Visitors in the night

Yesterday, when Cathy and I were finished eating our subs, we wrapped up the last half and put them in the cooler with the ice and the frozen, alcoholic Jell-o. We have a small patio that overlooks this:

I heard a cow moo'ing this morning while I was taking this.

Anyway, as I put the cooler outside with the 2-liters and cans of pop to keep them cold, I asked Cathy if she thought we would need to worry about anything disturbing our goodies. Cathy said - Nah! They wouldn't do that.

Yeah, right!

This morning, I went out to get a pop and got a shock! The coolers were over turned and the water had drained out of them and Cathy's 12 pack looked like something had tried to have a drink.

Now, I have to clean up my cooler because there are animal germs and mud and dirt all over it and Cathy has to clean the slobber off her cans of pop.

We have those kind of visitors in the night too. My parents have to be extremely careful because they even come up on the deck to steal the dry corn they have for the stove.

LOL! Something was thirsty! They were probably ticked that they missed out on the Jello!

I wouldn't be cleaning off can's I'd be tossing them. Who knows what's in that slobber.

Smirk; now imagine if they got into the Jello, you'd have drunk raccoons. Years ago...gosh I was probably 19? A guy I was dating lived on a lake we were all there for a birthday party. They made a big vat of wop with tons of fruit. At the end of the night we just left it out there becuase it would just get tossed the next day. The racoons got into it. They LOVED it. The next morning there were these little red racoon footprints (from the fruit punch) all over the patio, discarded fruit rinds...and on the edge of the property, passed out racoons. Yeah...we hung out inside until they slept it off and took off.
