So the bear destroyed my shed door for a bag of garbage, had time today to build a new one. Used a 2X4 frame connected with @kregjig pocket holes and covered it with shiplap. I'll wait until a warmer day to paint. I'll have to do the other door too now so they match. #woodworking#kregjig#bears
I thought I’d start #folktaleweek2018 with a local story from here in Gloucestershire for the first prompt ‘Forest’. It’s been told many times in many ways and this is just an outline of the story.
In the late 1800’s four Frenchmen and their dancing Russian bears were travelling through the Forest of Dean after a performance.
They were attacked by a mob of angry locals, enraged by claims the bears had killed a child and injured a woman.
They beat the Frenchmen and killed the bears but in time it was proved that the bears had done no such thing and 13 miners were charged with the attack on the innocent Frenchmen and their bears.
It’s said asking ‘who killed the bears?’ is still a sore-point in Ruardean 🐻
Amazing and "top of Denali cold" day out on the Hudson Bay. We've officially seen all three bears of North America in the wild!!! Scroll through for a teaser video of a polar bear sow with her two yearling cubs. We'll try to get some of Peter's big lens photos up in the next few days.
Also included: my "not impressed" face at having to go back into the cold to get dinner.
