As I blogged yesterday I’ve been playing a fun practical joke on a distant accaintance who had some raccoons living in her attic and had them trapped and hauled away, only to be released elsewhere. I’ve assumed the identity of one of these raccoons “Chester the Mooch”, and have been writing letters to Claudette regaling her with “Chester’s” travels since being “kidnapped by her hired thugs.” I work with Claudettes daughter, so I get to hear second hand how much she enjoys these letters and trying to figure out who’s sending them to her (she’s way off on her guess…which will make it even more fun when I come clean). It’s good hearted clean fun that’s lifting her spirits. I hadn’t planned on writing more than one letter, but Claudette, her daughter and I are having so much fun with it I’ve written, and sent a few more. (read yesterdays blog if you’d like more details or to read letters 1 & 2).
The following are letters 3 & 4.
Deer Klawdet & occupant …
Eye hate this…eye lepht Denver on a kommercial flight 4 Ceadr Rapids & ended up in freakin’ Florida!! Theyv got alligatorz & crocidilez down here…EVERY-FREAKIN-WHERE!!!

(editors note: I had inserted a photo of a woman cradling a 50 pound raccoon on her lap. The raccoon is HUGE with a great big stomach…obviously domesticated) with the following caption beneath the photo.
