Yesterday, Finn and I saw a coyote down by the fire station. He blended beautifully with the landscape such that you can barely see him in the photo (look to the left). Though I’ve heard of many sightings over the years, this was my first.
Finn got very alert. Very still.
These turkeys were on Cypress Street today — a more common sight (along with red tailed hawks). I love how their prehistoric manner offsets all our signposts of civilization. Curbs and cars, fences and houses — and a posse of turkeys! They are not impressed.
Yesterday, the living room was flooded with light and I took a ridiculous number of pictures of this pennant. Today, I filled out the customs form at the post office, all the while wondering how Mo’s last name actually sounds. Off it went — almost a year to the day before the deadline. That must be some kind of personal best.
(My husband has a consonant-rich name so you’d think I’d be better at Mo’s name. But I’m not.)
The FCC did the wrong thing today (by overturning regulations put in place to preserve net neutrality). I don’t think this fight is over.
Did I really hear that the FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai said something along the lines of ‘nobody’s watching’ from a live stream of the proceeding? With comments piling up so fast, I could barely read them? With streams of angry face emoji’s so thick, I could barely make out the scene behind them?
At least this deeply upsetting decision did not come on the heels of a whack job with criminal tendencies being elected to the US Senate. I’d been dreading Alabama’s election (who hadn’t been?) — even though I had a feeling in my body that Jones was gonna win.
Official pennant post next.
