This is the view from son #2's window, showing our waterfall, stream and pond.

You can see the wire mesh above the pond - that's there to protect the goldfish from an Egret that loves to come by and fish every now and then.

The last few days, Debra has found the mesh under water in the morning, and last night we found out why. Son #2 and I were watching "Fargo," and all of a sudden he jumped up and grabbed our big flashlight.

What did he see on the lawn, making his/her way towards the pond?

A raccoon.

And it's not as if we live in the wilderness, folks. Classic suburbia, although we are fairly close to some wide open areas.

Should make things interesting.
