An excerpt from Sunny with a Chance of Happiness:
An Unexpected Guest, Right on Time
George took a deep, nostalgia-laced breath, reached for his socks, and froze.
A rustling noise erupted from the trees and brush to his right.
Too big to be a squirrel.
Not big enough to be a bear, right? Anyway, black bears weren’t likely to be too aggressive this time of year. No brand-new cubs to keep an eye on like back in the early spring.
Still, George strained to listen and see, ready to head for the front door in a hurry. He’d heard the rumors about mountain lions still hanging on in an area they were supposedly extinct from.
Heard more than a few of those bone-chilling screams in the night, too.
When the brush finally parted, he let out a grunt and relaxed a little.
Not a bear or any sort of cat after all.
A dog burst out into the yard instead.
