Item the first: Yesterday, a Chinook helicopter flew directly over Camp Borepatch at about 200 feet altitude. The rotor noise literally shook the house.
Item the second: Last night while sitting out on the porch, I listened to the coyotes singing. At 7:45 PM.
Item the second reminds me that I have rifles that would do a dandy job on the coyotes, who have no idea that I could. Item the first reminds me that the boomstick isn't helpful in every situation.
It was an oddly peaceful realization.
