Remember that creepy racoon from a week or so ago? It's back!! In the daylight!! This morning I was starting some laundry and glanced outside. Lo and behold, there was the racoon.
From this point on I'll refer to him as Rax. Evidently he thinks he's a family pet, so he needs a name. And I evidently think he's a guy because, well I don't know why. Anyway, at 8:15am on Resurrection Sunday, Rax decided raise himself out of his life of nocturnal living.
We watched him walk around, climb to the top of a huge tree, walk out on several branches, climb back down and then play on the tarp covering our garden area. After 20 minutes or so, Rax finally left. Then he came strutting through the front yard!! I can't imagine what would have happened if one of the 50 million people who walk their dogs down our street each day had happened to cruise by as Rax was sauntering by.
What is wrong with a racoon that hangs out in the daytime? Rax is a creep and I want him gone!! But since he's not gone, I'll let you see what we saw this morning.
