True Story Tuesday

When we lived in Arkansas we lived in a small house that backed up to a creek.  Silly me, never thought about critters.  Then again, I had never seen critters before.  Yes, we lived in the city.  I also thought there would be no critters in the city.  WRONG!!

It turns out we had possums, raccoons and skunks.  Thank God, I never actually saw a skunk.  We would often hear feet on the roof, to this day I have no clue what got up there nor do I wish to know.  One night, Hubby decided to grill. He didn’t put the grill away once he was finished, and it got dark.  I went to the glass door, and I thought I saw a big cat staring at me. It had climbed up the grill.

I then realized, I was staring into the eyes of a big raccoon!  I screamed and starting moving quickly backwards.  I must have scared him as well since he started running.  That was the first raccoon I had ever seen.  For the whole time, we lived there we also shared the yard with critters.  Hey, they where there first!

  1. That would scare the everloving bejeebies out of me! EEEK!

    And maybe I should just be thankful that I can’t hear – hearing them on the roof would prompt me to ask Mr. Daddy to get his hunting rifle out!

    We just had an entire conversation with a very nice couple on a boat to Victoria about how aggressive raccoons can be – they are fearsome critters!

    Thank goodness you were okay!

    Thanks for linking up! 🙂

  2. Ack! I would’ve had a heart attack!!

    I walked out into our garage a few weeks ago and there was a possum. YUCK!
