Yesterday I spent some time in Collinsville after church and as I walked into the garage I was shocked to see most of the old baseboards and other long pieces of lumber which we had stored in the rafters, all piled up on the floor. And, half the items we had on the shelf along one wall had either fallen onto the floor or were tipped over.
All this meant to me was: "We've got more raccoons." A squirrel could not have done all this. Then, standing on the deck looking at the backyard I suddenly noticed the biggest, fattest, furriest groundhog I've ever seen sitting in the back lilly leaves. He just sat there looking around and then waddled slowly into what must be a big hole in the ground.
Every October we go through this! I guess we have to call Critter Control again. I'd not worry about the groundhog, but raccoons have got to go. They are destructive and will maul a dog if given half a chance.
