Dec 21. Grandkids with me today (Jacob and Rachel) and I am hoping that Mom raccoon will exit on cue (breakfast appearing). She did - and here are the results. After our time with the raccoon family, it was time to visit Thann Sambath, Annie, Sandy and Ceta (? maybe spelled wrong) and Hole in One Donuts - Jacob wanted an apple fritter, Rachel wanted two crinkle donuts and I wanted a dozen glazed for Jack and Lisa's family

After a while - the kids went to sleep - Here is an inside view


Jack brought a Virb thing (from Garmin) that has a super camera and gps. He mounted it on the end of a 16' extension tube (for painting) and one of my CREE flashlights. The light was too bright - so tomorrow we'll replace with a less bright flashlight. Here we are counting how many baby raccoons live in their home

Mom walking home after breakfast. She takes a circuitous route home - crossing the path, up a tree - jumps to another tree and finally crosses back over the path to her nesting tree
