We have roadrunners here in the Ozarks too. In fact just had one run across the road in front of me and up the driveway of the house I was passing. No coyote tho'.
I'm off to annual Summer Conference for most of the week. sigh Even though I am always glad I went, I hate that it signifies the end of Summer... my favorite time of year. School starts in the middle of August, interrupting all my fun. But alas, I'm the teacher so I guess I have to go!!!
UPDATE: T says it's hers!!!!!
