  Day 14--Inverness-Eagle Eye Kayak tour-part 1
Good morning everybirdie, Angel Girl with today's first Inverness adventure. As the red sun rises over the ocean we finish our hearty breakfast of toast, scrambled eggs, bacon and fruit served up by some of our handsome boy-birds. By the time the sun is above the waters edge we are riding off to begin today's fun tour. Our destination is Eagle Eye Kayak tours. We will kayak from Inverness Harbour along the warm calm waters of the Northumberland Strait. See the rugged cliffs, waterfalls and rocky coastlines. Watch the many Bald Eagles that frequent the area. Take a break for a snack on a secluded beach and look for beach glass or fossils. We will learn to and experience the peacefulness of paddling the spectacular coast and enjoying the natural beauty of the coastline.
"Everybirdie ready?" Angel Girls calls as we turn our horses out into the paddock, with plenty of hay and water. " we are off for a five hour adventure. Make sure to bring your cameras, water bottles and let's have some serious fun" Angel Girl waves her wing and leads off towards the shoreline where the instructors are waiting.
After an in-depth discussion on paddling, safety and making certain our life-jackets are on correctly, we are assigned a Kayak, and push out to sea. "Hey that sounds so cool. Out to sea!" Angel Girl giggles happily as she tries to balance in the kayak.
"Wee, this is fun" Rio yells to Kaji and Lizzie in the Kayak. " wow, don't move too much!" he tells Miranda in another Kayak.
"Look!" Jenny-Lynn points to a distant dark shape, " a whale" she shows Lalo and Sweetie, who stares in awe as the giant mammal surfaces int he far distance.
"Eagles!" Finnegan says, watching the majestic form above, " he's beautiful"
" Tango and Susan look down into the dark water seeing small schools of fish swimming by their Kayak"
"Oh Dixie, this is soooo much fun" Little Angel smiles eggcitedly, " I love kayaking" she paddles like a pro. Sky gives her a frown, as he and BB gain their sea-legs and stop their Kayak tipping side to side.
"Touchy things aren't they" Pearl cries as Silver and Peppino try to steady their wobbling kayak.
Finally we are all ready, and begin to dip our paddles into the calm ocean water. The kayaks move silently, some steadier then others as first-time paddlers learn how to do it. Before all have mastered paddling and off we head along the coast-line.
"A moose" Pookie calls out. A huge bull raises his head from drinking, and watches the birds paddle past. Ducks and Canada Geese flock along the waters edge, swimming along beside us as we go. " WOW, Swans." a group of thirty or more white Swans honk their annoyance of our intrusion. Polly and Falco snap pictures with their cameras.
" Everybirdie" Angel Girl yells out, " Seals" the coastline area is grey with seals. Their calls filling the air loudly. Many hurriedly dive into the water, coming closes for us to take pictures. " this is amazing!" Angel Girl takes lots of photos

  Day 13--Welcome to Inverness & its County
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here from Inverness, Cape Breton Island. Before we begin I want to ask that everybirdie continue in prayer. We have an urgent request from one of our BC family who wish to remain anonymous at this time. Their sweet baby is in critical, life & death crisis. Also our BC Queen Chuey is not feeling well, although there seems to be some improvement day so ask for continued prayers.
After a mix-up due to Chuey's need for immediate medical care, the wedding of Tiamaria Ganster to my frother Casey went on. It was to be rescheduled, sorry for the mix-up. They will be holding a reception later in the month to celebrate. Rev Spot did an awesome job of performing his very first Celtic wedding.
Now that we have relocated to Inverness ( Scottish Gaelic: Baile Inbhir Nis), a small rural community of approximately 3000 persons.

Located on the west coast of Cape Breton Island fronting the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Inverness sits astride a small coal seam which was exploited from the late 19th century to the mid-late 20th century, beginning with a mine opened by William Mackenzie and Donald Mann during the 1890s after they achieved control of the Inverness and Richmond Railway. Several more mines opened in and near Inverness during the early 20th century, but many closed following World War II with the last one closing in the early 1990s following a fire.

