No, I don't want to talk about it.
Remember the baby skunk I mentioned seeing the other day? We've been seeing him every day since. And his five siblings. We wondered if mama had been hit by a car or eaten by something... Today when Aunt Marci went up to see the babies three of them ran out of the weeds and started to suck vigorously on her toes. That did it, Grandfather and Marci gathered them up and brought them down. Marci, Grandma and I worked at feeding them a little milk. One of the babies felt cold and would not swallow. Grandfather and Marci took them to Wildlife Images, a local wildlife rehabilitation center.
Somehow Grandfather convinced Brannon to pic one up long enough for a picture. I was rather surprised B went for it actually. That look on his face though...LOL!
Great-Grandma even got in on the skunk petting; and reminisced about a pet skunk they had.

Something I smelled very strongly all around the coop yesterday...
I paused for a moment then took another route back to the house, by way of my in-law's yard...
I really did not want to walk through that jungle of a path this evening...
I caught another glimpse this evening on the way up to give my birds their evening "snack" of yogurt and fruit/veggie scraps collected today. Under an old mobile home/trailer thingy that's just past and on the other side of that vw in the previous post. Well, now we know where our family of skunks is living this year.
At least it's not under our house...
