Bears Beat the Heat

If you go down to the pool today, you’re in for a big surprise!

If you go down to the pool today, you will not believe your eyes!

If you dive in, you’ll never climb out–

There should’ve been given a warning shout:

“Today’s the day the teddy-bears do their swimming!”

  1. It’s time to make three fur coats. One adult size, and two children’s.

    It wouldn’t be so cute, if you were swimming, and those three slipped in unannounced right behind you. Yeah, that mama bear would just be protecting its cubs as it ate you. But there is good news, you would still get a fur coat and be able to wear it all year round, as you stroll through the woods with your two cubs.

  2. We have monkeys, two types of water buffalo. Small deer. Giant bats with six-foot wingspans. And a few other small kinds of mammals, at least one species of eagle, and snakes. Plus, an overpopulation of dogs, cats, pigs, chickens, ducks, along with a few rare birds.

    There are hand sized spiders. I met one the third day I was here during my first visit. And maybe, monster movie sized spiders. We were driving our van to a beach-side resort, heading north alongside of the ocean. I don’t drive; I always have a driver. I was sitting in the passenger seat watching the scenery; when I saw it scurrying across the paved road. It was just far enough in the distance, that I could not make a positive identification. I could judge its size by the width of the road and yellow center line.

    The driver also saw it. I asked him, “Did you see that?
    “Yes!” He responded. I stated: “Did that look like a giant spider to you?”
    He replied. “Yeah.”

    To this day, I still don’t know what it was, but it was large, and big enough to give you nightmares, even during the day, if you came across it while hiking in the woods or cutting your grass in the backyard.

  3. Ah, someone who remembers Big Jon and Sparky (“No School Today”)! What a great radio show that was.

    1. I was only nine when that show went off the air, but I don’t think I ever heard it. My mother wasn’t much for radio.
