• • • Good Monday, Everyone!  You know what that means.  It’s time to title this photo!  It’s a tricky one, to get that brain workin’…. Please leave your caption, title, or commentary in the comment section of this post and you’ll automatically be in the running for an Artemis Necklace which Mike has adorned with a trail of coyote tracks.  And if you’ve not seen the post below, please do scroll down for an update and a pic of Daisy & Frisco that is so darling I actually feel myself melting when I look at it.  Then come back here and give this photo a name!
