in my heart
Smokey is confident and persuasive yet unassuming; he's comfortable shirtless in jeans with few accoutrements.
I'm on the look out for Smokey
and his fire-forecasting signs.
Chances of Fire today:
"Smokey Bear is America's wildfire prevention icon. He has educated generations of Americans about their role in wildfire prevention. Created in 1944, the Smokey Bear Wildfire Prevention campaign is the longest running public service advertising campaign in U.S. History." — SmokeyBear.com
I've ALSO been curious about Smokey's other side.
Not specifically his softer, super-cuddly,
Nor the harder, stern or ferocious side.
I want to see Smokey's BACK side!
Have you ever considered that in most cases when you see a Smokey (sign) he is two fronts? I'm searching for less-modest, 3D Smokeys. I spotted one in Peterborough, NH.
Forest Fires are no Laughing matter!
Cool animations about preventing forest fires:
Things you can create with Matchsticks; and

Be Beary Careful with FIRE!
