"X marks the spot in the cave by the fishin' hole," said Eugene. "You know when we were looking to show Becky and Velma!"

“That’s right!” Klancy Dog barks (Klancy loves smores too!)
—Eugene: “See!! Klancy agrees with me!”
—Chuck, disgusted: “You don’t know what that bark means!”
—Eugene: “Of course I do!! Haven’t you heard of the horse whisperer? … Well, I’m a dog hearer!”

“Ritz crackers won’t work,” Velma adds, “but what about Nilla Vanilla cookies?”
—Chuck: “Or Sugar cookies?”
—Becky: “Or Shortbread cookies?”
—Eugene: “No! It’s got to be Graham Crackers!”
—Yancy: “What about Oreo’s?”
—Eugene: “Oreo Smores!!?? That’s just wrong!”

"Perhaps Ritz crackers would work?" said Chuck.
Eugene said, "You know Graham crackers are a key component of a good smore!"

“Only 1 box of graham crackers left!!” Eugene warns
—Becky: “Chuck! Go to the store for more graham crackers!”
—Chuck: “Becky! There’s a bear out there! Can’t you use something else?”

"Not enough smores!" says Eugene as he frantically is assembling them.

Now there is a lineup forming out the back door. Eugene's smores are legendary.

Eugene was working a production line that couldn't keep up with everyone wanting smores.

All the rest of them followed quickly into the house, before Chuck ate all the hot ones.

"Gloves are off! and I am leaving the ring!" Chuck hollers as he runs back up the porch and struggles with the locked door.

Velma said, "He's a really nice bear." as she scratched the back of his neck.

Delicately and slowly, Chuck came down the ladder from the hay loft.
"His fur is soft," said Chuck, carefully patting the bear.

“Chuck, come down out of the hay loft, you big baby! This bear is just the sweetest little cutie pie!”
—Chuck: “Becky! …That bear has big sharp teeth!”
—Becky, talking to the bear & still rubbing it’s belly: “You are just the sweetest bear in the bear in the world! Just a great big teddy bear!”
—Becky: “Chuck, you’ve got to come feel how soft his fur is. Come on, Chuck, come on down here!”
—Chuck: “Aw, Becky!”

"Be careful Velma! Even though he's a baby, he still has those big claws!", says Chuck. "Look Chuck, he has a collar!", says Velma, as she pets the bear anyways.

"All I can say is the cats and the bears are pretty good friends!" says Chuck.

Velma walked over and stood by the bear. It rolled over in front of her and wanted it belly rubbed.

Velma yelled, "RUN CHUCK! THE BEAR IS CATCHING UP!"

Chuck found what he thought was Jack, really it was the first cat within reach and that Chuck saw.

"Release the cat!" yelled Yancy.
Jack took a big swipe at the bear and it stopped running. Then the bear sat down and waited for Jack.

Jack recognized his fried sitting near the barn.

"Uh-oh", says Chuck. He makes a run for the barn to fetch Jack. The bear is in hot pursuit! Luckily it's a small black bear, and they normally aren't too fast...

Taking a deep breath, Chuck opens the door & peeks out
—Slowly Chuck squeezes through the door…which locks behind him
—Stealthily, Chuck heads toward the corner of the house, looks around the corner…& locks eyes with the bear which is just 6 feet away…

Slowly, Chuck opened the back door.
"If I am really quiet, the bear won't hear me," announces Chuck.

Everyone went over to the window to watch the bear.

Chuck continued down the back stairs.

“Really, Chuck! None of our cats are named Jack!” Becky says in exasperation
—Chuck: “But that doesn’t mean they won’t chase bears.”
—Becky: “How are you going to make it past the bear, so you can look in the barn for a cat that doesn’t exist?”
—Yancy, whispers to Velma: “This could be more interesting to watch than the movie!”

“Perhaps we could get Jack, the clawless cat, to chase him away?” suggests Chuck
—Becky: “What! Chuck, what are you talking about?”
—Chuck: “I read about this cat, Jack, who chased a bear up a tree.”
—Becky: “Get real!”
—Chuck: “Honest, Becky! That cat chased this bear up a tree twice! His owner had to go get Jack & bring him back into the house, so the bear could finally escape!”
—Becky: “I don’t believe it!”

No one noticed, they were all watching the movie.

Klancy perked up from his snooze. "Woof" he said, then went running over to the window by the wood shed.

"Lets start watching, and you can tell me which one it is, okay?", asks Chuck. Actually, he had forgotten too. Yancy pipes in, "Be quiet you guys, 'X-Men: The Last Stand!' is about to start!". "Aw Yancy, you party-pooper, I was gonna guess which one it was!", says Eugene.

Klancy woke up and rolled over. He didn't care what movie they were watching, as long as he was warm and fed.

Maybe there would be leftovers!

“Is the movie ready?” yells Yancy
—“Is the popcorn ready?” yells Chuck
—“Is the fireplace ready for s’mores?” yells Eugene
—Velma: “Movie ready. Wood stove ready. Microwave popcorn ready. Wood in the fireplace, but the s’mores will have to wait for a bed of coals to build. Perhaps in about half an hour.”
—Klancy Dog, curled up next to the warm stove: “WOOF!”
—Becky: “Grab the popcorn! Start the movie! We’ll have s’mores in a bit.”
