We like Olivetos, rather than some of the more famous places out here.

Imagine my surprise to find that Rusty is not a boy, but rather a girl... and she has had two babies.

I'll try to get a picture if she comes back soon. Rusty is a blond raccoon who is one of our less frequent visitors.

edit: For a picture of Rusty, go to the first photo in this thread taken in March of 2018.

Can domesticated chickens fly?

Honestly, this is a serious question from somebody who has always lived in a city.

I'm glad you are home and still have some time to rest before deciding what to do next.

I spent most of my career working with young children in a hospital setting. The first year was exceptionally brutal. I caught everything that came down the pike. After that things improved, but cold viruses mutate very easily and I would still get a cold or two every year, even after 25 years of preschoolers "training" my immune system. In my current job I work with graduate students in a university setting. They know how to cough in another direction and most of them are even smart enough to wash their hands now and again! With my new job, I've had one cold in three years - a "gift" from my niece and two nephews.

Children are definitely walking germ factories!!! Good thing they're so darn cute.

Wishing you well, my friend.

Byron, my Auntie Marilyn was diagnosed with congestive heart failure several years ago. Her cardiologist did not think that a pacemaker would help. He did not suggest any surgery or any intervention outside of the medications she was already taking. He just said that she should enjoy life and not worry too much about it.

She is currently 91 years young. She has good days and bad days, tires easily, but still manages to live at home with my Uncle Al, eat out occasionally, go to family parties etc.

My neighbor Ernie also lived with congestive heart failure for many years. The biggest effect it had on him was that he was frequently tired and had to rest when he was doing things. That made him angry because he always had so many projects that he wanted to do. He was a retired contractor and loved to stay busy working on his home and the homes of his children. Anyway, Ernie was nearly 92 when he passed away.

Wishing you peace and more good days than bad ones.

Poor trash panda couldn't open it to get to the delicious goodies inside :(

Our raccoons pose in exactly the same way... between appetizers and entrees, or entrees and desserts!

A mother skunk and two rather well grown babies stopped by this afternoon to eat seeds that had fallen out of the bird feeder. Usually skunks don't come out during the day, but the mama was obviously nursing and I'm guessing rather hungry. Tonight she came back, but with three babies this evening. Very cute!

Sue, your godson Sampson also stopped by this evening. He is growing rapidly.

Time for bed :-)


FIVE babies?!! That's quite unusual!


That has been my experience too. We had a mama with five kits one year, but 2-4 has been more typical of our urban raccoons, with fertility declining as the mama ages.
