You know what other animal we should have in my country but don't? Beavers. Beavers rock. I saw them at the zoo in Washington DC when I was on vacation and ever since it's been my life's ambition to have beavers living in my back garden. We only get like...otters or something here...and y'know they don't have the teeth thing, and they're too dumb to build dams. Beavers rock.

Y'know, martha, raccoons actually purr--yes, like cats! Maybe your raccoon was purring and not growling.

That's a great story, martha! I have a raccoon story myself. When I was younger my parents were obsessed with going on family camping trips. One night during one of the trips (I was about 7 years old) we were all asleep in the tent when my dad woke up and heard a scratching sound. Nothing was scratching the tent, though, so he went back to sleep. A little bit later he was woken up again by a banging sound. He couldn't figure out what it was, and it eventually stopped, so he fell back asleep.

Well, the mystery was solved the next morning. A raccoon had clawed its way through the screen on the little pop-up window on the top of our van and jumped inside. Then it ate an entire loaf of bread and hotdog buns and left "special surprises" (aka lots of crap) on the driver's seat and the floor near the gas pedal! The banging noise had been the raccoon trying to jump back out of the window and climb out. Somehow it had managed to make it without knocking itself unconscious first.

I had the hots for Fess Parker when i was younger...coonskin hat n all

Me and my best friend Lillian
And her blue tick hound dog Gideon.
sitting on the front porch
cooling in the shade
singing every song that radio played
Waiting for the Alabama sun to go down.....
Emmylou Harris Red Dirt Girl.

I that song. I bought a beautiful dog boook a couple of weeks ago for my friend's birthday. I got to see a blue tick hound dog at last.....it was baying up a tree.

We have lotsa things that go bump and scratch and rustle and chew and mate (you should read about Australian antechinus...sex maniacs...in my roof!!) and generally have a good time in the night here.
A friend of mine here has Lyme's disease, somethig I had thought hadn't made it's way to oz...but it has now.Rabies sounds scary.

But racoons look so cute. i like their spectacles.

furry creatures

Emmylou Harris is from my hometown. "Red Dirt Girl" is a great song. I saw her on the "O Brother Where Art Thou/Down From The Mountain" Tour last month. As a local tribute, she did "Boulder to Birmingham"

I often see deceased racoons, possums and armadillos on the side of the road on my way to work. We found a dead deer the other day.

HOW could you mistake a deer from something else? What else could it have been? A Centaur?

I didn't mistake a deer for something else. I couldn't remember the exact animal...if you read my post, you would notice that I was relating a story that someone else told me.

Growling racoons? In Orange County?

Where the hell did it come from? The hissing opossums are bad enough, now racoons!

Well, we have a ditch by our house, with lots of trees and stuff. People in the neighborhood have fruit trees, and then there are those who leave the flaps to their dog doors open and have dog food sitting out at night.

My condolences for you having to sit through the obvious torture of anything related to the "Brother" soundtrack.

Loved the second part.
"Is that a deer... no... wait, it's a centaur! Of course!"
