Raccoon Cam

Since the stair guy’s piled up his tools and stuff in such a way as to block the cam’s view of the patio table (and thus any late-night Bink sightings, yesterday I oriented  it west for a shot down the south side of the house. Not because anything special goes on, but because at least the view isn’t blocked.

Turns out while I was out doing the LA Marathon Bike Tour, it indeed did capture a still of something special this morning in the form of a raccoon about to scale the fence either to get into the trees or on our roof.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
