Fox

From as early as I can remember, I've been (inordinately?) pleased with and proud of my surname. Not because it's a name with any glorious history or accomplished forebears. It's just that "fox" means something. Even in elementary school, foxes were something like a totem for me, and classmates identified me in intriguing ways with the "fox" image.

Of course, I have quite a personal collection of fox items – prints and photographs, knickknacks, carvings, greeting cards, you name it.

Maybe because of, or perhaps despite that fondness, I truly enjoyed this silly one from I Can Has Cheezburger. I hope you will, too.

Not to worry, KirkE. I'm sure you'll soon find something else that will knock my socks off.

My favorite fox growing up was The Fox in The Little Prince. I guess some Foxes need taming more than others. My second favorite fox is Brother Fox in McCall-Smith's mystery series, The Sunday Philosophy Club, who visits the main character's Scottish garden in Edinburgh. A skittish, but intent creature whom the homeowner has come to love in her own, hands-off way.

And the third favorite Fox I know is a real person named Lisa. And she be foxy.
