Many years ago, when we first started talking about coming back to Alaska (probably even before that), I told Mike I wanted a grizzly bear to hang on the wall. At that time, we didn't even have a wall to hang it on. Now we do, and it's a good thing. This beauty came home with my husband yesterday. I can't wait until he's ready to hang on our wall! It'll be a while. Apparently it can take up to a year for the taxidermist to finish with it!!!!! I will have to work hard to be patient for that long.
