you may be thinking to yourself.. aww. its just soo cute! right? Wrong!!! This little guy has been hanging around our street for a few days now. It is NOT scared of dogs or humans! Even worse. a few nights ago my bestie neighbor called to tell me there was a coon. and that she chucked legos at him from the back porch to scare it and it simply picked them up and played with them.
later that night I completely forgot about it and let the dog out to go potty. We have a lab/pit mix. He is the best dog ever! After I let him out he made an appearance... OH SH#@!!! My awesome dog is out with the "critter" and who knows if its aggressive or even worse.. has rabies! He clearly was not scared of me. he walked up on to the porch and picked up bubas' toy, which of all things, is stuffed raccoon...Go figure. Once buba locked on him I panicked! I was yelling "COON COON" to my husband and yelling at buba to stay and get inside! Lucky for me, my dog listened and came in without lunging at it. they were toe to toe! So now its midnight, i am screaming at the dog, screaming at my husband to get the bb gun and the dog is going nuts inside cause he wants a piece of it!
My husband shot at it and could not tell if he got him or not, but he stayed away (for all we know..). Well today, my neighbor across the street called and said, "that coon was in my house!" Her cousins are in the process of moving in for the summer while they are away. they were bringing stuff in the house and that coon followed them right in! they had to trap it in a laundry basket and get it out! Crazy! Now its just hanging around. it has GOT to go!!!!
On an unrelated note... i just finished a chair and ottoman for on of my designer clients' client... you follow? She picked a grey corduroy to give it a more modern look from the original chair. We kept a skirt on it just to cover the more traditional feet. this fabric was awesome but a little tricky to work with. It had a dacron backing to it so it was thick! but al in all it turned out great!
I also made some pillows too!
Well...I am headed out to Grand Junction, CO this morning for a horse show this weekend! I am really excited! I hope the weather stays nice. Every time we have visited this "lovely" place for a show it has either been a raining muddy windy mess or we have a demolition derby and motocross going on. Not a good combo with horses... When I get home I wont have a chance to breath! I have 2 chairs and a couch to tackle...So i am going to enjoy this weekend so I can take on next week.
