Coyote!

 

Topic: Coyote
Problem: its lone daylight presence thirty feet from the house
Feeling: …“oh 💩!”

There he was, much larger than I thought they were supposed to be, right there in broad daylight – ambling along the edge of our deep woods on an obvious coyote mission – probably to leave another one of his signature persimmon seed-laden calling cards in our driveway as if to say, “I am the big bad wolf, and I will eat you up!” – sniffing the exact spots where Boo, Fitz, and Ollie had marked their territory just 10 minutes earlier….forcing my hand in this divided house to say the forbidden words: “Go get the gun.”
