The MASSIVE cleanup has morphed into an archeological dig. I found bear remnants in a bag from over 20 years ago. I have run across this bag of bear parts on many occasions but finally decided that it would be better to have a bear than bear parts. He's fully jointed and stands about 6 inches. There were many things I had forgotten about making jointed bears, so it was not an easy surgery. And he looks a bit scared because this was his first time outside. But I think he will be ready for full release sometime in the spring.
Meanwhile, Tommy called me to attend quite a few staff award banquets yesterday. But with neither food nor awards, I'm going to continue to call them staff meetings.
