Bear's Etcetera Etcetera

This is a new use for my previous Shuttleworks Fiber Arts site. I have been thinking about doing this for some time but have been too busy doing other things such as traveling, boating (pre-Covid) and lately during Covid, supporting my wife in her musical endeavors at DJ's Music Studio.

Hiding or staying at home is a requirement these days it seems, out of an abundace of caution of course. Shopping online or by phone for groceries and other necessities is becoming a way of life as is curb-side pickup. However, telephone calls, texting, emails and online video gatherings gives us some semblance of social get togetherness.

This is not what retirement was supposed to be but it is what it is. We just make the most of it and hope this Covid situation comes to an end sooner rather than later. More on that some other time.

I have been collecting jokes, stories and cartoons over a number of years and thought, why not share them with you. I'll post them periodically so check back every so often.

Disclaimer - most of the items I'll be posting have been sent to me without reference as to who the original author or artist is. I cannot take credit for the content other than to say my wife thinks I have a warped sense of humor. From time to time I'll post some of my own thoughts and stories, we'll see how that goes as time goes by.
