Grin & ‘Bear’ It!



Today in southwestern Ontario, we awoke to another bout of swirling snow. A persistent winter monologue droning on and on. Blah, blah, blah… Collectively speaking, I’m coining it “a monotony of snow,” ranking right up there with a slither of snakes in popularity.

It’s hard to ramp up the enthusiasm to take pics. Yippee, another beautiful little goldfinch in the snow. One more shot of the adorable dog – sprinkled with white – and bored out of his canine mind. What seemed a beautiful, pristine winter landscape at Christmas is now just cold and mostly colourless. Yawwwwwnnnnn…


Wait a sec. What’s this? Company on the back deck?

A polar bear?! I kid you not !
This marvellous guy (or gal) is truly a work of nature. No helping hands involved.

Imagine that! I must have been snow blind not to see him there… stretched out big as life… right outside the back door.

    My new consolation about all the snow is this: “At least it’s not dirty grey slush!” And – “It makes the sun seem even brighter! How long do you think that little consolation will last, though? (smile)