The community was incorporated as a town in 1904. It experienced economic hardship since large scale industrial coal mining ended; the local economy is now based mainly on fishing and tourism. Inverness Raceway was established in 1926, and harness races are held twice weekly between May and October. North America's only true links golf course, the (200-acre (0.81 km2)) Cabot Links is located on the former coal mine and overlooks beautiful sandy beaches. Inverness County is like an unspoken guardian of Cape Breton Island’s Celtic traditions. Its tiny communities are teeming with pride and a genuine way of life that has maintained Gaelic traditions throughout the years. There are many Celtic treasures and traditions waiting to be discovered in Inverness County, from its lively community dances to its well-known outdoor music concerts. The sunset side of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia seems to whisper all things Gaelic.

"WOW, this is so beautiful" Cinn-A-Bunn says taking in the panoramic view of Inverness and county. " Look at the ocean, how blue it is from up here on the mountainside." Zippy adds taking photos.

The birds take in the scene set out before them. Starting tomorrow they will be busily eggploring many interesting and fun adventures.

  Day 11--The Greyt Race to the finish
Hello Everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. I wish to first ask that you PRAY FOR QUEEN CHUEY. She is not feeling well, and as of yet the cause is "inconclusive" however she seems to have improved slightly in the past 24 hours. ALSO A REMINDER of the wedding of Tiamaria Ganster and my frother Casey Thrift will take place tomorrow-Friday on my page at 7PM EST--all are invited to join them as they exchange their vows in true Scottish style. Reception to follow.
As we left it yesterday Miss Chipper had flown into second place behind SKY. Everybirdie is pushing themselves on this last Triathlon event. Dixie is slowing down quickly, his feet and legs begin to hurt. Little Angel looks back as she waddles at top-speed down the hill. She sees Dixie begin to limp, then finally stop a sad look crossing his handsome face. Little Angel stops, and turns back to join Dixie when outta the blue Puffin and Tango come up from behind and lift Dixie onto their shoulders, running together wings acrossed each others backs. WHAT A SHOW OF TRUE SPORTSBIRDSHIP. The trio catches up to Little Angel who is jumping and clapping in delight as she watches Dixie happily completing the course with help from his friends. She yells and cheers as they come to where she is waiting, and the four birds run together side by side down the hill and head into the stretch moving fast.
The Trio and L'il Angel quickly catch up passing the others two by two soon taking third place as Chipper Sky and the others give it their all. Suddenly Rio, Lalo, Miranda and Peppino appear among the fore-runners and the push is on. Sky stumbles over a tree root, and fights to keep his balance. Willie grabs him by the Wing stopping his head long fall. After a quick man-birdly-hug they are off once more as the finish line appears in the distance. The four-some of LA, Dixie, Puffin and Tango begin to move forward into second position. Chipper flies into first as the group of runners/fliers move together towards their goal.
With the red finish line only ten feet ahead the foursome puts their all into it and take over the lead, as the others see Dixie clapping and Conure screeching in happiness they begin to yell and clap, cheering them on. The others slow their pace as they watch in awe as Tango and Puffin carefully place Dixie onto the ground only four steps from the finish. Little Angel takes Dixie by the wing, letting his weight fall upon her, as she helps him take one, two three steps with just one left she lets Dixie step carefully forward and the crowd goes crazy with screeches, screams and bird calls, DIXIE ADLER is this years 2014 Birdathalon WINNER. Cameras flash as sports announcers push forward, microphones in hand to get an interview with the winner.
"Do you have any words for those watchin' at home?" CBC asks
"YES. I had a little help from my friends." Dixie breaks down here, tears streaming down his cheeks as his Little Angel hugs him close.

