New Card: Bruce the Bear

15 Aug

A few years ago, bears started to become a pervasive part of Asheville culture. My dad, Bruce, always entertained out of town guests with “bear stories” that he collected from his friends, patients, and coworkers. The formula for these stories usually went something like this: Mama bear + baby bear(s) + food + your car, porch or front door = dangerous, shocking or adorable. Photo documentation always warrants extra credit points.

Now, everyone in Asheville has bear stories of their own, as these big boys love to come down into the valley for Asheville’s gastronomic delights. Alex and I spotted these two bears in my parents yard. This picture was printed in the Asheville Citizen Times (double extra credit points).

So, this card goes out to my fellow Ashevillians. This bear, Bruce, is often seen around town, snapping photos and collecting human stories. Extra credit points (in my book) if you buy a card! Free shipping this week with the coupon code BEARFREESHIPPING.

    umm, I definitely want some of these. You might not know this, but I have a nickname for my husband (I get to say that now, right?!)=> Ben, the Bear. Not sure where it came from. Maybe because he loves fishing and is tall and furry 🙂

    Awesome work, yet again, lady love.
