Dawn wasn't spectacular this morning, but I had an enjoyable ride, and I think Blue had fun too. We scared up a herd of deer heading for cover after a night of browsing, and saw a couple of skunks at different times, meandering along and searching for mice or insects to eat. I was going to take a picture of the second skunk I saw, but as I approached him, he turned his back end toward me and lifted his tail in warning. Blue and I then gave him a wide berth!
I had mentioned a tractor accident in a previous entry. It turns out the tractor simply rolled out of the shed on its own, picked up speed, and overturned. The way it happened, though, it's fortunate no cars were passing on the highway. I talked to the farmer this morning and got the details.
