Cougar sees us first

Hi Rick,

Thanks for your reply. We're probably around them more than we know. If you want to see more of them go to Vancouver Island, BC, so I've read.

In the 2 or 3 times I've seen them they've always seen me before I saw them, except for one time when I was on a hill overlooking a meadow. We watched him with binoc's sauntering towards us for a long while until I just had to move my knees. I made a little noise on the sand. He looked up, saw us and turned around and headed the other way. That was the first time my wife-to-be went hiking with me, and from a while she thought we'd see stuff like that every time. I try to keep the adventures coming for her.

Your comic is too funny. I wish I could post that on my Facebook page with these photos.
