My father Bill Spelts has a unique mind. My entire life he has said and come up with the most random and fascinating things. Some of which he collected from others but some he just randomly thinks of in his strange unique mind. Here are a few Billisms that I thought some of you might enjoy.

The British Columbia Fish & Wildlife Branch is advising hikers, hunters and fishermen and any persons who venture into the outdoors to take extra precautions regarding bears while in the wilderness. They advise that you consider wearing little noisy bells on your clothing so as to give advance warning to any bears that might be close by so you don’t take them by surprise. They also advise carrying “pepper Spray” bear repellant with you in case of an encounter with a bear. You should also be able to tell the difference between areas where black bears live vs. those areas where grizzly bears roam. Black bear feces is smaller and contains lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear feces has little bells in it and smells like pepper.


Why are most current Washington politicians like Post Tortoises?

What is a POST TORTOISE you ask?

Well, if you are ever driving down a country road and see a tortoise balanced on top of a tall fence post you immediately know several things.

  1. You know he did not get up there by himself.
  2. He doesn’t belong up there.
  3. He doesn’t know what to do, now that he is up there.
  4. He is elevated way beyond his ability to function effectively.
  5. You have to wonder what kind of idiot put him up there in the first place.