  Day 10--The Greyt Race to the Finishline
Wow, what a spectacular fireworks display last evening over the ocean. After a day of dancing, playing instruments and dining on fine Scottish cuisine, a relaxing rest on the beach, as the skies filled with color was the perfect ending.
Today is the Triathlon. We're up bright and early to warm up for the Greyt Race. We'll splash in the ocean, ride our horse over rough terrain and finally fly or waddle to the finish. This evening we will continue down the Celtic Trail to Inverness, where we will spend two days exploring the area, and taking part in a wonderful, SURPRISE WEDDING. YES, a wedding. My frother MR Casey Thrift will wed his darling Tiamaria in an ocean-view outdoor ceremony, followed by a reception in the Parish courtyard of St John's Church. Everybirdie is invited to join them on this special occasion as they exchange their vows of love in true Scottish style. The ceremony will take place at 7PM EST on my page # 224627
The ocean is calm, and blue as we ride off to the starting line of today's cross country Triathlon. Pearl, and Silver have been practicing since sign up earlier in the week and are the two to watch for. Snowy, Cydney, Strawberry and TiPaul are strong splashers for the first leg of the three event competition. Sky and BB, Kiddo, Cori and Pepper have been working on their horse-birdship skills and we expect some awesome results from them. In the final leg Susan, Sweetpepper, Dixie, Little Angel, aka lightening-streak, and Raffi are rearing to show their stuff.
The whistle goes to signal the start. All the birdies are lined up as the starting pistol sounds. As a flock they run to the waters edge, wings out, water splashing far and high, they show their best efforts. Pearl dives beak first into the water, sending ripples in all directions, Casey puts his toes in and backs out, " Too cold for me" "Come' on sweetie" Tiamaria calls, splashing intot he surf fearlessly. Thoroughly soaked they wade towards the waiting horses hitched on shore. Casey is still not wet, and Tiamaria is splashing him as fast as her wings will beat.
TiPaul bolts off the ground onto Lightning as is riding towards the rocky hills at the end of the beach with Sky in hot pursuit. BB waves as she charges her horse past the group, up the hill, and starts along the Celtic trail. Sugar and Thorin are closing in fast, as Chyna and Dyna-Dancer take second position. Here comes Boo Boo on Starfire, she's pushin' into third position. Sky takes the lead and arrives at the third event start.
Sky never looks back, but is off at a fast waddle, Sugar jumps clear of Thorin and is on the run, quickly catchin' up to Sky Boy. BB stops to catch her breath as she dismounts and begins the last leg. Spot, coming to a screeching stop, jumps right over Hulk is has gotten off to a quick start. Here comes Miss Chipper, she flies over the runners heads to take second position as they begin their climb up the hillside....

  Day 9--Music to my ears??
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. I's been a wonderful, albeit loud day here in Port Hood as some of our talented friends have given their all to learning to play the bagpipes. Miss Lizzie certainly is the best, but my own frother Mr. Sky is mighty good too. No wonder he's such a wind-bag"
"Hey, now SKY was that nice?" Angel Girl glares at him, scowling after her frother swatted her on the shoulder.
"I am not a "wind-bag" now am I sweetheart?" Sky asks BB, who is grinning widely, trying to look innocent as possible.
"Ah, come on Sky, I was only teasing you." Angel Girl says masking her delight in getting one on her frother at long last.
"Listen to this" Polly says taking a deep breath and blowing through the mouth part of the blow pipe as hard as possible. " eeeeeeettttteeeeeekkkkkkwhyatie"
"Hey that's really cool Polly" Silver says holding his wings over his ear holes
"My turn" Spot says taking a b ig breath and puffing out his checks like a hamster. " wwwwykrjfjsdbs" Spot frowns at his bagpipe, then laughs, ready to try again.
"Ok, Sky your turn" Kiddo says, " AAAAAMMMMAAZZZZIIIIIINNGG GGGRRRACCCEEEE"
"Hey, that's greyt Sky" Angel Girl says in a whisper to Kacey and Mikey, told ya he was a wind bag." Sky shoots her a hotty look and rolls his eyes at his fister.
"ME, ME, Me!" Little Angel yells, as she gets ready to play. She takes a deep breath, then suddenly she swallowed the air in her mouth. " BURPPPPPP!" she giggles as the sound escapes her beak, " now I'm ready." she tries once more. Music comes softly out of the bagpipe, and rises in volumne. Finishing LA grins happily as she kisses Dixie next to her.
Gus picks up his blow pipe, takes a breath and begins to play "Danny Boy" like a pro. Everybirdie stops tolisten as he continues to play. Kaji joins him, followed by Miss Lizzie. They play the song perfectly. Every birdie claps as it comes to a close.
"You guys are awesome" Angel Girl says, " You should go on the road"
Willie, Hulk, Jenny-lynn and Peppino pick up their drum sticks and begin to hit their snare drums, marching back and forth like true Scotsmen.
After a day filled with music and dancing everybirdie is happy to head down to the beach for the Fireworks over the ocean. Tomorrow the triathlon takes places."Has anybirdie seen Tiamaria and Casey? They disappeared towards the Chapel this morning?" Finnegan asks

