On the side of a hill in the deep forest green, tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground,
blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves washes the grave with silvery tears,
a soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions, generals order their soldiers to kill
and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten

A Domestic Coyote Xmas

Just checking back in, busy with domestic things. And to wish you a Merry Xmas, the Christmas Coyote:

He looks a little doughy there. Here is a crisper image.

Yes, the coyote bakes, and cooks. A versatile trickster he is.

Hope you all are having a good Xmas.

Ah, the Christmas Coyote.

Seems a lot like the Christmas Hedgehog, only much more edible.

Happy holidays!

That's a cool cookie cutter. Where'd you get it?

Sheila, and while it's less cute, it's also less prickly. Although I don't think Laura would like it as much (at least not as a sugar cookie).

Mattw, thanks. I think we got it form a vendor at a local outdoor fair called "Yankee Peddler." We bought it several years ago, although YP has a good tradition of keeping their vendors. So it was probably from the Little Fox Factory. I don't see the one we have, but they have another Coyote on their "Animals" page.

Camille, thanks. Good to see you back en communicado.
