Excitement in the country  
As many of you know, I'm back in my hometown of Adrian MI right now for family things, but I had a nice (?) moment last night.

My parents live about 4 miles out of town in a house surrounded by farmland and woods. It's not the full on boonies, but to give you an idea: our dirt road didn't get paved until about 10 years ago, there's only a dozen houses on the 2 miles stretch of road and it's really dark and really quiet at night, especially for a long time city dweller like myself.

Last night, while sitting in the backyard, enjoying a smoke and a bourbon, watching the sunset, I saw a coyote! He came out of the tall grass of the sod waterway bordering the yard and the farm fields, maybe 50 yards away. He looked at me, trotted one way along the grass, came back, looked at me again, then ducked back into grass. 

It's no Manchester Panther story, but pretty exciting nonetheless! :D

Thank you, Autumn. I'm glad I got to talk to you a little bit about John before I had to leave. I will /really/ need a Goonies night when I get back!

I like the seal story! And no, it's not silly or childish at all. The world is more full of wonders and amazement than we will ever know.

(Isn't that some kind of famous quote? Hmmm.)
