A Bear's Illustrated Tale
by Sweet Susie Bear (guest blogger)
My name is Sweet Susie Bear. My human adopted me after the tragic loss of Ginger Bear. I've seen pictures of Ginger Bear,but I never met her. I had other humans but they decided that it was time for me to find a new home so they sold me when they sold the garage. Well, OK, I left with my new human before I found out whether the garage was actually sold but that is why they call it a "garage sale," isn't it?
My human started taking me places and taking my picture, well, most of the time. Lately, though, she forgot to take my picture, so I've been sitting in a tote bag, feeling kind of forlorn and forgotten. Today, though, was a different story. My human was told by a friend of hers about this huge supply of ripe raspberries. They were ready to be picked and eaten. Mmmmmm, raspberries.What a treat... and in October!
Well here is my story:
|It was a warm October day. The sun was shining, and the Great Outdoors were beckoning for me to come on out and to explore the Big, Wonderful World.|
|I found out that autumn is spectacular. It looks like somebody poured a big can of red paint on this tree.|
|A little bear gets tired when she's on a walk with a walking tourist. This tree stump had all sorts of moss growing on it, which made it a nice, soft seat.|
|I'm not sure about these old, decrepit-looking stalks but, when my human and I were out for our walk, we saw them all over the place, covering up mailboxes and light poles.|
|Along the way, we found the Last Rose of summer. Sort of like the song, which you can hear if you click me. This is Celtic Woman offering a sweet rendition of this song.|
|Here is one of the more unusual pumpkins. My human said that she will go back to Pumpkin land and see if she can find a better selection.|
|Here is something green and an interesting shape and all sorts of little seeds pop out when you open these shells.|
|Oooh look! Raspberries! But still unripe.|
|Yummy for the tummy! The human picked these and went off in search of more...|
|but she found these instead. She said that they were pretty enough for a picture but that she still wasn't sure about eating them... so she photographed them and kept going...|
