but with some Finn Sisu everything goes...

LOL!!! I know all about Finn Sisu!!! Eric is only half Finn, but I think Eric got a Sisu gene from his father and Sisu appears to be autosomal dominant!

Wow! There were so many excellent entries for raccoon names that I had to give every kit a middle name. Thank you for all the wonderful name suggestions.

I must admit, I do love a "theme". Rob Smith recommended nut names, as these are Peanut's children, and I absolutely loved that idea.

The names of this year's raccoon kits will henceforth be:

Walnut Bailey Korpela (Godparents Rob and Uli)

Hazelnut Tanooki Korpela (Godparents Rob and Valete)

Brazilnut Bjorn Korpela (Godparents Rob and janneseti)

and

Macademia Bobo Korpela (Godparents Rob and David S.)

Thank you, everyone, for playing this game so enthusiastically.

We have a nephew teaching English in China right now, and he is having a WONDERFUL experience, but he is 20 and we are not. I'm too old to be uprooted, for any amount of money.

Instead of regulating any of it, our government walks in lockstep with them and nothing improves.

Oh silly me. I was under the impression that republicans believed that regulation is bad, bad, bad.

Last night I was sitting on a porch step feeding Peanut and her babies. Peanut was right at my feet most of the time. Her babies were behind her, except for one exceptionally brave kit who sometimes stood right next to mama.

At one point, Peanut got thirsty and went to the water bowl, which was across from me and slightly behind me. In doing so she inadvertently placed me between herself and her babies. When she realized that I was between her and her babies, Peanut gave me a particularly long,, low, evil warning growl.

It did not matter that I hadn't moved and that SHE was the one who had accidentally placed me between herself and her babies! (Raccoons are not very good at accepting responsibility.)

It also did not matter that she and I were "friends". Well... as much as one can be friends with a wild animal.

At that moment in time, I was a threat to her babies and Peanut made sure I knew that she was keeping an eye on me.

From now on though, I'm going to place the water dish in front of me so that Peanut has no reason to go behind me.

Live and learn...

Lots of entries. I might have to have Eric simply draw names, as there are already too many good raccoon names here!

An excellent start to our contest! Thank you, Rob.

Hint: The best raccoon names are unisex. I cannot tell boy babies from girl babies in the first year. After that, the girls become obvious because they have litters.

Greetings Critter People - I have WONDERFUL news!

I'm a great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandmother!!!!

Peanut just showed up with four darling little raccoon kits.

I didn't want to scare them with a camera on their first visit. I just worked on acclimating the babies to my presence tonight. Raccoon kits are quite trainable and I should be able to take pictures in a week or so.

This "blessed event" means that it is time for one of my favorite summer traditions, a "Name The Raccoon Kits" contest!

Submit baby names by posting in this thread. Next Wednesday evening I will pick the winners. You may submit as many names as you wish, but obviously only four names will be chosen as there are only four babies.

Step right up and submit a name for a chance to be a raccoon godparent!!!

Let the contest begin!

Hello friends. Time to declare a winner.

For those not in the know, that was Oski Bear, UC Berkeley's mascot. When Oski paces the sidelines at football games, Eric thinks Oski looks like Richard Nixon. But I digress...

Third place goes to KWSN The Holy Hand Grenade! with: "Oski wears gloves?"

Second place goes to Carlos with: "Erick that's not any better."

First place goes to Sirius with: "I'll make do with the bear necessities."

PM going out to our winner now.

Our cats barf often and we recently broke our little spot-wash carpet cleaning machine. Our new one arrived in a big box.

I opened the box.

Step 1 - Locate screw pack attached to handle.

I closed the box.

Another item for Eric's honey-do list.
