Who's Been S*itting in MY Chair?

Sometimes you have to go looking for nature. Sometimes it comes looking for you.

I stepped out on the front porch this morning to do my weekly thing for Nature Notes and discovered my deck chair had been the victim of a drive-by sh*tting. I spared you the large-size photo with the graphic details.

The birdbath next to the railing had been knocked over, too, so I'd bet dollars to donuts that DNA evidence would point to the South Swamp Raccoon Gang.

My younger son thought this was hilarious. This afternoon I'm making him scrub up the mess. We'll see how funny it is then.

(Yes, the chair is tied to the railing. Otherwise, it catches the wind and goes juddering down the whole length of the porch like a thing possessed.)

I'm sorry, I'm laughing at this too, mostly from your term drive by sh*tting. LOL!

Made me laugh, but then I didn't have to clean it up!

Last night my bird feeders were trashed and there was poop all over the steps..Tonight I watched and sure enough a large raccoon..a very angry raccoon because I only left safflower seeds out....So we seem to be having the same kind of fun...

I'm afraid I'm laughing too but it's because of your prose and how well you described the event. Glad I'm not around to clean it up, ha.

Well, I have to admit that I had to laugh a little too, between indignant harumphs.

Michelle, what are you going to do about the bird feeders now?
