charmer shoo

Last fall (through spring) we had to do some significant work in our backyard, including re-pouring a 20x20’ patio… Whatever, huh? A couple of weeks ago, we repainted the bedroom of one of my daughters. Again, whatever. BUT, in cleaning up, I took the (essentially) empty paint can, and lid, and put them in the back yard (since you can’t put it in the trash until they are 100% dried). SOOOOO…. We woke up the next morning to yellow tracks across the (practically) new patio. Some critter had checked out the can, and stepped on the lid. Then walked across the patio. GRRRRRRR. NOW THEN: question for the day: Possum? Or Raccoon? Or something else? This print is probably a bit bigger than life size, depending on your screen.

i liked them all, but the footprint was the most interesting to me. it makes you stop and imagine all sorts of things.

Thanks Sherry! Of course, I'm imagining all the evil things my wife will do to me if I get all these footprints off the new patio!! I may make a case to leave this one, it's the clearest, and is off at the edge. I kinda like it.

twice in my life i have seen a cat run through a paint pan and down the stairs and up the stairs and leave little paw prints all over a house! once, years ago at my father's with dark blue paint and polished hardwood floors. that was a mess, but funny and just a few months ago here with bob and white paint which is still smeared onto the steps leading down to the gameroom. that, still strikes me as funny. if one of his little paw prints had been as clear as your print on the cement, i'd have left it as is and perhapd polyurathaned over it! : )
