A Christmas Story
I called Mrs. Spencerblog to tell her about what I'd just seen and it put her in mind of something she herself had witnessed an hour earlier.
She'd gotten up early to take a client's dogs for a Christmas morning walk. In the woods she looked up to find a hawk looking down at her from a tree. They exchanged eye contact and a moment later the hawk took off.
"He was carrying a squirrel in his talon as he flew away," my wife said. "Ewwww!"
"That's a nice story," I replied. "Was the squirrel wearing a Santa's hat?"
