Skunks and rain .............
We've had all sorts of animals in our yard - deer, rabbits, possum, raccoons, snakes, huge turtles, all kinds of birds, etc. Now we have a skunk family that has been traveling across our yard every evening. Mama skunk has two babies that run along behind her. They really are cute, but I've been keeping my distance. I'm sure Mama skunk would get upset if anyone came near her babies. So far, the cats have not seen them. I'm hoping Maggie May doesn't catch sight of them and decide she is going to chase them out of the yard like she chases dogs. That could be disasterous. Maybe I should stockpile tomato juice.
The last two days have been very HOT and very HUMID. Yesterday was 96 and this afternoon was 98. We spent yesterday afternoon in the pool, but today we retreated inside to the air conditioning. I think we are suppose to have one more very hot day before it cools down to the upper 80s. We had a very brief shower last night and got all of one tenth of an inch of rain. I think that evaporated into steam as soon as the rain stopped. I'm still doing my rain dance.
