Some fun

I was out beside the front door watching the sky. One of the neighborhood skunks came to the head of the sidewalk to the house I live at, to go through the yard, but I’m sitting on the path. So when she looks at me I ask if she can stay over there and maybe eat some grubs while I finish my pipe. She does, including eating the grubs, and when I go back in the house she wanders on through, down the path I had blocked.
She and her two yuewts are around often as well as some raccoon, and cougar.
Our first encounters, there was trepidation and some posturing, now we give space to each other and acknowledge each others presence.
It’s nice to look a skunk in the eye, the other end, it’s scary for some reason.
