View From My Window

Sunday, September 11, 2022 — I believe more than any other time in our history, this day will remain the pivoting point for safety and freedom from attacks by foreign countries. It never occurred to the majority of us that someone would dare to attack us. But they did, and we will forever remember that.

The only other thing to note for this post is the fact that we had a bear visit our front yard this morning. I couldn’t believe my eyes! I’d seen posts on FaceBook from other residents here in Tehachapi, and I even spotted a bear crossing the street a couple of weeks ago, but to see it prowling through my neighbor’s trash was quite a sight.

I realize the image is hard to discern, but he’s there… in all his 400+/- pound glory! I’ll be calling the local office of California State Fish and Wildlife tomorrow. I saw posts on FaceBook that they don’t relocate bears anymore, they destroy them. I’ll ask about that when I call. I really wouldn’t want the bear destroyed, but don’t want him in my front yard, either.

Please be safe, take care of yourself and continue to use precautions against COVID when you’re out and about. And remember to tell those you love that you love them, and do it often.

Happily married and retired, my hobbies are quilting, reading and anything to do with trains (watching, photographing and running them in our G scale garden railroad). My husband and I have truly enjoyed our retirement, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

    So much development is depriving wildlife of its habitat and native food sources.

      Too true… we’ve been here 15 yrs. and this is the first year we’ve seen bears roaming the streets/back yards. What surprises me is all of the open land around us. I have to think the need for water is what’s driving them. And, as they find more and more sources of available food (i.e., people leaving their trash cans outside where a bear can easily get to the contents), they’ll continue to make neighborhoods their territory. I’ve seen posts, however, of the damage done by bears breaking into buildings (tearing screens, breaking windows) just to get to foodstuff.
