    Devious & Daring Red Fox gets Breakfast-to-Go
    It was a sad day here on the Homestead Saturday when tragedy struck in broad daylight. It was the usual morning routine – let Josie, the 12 year-old-puppy, out the back patio door, walk on a few feet and let the girls, Anita and Blackie (hens), out and take Josie back in.
    As I let the girls out, I watched them run to their place where Bill puts their corn, just a few feet from where I was and near the deck.
