Sorry, not much going on around here today. Went to town for the Monday morning water run, during which nothing much exciting happened. Earlier Laddie and I went for what by recent standards was a pretty long walk in the wash. Laddie has decided that coyotes shitting on “his” territory is extremely offensive – this morning it does seem we encountered an unusually large quantity of coyote scat, and he felt called upon to personally piss upon each and every deposit. At one point, apparently out of ammo, he squatted and shat on it.
So I guess that means he’s seeing this as his place, and not just the latest place he got dumped. That’s good, but I did try to explain to him that his ass was writing checks his teeth wouldn’t be able to cash. Guess it would have been funnier coming from a pomeranian or a chihuahua, I mean he’s stumpy-legged but he’s not that small, but in the betting as to how long he’d last in a real dog/coyote encounter, I’m guessing the winning bid would contain the word “seconds” rather than “minutes.”
Anyway, it’s been cloudy all day and started raining a couple of hours ago. Not a lot of rain, just a constant drizzle that’s scheduled to go on for the next couple of days maybe. So I’m resigned to sitting around and waiting it out.
