Just got home from late night walk:
Fox count =10 🦊
(though @angusfranz thinks I was counting some of them twice)
Friendly cats = 0
Unexpected cackling gulls circling in the sky = 2
& a lone pigeon.

With our coffers and our energies pretty much drained, we are going to take a bit of a hiatus. Have a few more pieces to publish but we are closed to all entries until the fall. In the meantime everyone’s invited to support our writers fund!
