There was quite the activity around 1AM last night on our block. Some crazy neighbor lady was running around in her back yard, in her underwear, waving a broom and yelling at raccoons.
Oh, wait, that was me.
The little raccoon rascals were trying to catch the fish in our main pond. They barely looked up as I ran out. I finally shooed them away but they are persistent critters and returned almost immediately.
I finally gave up and as they came onto the back porch and started messing around in that pond (don't know why ------ there's nothing in it for them to eat), I decided to take their photographs instead of continuing to make a fool of myself.
I'm sure they'll be back tonight, trying to dine on our koi and goldfish. Oh well. Hope the fish are smart enough to figure out that they could be someone's dinner and stay at the bottom of the pond.
