On Friday, Monday and again today, work would keep me out of the house until 4:30 pm. Business hours at the Wildlife Rescue locally end at 4. They're available on a 24 hour basis for rescues, but information is another thing. Today is my long travel day and as I was driving I kept seeing dead skunks in the roadway. Each time I had to swerve to avoid another one, I kept thinking that Mama Skunk didn't make it.
I pulled into the driveway of my 2pm case with 10 minutes to spare and used my cell phone to call the Wildlife office. It was then that I found out Mama Skunk was found dead in her cage last Friday morning. Given her condition when recovered from my deck, it wasn't an unexpected death. Had she not been found dead, she most likely would have died during surgery. Of course, the babies didn't make it either. When they found her she'd been dead too long to try a C section to save them.
I was itching to do this post when I first came home and found that I was locked out of my blog. Apparently another bug was stopping around 10,000 of us from logging in. It also was affecting comments as well so those like Sarge should be Ok now.
It was kind of a funny thing as yesterday I discovered that Blogger did give me back my missing post plus the comments it took. And then today, the fun started up again.
I don't know if I've become jaded, or possibly I have different priorities, but the log in problem didn't concern me once I figured out it was a Blogger issue and not mine. I can remember the time when I would have nearly had an anxiety attack over a failure to get to blogging when I had something I wanted to say. Then again, it could be that I have nothing really important to say and I can say nothing anytime.
