Maybe I've thrown a little too much cracked corn on the ground. This morning, at about 6am, I looked out the window to see a skunk having breakfast under the bird feeders. I think that they may be setting up house under my shed.
That brings to mind a couple of skunk stories. One day, a couple of years ago, I looked out the window to see momma skunk followed by four baby skunks. They walked in perfect profile across the yard.
Last Summer, as I was lying out at night in a lawn chair stargazing, two skunks entered the yard and started to approach me. I was afraid to move. The skunks brushed right up against the side of my chair. I slowly tapped a key on my chair, and they gradually walked away. Have you ever had a close encounter with a skunk?
