    Night before last something (?) dumped over all the birdseed sitting on top the wire for the tunnel connecting the east coop to the run.
    Last night something (?) came up on the upper deck and ate Anne's (fiddler on BYC) butterfly food mix of rotten, smashed bananas, MY beer, organge slices for butterflies that like dung and rotten food.
    I'm on my way to TSC to buy a coon trap, but not because one evidently took my beer.

    TSC had them on sale.
    I got two, a coon trap and a chipmund trap, a $70 value pack, for $32.95.

    They scare me; they always have bees guarding them; otherwise, I'd steal my beer back when Anne's not looking.
