I was on the phone with my mom last night and I was sort of zoning out and staring out the window when I saw this black thing humping its way up a tree in the woods. I looked again and realized that anything that size and that black must be a bear. Then I heard our dog going ape nuts outside so I ran out and got her and ran back inside just in time to see a sow run across the drive followed by one two three FOUR cubs! My first wild bear sighting! I'm delerious with excitement. This would explain why my compost pile is being turned so regularly. Whee!
