Last fall, we had an abundant crop of apples, but could not sell or use them up fast enough. Every day, my daughter would fill a bucket and toss the spoiled fruit out in the field. The cats loved to chase them, that is, until the deer showed up.

Lynn says: I don't remember who sent me the bear picture. Someone emailed it to me a couple of years ago. It has probably been around the internet for a bit now. I wouldn't know who to give credit to for taking the photo.

Note from Blys: We're sure this is just the sort of picture that Shepard Smith of Fox News would show over and over. He loves bear pictures and videos, especially that one of the bear that fell out of a tree and onto a trampoline. He shows that one as often as he can!

What interesting contacts have you had with animals out in the countrysides?
