It was early afternoon when we arrived at the bears’ quarters, and at first, I couldn’t see the bears. But then I spotted them — all three of them — sleeping in the sunshine, each in his own bed, several feet away from each other. After a minute or two, one began to stir, and stretch, and yawn. Perhaps she had heard us talking about her?
Actually, I am not even sure that this is the one they call Susie, but that’s okay — it works for me, even though the Everly Brothers were certainly not referring to a black bear.
