I have been laughing about this since Monday night of the 17th! hehehehe MY DH went outside --at night--just before bedtime--to go "potty" of course.(because the world can be his bathroom) thing I hear is OH SH*&%^!!!!!! he had his flashlight, so I mosied over to the door and whispered to him, "Are you ok?" I hear another ((&&$%#@^**^&%) ---he is standing quite still--I assumed the worst--snake bite, bear sighting...what?? he wouldnt make another sound....he came over, opened the door and said---look outside--and he pointed --with the flashlight--at the back end of a skunk!!!!!!!!!!! He said he was standing there doing his business and the skunk waddled between his legs as if he wasnt there...I buttoned my lips real quick like and stood still as i watched it's tail waltzing away in the beam from the light! DH hurries inside, 'bout knocking me down in the process and closes the door. and looks about like death warmed over! I start to laugh--really laughing and am really amazed that he didnt get "sprayed". Apparently the skunk had meandered from under the trailer and right into John's path! LOL maybe it got wet, we will never know!!!! BUT JOHN didnt get sprayed!!! Wonders never cease! LOLOL---the camping was wonderful from that point on till last night when we were awakened by a severe thunderstorm and about an inch of rains at about 11 pm... now--flooding isnt far from my mind because this area was closed several weeks ago due to flooding...but I managed to go back to sleep when the rains let up! as for the PUPS---they loved it!!!! Missy was terrific and neither had accidents while we were gone!

I completed a cq exchange block, made 7 dishcloths/washcloths, and worked on a cross-stitch project while gone, and taught john how to play skip-bo and he whooped me playing dominoes! we walked a lot, took dogs on more walks, and relaxed, watched tv, etc,etc....It was a wonderful, cool, four days!! . Always nice to go away and nice to come back. In October, we go in search of Fall colors..*~*CAROLE*~*

OH OH The skunk got whizzed on! Hilarious. Wouldn't that have been a mess if it had been the other way around? Funny too as Gail had a tale with a skunk too this past week.

Oh, I had to read the skunk story to Paul! LOL! We've never been sprayed, but we've seen plenty of them. So far, here, only a squirrel, in the mammal category. We had all that rain yesterday!

Sounds like you had a productive and an enjoyable time.
