Dear Readers,

I proudly present our www.SweetgumLife.com February Blog Launch Extravaganza!

Every business day (Monday-Friday), you will have a chance to win wonderful prizes from some pretty amazing people!

Here’s how to win today’s $25 Fandango gift certificate that I purchased to launch www.SweetgumLife.com!

Please visit www.SweetgumLife.com, my new web site, to be a part of the contest.

I’ve not only got a new name and site, but now I also have the same name on Instagram and Facebook!

After several years of writing for www.thewritesteph.com, I’m going “self-hosted,” so I’ll only have theWriteSteph up for just a few more days. 🙂 Kinda sad, but upward and onward!

What does the Fox Say?

By the time Ylvis performed his Internet hit on the Today Show and one of my child’s school mates passed it on to her, I can guess that it isn’t very cutting edge for this suburban mom to post about it on my post about growing up in rural Alabama.

Lefty looked it up on YouTube and played it for me this weekend. (See…I am far behind the cultural curve.) I really liked the tune. My girlfriend said that it sounded very 1980’s; it made me hope (hope) that the European pop sound from the 80’s will return. Why not? Leggings are back.

I’m going to replace the harpsichord sound with my flute and see how it goes. I think it’ll sound pretty cool.

Here’s the transition to my growing up rural…

There are foxes in south Alabama. Dad has seen them. He said that there are both red and gray foxes down there. There aren’t a lot of them. I’ve never seen one, so I can’t tell you what they say.

There were plenty of coyotes in our pasture in Jachin. If a cow had a calf and didn’t get up soon after birthing, my dad would have to watch to ensure that the calf wouldn’t be taken by a coyote. So there you go.

What does the coyote say? Ow—–ow——-ow! Or maybe Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!

Whatever.

But as for Ylvis…I hear that he stuck up a book deal with Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. Rock on, Ylvis!

This calf was deserted by his mom, and our dog took over its care.
