You Know You've Been Neglecting Your Blog When...

You can't find the USB cable to download photos from your camera.  Because it's been that long since you've uploaded any pics.  Seriously, I tried to find it, and I really want to get those pictures of the owl downloaded.  But since I'm here now, I might as well do this thing... blog blog blog!

Not only do we have an owl that hangs around in spring and fall, we also have a little family of foxes that has moved into the field behind our yard.  They've gotten so used to us and they're so bold now.  One day last week I was drinking my morning coffee on the deck and suddenly noticed the not-so-baby fox about 10 yards away.  He's about the same size as the adults, but he's very playful and his coat seems brighter and newer so I'm assuming he's a juvenile.  He hung out in that spot, nosing around for bugs and chomping on an occasional blade of grass.  He was there for several minutes before trotting away.  I'm going to have to take the camera out on the deck every time I go out there if I'm going to get a picture of the foxes though.  They're not skittish, but they do slowly trot out of sight after you watch them for a few minutes.

Ok, enough random rambling.  I'm going to work on finding that cable for the camera.  Stay cool!  It's already steamy here and it's barely after 10:00 a.m.
