Almost Perfect

This could have been a perfect morning.

Fantastic sunrise gracing the horizon today after a heavy mid-day lightning storm yesterday, followed by waves of slow, steady monsoon rains through afternoon into evening produced this morning's peaceful, post-storm ambiance. An absolutely ideal morning if some damned idiot downslope had not set noisy hounds loose in the forest to harass the local bear family.

I don't blame the hounds for their enthusiasm, just the dog owner for being selfish and rude.

Now I see red, reinforcing deep-seated contempt for anyone using hounds for sport hunting.
