Footprints

A few weeks ago someone left a second-floor window open overnight in the house we have been working on.  The next day we discovered some unexpected footprints in the drywall dust on the floors.


I am pretty sure that the left footprint belongs to Tim, who has been sanding a lot of drywall lately. I am also pretty sure that the right set of footprints doesn't belong to anyone on my crew!

Several of my crew members are country boys: Josh, Dave, and Matt (a new guy). Josh is the most "country" of the bunch, so I asked him whose footprints those might be. He said it was definitely a raccoon, and Dave agreed.

So, apparently a raccoon has been doing a little late night exploring inside the house, probably to scrounge any leftover food that might be lying around.

*********************************************
Here is a joke that Josh has been telling:

What is the difference between Beer Nuts and Deer Nuts?

Beer Nuts are a buck twenty-five, Deer Nuts are under a buck.

I'm glad you enjoyed Josh's joke. I got a good laugh from it myself.

I guessed it was a raccoon! Huzzah!

Good guess, Mark!

At first I thought it was more likely to be a cat, we have a lot more of those around here, but Josh and Dave were positive that it was a raccoon.

He needs steel-toed paw protectors to be on the work site!

Even if I could find him some steel-toed paw protectors, where am I going to find a hard hat that will fit a raccoon?

Glad you enjoyed the joke, Jon. :-)

I don't know animal tracks, but there are a limited number of things it could have been in this downtown neighborhood.
