Bearly awake

Woke up early and was drawing my first sip of coffee a little after 4 am when I saw a dark body moving across the street in the neighbors driveway.  Realized it was a bear and when I saw it go for their garbage can, I opened the front door and shooed him away.  Beautiful medium-sized black bear.  He immediately shyed away from the can like he wasn’t really going to look inside and then crossed the next door neighbor’s yard into the big woods.  The bear probably came down our driveway and had crossed the road when I saw him.  Luckily garbage day was yesterday so I notified my neighbors about keeping their garbage cans inside.
