There were signs .........
That night when I was out photographing the moon and I saw THREE skunks wandering through the neighborhood.
That morning when the dogs next door were barking at 4:30 and the chickens were screaming like crazy. I thought to myself ..... there's a skunk in the chicken coop. I must be telepathic ... anyway ...
That big hole in the flower bed that I thought Jessie was responsible for.
Those TWO big holes by the fence next to the RV. It must be CATS!!
That BLACK CAT I saw duck behind the rose bush. We have lots of cats in our neighborhood.
Even MORE holes dug in the LAWN!!! It MUST be gophers!! How could I be so blind??
I forewarned my hairdresser gal. The good news is her salon is set up in her garage, so we jokingly opened both big doors. Sweet girl that she is, she said she did not smell anything. She even opened a bottle of perm solution and poured it on my hands which still retained the smell from washing Miss Jessie. It worked!! Maybe I should give Jessie a perm!!
I haven't had to deal with skunks since leaving the ranch. I should have known!! Unfortunately for me, Miss Jessie likes to snuggle up on the couch. I tried to dissuade her, but she was having none of it. I smelled skunk all morning long.
My tuna sandwich even TASTED of skunk. At one point I accidentally closed the door to the BATH room. I discovered my mistake this morning. OH MAN THAT'S STINKY!! Apparently it's in the bathtub now. I boiled three big pots of water, scoured the tub with Dawn and rinsed it down. I should know if that worked by tomorrow. Won't my guests be surprised!!! I'll buy some of that Miracle stuff today.
Luckily, at least SO far, the sewing room remains stink free. I was going to give this quilt away, but if the smell hangs around, I'll have to keep it. Apparently the secret is to leave all the doors and windows open, should you ever need to know.
I figured I could at LEAST have salmon skunk-free for dinner. After all, that lovely fish smell should cancel out everything. Nope ..... tasted like skunk. That smell is in my nose forever!!!
Yes ... there were signs.
My plan today is to spend all my time on my phone. Tomorrow is D-Day for my driver's license renewal. I think I've already taken 25 practice tests, and 50 or so more can't hurt. In the meantime, FELOPZD EDFCZP. Those are the IMPORTANT lines on the eye test! Guess I better warm them about my perfume, odie parfume de skunk!!
