Fox and Skunk and the lonely streets of Colmar


Yesterday, on the way to Riquewihr, we mentioned the nearby town of Colmar, France, which is also picturesque. By pure coincidental fortune, we found three pictures of Fox and Skunk on Google street view, as they passed through that town. And maybe when you look at these pictures you will wonder where everyone else is.

Which simultaneously brings us to an explanation of how a loner like Fox came to spend so much time with Skunk.

You see, around Skunk, one tends to find a lot of space. And that space doesn't really have anyone in it. People and creatures, out of a surfeit of caution, give Skunk a wide berth, a very wide berth.

 For certain types, that kind of space can be soothing.

Fox is exactly of that type.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
