Bear Necessities

You know me, I don’t like to brag.  But there are some things you just can’t keep to yourself.  It all started last Friday, when my wife, Linda, called to let me know there was water coming into our basement.  The weather had been very cold for several days and then, suddenly, it switched to very warm.
