Awoke to the sound of coyotes about a half hour ago -- two, about a mile apart and howling awfully mournfully, judging by the sound. A little while later, heard the screech of an owl, and saw some shooting stars before deciding to come indoors. The mosquitoes take the joy out of outdoor living. Not that they don't come inside, but it's far worse outside.

A guy who gave me a ride into Palomas yesterday also mentioned he'd heard coyotes recently. But, he added, he's still overrun by rodents.
