Studly Doright and I had a great time hanging out with our daughter and her family in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, last week. We ate a lot, played a bunch of fun games, enjoyed an indoor snowball fight with fake snowballs, played an intense Christmas game, and opened presents.
The week began rather inauspiciously when a bear made him/herself at home in my car, decimating a can of peanut brittle, but doing very little damage to the car. We apparently hosted a considerate bear.
My daughter stepped outside just in time to take these photos on the morning after we discovered the car incident. Wonder if this was our culprit:
The remainder of the trip was bear-free; although, we were on constant guard any time we were outside. Just look at this view from our deck:
I’ll leave you with photos of my loved ones. We sure missed having our son and his family with us this year, but were so happy to be with part of the family after such a stressful year. I needed the hugs.
Hoping your holidays are bear free.
