So, is this skunk season, or what?
Today we smelled a slight skunk smell that got stronger and stronger as the moments went by. Since skunks are nocturnal, I wanted WonderBoyII to go out and check things out, but carefully, and with a weapon (a long stick, as it happens) in case it turned out to have rabies. He and Princess PondScum followed the odor and found it down the hill where it had succumbed, probably after being hit by a car. So what happened to the poor deceased and very smelly skunk? Princess PS brought it up to the driveway on a stick and the prevailing wind brought the smell straight into the house. Freshly dead, still wiggly and smelling like it had just sprayed, which it had.
We started out making a big peach cobbler and putting nectarines in the freezer and ended up dealing with skunk. The fun just never ends around here!
