Taking Time To Tell

clock on table in lobby of eye surgery last week, because I could

Time to tell you The Rest of The Raccoon Story....


I researched How to get rid of Raccoons! there is a ton of info out there. most of which we could not do. Like put a rag/sponge soaked in ammonia in a bowl and sit by the fence. Or do the same with cayenne pepper.
A. the fence is 100 by 100, so where to sit it
B. Big Boy might ruin his sweet nose

The research said  the fence with coyote pee... research shows $32.00 a gallon!!!!!  we used a little human Pee (cost zero) around the hole they use the most and since research also said they hate loud noise, I prepared to repel the little rascals.

Monday night at 6 pm, which is the witching hour for them to appear in the yard, Big jumped up and ran to the door and I followed and there he/she was, wandering past the pool ladder. I grabbed the Raccoon repeller, better known as my spoon and cake tin, and beat it like a drum all over the yard..

I think I heard What The …. are you doing? from the living room sofa, but we never saw another coon that night.... waiting to see if they were just spreading the love to other neighbors...

Raccoon MANIA! again!


See these cute and innocent looking Raccoons? The photos are from prior post, May of 2014 HERE.
Warning, the link is full of Raccoon Porn....

For the past 8 days, 3 to 5 raccoons have been making us crazy, with noise and sudden appearances in our yard. Big can't lay still. From 6 pm until bedtime he paces and stands at the back door. he KNOWS they are out there. 3 nights ago, at midnight I heard a racket, it sounds like horses were on the roof and loud chittering.... they skipped the next night, but last night at 2:35 AM, the screeching started, all you know what broke loose. Big and I jumped from bed and raced to the back door to turn on the flood lights, which usually makes them leave.

NOT this time... they were mating!   you have NEVER heard such a racket. see below what I found on line... circled in RED because I am Red Hot over these critters. in 2014 there were two and now there are FIVE plus one of these IS HUGE and looks pregnant... we tried to have a trapper trap and remove. that did not work out. Yes, we live in the city limits, but this is Florida.


To Here The Sound go to YouTube HERE   Yes, the sound will go away when the FULL moon starts to wane, but they will not... they will be here to torment Big Boy and ME... Bob can't hear them. Big can hear every sound they make, including claws clicking on pool deck and laping of water from the pool.... Hurry winter... they sleep most of the time.


Headerless? Less Headers?



This is a header from the PAST... When I first started, I created a new one almost every post. I must say I came up with a few clever ones. I made the decision to create one and leave it, but every now and then I would change it up. I have 8 posts under HEADER Label Here, and today I am adding a few that are not there. I have most of my headers in a post for Just in Case the computer crashes... since the newest comes up first on the label, it will require scrolling for anyone that has time to waste in the past where headers were my past time... I first posted the first one below, changed it to the 2nd one, then to the 3rd one and then back to number 2.




These are the only ones created in the past two years. Tell me about your headers. Do you change often, not at all, play with creating them...  DO HEADERS EVEN Matter any more?

Give me your Blah! Blah! Blah! on the subject of Headers... please.
