06:40, 58F, ground fog, wolf light, partly cloudy. birds up and singing. guard dog with sheep. donkeys want hay. pastel dawn.
10:00, 72F, overcast. got 1 egg. 6 does in the sheep pasture watching me warily.. was glad to see them. did I malign the rednecks? nah..
coyote coming out of the scrub on the way to CK.
med. low tide, coming in. 70's, SE breeze, 3-5. mended bait seine. warm in the sun. annie's for lunch - fried oysters and lima beans.. worked on trawl after lunch.
15:40, high tide, SW breeze, 5 knts. osprey working on nest in the pine by the lab.
3-4 ft. alligator dead on the shoulder by sweet water curve. probably looking for water and didn't make it. this drought is the pits. florida always has droughts and floods but lately, the past 10 yrs., the droughts have gotten a lot worse.
16:10, got home just as the sheep forced the gate and ran into the yard. dog and I put them back in the fold. naughty sheep.. acting like goats.
got 2 eggs. tuna ate some and drank water. wish I could move her back to the horse barn. live and laurel oaks turning yellow and loosing their leaves.
next week they will be sporting bright green ones.

I sure hope it works out for your medicine! Definitely not fair!

I like the way you decribe the wildlife, must be the biologist in you. :))
