|Blogs > chuchotte2 > Just my little place|
Last night I was sitting here, glancing every now and again out my bedroom window, watching the Doe and her two babies eating from my apple trees in the back yard, such a pretty sight they are.
This little family has been coming by now for a few weeks now and she is a real joy to watch and I took pictures
This morning was slightly different though, my son comes running into my room insisting that I get up and hurry to come and see what was in the backyard early this morning.
Jumping out of bed, still in haf dreamstate I hurry out into the dinning room and look out the patio door and what do I see? A mother black bear with her three cubs, all running towards the apple trees and in a flash, the three cubs where at the top of the tree eating from the top, the mother standing on her hind legs eating from the bottom.
Wow, what a sight to wake up to first thing in the morning and yes, I got pictures. The dog was barking up a storm but that did not seem to bother her in the least, neither the fact that I stepped out of the house to take the pictures.
It was beautiful but also raised concern for me, seeing this is the first time I had ever seen one up close and why were they in the village, a place that they do not normally go, only one answer came to mind.
They are hungry...
My thoughts then wandered to last night, when my son and my niece and nephew were outside playing, riding their bikes and such and fear of course gripped me, so a phone call was made to make the authoroties aware of the situation at hand.
So how has your Saturday morning started off?

i spent the morning painting ... not art just walkway railing|
i like your morning better
S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo.

Hello...This post is to remind you about the Blogger's Convention scheduled October 21,22,23 and set for the ChicagoLand area(Bolingbrook--a suburb) |
It is a chance for you to meet the folk that you have been reading, commenting, and chatting with. Before we go any further, this is NOT a giant sex orgy but a chance to interact with your new found blogging friends face-to-face.
The opening night festivities are still in the planning stage.(I need to have an actual head count on that before I can proceed and make commitments to the banquet facility. But in the plans are a Masked Ball--expected to be a lavish formal affair)
The 46 Zone Party will be held on the evening of the 22nd at the 46 Zone bar attached to the Ditka Dome(enclosed sports dome facility with an indoor driving range) Typically the bar has a live band on Saturday nights (no cover charge to date) The food and drink costs there are reasonable and one can imbibe for about twenty bucks.
There will be an "after" party on the 21st after the Masked Ball; and a "before" and "after" party on the 22nd in the hospitality suite at the hotel to continue on with the festivities. These parties will have food and alcohol/soft beverages and will be bought in bottle form with appetizer platters from local stores. The bar in the hospitality suite would be a serve yourself type of set-up.
The hotel is new and nicely furnished. Complimentary breakfasts are included with the room; the hotel has a pool, workout facility, complimentary wi-fi service, in-room coffee makers, mini refrigerators, iron & ironing board, and laptrays to support your laptops. There is a complimentary coffee bar located off the lobby area which is available 24 hours for a selection of coffees, teas, and hot chocolate. Hotel rates are reasonable and information can be found at Convention Information Pictures of the hotel and its rooms are also available for you to see.
In the works is a photo session opportunity as well as some classes/demos.
If you have not already done so, you are also invited to join bloggers of this friendly site The group was designed to address the technical aspects of blogging, but has metamorphosized into something much more--a "family" of bloggers...many of who will be attending the upcoming Convention.
Thank you for your time and I hope to meet you in person.

That is so wonderful... the Lord was not only amazing in his creation of women, but so many other wonderful creatures on this planet! Now if only man would stop destroying it!|
Now not to be a downer but I read of a woman in Northern Ontario that was killed by a bear while camping with her husband! So as they used to say on Hill Street Blues... let's be careful out there!
