Another bear sighting. This one was a good size and crossed Rt. 100 just north of the recycling center around 9:20 pm on Monday. The answer to the age old question of why did the (insert bear in place of chicken) cross the road seems obvious:

A thoughtful “lost and found” posting by Matt on the Winooski Front Porch Forum yesterday…
I found a doritos bag in my veggie plot down at the end of West Street. It is a blue bag… Cool Ranch flavor. It was empty except for some water, which I will assume was rain water. If this is your bag, or if you know who lost this Doritos bag please have them contact me. I can only assume someone out there has nowhere to put their Doritos and is probably on the edge of panic. I am not on here angling for a reward. The look of joy on the rightful owners face is reward enough for this humble samaritan.
#VT - “We just want to thank everyone who reported sitings of our wayward cat, Zoe. She decided to return early Tuesday morning completely happy, healthy and none-the-worse for her travels after almost three weeks away. Clearly, she reads Front Porch Forum.”

#BTV #VT – A few months back, my husband posted a request on the Five Sisters Front Porch Forum asking to borrow a skull. We had four offers by morning.
On Friday, I sent in a note asking for someone to adopt a few chickens. Two guys from Hayward took three of the hens today.
Only in Vermont.

#VT – Hey neighbors! This is an odd bulletin but I wanted to share with you that after hiking with my dog at the gorge (aka Cady’s Falls swimming hole) yesterday he became ill in the late afternoon. He presented with ataxia (wobbliness), dry nose and then later in the night he lost control of his bladder and was constantly incontinent. I took him to the emergency vet in Burlington only for them to give him a drug test and find he was high as a kite on pot. Thankfully this wasn’t lethal, but after the two hour drive and $150 vet bill it also isn’t as humorous as it may sound. He threw up quite a bit of stems and other debris this morning and he’s still pretty out of it.
The only place he could have come into contact with this was at the gorge and he did indeed do the normal lab thing of digging around, trying to (and I guess successfully) eating things and rolling in who knows what, so I’m supposing he found someone’s lost stash. I’m hoping this is an isolated incident but if you are hiking with your pup out there please keep a very close eye on them.

#VT - Dan posted the following to the Huntington FPF the other day, and the responses have been loads of fun…
A couple weeks ago the residents of Upper East Street woke to the sight of a wooden step ladder bravely standing upright and proud just across the ditch on the edge of the woods. It’s a lonely looking step ladder with no houses nearby and no apparent purpose in life such as a large tree nearby to to help someone climb into.
I am hoping readers will post a response answering one or all of the following questions:
1.) The real answer as to how it got there and what it’s purpose is,
2.) The most logical explanation you can come up with,
3.) The most whimsical explanation, or most importantly
4.) What it’s thinking as it silently watches all the busy humans buzzing up and down the road.
I would appreciate your help with this as ever since it appeared I’ve been struggling with getting a good nights sleep.
