Backyard bandit

This weekend we stuck around the house and started some spring cleaning. Mostly garage cleaning and reorganizing which lead to bike maintenance which lead to bike shopping which then turned into a Sunday morning bike ride through the neighborhood. Oh well, the cleaning can wait.

Spotted this grub eating bandit strolling through our backyard just as we were sitting down to lunch. Like most raccoons, he didn't seem to have a care in the world.

Skunks in our garage, raccoons in our backyard, wild turkeys on our fence... you'd think we were living in the backwoods next to Grizzly Adams.

Here's a blurry pic of the skunk that decided to have a nap in our garage a couple of years ago. Still remember lifting up the door and seeing him snoozing at my feet. I also clearly remember my wife panicking and trying to shut the front door while I was desperately trying to get back inside. It was like a scene from Laurel and Hardy only with more colourful language.