  Hi Ms Puffin, I miss you, from Angel Christy
...we got big time rain and lots of thunder and lighting last night, but we live high on the Rock Island Hill area, so we do not worry about flash flooding, like some of those folks in Arizona, NC, and a few other unfortunate places! Dad was up two hours early and is now running two hours behind schedule, go figure, maybe if he could move a little faster! He spent much of yesterday stripping bark off of fresh Maple branches, they are really nice when new and fresh! The big dunce managed to cut himself twice, with his razor sharp hunting knife, back to Boy Scouts 101 for him! Have a great ToosDay dear friend, and give my love to all in your sweet home...

Love always from your Special Angel, & the Dallas family

  Hi Puffin,

Thanks for stopping by. It's your Friend, Oz. Thank You so much for the compliment and I think you are one gorgeous "Too". Mom has always dreamed of having a Rose Breasted Cockatoo. She's my 3rd owner and she says that I'm now in my Forever Home. I'm so happy because I really like it here. Mom never pushes me to do anything that I don't want "Too" do. Sometimes I don't feel like coming out of my Cage (furniture really) and she won't force me. Hey, I live in an Avian Accent Cage with lighting and a filtration system and it's like a Castle. So sometimes I just like to hang out in my home LOL. Hope you're having a good day. Oh and don't forget about my Sister, Cheyenne is marrying Jedi & my Brother, Apache is marrying his Sister, Snowflake at the Castle on Sat. Sept. 20th and EVERYBIRDIE is invited. So bring whoever you want to bring and tell your Flock about it. Spot will be doing the ceremony and Cookie's (the Quaker and Best Man & I'm the Maid of Honor) Mom, Mary is doing the pictures. It should be a real blast. Take care and stop around anytime. Here's a vote for you, cutie. Bye for now.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

Come visit me, Parker, Silver, APACHE IS SO HAPPY SNOWFLAKE SAID YES ON 04/27/14, Oz & Cheyenne said YES to her Jedi 5/3/14.

  Day 8--Chestico Festival dance lessons
Hello everybirdie; What a greyt time we had on the beach. The bikini competition was amazing, and we only had to pull three of the boys off the stage. LOL! It was so much fun getting a chance to see all the latest European styles and designs. Between the warm surf and the savory foods it has been an eggciting visit in Port Hood. Today we get our chance to watch, and try our talented talons in some Celtic dancing, and maybe even put our beaks to the bagpipes and play some Gaelic tunes. The Interpretative Celtic Music Center is open to visitors, who can try not only the bagpipes, but also their wings at being a drummer as well.
"Hey L'il Angel, what are you dressed like that for?" Angel Girl asks her fister, eying up Little Angel's new Celtic tartan kilt.
"I'm going to take Highland dancin' lessons today" L'il Angel says putting her tam on her head and looking at herself in her mirror.
"Dixie? Are you ready sweetheart?" L'il Angel yells into the tent door.
Slowly Dixie exits the tent, his face blushed red. He looks around quickly making sure the coast is clear. HE is wearing a kilt too, complete with a sash over hi shoulders. " We're taking Scottish dance lessons" It was then that Dixie saw that many of the other birds were sporting kilts in various Tartans ( Clan colors).
"See, we all are had the same idea" Sky says walking past in his kilt (Feileadh-beag - pr: feela beg). Sky stands tall, and smiles. "It's birdly. It's not a dress Dixie!"
"Hi SamIAm, you off to the bagpipe lessons?" Kaji asks, reining in his horse, " That's were Lizzie Pookie and I are riding too. Com' on with us"
The birds mount up and head off to the Music center and the MacInnis Sportsplex. There is Celtic music, dancing demonstrations and more Scottish foods to try today. Tomorrow is the Triathlon. Many famous fiddle-players, Celtic musicians from as far away as Scotland, British Columbia, Canada and the USA have arrived for the days concerts, lessons and fun.
At the Celtic Music Center, Snowflake, Little Angel, Cookie and Cydney stand as the instructor Patricia Chafe shows them the first dance steps. 'Ok, one, two, three..." Little Angel takes the first two steps then suddenly making a quick turn on one foot, she trips sending Cydney falling into Snowflake. The three girls giggle as they lay on the floor in a jumbled heap at Cookie's feet. "Ok, let's try this again. Maybe you should stand over here, Little Angel" Pat says, walking her to the other side of the line. The three girls do the steps again, perfectly. Then the others join them, as the fiddles play a quick tune. The laughing birdies have lots of fun, learning to dance. After a few lessons, they sit down to watch some experienced dancers for a while. " We did greyt" Dixie says happily as he hugs LA close.
"Ok Sky and BB. You're turn" Sky leads BB in a graceful Highland Waltz. Everybirdie applauds their performance. "WE practiced!" BB says

