Shavua tov everyone....
I did not cover the barbecue this evening. Why? It was not for lack of intention. I even went out into the backyard to do it. This is the third time I have had to deal with this.
We have a skunk that comes to our backyard to dine.
I saw him a couple of weeks ago up front, right where I was about to take the garbage. He stared at me, tail straight up. Luckily, the business end of the skunk was pointed in the opposite direction.
A few days after that, I went out to the backyard to cover the barbecue. Our skunk was there, again.
And it happened this evening. This time, I got closer before I realized that he was there. And the tail was pointed straight up. And the business end was pointed towards me. For a 47-year old, I move pretty quickly.
I did not cover the barbecue. The skunk can visit us whenever he wants.
Have a good evening everyone.
