raccoon

While we were away my sister-in-law had a very unwelcome visitor in our basement. For several days he reeked havoc and several people were called for assistance {sister, neighbor, police, college nephew, brother-in-law with a small trap, W-o-W friend with a bigger trap}.

In the end he left on his own but not before destroying our little pantry at the top of the basement steps. I wish I had a photo of that as you wouldn't believe the mess he made tearing everything off of every shelf.

It gave Jim the motivation to clean and paint and now it looks great!

We have lived in this house for 30 years and never painted those shelves. It was time . . .

And I am sure he had a wonderful time in there thinking "jackpot"! Glad he left on his own. Your hubby did a wonderful job with clean~up and repair!!! Have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

That coon must of been determined to get some good food. He must have read some of your blog posts.
He's like me and likes the way you cook and knew where you kept the good stuff.
