    Sometimes my life is like something from a Three Stooges short...

    I just got in a few minutes ago from doing some minor work on the car out in the driveway. It's after dark, but I was using a flashlight.

    Our neighborhood is rather dark, with the nearest streetlight at the end of the block. We also have a bit of a problem with stray cats coming around and making our four Greyhounds nuts. So, when I see a cat around the house, I do my damnedest to scare it off.

    So here I am, leaning over the driver's side fender with a soldering iron and a flashlight. Out of the corner of my eye, I notice a cat sniffing around the front part of the open garage. I quietly put down the soldering iron and flash, raise my arms up high, start moving to rush around the front of the car, and have my mouth open to shout...when...wait...

    Cats don't have pointy noses and a white stripe down their back, do they?!?


    Luckily, the *skunk* didn't unload on me, because I was only a few feet away. He was last seen waddling into the neighbors bushes.

    Damn, that was *too close* for comfort...

    You never watched Pepe Le Peu, did you? Cats can have stripes on their backs! Are you sure it wasn't just paint? :p

    Do you live in chicago or "chicagoland" I have never seen one driveway in Chicago.
  8. Skunks are sneaky little buggers.

    A few weeks back, I encountered one during my softball game. There I am out playing left field, and on to the field twenty five feet or so behind me, here comes a skunk. I'm a little concerned about where to find twenty cans of tomato juice at 11:00 PM, so I yell into the ump; "hey, blue, there's a skunk on the field". He comes back with "he smells better than you do", and the game went on. Skunk finally wanders off after a few minutes or so. At least our opponents weren't hitting the ball that night.
  9. Freak?? nah just an idiot. :p

  13. A skunk in your driveway? Well that would never happen in my municipality, no-sir-e-Bob! :D

    So it's skunks for you, and racoons for me. In the last few years racoon sightings have gone from very rare to pretty common here in Queens, why? I do not know. Sounds like you were pretty lucky, Heavy D.
