Slice of Life 2019 25 of 31: A surprise visitor at dinnertime

Throughout the month of March, I am participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge. I am happy to co-host this event with the team at Two Writing Teachers. Everyone is welcome!


Gathered in the kitchen, we all looked at Cecily as if she was crazy. All she could do was point for a couple of seconds. We turned toward the direction of her pointing finger, and there was no missing the object of her attention. 

We had a visitor for dinner. 

No one thought to take a picture as he looked in through out kitchen door, but by the time he moseyed through the front year, we were starting to find our phones, 

And by the time he scaled the fence and contemplated the bird feeders, we'd all become bear paparazzi. 

Like some guests, it's exciting to see them at first, but it's relieving to see them leave!

We sent a text to the neighbors so they'd have their phones readier than we did!

Happy Slicing,


  1. Wow! An unexpected--and slightly scary--guest! The pictures tell a great story, one that will be remembered for quite awhile, I'm sure.

  2. Oh my gosh. That looks like a big bear. I love the beginning of this- it helped me to suspect bear immediately.