  Hi Puffin
We are always so happy to see you, or anyone from your flock. It's great that you had a fun day in the castle.
Yesterday mom did one tour in dinosaur hall. That one lasted nearly an hour, too! She just can't seem to shut up or make her comments brief, heehee. For the second tour, there were not enough people, so the other woman working with mom took the 5 people and did the tour. Mom walked through the hall and talked to a few folks, then came home to us.
This morning mom did the RVS room at the center. There were only 3 raccoons in there! It has really emptied out, now that fall is approaching. They only had 2 intakes this morning while mom was there, too. That's as opposed to 10 or so in 2 hours in the spring/summer months. They have taken in over 2500 animals so far this year. At any rate, she got that room done quickly, then decided to tackle the mountain of dishes. After an hour, she had all the dishes washed, disinfected, rinsed, and stacked! That was a lot of work.
Little boy fox squirrel got returned this morning, too. He rejected the syringe feeding last night in favor of feeding himself, and he did the same this morning, so it was time for him to go into a larger cage at the center and grow up some more.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting sunshine with low humidity like we are. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Ms Puffin, from your old friend Angel Christy
When Dad mentioned to Little Girl about his Scottish ancestry, she wanted to know which Clan the Dallas' originated from! Dad's son researched our family background and found out the we are from the Clan MacIntosh, (that name has various spellings)! We don't know the Tartan colors, but they first settled here during the pre-Civil War era! Have a great Monday dear friends, our Bears lost, ho-hum, we'll have to get used to that this year! Give my love to my dear aunt Theresa, and all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Day 7--Port Hood beach fun
Hello, and good morning to all our BC friends. I must first make a quick apology for missing two days of blogs. In my gallery I will be posting photos of the "tree" that has been to topic of our absence recently. Now, with it cut down, removed and cleaned up things are getting back on track. I want to thank everyone for their votes and support in my absence.
"Oh look" Angel Girl points to the beach spread out for miles along the blue ocean edge. Kicking Celtic Lass gently in the ribs to urge her into a trot she rides towards the shade of a row of Maples edging the beach. As far as the eye can see there are sand sculptured bikini clad forms, and beautiful birds dressed in imported swimwear.
" SKY? What are you looking at so attentively ?" BB asked already knowing her Sky with his black-out sunglasses was taking in the food booths. "See, if it were any other bird he'd be watching the girl-birds playing beach volleyball. LOL!" BB tells Lalo and Jinny riding beside them. Sweetie giggles at her frother.
"I'm taking a swim with Firestorm" Cinn-A-Bunn yells galloping towards the surf, Boo Boo, Polly, Zippy and Rio race after him.
" We're off to check out the, AHHHHHHHH, beach" Pearl and Silver say giggling and jumping off their horses, hitching them in the shade.
CuBird and Snowflake grab their towels as they make their way to the water's edge. Little Peep hurries to catch up. Angel Girl watches her friends for a moment before deciding that she'd like to get a snow-cone. "Anyone wanta join me in a snowcone?" Chyna, Chipper and Lizzie think it's a greyt idea so the four girls take off in search of the snow-cone booth.
"Well Dixie, let's set up our towel, and sit in the sun. It'll make your legs and feet feel better. Then I'll go get us ice cream cones." L'il Angel smiles, leaning over to give Dixie a big kiss and whispers, " and some popcorn" Dixie grins, thinking of how often they'd sat together eating popcorn as they enjoyed a movie.
Port Hood is well known for it's miles of sandy beaches. The warm ocean water and scenic landscape some of the most beautiful in the world. During the Chestico Days, Tartan colors can be seen all down the beach, flying above booths selling clothes, food and sovereigns.
Tia and Casey wander down the beach wing in wing. They have been very quiet so far this trip, spending almost every minute with their heads close togetehr talking. " I wonder what's up with those two lovebirds?" Sugar says to Gus and Susan. They return to their important business of shopping for keepsakes of their trip to Cape Breton.
"Hey Spot, where's BonBon?" Falco asks.
"Not certain, but last I saw her, she was splashing in the waves with Raffi, Angel, Pepper and Sweetpepper. They were over there near the stage for the Bikini competition"
Falco walks in that direction, zig-zagging to avoid birdies tanning on the beach.

