Unwelcome Visitors

Abby woke us up this morning having an absolute hissy-fit.  She was barking in a hysterical bark one that was very un-like her “coyote bark” so we were wondering what she was up to, but kind of unconcerned.  Hubby got up before I did (normal) and looked out the window, “She’s just barking in all directions.”

“Humm,”  I replied (normal for that early — 5:30am).  Finally he got a shower and headed out in the truck but I heard him stop and praise Abby.  So I decided I had better get up and check it out.  Hubby was staring up in to a small oak tree as I headed out and I asked him what it was, his reply, “The cutest thing you ever saw.”


This is what I saw when I got there.


This is what I saw when someone had enough curiosity to look down.


You can learn quite a bit from raccoons — just because you’re cute, doesn’t mean people want you around, especially if your destructive (physically and mentally.)



And don’t bring the family — ’cause they’re most likely just as destructive as you!

Sorry Lana, no pictures of Abby this time but I’ve got you in mind!
