Raccoons for Sale

Conversation over morning coffee ...

Hubby (a.k.a. Peanut Gallery): GREAT … the compost needs to be buried and my back’s not in any shape to do it.

Moi: Put it outside for the raccoons.

Peanut Gallery: I haven’t seen any raccoons around in a while.

Moi (logically): Then we need to buy raccoons. I’ll put ‘em on the shopping list. How many do you want?

Peanut Gallery: I’m not BUYING raccoons when they are EVERYWHERE for free.

Moi: You just said they’re NOT HERE. Hold on - I’ll call Lowe’s…

Country livin’.

You just gotta love it…


  "Where's the garbage??"

PS – The Peanut Gallery maintains “the whole idea of BURYING garbage is to keep the raccoons from getting at it.” 

Well, excuse me for not grasping the whole raccoon concept…

I’m a city girl – I’m still learning.

The concept of raccoons as outdoor organic garbage disposal systems seemed perfectly logical to me…
