“Furious bear, faking friendship—BEWARE! … Hates men!” Chuck reads, gulps
—As the bear growls, Chuck turns to run…

"Evidently, it's someone's pet", says Becky. "There is a tag on his collar... it says something on it!"

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!

"I don't want to have to go out there for a while, it is a good movie!"

“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.”

He began telling them all about his favourites and not so favourites.

X-braced wood piled up in the shed. It was so high, it had to be held in with a brace to keep it from falling out.

"I found more wood!" hollers Yancy.
"We have lots, come over here and start chopping!" yelled Chuck.
"This stuff is already cut and split!" said Yancy.

—“Go help Eugene chop the wood.” Becky instructs, “The movie can start when ya’all come back.”
—As Chuck & Yancy tromp out the door, Becky smirks back at Velma… “They’ll be a bit. I’ve got some Godiva chocolates. Would you like some, while the guys are gone?”

"So Yancy, what's the next movie?", says Chuck, really loudly so that Eugene can hear him. Yancy yells back, "X-Men: The Last Stand!" Chuck & Yancy begin to chuckle. Eugene looks at them through the window, scowling. He begins furiously chopping some logs.

Racing out the back door, Eugene heads to the wood pile. He finds it empty. "What happened to all the wood?" asks Eugene.

"Well it has been cool in the evenings," said Becky. "We burned some in the stove!"

"Maybe you can cut some," said Chuck, looking out the back door. "The axe is right there."

Klancy had found Eugene. He was inviting himself over for movie night at Chuck's.

Becky and Velma were, as usual, doing all the work and catering.
Becky was making more popcorn.
Velma was keeping up with demands for chili.

Eugene found a chair.
Klancy found the floor.

"We're ready for the next movie!" said Yancy.
