They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Unfortunately I did not have my camera but I'll have it with me at this time next week. Coming home traveling south on Sante Fe on the East side I see 3 trash cans provided by Waste Management full to the rim with trash and the lids open. Alongside them and in between several bags of trash also opened. Behind this line of waste is a corral full of little pigmy goats. Granted this is probably the end of the driveway but nothing like ringing the dinner bell.

The late great Chuck Collins of the old 11 Mile General Store owned cabins where I always stayed when playing hooky. Very late one night I walked out to grab something from the car. The porch light was out so I didn't see the 400 pound bear sitting on the ground facing me right next to my car. I performed an immediate vertical pogo jump of 4 foot 180 with a twist(of my drawers). Immediately sober. Slept with one eye open all night. Walked out to go fishing before dawn(carefully). This bear completely turned over one of those industrial steel dumpsters with locking bar that Chuck had purchased specifically to prevent bear/trash problems. He pried the weakest opening and successfully got in and out for a meal of some kind. It took 3 of us to turn it back over. Surprised he didn't break into my car which had fish in the cooler, bloody coveralls and open bags of Fritos and popcorn.
