Sad, Sad, Sad

The East Bear Island community lost two fine residents and friends Saturday evening. We visited Hal and Karin on Columbus Day to say good-bye. Sad that it is forever. 🐻

We no longer use Decon. Upon opening at ice-out, we would find the green pellets in many drawers, etc. where the tiny winter residents would secrete them. Also, our dogs might eat any loose ones...

Cost Increase?

My bill for our AB bundle service on East Bear Island is about ten dollars more this month. An interesting charge is $1.00 for "paper statement fee." 🐻

Out of Sync

We also ocasionally lose our sound on our AB service at our place on East Bear Island. Our biggest complaint is the lack of sync between sound and lip movement on WMUR Channel 9. 🐻

Zoom!

A P-51D flew south past East Bear Island on its return to the Laconia airport this afternoon. It was one of the "hottest" planes of World War II. 🐻

Loony Toons

A parent and two young loons "fished" in front of our place on East Beat Island for more than an hour yesterday. Usually, they pass on by while seeking a tasty morsel or two. 🐻
