Friday Faves - Foxes

Friday is one of my favorite days of the week. Work is ending and the weekend is beginning, new movies come on at the theater, you order take-out and go home to veg on the couch or have a few drinks with friends. Friday is casual, Friday is relaxing, Friday is the perfect day to post some of my favorite things.

The fox is one of my favorite animals. They are cunning beasts of storybook fables and in real life they are incredibly adaptable creatures.

When I was living in Colorado, I had a close-fox-encounter in downtown Denver. I'd been playing poker with some friends and in the early wee hours of the morning (2am-ish) I was strolling back to my car, parked two blocks off one of the major streets in downtown Denver. As I got closer to the car, a dog ran across the street and stopped under a streetlight.

Thinking someone's pet had gotten loose, I tried to coax it over with a "Heeeere doggydoggydoggy."

I was not drunk.

I swear.

When it turned in my direction, I realized it wasn't a dog at all, but a red fox. After giving me a scornful glance ("Did you just call me a DOG?? Idiot!"), it trotted off and disappeared between two houses.


Here are some other neato foxy items:
