Coyotes and other critters...

First of all, this is not my photo. We were out on the lake Sunday afternoon, and I happened to spy two critters down near the water, one very greyish, and the other black. A black coyote? I have never seen one, so I googled it and found this picture of one. They do exist; I wasn't seeing strange critters! They didn't like us motoring near them, so they took off up into the woods, but you can bet I'll be looking for them again!
Amy and I saw a spotted fawn running in our yard yesterday, with perhaps its twin scampering off into 'our' woods...no way to snap a picture of those fast guys! And just at dusk last night, we saw a doe grazing near our campground. I love watching wild life.

This morning I am keeping two really cute two-legged critters...Doodlebug and Peanut will stay here while Amy goes to a meeting. Throw me in that briarpatch! I've gotta stock up on some sugar, since we'll soon be off cruising again. Stay tuned for those details! Life is good.

you've piqued my curiosity... what are doodlebug and peanut?

How many days until the cruise? I can't wait to hear all about it!

Doodlebug is Grandson #1 and Peanut is Grandson #2. You should have seen the huge grin Peanut gave Aunt Haley last night!!!! I'm going to be enjoying that one for a long time. :)

I nver heard of a black coyote, either. I love watching wildlife! My goslings are 7 weeks old and they're about to spread their wings and fly soon!
