Skip's Blips

By Skip

No, I wasn't dreaming!

Awake very early, I blinked my sleepy eyes for a first glance at the backyard. One look and I was suddenly wide awake and thankful that I was looking out the window instead of walking around the backyard. In addition to the skunk, there was a hawk scouring the landscape for his morning meal from the top of our neighbor's shed. What if, I thought to myself, the hawk would take a fancy to the skunk? That could create a commotion that would wake up the neighborhood. Unfortunately (or fortunately) that didn't happen. The neighbors slept on, undisturbed, and both critters eventually wandered or flew away. Meanwhile I had captured my blip(s) for the day, almost before I was fully awake.
