THE ALIEN MOTHER HAS LANDED!

What is he doing on this beach? Surely he doesn't think he is going to join our party? Oh-LOOK-he is a carrier pigeon and he has a message on his leg. What-can it be????There was a black bear spotted in Ruston!!! He was looking for "Bear Accommodations" when he stopped by the Fairfield Inn. Upon looking in the door he found it too luxurious and moved on down the road. Bearly able to cope with all the attention and fuzzy on directions, he caused quite a stir in Russ Town.
The Yankees and Aliens seem to be still showing up and sticking around. We suggested they try to walk to Mexico this morning. Hungry pangs around lunch stopped that march and they were back for another "Feeding Frenzy".

We looked down the beach and found "Grizzly Adams" walking up to our chairs. Back pack, beard, and floppy hat, Grizzly appeared from the frontier to the East.


There was a purple flag flying today which indicates "Marine Life". There was a "Visitor" that floated by and cleared everyone out of the water. Later in the day the boys had a proper burial for a jelly fish who dared to intrude upon our turf.



Tonight after watching the sunset, the "Alien Mother" landed and joined the other aliens. The little aliens seemed to be delighted that there Mother arrived.




An evening complete with full stomachs for all, we enjoyed seeing the Little Aliens with sparklers while we all hummed "Stars & Stripes Forever".





We reloaded "The Pigeon" and sent him off with tales of Sand, Sea & Sun for those at home. No Bears here-thank goodness-but alas we are dealing with our own "Wildlife"
The Folette Pottery Chip & Dip plate is waiting-Don't forget to make your comments!

last night was very late to post so this is yesterdays comment. You all keep multiplying. July it is and the heat is on. Good to see the flock in the water to cool off. beware of sharks. Johnathon sea gull is looking for a friend. Beautiful sunshine here. God sure is good isn't He. Even a fallen creation declares His handiwork. ENJOY!

After all the bear news, I dreamed I was riding a giraffe to Choudrant and got bucked off. So--if you see a stray giraffe East of Ruston, it's mine. Giraffes are pretty tall, so I'm quite sore from the fall.

the bear was held captive even though there is a constitutional right to bear arms?

Your Grizzly Adams looks just like my husband when he has his beard grown in.
