A week ago we were home for a late lunch and heard a vehicle suddenly slowing down. It had courteously stopped to allow the largest armadillo ever to cross in front of it. The 'dillo pushed through the gate and marched eastward until it disappeared, perhaps into the burrow among the stump roots of a pecan that's no longer there. The creature had a pinkish splotch on its back toward its neck. We've never seen one in broad daylight before. The On Deck corn now has tassels and silk. A nocturnal creature has been consuming squash as it forms.
