If you think MY thoughts are outrageous, how far out do yours sound now?

Given that your last two posts paint a picture of a man who is either deeply paranoid and/or who flatters himself greatly in his impressions of his own self-importance, I would say that my thoughts sound pretty darn rational in comparison right now. Shall we take a vote?

Mark a giant government conspiracy would involve lots of people. It is hard for people to keep secrets short term, and even harder for people to keep secrets long term. I find it highly improbable that there is a giant government cover-up involving this tragic incident simply because I do not think it would be possible to keep the location of that plane, were it known, secret for very long.


And they have no tracking of any cell phone on that plane except a possible cell ping from the copilot's cell phone?

When we visit Eric's parents in the wilds of Wisconsin, we get very poor cell coverage. I imagine it is even worse in the middle of the ocean!

Angela, you have the west coast covered. I do my best to feed the east coast raccoons, but I only see them in infrared, so it is hard to name them.

My job is to keep putting out food, and keep them coming here. Actually, I feed every animal that comes in my yard. Foxes, skunks, porcupines, deer, turkeys, pheasants, bear, and even stray cats.

I feed snakes also, but only pre-frozen food......

Steve


I deliberately feed plants, cats, raccoons, birds, squirrels, opossums and astronomers. I inadvertently feed skunks, but I'll confess to liking them. Skunks are really beautiful animals.

Marcel, Donna and Magoo all came by last night for a visit. I never see Who, What, When, Where and Why because I was unable to socialize them properly last summer. I did a very good job of socializing the previous year's litter. I am hoping for the best this year.

You know, if you have never done any car maintenance yourself, that would not be an unreasonable assumption...

The Tomorrow People 1x19 Modus Vivendi

Edit:

A raccoon walks into a bar and asks for some peaches, the bartender says "we don't sell peaches here" so the raccoon leaves. He comes back the next day asking for some peaches the bar tender says "I told you yesterday, we don't sell peaches here" so the raccoon leaves. He comes back the next day, again asking for peaches, the bar tender says "look, Ive told you time and time again that we don't sell peaches. If you ask again I'm going to nail you to that wall". The raccoon leaves. He comes back the next day and asks the ba tender "do you have any nails?" the bar tender says "no", the raccoon says "ok, then I want some peaches."


That is very much like the duck song!

I grew up one of four children in a home where education was highly valued. My parents never paid us for good grades. Good grades were expected and the four of us seldom failed to deliver the goods. My parents did make one exception though when it came to report cards. If any one of us brought home straight A's, my mom made ravioli for dinner for the whole family.

Well, Eva went to the groomers for a bath today. Our groomer gives "report cards" covering things like coat condition, skin condition, evidence of lumps or sores, evidence of parasites and overall general behavior. Eva got the highest marks possible in each category and under general behavior the groomer wrote "was a perfect angel".

Color me a proud kitty-mama! Somebody's getting ravioli!!!!!

The Crazy Raccoon Lady strongly advises against the kissing of raccoon butts! That would be a very good way to ingest raccoon roundworms, a parasite lethal to human beings.

Marcel dropped by the backyard for a visit last night. We don't see him too often now that he is all grown up, but we always enjoy seeing him when he does decide to come "home" for a little visit (and a snack). After Marcel polished off Spawnie's kibble, he looked around for his grapes. I was out of grapes... bad Raccoon Mother that I am. I was, however, baking sugar cookies at the time and Marcel found one of these to be an acceptable dessert substitute. He sat around on the back porch for another 40 minutes or so, just grooming himself and being bored and hoping that I would come back outside with another cookie for him. I figured one cookie was more than enough for an already pudgy little raccoon boy. When he finally figured out that he was not going to get another cookie, he ambled off.

Life with raccoons is so much fun!!! I simply cannot understand why so many people dislike them.

That is a very well trained raccoon! I have seen raccoons nearly bend in half to groom themselves, but I have never seen one of my backyard beasties do a forward roll. Wow!
