This is the lunar eclipse from Wednesday as seen from my front porch. I sat outside with hot chocolate, wrapped in a blanket, and jumped at every rustle of the leaves. It was windy, but I couldn’t help thinking about the giant skunk I had seen outside of my house a few weeks ago. He was huge and white with a black stripe, instead of the other way around. Cool looking, but stinky. Then my hairdresser told me yesterday about the giant coyotes that are running rampant in parts of Butler County. Supposedly they are as big as German Shepherds. I don’t know what to be more afraid of, giant skunks or giant coyotes.
