Close Encounters of the Skunk Kind & Welcome Baby Card

So last Friday on October 30th, Monty and I had one of our Close Encounters of the Skunk kind! Almost ran into a skunk in the morning at 6:50 am. Even though it was that late in the morning, it was dark and cloudy. I wisely didn't go to the patch of grass near the Ace hardware store because I didn't want to run into any "critters". Also, I had my flashlight with me, and scanned the row of bushes for critters. The leaves are mostly gone now, so it's easy to spot anything living there. So, we stayed in the grass near the mailboxes. He did his business, and then something caught his attention behind the row of bushes. He was watching, and his tale was upright and he was swinging it alertly back and forth. I strained my eyes, and finally saw a dark body low to the ground waddling back and forth. Then I noticed that the dark body had two white stripes! Crap…time to move on. Thankfully he hadn't figured out what it was nor barked, so we left in a hurry across the front of the townhouse building, through the street and directly into my house. That was close enough for that day! I'll tell you about our other encounter tomorrow.  Sorry, no pictures of the skunk or Monty during that time. ;-)

So, my friends in MN just had their baby. She is so cute! I bought a bunch of cute pink items at the local Target to send to them. It's hard to leave that pink isle at the store! I also made them a card, and I really like how the layout came out if I do say so myself.
