Someone Stole My Bear! I made a black bear that sat on a post at the end of my driveway and held a plaque with my house numbers. I even changed the plaque with the seasons. When last seen my bear was carrying a bright green shamrock with embossed gold glittered house numbers. Someone took the time to unscrew the three lag screws that held the bear to the post before kidnapping (I mean bear-napping) him. His mate, a sleepy bear that was laying on the post next to him was left unharmed. But, to be fair, the bear left behind is in need of a day at the spa. He is showing grain in some unsightly areas that need to be touched up.

Anyway, I digress. I just cannot decide whether to be flattered that someone wanted him bad enough to go to all of that trouble or furious that someone stole my bear!!!!!

What do you think?

I would be furious if some joker did that.

I’d be upset. It’s obviously something that meant a lot to you and you had a lot of family tradition around it. It’s a violation, IMHO.

Thank you all for your comments and thoughts. I hope wherever he winds up someone enjoys him. I know I am going to have some fun making another … with long tamper proof screws!

What you need to do is make a plaque to sit on the post UNDERNEATH the bear, so if someone takes him off, theyll see a sign that reads “CONGRATULATIONS! You were just caught on closed circuit cameras” or somesuch :D

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

Patron, To answer your question “where does it end?”, They either become lawyers or politcians or worse yet both (just kidding) JIM
