I Don't Know What I'm Doing, But It Feels So Right
Hounds! When Chris arrived in England last month (five days before I did for logistical reasons), he had the opportunity to see a fox-hunting demonstration at a town fair in Cornwall. There was no fox, obviously, since the U.K. banned hunting with hounds in 2004 (hunters are fined the equivalent of $10,000 if they're caught in the act), so the red-coated riders and their trusty pack ran around and around a small, enclosed field to show off their prowess. They must all be freelance now.
Chris told me some of the crazy hound faces reminded him of Arthur, as did the break-away guy who stopped for a poop.
I love how they're running around for no reason.
