Yesterday, my husband took the boy for a walk in the field next to our house so I could get some cleaning done. It was a fair trade. When I got done, I let the dog outside and heard a bunch of crows pitching a fit. That was when a fox popped up out of the woods and started heading towards the field. Following my first instinct, I yelled at it, hoping to scare it off. But it just looked at me for a few seconds and trotted off into the field. I quickly called my husband to warn him. Luckily, he and the boy were at our gun-loving neighbor’s house. They hung out and watched the fox take off across the road and into the woods on the other side. Needless to say, I was quite happy to see my boys come home safely. But I did spend the rest of the afternoon checking the perimeter of our backyard while I played with my son, considering how I could use his foam baseball bat as a weapon, if necessary.
But I digress…
I made this last week, more so to get my mind off things. I had asked my watchers on Deviantart which stock to manipulate next and it ended up as a three-way tie. But this adorable little girl had gotten the most votes first. I had tried a totally different concept, but it just didn’t come out the way I had hoped. So, I started over and ended up creating Road Trip…
