    Renewed Day by Day0

    One morning I was looking for fossils in Grafius Run while enjoying a hot cup of coffee. Why? Well, Grafius Run flows through our backyard, and after a good rain, it always churns up fossils. I enjoy looking for them, and over the years, I have accumulated a nice collection. After being bent over for

    Over the years, I have had the privilege of hunting in every one of our 50 states and, in doing so, have discovered something that all of the lower 48 continuous states have in common. Coyotes.
