Encounters with Rantwick, episode Twenty One: Rocket Raccoon

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

pondero - thanks!

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

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