In praise of tables…and coyotes

Yo, dog

Tom and I often end up at a coffee shop during our walks, so this is just a little appreciation post for tables. I mean, regular waist-level tables that you can rest your arms on and lean into, not the barbaric knee-level tables in coffee shops that are meant to be ‘casual’ but are actually the opposite, cruelly exposing one’s soft underbelly and leaving us open to all manner of predatory attack. And what do you do with your arms?? It’s a minor quibble, but for those of us who are not comfortable exposing ourselves to strangers, give us normal tables. And thanks for the coffee.

Also, we saw a coyote along Ravine Drive next to MacKinnon Ravine. He seemed unimpressed by our presence, focused on something in the bush. Also, he seemed to be molting, or hadn’t seen a brush for awhile. Tom spotted this one, and also the last one we saw in Glenora near his old house. He’s got some kind of coyote radar.

Run away little squirrel/rabbit/dog/cat…

The walk was pleasant enough. -2C but very windy, as all of the days have been in April.
