Tried to write a murder mystery once. I couldn’t remember if Miss Plumb killed the butler in the pantry who had killed Mr. Hunter in the aquarium room who was the part-time butler. It was all perfectly clear to me.
Late afternoon last Saturday, the wife and I had just turned into our nice, smooth road leading to the house (smooth if you drive a M1 Tank). A wild critter suddenly ran out on the road and then took off running through the high grass and wash. It was a COATIMUNDI. I tried to find this mysterious creature on the Internet but I was misspelling the critter’s name. I was looking under wild cats of the desert.
Jean told me it is related to a racoon. Ha, I say! And then I muttered the two words that no man is ever suppose to let leave his lips when talking to their wife….”Your Wrong”!!
Of course, the critter is a type of racoon that immigrated from South America and are a fairly rare sight in our mountains (Dragoon Mountains). I felt that little pang….that sharp little nerve ending in the brain. I WAS WRONG!!! How could this be?? Mighty Casey has struck out—AGAIN!!

Well, I did discover something at that web page that was very useful and informative. There is a photography section discussing digital cameras, picture taking do’s and don’ts and etc. So at least it wasn’t a complete washout.
Stuck in the corner for the next week…..That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.
