Good morning to you!

For most of the summer, I've been variously annoyed and amused by the crows and other birds using the front goat water tubs for bird baths and water fountains. I assume that the multiple rabbits I see in the grass are also coming by for a drink now and then.

This morning I discovered that this convenient water source I am supplying is also serving as a watering hole for a skunk. Good morning to you! I do hope that you are accustomed enough to my scent and presence to allow both of us to go along on our merry ways without trading demonstrations of poor faith...

ETA: I talked to Mom at lunch today. She mentioned that it is about time for juvenile skunks to be leaving home. She also talked about how good skunks were at digging up big fat yummy grubs. That got me to thinking... On Saturday morning I pulled a bunch of huge grubs out of the mud underneath the front pasture goat water bowls (because it had rained so hard they had surfaced in the mud) and put the grubs out on a rock for the birds to eat. I guess I ended up chumming for skunks instead.
