2013: Crack o' Dawn Club

The following is a re-post from August 23, 2013

I get up every morning at 5:30 to beat the beauty-queens to a hot shower.  Then I sit and watch the world wake up.

Here's my daily animal count:

Monday- 20 hummingbirds buzz the field in the dark.  Yogaing, running laps, tossing rifles.

Tuesday- 3 rabbits in the dawn, jog-walk the track chanting "you can do it".

Wednesday- 1 determined fox gently stretching in the morning sun.

Thursday- 12 grumpy tortoises trudge to the showers, 20 minutes before breakfast.  Most have only one eye open and do not speak english.

At the rate they're devolving, I expect only a few amoebas to ooze past my deck tomorrow.  By Saturday, I'll have the entire place to myself.
