The "Begging Bear frequently receives things like scarves to wear or empty beer cans to hold, but I had never seen it costumed as elaborately as it was for the July 1st holiday, Canada Day!

Thanks, Anne. My husband knows that I've been watching the bear for interesting "accessories" even though I hadn't yet taken its picture. So today when he saw this, he came home and told me to come with my camera, and off we went! Greetings, Marilyn

Good job Marilyn -- much better than 'bare'!

Ooooooo Bruce!

As I was hunting my camera angle, two women walked past. One asked whether I wanted her to take a picture of me with the bear. If there is anything I do not want, it's a photo like that!
