Many of you have asked about little Stump, the baby raccoon we spotted with a stump. We have not seen him in some time. If he pops in one of these days we'll let you know. We did see a mama and four very little babies pass through. They sure are cute to watch, and they're very respectful of our property. Maybe we're just lucky or maybe it is Papa's old socks they love to play with.
