Bears in my town. This makes me nervous. OK, the closest sighting was about 4 miles from my house, but I don't rightly know how far a bear can/wants to walk. I'm hoping that my area of the township is so densely populated that a bear would be too frightened to wander on in.
I cannot believe that in my definitively suburban lifestyle, I'm actually nervous about the possibility of finding a bear in my back yard.
And wait - I've just realized that this weekend I'm supposed to be camping about 4 miles further west of there. Terrific. I'm going to the baseball field for a local fire house, not the uncharted woods. Modern sprawl is affecting me very adversely, today.
