A Recent Visitor
Friday morning as we were about to set out for the Sung Requiem Mass for a friend of our community, we saw this critter sitting on our porch.
He was nonplussed at the presence of humans, sat on our porch in a chair looking very comfortable and ready for a meal.
Br. Joseph said he tried to crawl up the sceen of the window on our porch, looking like he owned the place.
We went to the funeral.
When we arrived home several hours later we thought he was gone.
No such luck.
He was rolling around in the yard on his back, having a good old time.
This racoon looked like he was well fed and was maybe a pet of someone. But we were hesitant to approach him or to let our dogs out for fear he was rabid or maybe would be rather aggressive towards them (or they towards him).
He eventually left; we're not sure where he went or why he stopped by.
