Of Bears & Blueberries: Three year old knew basics

By Mitzi Bault

When my daughter Amy and family lived to a little community in Tennessee, located in the rugged mountains between Jellico and LaFollette , they found it was very common to see bears on US 25 W, and other roads in the area.

My mom, Fay Waggener McKinley, wanted to give Amy some blueberry plants for the new home.

But Zack, my grandson, then around 3 or 4 years old, let my Mom know real quick it wouldn't do. "No! NO!" he protested. "That would make the bears come even closer to our house."

To this day we laugh about the incident anytime blueberry bushes are mentioned ... - Mitzi Bault
