I Tree'd a Raccoon!

Alice wanted to go home after a visit to Sta. Rita last night. I smelled and heard something wild in the backyard. Had to drag, DRAG! her into the pitch black backyard. Pulled her over the patio, around the patio corner post, and then to the neighbor's yard. She finally heard the creature, too, in the box hedges. Mad dash over there in time for both of us to see somthing pretty big scrambling up the willow tree. Alice saw it had a big hunched back. A nearly full-grown raccoon. I was not scared at all. The nerve of those sewer-living wild things coming into the yard full of flowers and tomato plants. Humph! Dog on Duty. Hooray for me! The brave coon hound, Alice said.
