Oops! I outfoxed myself. I was so distracted by the odd weather we’ve been having here lately and all of the ways it’s unexpectedly altered our calendar and our plans (though my birthday came today right on schedule, wink-wink) that I completely forgot last night to put up the day’s post. So I did it today. A two-fer. Just to remind all of you how much I love you. Thank you for your patience. I may be getting a little absent-minded in my old age, but I still think the world of y’all. Happy two-post day!
The vixen, when she deigns to leave her den,
May have designs on other vixens’ men,
For, little as I know the ways of foxes,
I know they don’t like being kept in boxes
But rather like the freedom just to roam
To any den, if it should look like home,
And any male they’d like to have as mate–
