You’re always blathering on about your backyard and about all the raccoons, opossums, skunks, hawks, owls, lizards, and who-knows-what-else you claim you’ve seen there. Just what, may I ask, does your backyard look like, anyway??? I’m having trouble believing you actually have all these animals visiting your yard.

Does the above photo answer your question? Last week my wife got lost taking out the garbage. I’m putting together an expedition to go look for her, even as we speak. /Gary
I am, of course, just kidding. I took the photograph in 2004 when my wife and I were in Panama, paddling a canoe up a river into the rain forest jungle.
However, I do get regular visits to my yard by the animals you mention, plus uncounted songbirds, snakes, spiders, and fascinating insects … as do most people who live in urban and suburban areas. You’d be amazed at what goes on outside around your house at night.
That’s what my columns are all about. /Gary
