Operation Raccoon


First off I'm hoping you all had a wonderful and memorable Thanksgiving. We went to my Sister and Brother-in-laws's home and enjoyed traditonal faire with all the trimmings.  We all ate too much but worked it off when the 2 little ones (nephew 4, cousin 6) forgot to close the door after picking eggs. Yup, we got to chase chickens! Altho at the time we didn't think so, it did make some wonderful funny memories.

Didn't catch pictures while the chase was on but she sure has a variety of unusual but gorgeous Chickens!



Let me say among all of the things that I am truly grateful for, YOU are high on the list.

This time of year we all are doing our crafting.

My kitchen table is where I do my crafting.
Maybe someday I'll have a corner where I can leave things that are
in the process". But for now I shuttle my supplies back and forth
here and there.
I'm always in a hurry to finish a project so I can "clear the table".
Sometimes I don't think I even get to enjoy the process.
I usually throw my supplies back in their containers.
Organization is not my friend when it comes to this.
The other day after finishing my Gift Jars this is what my ribbon/trim bin looked like: What a mess!! It's pretty much been like this for awhile.



I decided it was time to got through and wrap them up.
It took about 2 hours but I did it!!


Much better ~:)
I know it doesn't seem like much, but what a difference when I'm looking for just the right trim.

Update on Cyndar

I was able to get Cyndar into our vet on Wednesday.
She was a mess....so many Raccoon bites.
She had a slightly elevated temperature.
They shaved the larger bites along her back, inner front leg and inner thigh.



After seeing how bad they were she decided that Cyndar needed drainage tubes. They put her to sleep, checked to see how deep the bites were, then opened up the larger ones to insert drains. The bites along her back and front leg were 1" deep, the one on her back leg was 2" deep! We were at the Vets for 3 hours.


I was given some antibiotics for her to take, 4 twice a day. She also is on Rymadil for pain. I put warm compresses on the bites with drains twice a day and Neosporin on the ones that don't.
She gets the drains out on Monday.
She's still sore and tender but doing better each day.

Operation Raccoon
has begun.
I ran fishing line all around the pond as best as I could.


Installed the Scarecrow Motion activated Sprinkler,


tied down the dog food lids, and removed ALL the large rocks from around the inner shelf of the pond. I am waiting for the Coyote Urine, once that arrives it goes around the pond also.
I'm trying any and all tips/tricks to send the Coons packing.
No holds barred!

Wish me luck!!
