To add one to the pile of unfinished projects, I started another.
On top of a rock wall I made years ago
I started making some branch thingies. I started by taking apart an old stump I never got around to using
and reconstructed it on top of the rock
After a couple of layers the branches look like this
Thanks for taking a peak.

Thank you, RobMc.
I'm slowly getting there with the rootsies.

|RobMc||Your backdrop is so artistically done - I can't wait to see the tank come to life.|

Ok, makes sense.
"Weaning" is not necessarily a kick-outta-home time.
Vancouver. Man. If I had a choise, that's where I'd spend the rest of the days.

|duff||Sorry for more off topic everyone... but these little guys fascinate me to no end, and yes they are so resourceful! Yes, 4 little ones this year - only three the previous year. They seem to stick with momma for about a year around here. They are just a little bit smaller then her now. I thought they had moved on, but then saw all 5 cross the fence back to the house this last weekend! They should all be dispersed by end of April. I'd be honored as well if I were in your shoes! Oh and Vancouver! Love that town - I've got a bit of family on that side of the bay and love to visit up there, luck you to have lived there!|

Thank you, duff! I'm taking this one with sorta relaxed wrists.
A momma and four kids? Wow.
So in Texas they produce more than one litter per year? If I have been informed correctly, they wean the bebes at about 4-5 months (?), so the spring litter should be kicked out by now...
Great to hear of someone not hating the buggers. I mean, I know they do a lot of harm and mess up the hoods, but still.
One of the most adaptive mammals, after humans. Gotta respect it!
I'm kinda honored to be in a position to experience one and see the qualities leading to the adaptability, first hand.
I spent 6 months in Vancouver back in the days, and had a male raccoon living in a cedar on the backyard of the house I lived in. He was the coolest guy to talk to, while taking a bath in the hot tub at dusk.

Hi HX, so glad to see your back to building (re-building) a tank and posting! I was hoping we'd get to see more of your work. Quite Stunning! I am looking forward to seeing this one come alive.
Love your little companion! I've got a family of 5 (Momma and kids) living next door to me and every night at dusk they come alive. Crossing the fence to get to my small water feature for a drink - then off for the nights prowl. I can only imagine what it must be like to live with one!

Thanks for the kind comments, people.
How? He kind of decided to move in with me about twelve years ago.
He's actually planning on starting a tank of his own. I'm trying to encourage him.

Wow! You are so talented!
Im a bit derailed by the fact that you have racoons?! Dont mean to sidetrack your tread, but how? Lol
Cant wait to see more of the project!
