in a trap that had been there for quite a long time. Obviously the raccoons are old enough to find food on their own because it's been over a week since we caught the mother. But he is clearly a baby and I'm sure will need some kind of special care at a rehab place. Of course, there are probably more babies around so the trapping will continue..
In other news, I called a plumbing service because our garbage disposal died yesterday. It just stopped working and I pushed the "reset" button a few times--but nothing.
So the plumber shows up this morning and is in the house for less than a minute (I think he pressed the reset button too) and suddenly the thing is working again. Then he said "I have to charge you a $79 diagnostic fee." and I was like, "Well, what can you do? At least it's working." Then he said "Unless you just want to give me a couple bucks and I'll write "no charge" on the ticket." I said "Done!" and gave him twenty bucks.
I love corrupt plumbers!!
