It’s my 3 3/5 Birthday !!

Birthday 2017

Wowz.  It is hard to believe it is already my Birthday.  Seems last time I posted it was Christmas.  What happened to the rest of the year?

My mommy/editor keeps telling me that the older you get the faster the time goes by.  I guess she must be right (at least when it comes to this).

Sorry it’s been so long since I was on here but after daddy “left” (I don’t like to say the D word even tho mommy says it would be good if I did), I just hadn’t felt like saying much.  I think I am ready to get back on the blog horse because I know my millions of fans have really felt let down.

I couldn’t miss letting you all know about my Birthday.  It is always a GREAT day.  First I went shopping with mommy and stopped to get a special drink and a Birthday Cake Pop.

Then we went for a ride and mommy let me drive!!!  OK she helped a bit with the pedals and steering, but I did all the other stuff.  I am really getting good at that driving thing.  I may have to “borrow” her keys one of these days and take it out by myself with my other friends.  Yeah…I think that would be a great idea.

Best of all, tonight the whole country has a fireworks display in my honor.  Mommy already has the TV set to the right station and we are going to sit and watch them.

Thanks to all my fans for being patient with me for not posting, but I think I am going to be doing it a lot more in the future.

Happy Birthday to me,  Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday dear James Bear, Happy Birthday to me.

addendum…poot, I forgot mommy was my editor and she just told me she read about my plans to borrow the car.  I think she hid the keys somewhere.  Oh well…I shall find them….snicker……

 

Who goosed the moose?

It’s just not fair! A driver out on a lonely Norwegian road swerved to miss a moose on Wednesday and wound up hitting a bear instead.  The bear got away, but was bleeding, so no one knows how badly it was hurt in the accident.

Norway is home to five million people, 100,000 mooses (meece?), and 150 brown bears.  Well, maybe 149, now.  So which population could have better afforded to lose a member?  I’ll bet the moose jumped out of the way at the last minute just so that the bear would get run over.

It’s prejudice, that’s what it is.  The driver probably really was out to get the bear from the beginning.  They’re all a bunch of racists over in Norway, you know.  Remember Anders Breivik?  He only went after people when he couldn’t find a bear to kill.

It’s true!  I saw it on the Internet…

Sure, listen to the “man’s” side of the story…

There’s been a lot of news lately about bears, and none of it has been positive.  Normally I’d put the bad news down to a few bears acting out, but the stuff that’s been popping up has just been anti-bear prejudice run rampant.  For example,  last month an Alaskan hiker named Ben Radakovich was mauled by a bear.  All the headlines wanted to talk about was the mean old bear attacking the innocent hiker.  But the fact is, it was Ben’s fault — he started it by scaring the bejesus out of a little bear cub who wasn’t hurting nobody.

Naturally, when the cub ran and told it’s mommy, she went back and had a little talk with Ben about his social skills.  Did Ben apologize?  No he didn’t.  He climbed a tree and called the police.  I ask you: is that any way to solve a problem?  Darn tootin’ it’s not.

You know, I’ve got relatives in Alaska.  For all I know, that might have been a cousin of mine.  I think I’ll give them a call.  Maybe it’s time for me to take a vacation in Alaska and look up this Radakovich fellow and give him a piece of my mind.  What kind of name is that, anyway?  He doesn’t even sound American to me.  Do we need a bunch of foreigners coming over here and attacking our children?  I didn’t think so…
