There is a lot in this world that I do not understand.
I fully admit that.
We live in a beautiful place here in Connestee Falls complete with wildlife galore. It is a beautiful and wonderful thing. I try to be smart about living with nature but sometimes I have a lapse in judgment.
Usually it is when I am forgetful and forget to take the bird feeders in. We have resident raccoons and the occasional bear that wanders through and I have lost several bird feeders to those creatures. Probably the one that startled me the most was the bear that was helping himself to the remains of the birdseed on the bird feeder just 6-7 feet from my bedroom door on the back deck.
I learned my lesson as I looked out the screen door and locked eyes with said bear before he clamored over the side of the railing. No more feeders on the deck at night.
So one of the things that I do not understand is when people intentionally feed the bears and invite them to come join them in their living space. I have “heard” of folks that do that here and to me that is a stupid thing to do. Some of these bears are HUGE and to be trying to entice them to your yard with garbage cans full of food seems a bit irresponsible.
Another thing that makes me go “Hmmmm” is something called the Butter Diet. Yep. One of my friends, who shall remain nameless to protect his/her identity told me about a relative who was expounding the virtues of this so called diet. Butter Bob can tell you all about it. His diet — Butter Makes Your Pants Fall Off—involves eating less carbs and adding fat back into the diet. I won’t go into it all here and quite frankly I don’t give it much credibility but if you are interested in reading more about Butter Bob’s diet plan you can click the link to read more. Honestly–common sense says to limit things that are unhealthy and eat healthy things and limit portions.
Another thing that makes me go “Hmmmm” is a supposed new trend in clothing for men.
I don’t get it. Go ahead–you know you want to click the link to read more.
I can’t even imagine seeing a man in these but obviously I am not up on the latest trend because it seems to have garnered a great deal of support and attention. Who knew.
So what makes you go “Hmmmm”? You know that I would love to hear all about what makes you shake your head. Leave me a comment in the comments section and remember that all comments go to support our Comments for a Cause this month —The Lakeside Fund.