  Day 5--Port Hood Chestico Festival
Hello everyone, With the horses saddled and our gear on the pack horses we are off to Port Hood, our first stop on the Celtic Trail. Port Hood is a vibrant, seaside community on the west coast of Cape Breton Island, and the capital of Inverness County, Nova Scotia ,approximately 30 minutes north from the Canso Causeway. With miles of sandy beaches on the warmest waters in eastern Canada. Also the home of NHL Hall of Famer Al MacInnis, CFL champion Bruce Beaton, the late “Godfather of Celtic Music” John Allan Cameron, and former Olympian Duncan Gillis, not to mention 2008 Canadian Idol runner-up, Mitch MacDonald!
" I smell Lobsters cooking" Sky sniffs the breeze as we ride into Port Hood.
"You and your belly!' BB teases tickling Sky in the ribs as she rides next to him along the scenic trail into town.
"Jenny-Lynn, wait up" Sweetie yells as she gets Dusty to run," we'll find the banks no problem" Sweetie giggles, then grins innocently as JL looks down at her and smiles. " AH, you're a real Zon girl now"
We're in time for the Triathalon" Angel Girl Points to the big overhead sign, " let's sign up"
"What about the Lobster dinner?" Sky asks disappointment in his voice."there's a Lobster Festival today"
"Sugar, let's go sign up then stop in at that jewellery store" Cori and Boo Boo say, " I want to pick up something for my Mom.
Reaching the MacInnes SportPlex, the birds file in, those wishing to, sign up for the Triathalon. Being visitors, a special category is added to the event-splash in the water, horse-back ride and then running or flying the third portion of the event.
"WOW, this'll be fun" Chyna says as she and Falco head outside to their horses waiting in the shade.
"Can we eat now?" Sky asks BB, as they follow behind to their mounts " I'm starved. It's been an hour or more since I ate breakfast"
Once everybirdie is mounted, they ride into the city, to take part in the Lobster Picnic Festival. Fresh, local lobsters, salads and BBQ burgers are filling the air with delicious images. " We'll all get to try some of the local Lobsters, cooked in various ways, plus for those of us who don't like sea-food, we have Angus Burgers too." Angel Girl announces. The air is filled with Celtic fiddle music, adding a touch of Scotland.
"After lunch can we visit some of the five beaches that make up this area?" Miranda asks, through a beakful of Lobster salad, " heard they are having a Sand Bikini event"
"Count us all in'"the boys say " we can make our own bikini sculptures to enter the contest. It is part of the Chestico Festival taking place."
"you can be one of our bikini models" Kiddo tells Sweetpepper" kissing her softly as they enjoy their lunch.
"Let's look around at the shops. I wanta find myself a Tartan cap" Kaji adds
"Let's get done lunch then we can all go enjoy Port Hood and later meet at the beach for some serious fun in the sun." Angel Girl states happily, eggcited to enjoy the Festival and events.

  Dear Queen Puffin, congrats for BOTD-Angel Christy
We are supposed to have a cool front coming in today, we are kind of looking forward to it, and to be rid of this nasty humidity! Dad has some more maple branches to trim and de-bark for perches to give away, he likes doing that, it makes him feel useful! I think he is a little miffed at Jen, he had to chase her all around our house today, her wings may get a minor clip! Congrats to the Hawks, and you Packers, you need to tackle better and get some defense! TGIF dear friends, make it fun for each other, my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow....

Love from Angel Christy & my Dallas flock

PS~ Way to go Sugar, Scooby, Taz, and buck up, Kaji, Hulk, and Packer backers, one game does not a season make! We are Bears fans, feel sorry for us, LOL...
