Bears Beware

I spent Thanksgiving day with my dad.

The last time I saw my dad was shortly after the great bear adventure of 2011.

Naturally, as soon as I walked through the door on Thanksgiving day, my dad handed me a magazine and this (holster included):

The magazine was opened to a four page article about a man who had been attacked by a bear in California.

I read the article and accepted the gift graciously, and understood that in "dad language" he was saying,

"I love you and I do not want you to be mauled to death by a bear."

He also suggested I keep it with me, even in town, as it works on humans just as well.

So, I would like to say a big thank you to my dad in taking a proactive stand in me not being eaten by a bear.

And to all the bears out there:

Beware. It's locked and loaded.

This made me grin and tear up, all at once... how precious it is when a father loves and protects his daughter, even against bears :D

What about bear hugs, though?
