If the raccoon isn't gone by then, the chimney $weep can remove it for a $mall fee.


Moral of the story? You may be able to get away without a chimney cap for many many years, but eventually the lack of a cap will be a bigger problem than if you had just put one on in the first place.
I know you were all wondering how this turned out, and were worried for me.

Well, as it turns out, there was a break long enough in the showers that the roof dried off this afternoon, and the chimney sweep was willing to climb up there at the appointed time. The raccoon was no longer in the chimney. It had been driven away by the liberal application of ammonia soaked rags by us. The chimney sweep inspected the chimney and found no bedding materials brought in by the raccoon. He capped the chimney, wrote up an estimate to have some minor mortar repair done, and charged us a measly $113 dollars for the whole deal. I feel like we won the lottery. I was thinking we would have to pay a lot more, since everything is always outrageous around here.

glatt is one happy dude.

Why didn't you fire up the fireplace and furnace? Roasted coon is tasty.

Hmmm, home pregnancy kit says Negatori! I still feel funky.

In all honesty, I wouldve accepted the congratulations but would of been shitting myself telling him and waiting for him to come back from Iraq. He will be down here on pre deployment leave in 2 weeks, then I wont see him until the end of the year.

We have had the *what if* talk and he wants more kids, but I dont think he would of wanted them under these circumstances.

I dont know whether I want him to be the father of my children just yet though

Clod - Hows the foot?? thats some nasty bruising.

Cloud - youre not married? why are you happy? I'm a bit hazy on your circumstances.

My US friend (from WI) sent his stuffed raccoon over here for a holiday. I'm thinking I need to Flat Stanley him, so will have to take a trip to Sydney to get the compulsory Sydney Opera House pic.

awful lot of animals around here: ducks, goats, toads, foxes . . . Maybe the Cellars is really a zoo in disguise!
