I'm just saying.
As a former set assistant, I'd be more than happy to tone down the hotspot with my grease pencil.

I'm just sharing a photography tip.
Yes, congrats. And I fixed the quote for you. Jim

Dood. It's now five. The original post is a year old.

Last, you have to be a mod to post oversize pictures and irritate the underlings.

Congrats, McBear. Motor on!

I loved that story. It had to be written by someone from Colorado Springs.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Police in Colorado say a pregnant woman suffered minor injuries when she was struck by a car while fleeing from an adult black bear.

Police say they're looking for the driver of the car that hit 26-year-old Ashley Swendsen on Thursday in Colorado Springs. An official at Memorial Hospital says Swendsen is in good condition.

Michael Seraphin of the state Division of Wildlife says the woman is about five months pregnant.
Story continues below ↓advertisement | your ad here

The agency says it has captured a bear, but it isn't immediately clear whether the animal was the one chasing Swendsen. It says the incident occurred in an open area where bears are common.

Police say the motorist who hit Swendsen stopped and spoke to her but left before authorities arrived.
Just to be clear, I was NOT driving in Colorado Springs this week.

And thanks. Dang, half a decade. Jeez.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
