T virus apparently got him Sad

Or if this was pre-covid i would say he met someone who is busy playing with his flashlights.

Do u mean Raccoon City?

He has been gone 4 days 30 minutes.Hopefully he is ok.I.know he deals with Health issues.He started a thread about it.I know we are somewhat anonymous on here.I could never get that personal on a public forum.

Some issues are best handled and expressed in a 12 step program,counselers,Doctors and close friends.

More power to him..hope he is ok.

To admit is to acknowledge.To Accept is to take action.

In one of his last entries he wrote that for the first time COVID-19 has struck a family he knows in person. Hope he’s OK.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

They say the first 24 hours are the most important so as the Magic 8 Ball says “All signs point to Yes”

Maybe his internet provider messed up again? I recall R/C once had severe issues getting online. Anyway, I hope he‘s alright. Best wishes to him and his family.

Yep, I'm back!

My physical health and mental health are just fine.

Our internet went out at about 8pm on July 4th, and we had a technician restore our internet at about 3pm today (Pacific Standard Time.)

I'm almost caught up with BLF, and then I have a few other sites to catch up on, and then I'll be completely caught up.  :BEER:

Yeah around here I trap the dang coons —- relocate them but they keep coming back —- LOL

I caught one with a front foot missing — around 3-4 weeks later I caught him again (unless there was 2 running around missing the right front foot — needless to say the third strike he was out — off to the old man who thinks they’re a delicacy Big Smile

Welcome back Raccoon, it has been kinda dull around here without your commentaries & opinions. Wink

We were on the verge of issuing APB’s, missing persons, & Amber Alerts!! Wink Big Smile

Seriously, glad all is well with you and yours. ✅

When I was younger I ran a short trapline for extra money, back when fur sold at a premium. I met an old gentleman who loved to eat Raccoons & Beavers, he Bar-B-Qued them. Smoked some also.

So I skinned them & kept the fur, then gave the carcasses to him to do his thing. One day I took him a load of carcasses & he had just finished a bunch of Bar-B-Qued & Smoked Raccoon & Beaver. Of course I tried it… it was great too.
I left with a huge plate for later consumption… and consume it I did.

Turns out he sold it in a little B-B-Q joint he ran in his little community… he was a huge hit too.

From then on everytime I made a carcass delivery I left with a plate. Wink

Good times long past…..

In the world of Resident Evil, viruses are bad and vaccines are good.

In the real world, viruses and vaccines are different for different people.

...

If I ever disappear for more than 2 or 3 days, I'll most like either be on vacation, or our internet is down.

I've only gone on vacation twice in my life, and I think I created a thread each time to let people know what was up.

Of course, some day I'll pass away, but I have pretty good genes and I might live to be 90.

Right now I'm only 45, so I think I have a lot of time in front of me.  :THUMBS-UP:

ShyOne I used to work with a machinist who was a bear and deer hunter. Think a grouchy Grizzly Adams. He was legendary for hunting and torturing apprentices. Didn’t help that my older brother had been an apprentice before I came along and insured ‘I was in for it. Anyway Josh(Grizzly Adams) would prepare a feast every winter as hunting settled down. Deer backstrap on homemade cathead biscuits and bear stew until you could not eat another bite. Wonderful memories and I learned so many things. I hope these things do not die out

RC, I don’t think you understand what was about to happen. You were going to have a bunch of crazy flashlight dudes come looking for you armed with MF05’s and GT94’s.

I haven’t seen any local raccoons since 2 of them were bitch-slapping each other over who gets to eat the leftover catfood I put out for the cats.

My daughter encountered raccoon pups for the first time the other night, 3 of them! She thought they would be fun to pet until 2 of the stood side by side and growled at her! One hid between a sliding screen door and the glass walk in door, tail hanging out and standing up. She about laughed herself silly because you could almost see the whole thing… She did pet it’s tail!

Raccoons here just tend to waddle off if disturbed.

I was able to pet a few opossums when I had ‘em cornered. And yeah, they stiffened up like dead. LOL Soft, though.

One of the Angry Squirrels here was too busy filling his face on peanuts I was giving him, that I was able to keep foofing his tail over and over. On video, too. I’d foof him, he’d turn and growl at me, try biting me, then immediately turn away and keep eating. Foof his tail again, and again, turn/growl/bite. Over and over.

And a cow-orker thought I was nuts…

Raccoons are getting more common in The Netherlands during the last 10 years. Neighboring Germany has a population of 1.5 million, the population started in the thirties when north-american raccoons were released in nazi-Germany for hunting. But in the Netherlands they are sofar limited to less than hundred, and there is a practice of capturing as many as possible because it is not a native species.
