From the mouth of Bear Bait . . .

Momma was hugging up Bear Bait yesterday afternoon while he was vegging out on the couch, recuperating from the hike and catching up on his cartoon time.  He isn’t a very physically affectionate type, but he endures it manfully from folks he loves.  Bogie was in my office with me, digging through the gear as I stowed it away.  I overheard Momma tell her big boy, “I really missed you while you were out on your hike.”   Without missing a beat, Bear Bait answers, “Well, why don’t you come with us next time?”

I warned her that it would be the boys, not me that would make a trail babe out of their city-girl momma.
