Coyote Ugly


This evening after dinner, we walked down to our mailbox. It’s about 800 feet from our house. The driveway is all gravel and it’s all downhill. Walking down it is a challenge, but walking back up is a workout. If we walk this every day, we ought to be in pretty good shape.

On the way up the drive, we hear coyotes…a lot of them. They are fairly close and they sound like crazy hyaenas or wild banchies. My dad says they are getting braver and are not scared of humans any longer. They have even been seen during the day.

Eric says, “I should’ve brought my gun. Keep an eye on Daisy and get her back to the house.”

I quicken my pace. Daisy is being really good and following me closely. I think she’s as much concerned as we are.

We are glad to get back to the house. I’m not sure we will be doing too many evening strolls after dark.
