thing in a long time this morning as I was leaving Mom and Daddy's house....
A Mockingbird chasing a Coyote!!!
When they built that house 22 yrs ago, their 3 acres was in a "rural" setting. Now...not so much. I'd tend to call it semi-rural even if the School District is building a middle school on the 50 acre tract that abuts their and their neighbor's land.
But as long as I can see a sight like that...it's still a grand place to live.
