When suddenly I spied something I've never seen before. Do you see it?

Bears in the News again...

After reading Sandy's bears in the news stories the other day, I ran across one myself.



Black bear raids Colorado candy store: A black bear went in and out of a candy store in the Colorado resort town of Estes Park multiple times early one July morning, but he used the front door and didn't break a thing. He did, however, steal some treats.

So maybe Sandy has something thinking that bears are responsible for stealing those bees.

Then my dad sent me this one "Bear cub saved by fishermen."
Sounds like he is saying bear, bear over and over again. I would have just said grrrr. Grr-bye for now,

Gardening Entry...

I'm kind of combining my gardening entry with updating you on how things are growing. If you remembear, back in the Spring I rescued one the mystery plants from my grandma's tomato patch. She thought she might not get water hauled back to where she had to move them often enough for them to survive as she is having knee and shoulder problems. We planted it in a big black pot, because we didn't have ground space either. I wanted to know if I was right that they were pumpkins.

Bearlympians, beans and farts...

Everyone has been excited about the Teddybear Olympix. There has been great debate over the proper fuel for Beanie's Farting Contest.
The contestants shopped mom's pantry shelf searching for their favorite beans.

Meeting Marlowe...part 2

Grr everybody, I'm feeling bad that Marlowe isn't sharing his pictures at the same time as I am. I hope he's okay, still no answers to emails.  :(

Continuing our exploration of the park during my visit with Marlowe,
I spied a small pond.

Meeting Marlowe...Part 1

Recently a while ago, on a Friday I went on a trip to Wisconsin. This was a trip I was especially looking forward to, and a little nervous about, because we were going to the house where Tucker & Wrigley live. My mom, dad, grandma & grandpa had a graduation party to attend. Turns out the party was beary beary close to the town where Marlowe lives. So, I invited my little brother Scruffy to come along. My mom emailed Marlowe's mom as soon as she knew we were going to Wisconsin for sure and they planned for Marlowe and me to meet-up.

Saturday morning my mom, dad, me & Scruffy went to a McDonald's for breakfast. Scruffy and me, well, we had to wait in the car, humph! While they went inside. We didn't even get a pancake! :( But afterwards mom said we were all going to a park. :)

It's Gooseberry Time...

Well it's that time again. We recently picked the gooseberries. My mom harvested them this year. I'm kind of sad because for many many years my grandpa would come to pick them. But this year he's not feeling well, he just keeps getting slower and older. :(
I weighed the crop. This year we got 5.5 lbs. I think our bush is slowing down too. The biggest crop ever was 12 lbs. Our bush is getting old too. Mom grew it from just a bare root shoot that comes in a box many many years ago.
Here are some of our biggest berries. I hope either grandma of mom make a pie for the 4th of July.

When mom was picking she noticed there were two branches that had touched the ground and begun to take root. So I helped her plant them in a pot.
Hopefully these will grow into two new bushes. The baby gooseberry bushes will be going to our friends in Wisconsin, if they make it.

Hopefully the next time you see me, my post will be my visit to Marlowe.

This is me trying to wait patiently to hear back from him. I hope it's soon.

Grr-bye for now,

Plant detective...

Got a call from grandma the other day requesting my detective skills. I gathered my detective equipment to go to grandma's in such a hurry, I forgot to put my shoes on.
I really wished I had my shoes as I had to go into grandma and grandpa's tomato patch to investigate this case.

What's in a name...

Scruffy popping in to tell you, last night I asked for some ice cream. Look what dad brought upstairs from the freezer.
It's a bear's dream, thick caramel and chocolate covered cashews in chocolate ice cream. It was a dreamy bear hug to this bear's tummy! We never had this brand before. It's my new favorite.

The O'Bears make pie...

Hope you all had a great St. Patty's Day. Our apologies for the lateness of this post. But, as usual me secrebeary was too busy cleaning the house. She had to have a girls night on St. Patty's Day. So, me brother Scruffy O'Bear and me self decided to make them one of those festive green pies. You know, the one we had at grandma's last year.
 I know we already shared the recipe, but this is the first time we've made it. We gathered the ingredients.
