Hibernaculum Yes, hibernaculum. Hummmm….Well, it is about time people hear about how we humble bears are superior."
Braxton, I think that's a great idea to have proper signage there at Bear Tower. Thanks for sharing.
Not all of the bears that live here hibearnate. I bearsonally manage to get by on nightly sleep and an occasional nap. But there is one , Snowbeary, that I've been trying to encourage back into his sleeping den. (the linen closet) I told him he has performed his Snow Dance enough this winter, we are ready for Spring.
I addition to that, since Valentine's Day, I've been trying to figure out
who my secret admirer is. Hope you all had a Happy Valentine's Day!
One more thing, last night I was visiting my friends at The Many Adventures of Jerry and Ben . To my surprise I found that Jerry, a budding bear artist, had drawn my portrait. Great job Jerry, and thanks for the honor.
Grr-bye for now,
