Bears and Panthers….oh my.

IMG_0309 (1) I have moved to Fort Myers, FL. It is tropical. I got tired of the cold. I don’t want to be in snow. I want to grow oranges. I hated climbing stairs in my 2 story house. The altitude in Reno, NV is 4,500 feet. I could not bake bread. I bought a bread machine and tried baking 3 loaves of bread. They did not bake very well.
I bought a brand new house. It is a one story. I hopefully move into it next week. The closing day is Wednesday,hopefully. They said tentively, maybe or maybe not. Who knows why.
I was driving on a road and I kept seeing Panther crossing signs. In Reno I saw horses crossing signs. Now it is Panther. The house we bought is out in a forest area. I asked the superintendent when we were walking the house. You have to walk it one week before you move in. “Is there Panthers and bears out here?” He said “Yes and wild boars that are dangerous too.”
I told my husband that we have to put up a fence. I don’t want to take out my dog to go do her you know, and then all of the sudden a panther runs up and takes my dog and runs off with her. And me all screaming but not running after her because I don’t want to be eaten by a panther. Besides I can’t run very well.
If you don’t believe me look up Panther takes cat in driveway in Florida on Youtube. I watched it because I asked Google on my phone “Is there really panther in Florida.” Yes there is, they are brown tan and look like mountain lions but they are called Florida Panther. Then it had a link to the video. The video shows this panther running up and grabbing a kitty cat and walking away with the cat. I was tramatized by that video. The cat hardly ever goes outside and it went out and was sitting in the driveway and boom, kitty was gone in the mouth of a Panther. So upsetting. Poor kitty.

We are living in our motorhome right now just waiting to move into our house.
I have to sit and think about my safety in my home with bears, alligators, panthers, wild boars and snakes possibly being in my back yard. It will be OK…….I hope.

I love to make videos, cooking ones and legos ones. I like to draw and paint and make crafts and read blogs. I have a Nikon D80. I also use my new Canon Rebel. I don't really notice not much difference in pictures between the Nikon D80 but I bought for the video use. You can not use Nikon to make a video, it is not on the camera.

  1. They say they are endangered. I will have to put a camera on the back of the house in case one comes around I can see it. I hope it kind of avoids my house though. There is a big ditch that runs in the back. When it rains a lot it fills up. Right now there is a lot of water lillies all over it. They say alligators are in all bodies of water. I hope there is not one in it. It is not very deep. I love big birds they are cranes. I have not seen any but I have only been to the house a couple of times. There is a manatee park not very far away. I will go there. I hope I see a manatee. I love those.
