Racoon is here
First of all we have a racoon on our farm. We don't know where he came from, but he shows up sometimes at night. Kristina believes in going green(aka. feeding every stray racoon that comes to eat the dog food.) This causes humor in our house. On monday night the racoon was eating the dog food when mom saw him. She immediately let Joy out to chase him and then realized that the racoon was headed for the chicken coup. The chickens were of course out of their pen at that moment. And we all know what racoons do to chickens. Yea. A call to arms erupted, GET THE CHICKENS BACK IN THEIR PEN BEFORE THE RACOONS EAT THEM! JE and Dad immediately headed into the dark night to rescue the chickens, very heroically. I stayed nice and warm in my bed. After the chickens were all put away and counted we all had a very uneventful night.
