Look who tried to come to dinner ......

Happy Monday Blogland neighborhood! Well early this morning was Moonbeams Boy Matt's knee surgery. It was same day surgery, so he was home by noon. Well, by 4 pm the pain really REALLY started to kick in, so things have been a bit stressful here at MBIAJ Headquarters. To add to today's excitement, we had ..... uninvited guest show up literally at our door !

......this open screen door to be exact .... he came right up on that little side porch and was SNIFFING AT THE SCREEN !!!!!!!

and there he is scurrying back around to the back yard after he made eye contact with me and heard my shrill " HOLY _______ the bear is on the porch !!! "

.....and here he is looking at me with those big brown puppy eyes (he really wasn't a big bear ..... not a cub, but not a full grown one like some of the big 500 pound daddy bears that occasionally come around .... still , I wouldn't want to be on the business end of those claws!!!).

PHEW ..... well, it's been a LONG day ..... time to give Matt some more pain medicine and try to get some sleep around here (except there's some noise outside near the compost bin ..... think Yogi is back for a midnight snack!)

Be back soon!

Wow! I always wanted to see a bear not in captivity, especially when I lived in PA. I'm not really sure why! lol I will pray that Matt has a speedy recovery.

Lately, I have been hearing a lot of news about bears showing up around houses. I like to look at them, but from a DISTANCE and would probably have reacted as you did and maybe even said a WORSE word....if I saw a bear at my screen door!!! Good luck to your son with his knee surgery.

Ohhhhhhh my!!!!!!!!!!! and I'm happy to report that I was able to fill in your "blank (LOL) cuz that's probably the exact same thing I would have said had Yogi been staring at me thru the screen door!!! I sure hope today is a better day for Matt ... I said some prayers for him and you and will continue to do so :)
