The Dogs of The Bears (of Blue River)


For the last week, I’ve been on a little vacation of sorts with Chicago’s The Bears of Blue River.  They were in my neck of the woods — Kentucky/Tennessee/Georgia — on their 5-week tour and it only made sense to join ‘em on some dates. 

A common thread in all the places I trekked to with The Bears were the dogs.   Louisville, Bowling Green, Nashville, Chattanooga, Atlanta — with every gracious host, there was a new pup.  So, it only made sense to compile these guys in a post.  Please enjoy.

This photo best describes mine and Aaron’s weekend get-away to Chattanooga, Sevierville, and Winston-Salem. 

I love the See Rock City barns!  Love them!

I try to put in a little extra effort when I thank people for things, even when I’m just sending a card and a button pack.

These are some notes that we mailed out this morning to Chattanooga for some friends of The Black Shades

Young Mary Reminder of the Week:

No matter how old you get and no matter how little you evolve artistically — taking the time to make something more special for someone is likely worth it.
