Can’t Take My Eyes Off These Blogs #6

Didn’t I just do a roundup? Another week has flown by. We had a first this week. My daughter had her first break away run during a soccer game. She has never been very agressive toward getting the ball. Usually she’s doing somersaults or picking grass while the action is going on, but she somehow got the ball and kicked it three times in a row! It was toward the wrong goal, but you can’t ask for miracles.

We’ve had some skunk troubles lately. If you’ve never had the pleasure of having a pet sprayed by Pepe Le Pew, it is an experience. I reported last week that I was about to have a ripe tomato on my plant. The next day something ate it, probably that same skunk. The darn thing got my dog and my tomato in the same week! If debt had a stinky skunk smell, no one would ever have a problem.

  1. Oddly enough we just got in from a walk with the pooch and there was a skunk hiding in front of a car. Mrs.CBB nearly bowled me over when I mentioned it.. she’s like get out of the way. We don’t have skunks in the UK so they are all new to me. Quite entertaining if you ask me but we have seen a few in our area since we live by the conservation and open fields. The rabbits are insane in our area. I’ll take the skunk spray because at least I know I can get rid of it in a reasonable amount of time for a reasonable amount of cash. Is that bad lol.. Cheers Mr.CBB

    • Yes, it is, but it does go away sooner than debt. I have a really funny skunk story from a few years back that I need to see if I can work into a post at some point.

  2. I always notice the smell of skunks at the park where I ride my bicycle. I guess that is the price of living in the city. It is the only open green space in the area. Thanks for including me, I am in good company.

  3. Thanks for mentioning my post!

  4. I feel sorry for your dog! I can’t imagine dealing with a skunk. I am shaking just thinking about it.

    Thanks very much for the include today!

  5. I’ve never been sprayed by a skunk but I can only imagine that it’s absolutely terrible. I’d still have to say being sprayed by a skunk as you can eliminate the odor faster than you can get out of debt. What are we talking?…maybe 2-3 days to get rid of the skunk odor and years to get out of CC debt?
