An English In Kentucky


















Saturday September 15th 2012    Tim Candler

    Some of us wait for first frost.  It sits out there in the near future, and it's grinning like a downhill skier.  So invariably this is that time of year when storage and stock figure in imagination.  For us it's more like heating fuels, and shelf space, than it is like a dry cave and confusion over adequacy of fat reserve. 

    The idea that for example Bears can avoid the emotions that drag them to a couple of months of blissful oblivion is probably one that some naturalist somewhere has investigated. I reckon he came away with a collection of chemicals, rather than a library of Bear thinking on what I'd like to imagine the more pompous, or disgruntled Bear in his discourse would call, "The Hibernation Problem."
