So picture this. I'm sitting in the living room writing another "god I hate this rain " status on facebook, because nothing exciting was happening , when I look out the glass door leading to my little deck and there is this beautiful little bear cub snacking away on yesterdays garbage bag! I grabbed my camera and opened up the door , he was leaning up against the door eating, and it scared him away....but only briefly. The allure of stale hamburger buns and coffee grinds was too much for him/her so it came back not minding one bit that I was snapping these pics only a foot away!! Thank goodness just before this I had let my soggy wet dog in and banished him to the basement or I may have missed out on this wonderful experience. Yes Gladys made a mess, ( that's the name I gave my new friend..... I thought it fitting since it was destroying the Glad garbage bags in search of yummies!) But It was totally worth it to see such a beautiful little creature so close. I hope he goes back into the woods and finds it's mom though , I don't want her to find me !!
