The man who used to provide holiday decorations for this bear beside his house was unable to do so during his final illness. Today, however, I met his widow when I stopped to photograph it with a flag that someone else had given it. She would be delighted if I would "accessorize" the bear from time to time. Very soon my husband and I will be going to our summer place in Wisconsin, but when we return in the fall, I hope to give a smile to the neighbours from time to time.

Not too late, Jacques ... long before the evening's fireworks display.

Greetings, Marilyn
