"Have your camera ready..."

I was at work when I got the text from my husband.

"Have your camera ready - they changed the Bear."

Oh good grief, what now?

As I made the 45 minute commute home, various bizarre and demented visions danced through my head.

Spring flowers?


Pink Flamingos?




Well... at least they picked the right team.

As if his humiliation was not complete

An Easter Basket?



Come on...


These people have no shame.

On behalf of humanity I apologize to bears everywhere.

Spring Makeover

Ahh, Spring.

Time to put the winter duds away and freshen up your look for the warmer weather.

So the Bear got a makeover. New face paint, bright red lipstick and a ring of perky daffodils.

Just what every bear needs.

I wonder if our neighbor ever thought when he grew up, he'd be putting lipstick on a wooden bear. Isn't that every little boy's dream?

You're never fully dressed without a smile...

Actually before they painted, I was on my way to the store and I saw the neighbor's wife out there with a garden hoe digging around the bear's feet. I was so tempted to slam on the brakes and snap a pic...

How perfect would that have been? I could've titled the post "Ho'in for the Bear."

I really need to become a ninja photographer...
