Random drivel

.

We enjoy our nightly skunk visitors, occasional air pollution aside. They’re comical to watch but their presence often involves residual piles of poo. That normally isn’t an issue, but this morning’s deposit has definitely crossed the line.

What up skunk!

Three acres of grass, fields and woods and you have to void your bowels on our kitchen landing?

Not cool skunk, most assuredly not cool.

Well that’s a unique wine review.

.

.

And apparently not well received.

Have you ever wondered what your cat is really thinking? Judging from this picture of Lord Dudley Mountcatten, I’ve done something unforgivable.

Damn it, now I can’t either.

  1. Wow, those skunks have some nerve! And Sir Dudley seems to know something that you thought only you knew, and he’s plotting your demise as we stare at this picture. I think that wine review was definitely a hallucination. I had that very faucet in my old house, and now I am going to see it every time one like it appears…..and his name is Scrat, the saber tooth squirrel from Ice Age.

    1. Skunks are little black and white balls of attitude.
      Time will tell what I’ve done to upset his Lordship … probably with a well placed hairball.
      Scrat? I’m not sure I approve of this name.

      1. We are finding it cost prohibitive. That stuff is just so costly. We have 420 sqft of back deck. At $30 per sqft to install, that is almost $13,000. That is a sizable chunk of dough exiting the bank account at one time.

  2. River, you are looking at the skunk thing all wrong. As far as the skunks are concerned, they were gifting you their output to use for fetilizer for your beautiful outdoor space. Just, they did not know where you wanted it, so left it for you so you could put it where it was most needed. They were actually, by their standards, honouring you in the best way they new how.
    My own cat (now long dead, this was half a century ago) used to gift me with headless rats. He left them on my bed every few days. He would eat the brains, obviously a cat delicacy, and suck out the blood, then leave the meat so I could share in his bounty. He was a fantastic hunter. I’M just glad he never did this with the wild rabbits he killed. Those he ate all by himself. Kept him fed for a few days each.
    Having never seen the movie, I don’t do Disney, those taps just look like taps to me. I think you are all hallucinating.

    1. So you’re saying that was strategically positioned poo? How… thoughtful?
      I’m glad Lord Dudley doesn’t eat his kills. Headless rats are not who I want to share my bed with.
      As for the faucet, trust me… it looks like the squirrel.

  3. I can relate to the skunk poo on your kitchen landing. To me, it’s like walnut leavings (from a walnut tree in our yard) on our front porch and sidewalk by squirrels who disdain the large yard in which they could eat their meals. I wouldn’t mind, except for the stain the leavings leave if I don’t sweep them into the grass in short order. It’s enough to make me “see red.”
