Starting the week off with a bang



Hi there! How did you spend your Monday morning? I'm guessing you didn't spend it running around your 3 1/2 acre yard in your pajamas hunting down a coyote with your son's Red Ryder BB-Gun... Me neither. Just kidding - of course that's how I spent the morning. After a phone call from our wonderful neighbor saying he spotted the coyote on the back of our property and discovering a pile of black feathers, the rest of the morning was spent with me alternately running around not knowing what to do, cursing at the worthless dogs, and trying to figure out if I actually have the guts to shoot a living thing. The verdict is still out on that last point, by the way, since the only time I got close enough to the coyote was before I had located the bb-gun. The verdict is also still out on whether or not a bb-gun is powerful enough to do anything more than make a coyote angry. There are no pictures of this incident, thank goodness (did I mention I was in my pajamas?), so I posted a recent "family picture" that I like the looks of. Never a dull moment...

Man, too bad David's not there. I told him about this and he said, "I would kill that thing!". I'm sure he'd get the war paint out and snipe the coyote under the cover of dark.

Seriously - we need his sniping abilities! Brett is planning a big hunt tonight... and of course he will probably try to make me eat coyote steak or something if he actually catches it. :)

David also says brett needs a shotgun AND a .22. And that coyote would probably taste bad... Maybe you could make a quilt out of the pelt!

Ha - Moses said I should "make a tank top" out of it.

My uncle used to BB the stray dog that came in the yard to roust around our cat. It only ever sent him running, so I'm thinking probably you are just going to tick off the coyote with a BB gun. Good luck with it though!
