    Hi all,
    Today I am celebrating 2 special events.
    First as I always do.. this is my 26,000th like celebration! :woot: thanks to @Johndoe2000$ for that like! ;)

    And the other event I am celebrating.. Today is my 2nd year Wedding Anniversary! :kiss::couchpotato:

    So here is what happened yesterday.. My wife and I took our nephew to a local playground with water sprinklers. As I was sitting I eyeballed a huge coin on the ground near our bench. I went picked it up and it was a 2 Dollars Canada coin :wideyed:.. She looked at it and said "Hey there is a bear on it just like that bear sculpture over there" I laughed and said that the bear on the coin is a Polar Bear and the sculpture looks like a Grizzly :bear: (or maybe it is a polar bear?)

    Me holding the 2 Dollar Canadian coin

    You’re finding them now without even a metal detector. Or they’re coming out of the ground finding you. :)

    Congratulations twice over. That bear looks like a polar-grizzly hybrid. No hump like grizzlies seem to have, but the face of a polar bear (but a bit chubby body). I bet you can research it Paddyman.

    @paddyman98, were you referencing John Candy's lines in the Great Outdoors? That scene almost made me wet myself.

    Near the end of "Gone With the Wind" Clark Gable says to his little daughter "A Bear, a Big Bear" after she complains that a bear got into her room.

    The polar bear has a longer neck with ears set farther back and to the side of the head.

    @cpm9ball, you're right; grizzly it is.

    I've watched Gone with the Wind, but don't recall that line. I guess John Candy actually said, "B-b-b-bear. B-b-b-big b-b-b-ear," or something like that. The other two scenes of his that never fail to make me LOL are the "principal's wart" in Uncle Buck and being in bed with Steve Martin in Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Man, I miss that guy.
