coyotes. seriously.

We just got back from one of those walks that only people with no children can do - with a dog, at ten o'clock at night.

We live in an area that was someone's farm less than ten years ago. In fact, most of the place we live was someone's farm less than ten years ago. But as we walked the last little bit of our walk, through the empty lots and new construction, two of the biggest bunny rabbits you've ever seen tore past us. They were coyotes, and they were so fast -- all you could hear was the wind in their fur.

Of course, my dog just stared at them. And then kept ambling by. Yeah, she earned her kibble tonight.

It was time for us to head home, except that the coyotes had just run in the direction of our house. But we hoped for the best --that they were headed for all the yappy dogs that barked at us as we'd walked by earlier, not waiting for us at our front door.
