We arrived home tonight (sigh.)

It’s always good to get home and there’s nothing like being greeted by meowing, purring furballs winding happily and frantically about your travel-weary legs… but… but… I miss the trees (sniff.)

Well, back to reality and my regularly scheduled sketching tomorrow.

Meanwhile, allow me to share another photo or two.

…and bears, oh my!

March 10, 2008



Conversation, last night, after arriving at Sequoia National Park’s Wuksachi Lodge.

Linda: “Did we get all the food out of the trunk? I don’t want to wake up to bears raiding our car.”

Tom: “Yes, we got it all.”

Linda: “Are you sure? Because bears can smell any little thing. Even gum.”

Tom: “I think we’ll be fine honey.”

Linda: “Wait, there are some vitamin waters left in the cooler.”

Tom (slightly less patient): “It’ll be fine.”

Linda (becoming slightly shrill): “Bears can smell through plastic. Rangers told me that once.”

Tom: Wait a minute, it’s winter. Aren’t bears supposed to hybernate in winter?”

Linda: OH YEAH! Hee hee. That’s right… whew.

Linda: “You know there may be some early risers.”

Tom: “Bring the vitamin waters in.”
