I saw a big red fox in our backyard one morning last week. It was checking out the fort. All this time I've been silently cursing the person who has been allowing their dog to cr** in our yard, and I think I've found the real culprit. So I'm sorry to all the dog owners on Greenleaf, and I wish you and your dogs long, happy lives.
By the way, if you visit the Arbor Day Foundation, you can sign up for a six-month membership for just ten bucks. And in return, the foundation will send ten trees your way. Cool deal.
