9:23 PM, I'm out on the deck enjoying the last of tonight's gorgeous weather....and I hear raccoons chirrupping across the street. I think they're the big fat furry healthy 30-lb better-than-zoo specimens we saw on the telephone pole up by the wires, 4 ft from the bedroom window last month at 3am one Tuesday in July. The same ones we saw under the deck a couple weeks ago; the ones I worried were gonna beat up Emmie-kitty when we thought we lost her outside earlier this month. Ah well...post this one under Nature in Somerville.
They better not eat my tomatoes or knock over the friggin' trash cans.
