No sooner had Mallory come inside from cleaning up the garage when she spotted a large dark animal on the lawn. Processing that it was not a deer, she announced that there was a bear in our yard. I glanced out of the window, and saw the bear standing under a tree approximately 15 feet […]
Life stinks. It’s smelly. It’s filled with odoriferous scents that make us gag, hold our nose, and turn our heads! Open your olfactory senses and inhale. What do you smell?
