It's been West Texas windy of late. The breeze broke up the ice on the lake as I predicted. Still some snow banks and mud preventing the move over. New moon and a true sound of Spring last night- there was a woodcock drumming and "kee-wee" -ing on the hill for a mate. I hope the coyotes don't get him. I had to run off a bunch of them the other night while out with Iggy. Despite her desperation to get with kittens, Ms. Belle has figured out the coyotes and owls can't get to her in the dog kennels, so she's taken to coming and going into the garage through them.
