So, tonight I’m sitting in my favorite reading spot at mom & dad’s – curled up on the chaise lounge in front of the bay window – when all of a sudden I hear this screeching/barking-like sound. Brian and my dad were watching a ball game, so I didn’t really pay attention to it at first because it was kind of being drowned out by the TV.
But then it got closer. And louder.
I said “Daddy? Could you mute the TV for a sec?”
And sure enough, there it was again, only closer.
It sounded as if a dog had been frightened so badly that it was actually shrieking!
And it also sounded like it was directly outside of the window where I was sitting. So I crawled up into the bay window and peered out trying to find the source of the noise.
My dad told me it was just the coyotes.
“Oh. Just the coyotes.” I said.
Okay, so I knew that they were out here, that wasn’t so shocking. The part I didn’t know was that they actually come right up to the house.
I’m pretty sure I won’t be going outside alone at night!
