Encounters with Rantwick, episode Twenty One: Rocket Raccoon

To be honest, I don't really like the video I'm about to post. There's a kind of lameness about it that I can't quite put my finger on. Last night when I made that same observation Mrs. Rantwick said, "well, you worked on it for a couple of hours; you should just post it anyway. It's cute." Mrs. Rantwick being someone who is very seldom wrong, here we are.
I had never seen a raccoon 1) sprint or 2) on open ground in the daytime until one morning last August. Here he (or she) is:


Hey, who knows? Given my often poor understanding of what people like, this may turn out to be my most popular video ever! Which will be great! And sad.

Yer Pal,

I'm not partial to raccoons. I like squirrels a lot more...

I don't know many people who are... except me. I like 'em quite a lot. They're always up to no good.

That raccoon was doing the walk of shame after a night on the town.

Yep, blog worthy. Well, at least I think so. But considering what I put on my blog, maybe you should ask someone else.

cafiend - it did look kind of like he woke up under that tree... not that I could relate or anything.

pondero - thanks!

It was during my stay at MAC, where I saw the fattest raccoons.
Nice video, dude!
Peace :)

At least the raccoon wasn't foul-mouthed like them squirrels of yours.
