An old bear and Cabela's...

Where ever we have gone we have displayed our yard sign.  It is sort of a tradition amongst RVers.
We went to Cabela's and found an appropriate addition to our identifier.

Not far from our camp site a new shopping center was built about 6 or 8 months ago that included a huge Cabela's.  Cabela's is a camping, hunting, fishing, general outdoor outfitters.  It is also a throw back to a time when retail shopping was entertainment.  I worked in retailing back during that hey-day.  Not only was retailing entertainment for the shopper-customer, it was also exciting and fun for those of us in the business. I loved it. 
If you ever get a chance to visit a Cabela's, do so.  The taxidermy dioramas are as good or better than any you will find in the best nature museums. It is a chance to see wildlife as it might appear in the wild.  Most people will never get this close to it outside. It is also great education for the kids.  On weekends they have lots of fun free activities for the whole family.

Garden statuary a little different from the norm.  A bear with a flashlight (yes it lights up at night) has just done-in a garden gnome.
