    [Not ... one ... single ... word. I know what some of you are thinking.] :cuckoo: :eusa_naughty:


    Anyway, back to the subject. Since moving to Tennessee I've had this wonderful experience of seeing all kinds of animals I've never seen before and birds that I haven't seen since I was a small child.

    So, I was standing at my deck door drinking coffee this morning when this "thing" came across the playground grass headed for my building. I said, "What the hell??!!" I can't figure out what it was. Not a groundhog because I have lots of them outside my bedroom window. Judging from internet pictures, not a skunk, not a porcupine, not a raccoon, not a 'possum, not a badger, not an otter, certainly not a beaver.

    So, it was black with long looking hair, apparently had inch-long legs, with white markings around his eyes (sort of like raccoon eyes) but nowhere else. It was sort of spread out ... like maybe a big humpbacked frisbee and was just slowly gliding along. It crossed the drive and headed to the shrubbery in front of my building. Of course, I had no intention of going downstairs and introducing myself ...

    Can anybody tell me what the hell this thing might have been? Wondering is making me nuts.

    Thankew. :D

    Chupacabra.
    Next you'll see a sasquatch. They often travel together. You may spot some blue orbs too.

    A Democrat seeking a hiding place???

    Could be a Russian wild boar or wild hog. Depends how long the hair was and did it have a snout.

    if it did, it's a common north american weasel, or conhog, as it's sometimes called.
