Hello. This is a picture of me, the only one you will see. You can tell it is a little bit dated by the duds. I thought they were cool then, at the time the photograph was taken, and re-examining them now, I still find them to my liking. But, if the truth be told, I have long outgrown those pants.

You may think it strange that a story about bears begins in a picture without bears. True, it doesn't make sense. But I have always believed that making sense is over-rated. Not making sense has its place too and, for this story, its place is at the beginning.
