I woke up sick!! Runny nose, sore throat, cough the whole nine yards. I am very bummed. And I don't have one bit of garlic in the house! I took the last of the dayquil and tried to go out to do some of the work I wanted to do and just can't. I was standing watching the chickens scratch around my feet and looked up and about 30 yards away was a big coyote running along my fence line. I had a saw in one hand and a garden fork in the other and took off around the side of my chicken house. We met around the corner of the chicken house (there was still a fence between us so don't worry) and I started yelling and screaming like a mad indian and shaking my weapons and banging on anything I could. He tucked his tail, laid back his ears and took off like a shot. He looked back only once when he was about 100 yds away.
Yep first thing on my list is a shotgun. Time to get pro-active.
