When we bought the cabin last year it came with quite a few bears….bear lamps, bear pictures, bear soap dish…..you get the picture. They are all inside bears, so we thought we needed a bear for the outside too.
I have been dealing at the casino to a guy from Minnesota for several years. His name is Hank and when he came to the casino and sat at my table I suddenly remembered that he is a chainsaw artist. So I said “Hank, I am in the market for a bear……did you bring any with you this year?”
He did and here is my blue eyed bear…… which I got at a GREAT price.
While we were at his shop selecting a bear, I saw an eagle with a snake in his talons….and mentioned it to Hank. He was surprised that I said something about it because most women are turned off by the snake.
As we were leaving, Hank said “if you give me $10 for the eagle and snake, it’s yours….he’s been sitting here a long time so if you want it, I’d like to see it go.” OK Hank you’ve got a deal!!
Here he is in all his glory watching over the deck.
As you can see, his beak is not right….in fact our friends The Hunter’s, think he looks like a buzzard. Oh well whatever he is, he’s grown on us and has found a great home in the White Mountains of Arizona!!
