A red fox in North Dakota: "This is the big one! You hear that, Elizabeth? I'm coming to join ya, honey!"

Out in the west and in places like Cabela's stores, you come across a lot of stuffed animals. The lobby of our Super 8 motel in Jackson Hole, Wyoming had a stuffed badger leering out at us as we ate our complimentary continental breakfast (and it was for sale, too). On numerous occasions, I've noticed stuffed red foxes. This inevitably makes me think of the great comedian Redd Foxx. I can't help myself from shouting out "Lamont!" and humming the catchy Quincy Jones "Sanford and Son" theme song, as the poor mounted woodland creature stares out at me through his glass eyes.
