#805 – Grandma

I live in the same area that I grew up in as a kid. The kids in the neighborhood were outside past dark all the time. The rarest animals we would encounter were the occasional raccoon or opossum. Now it’s not unusual to see a fox or even a coyote running through the yards. A coyote even started charging at our little dog once before it realized my wife was there on the other end of the leash.

The Book of Biff #4 is coming soon!

    I love the red hoodie.

    and I actually used to track the foxes in our neighborhood back to thier fox holes.

    also, random guess…fairy tales week?

    That’s actually really neat…

    i assume because of the moon and darkness he’s walking at night.

    night picnic=awesome

    Biff’s brilliance never ceases to amaze. However, now he has to watch out for werewolves.

    Also, fairy tale week.

    At first I thought it was going to be about the moon following him, but then I remembered you’ve discussed that before.

    Wuha! Now that’s REALY genious!

    Reminds me of Harry Potter 3, where Lupin turns the Boggart-Moon into a deflating balloon.

    Hmmmmmm. Fairy tale week, yes. I like it. XD

    We hear coyotes all the time down at my gran’s. Keep the deer away, too. Well, until they move on, then all of a sudden the flowers are eaten.

    We used to have kangaroos hop down our street at 5am. Once, we heard a loud thump – one of them had tried to dumpster-dive in our greens bin.
    We get the occasional echidna, blue tongue lizards, geckos galore (they love our back wall in summer) and once a very lost koala. The only foxes I’ve seen were on TV.

    I presume the wolves will see the balloon moon (that rhymes!) and begin to howl… Thus, effecting early warning.

    Coyotes are supremely adaptable critters, and have enve been sighted in NYC’s Central Park. They’re also, in many places, growing bold enough to attack fairly large dogs, even in the presence of humans. They’ll think nothing of taking a dog in an fenced back yard, either. That’s the consequences human expansion.

  11. MaskedMan says:

    @ dartigen;
    One presumes then, that you’re from the land of Drop Bears and other assorted venomous wildlife… 😉

    Ah, so. I didn’t get that until Space Butler clued me in to the fact that this wasn’t *about* werewolves, wolverines or any of that.

    Biff simply believed the salesman who told him wolves were guaranteed to howl at the moon. Beware, Biff! It is only the moon, and not the wolves that the salesman could guarantee.

    Strange looking trees, BTW. I think that’s the first time I’ve failed to see a forest for the trunks.

  14. baughbe says:

    Sequoias ?

  15. Zach Light says:

    Hey! Thats my moon baloon….JK Great job.

    There is a possum living in the backyard under our woodpile, not to mention lots of snakes, but I’m pretty okay with all of them. I enjoy looking at all the animals living in and near my house- ornithological specimens, rodents, and residential pets. They’re all pretty neat!

  17. sco3tt says:

    Trees? At first I thought he was walking down the part in someone’s dirty brown hair. Then I realized it was probably just me. Yeah, that’s more likely.

  18. Radical Edward says:

    I used to live in the forest from 2003-2007. One night in 2006, I remember playing my music a little too loud and my father said “Knock it off!”. So I turned it down. Then we heard a howl. My father said “Knock it off!” and I told him “It’s not me!” Then my father looked outside and saw a pack of coyotes in the yard.

  19. Matt Lee says:

    Now Biff doesn’t have to look for werewolves to fight them. They come to him.

  20. Biff looks even paler than usual…

    I recommend Australian Cattle Dogs. Just get them after you have kids, and make sure that you have someone in the house with enough time to play with them. And a back yard to run around in.

    They’re herding dogs, with a strong instinct to watch the pack, and high energy levels to do so. If they are ever bored, they will make an unholy mess of you place. Our would play frisbee with herself, using the plates on the dining room table. She also liked to run around on the roof.
