I'm not totally neurotic

I am not obsessed with skunks. I'm not. I promise.

It's just that it's spring time. I'm outside more. The skunks are out more. We're sure to interact at some point.

Tonight, turning off the road and into our driveway, we thought we saw a skunk. It reminded me of the pictures my neighbor took last summer. One Sunday morning, this is what they saw in their front yard.

Have you ever heard to rinse your yogurt cups so that creatures won't be attracted to the yogurt cup and get their heads stuck? I had heard that, but come on. Really.

Oh, yeah. Really. He really did get his head stuck. He really did run laps around their front lawn ... ready to spray anything that came close to him.

Anything did come close.



They came too close, as you can tell from the black dog in the background. The corgi is about to get a full-face shot in this picture.

Just so you know? There really are skunks out there.

They really do like yogurt.

You really should rinse the cup out.

Yes, rinse out the yogurt cups and crush them before putting them in the recycle bin.

These pictures were a hoot!
