I lived with a raccoon 11 years. She was a piece of work.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

Well I was much younger then and was a good climber.

She liked to sleep in the crook of my neck at my shoulder and head. Many was the time she put that pointy nose of her's right at my ear and start to snore.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

Re: The things i could have learned!!

Had a coon when I was young. Loved taking him to the creek and watch him work. He grew large and got mean at feeding time. Dad said it was time for him to go. He hung around for a few days outside then took an extended walkabout. He loved nightcrawlers.

The difference between dreamers and achievers is action.
One try is worth a thousand guesses.
