A friend just pm'd me with the suggestion of Wilfred, so I will post it here with the other suggestions.

Hard to tell if skunks are male or female, unless little ones are trailing behind. Skunks don't stand up on their hind legs like raccoons.

We have a new skunk visitor to our backyard. He/she??? is small, seems young, and has an exceptionally grand tail.
A better looking skunk I cannot imagine.

Name suggestions?

...Then my brain jumped into strange mode and had you disposing of the evidence of some unspeakable act by burying it under the rhubarb patch, which prompted the growth spurt......


I believe all s@h posters, even the most irritating ones (of which, thankfully, there are darn few!), are present and accounted for...

A rescue :)

So happy that the worker figured out how to reunite the babies with their mama! When I started reading the news clip, I had a sinking feeling that the story was going to end with the worker taking the babies to some sort of animal rescue place. Thank goodness he realized that the mama was only off getting food and that she would be back for her kits. Good job, human!!!

Oh Martha!

Martha, Martha, Martha.

Ever I saw you as "Her Royal Highness of House-wifery"... my "Majestic Matriarch of Meal Preparation", a veritable "Sultana of Sustenance", an "Empress of All Things Edible".... heck... the very "Dominatrix of Domesticity"!!!

How could she have failed me so? Woe is me!!!

But wait. Could this failure of a recipe been printed as a simple test of my faith?

Oh Martha!!! I should NEVER have doubted you.

Can you find it in your heart to forgive your humble servant?

Darn you, Martha Stewart!!!

The rhubarb in my garden is growing phenomenally well this year, due to the oddly alternating rain showers and periods of warm weather that we've been having out here this spring. I felt like baking this afternoon and decided to surprise Eric with an upside-down rhubarb cake. I found a good sounding recipe by Martha Stewart on-line.

The recipe called for a 9 inch cake pan with 2 inch sides, which I used.

The cake rose well above the pan sides, there is a layer of melted butter now burnt to the bottom of my oven and my kitchen smells like smoke.

I have a 10 inch cake pan with 2 inch sides. Why didn't Martha tell me to use that pan?

Gopher Digging a Hole

Pocket gophers treat my vegetable garden like their own personal Farmers Market.

Is it bad that I don't shed a tear when our cat Joker dines upon a pocket gopher?

Makes perfect sense, as raccoons are not known for their discriminating palates!
