My website was down on Monday, I’m so sorry. I don’t even know how long it was down for. I’m starting doing research on moving hosting sites, but I’m fighting my own inertia on this for many reasons. We’ll see what if I actually do it or stay with the same, very reasonably priced one I’m using now.
The other night, I let Maggie out for her final pottie break, and a heard a coyote howling so close by chills went down my spine. It’s hard to tell because of the way the hills surrounding us can bounce sound, but it sure sounded like he was right on the other side of the street behind our block wall. Maggie had gone to the side of the yard I couldn’t see clearly, so I call her in. I wasn’t sure if she’d gone or now. So I waited.
Now I don’t know of the coyotes can really jump over a block wall fence as I’ve heard, but I’m not risking Maggie’s life. A half hour later, it was quiet, so I let her out again in case she hadn’t done her business. But this time, I spontaneously picked up the piece of PVC pipe I happened to have handy and followed her, while holding this plastic pipe like a bat.
Seriously, what was I going to do? That plastic again a coyote’s teeth probably wouldn’t have ended with me being the hero I imagined, LOL. But I wasn’t letting my beloved dog out there unguarded. I may need to rethink my plan next time!
Maggie had walked outside, turned and saw me — the woman in pajamas wielding a white plastic pipe — and darted right back inside the house, She was like…Coyotes are a danger I understand, but mom suddenly going all Granny Baseball Ninja with a plastic pipe? I’m out! When I got back inside, she was burrowed under her blanket, eyes closed and pretending I don’t exist
How’s your Wednesday going?
