Default Just When Fall Gets Here

It isn't blazing hot any more. I can open the windows and enjoy a lower electric bill. Then.....tonight a skunk "let go" somewhere near my house. P U !!! Well, at least it wasn't TOO close. Now where is my favorite perfume?

I am sorry but that made me laugh so hard! I feel for you and hope the aroma is gone soon. Thanks for laugh.

Wait until they crawl under your house and let go! Last January I got sprayed about 5 times in a 7 day period. Ugh! I even missed work because my clothes smelled. After I got them smelling better, I stored them outside in my car and got a fresh set every morning and there was still the faint aroma.

I guess I have been lucky so far. I have been here 7 years and this is the first one.

Oh, to live in a rural enough area to have such problems! I live in a city and I am definitely a country girl at heart. Miss the changing of the leaves, picking apples, the critters and the wide open spaces.

Thank God for A/C. DH saw a couple going down the street both in opposite direction. They got into it with something other critters, dogs, cats who knows but heard howling and smell is still lingering in neighborhood. Possibly couple strays got hit. checked yard this morning before letting dogs out.

You are all going to think I'm totally insane, but I sort of LIKE the smell of skunk. Not if it's so close and/or fresh that it has that sharp edge that makes your eyes water, but the old or distant skunk smell...I actually like it.

It makes me think of puppy breath, and dark coffee. I will take skunk smell over freshly-fertilized-field smell any day!! Or even worse, the "fragrance" that comes from the local dairy cows.

I live in a suburb that's right on the edge of where town ends and the country begins, so I get to smell both on a regular basis. When the wind changes and starts blowing towards my house from the dairy, you would be amazed at how quick DH & I can get all the windows in the house closed!
