Thanks, Maggie. I did as you suggested and ordered the 12" x 5" camp oven and case. Looking forward to baking bread with you.

Sad about the raccoon, but it sounds as is it might have been rabid.

Doug will be with you until you leave this life, just as my dad stayed for my mom. To me, that is very reassuring.

It's a very comforting thought, that Doug is here with me.

I've been trying to be a big girl, and let go, but if he wants to hang around I am certainly not going to quarrel with it.

I'm going to ask Gary to re-post on the rally thread the DO information I had put together for last winter. This bread gets started the day before.

Looking forward to meeting you, Pagey.


Maggie

Quite the contrary. Maggie always seems so even-keeled and pleasant!

Forgive me Maggie, I just couldn't help myself! Hopefully worth a smile!

I don't believe it was rabies, as there were none of those classic symptoms. I saw Old Yeller many times. Clearly something wrong, tho.

What was most striking was that he was completely unafraid of people.

Thanks, I do try. It's the only way.

Falling into deep depression is something I try to avoid.

Funny, you.

And, anyone who knows me well knows I can and do have a temper, just try to keep it at bay these days.

In retirement, there is much less to aggravate one.

A friend to many of us who have enjoyed her here, TinCrumpet, has sent me this post and photo and asked that I place it here for her.

"Thanks for the emails over the months …
I am extremely sorry I have scantily replied to just a few …. I’m not up to emails and writing on a public forums at the moment..Suffice to say...
Hans and I are plodding along .. and will be returning to the USA next April when he finally retires..
He is worn out so not a minute too soon

We have a master plan of sorts visiting various …our Airstream friends may post the odd ditty of our travels next year .. we shall see what unfolds ..
…A chap we have know for some 30 years..Non Air Streamer ..is more than keen we stay with him at some point …he’s in Washington DC ..
Retired B52 Pilot now working for the Admiral of the CoastGuard ..Aviation sort..his presence is Heaven to Hans Snr..
we are fond of him and at ease in each others company so that could happen …we have invites from others which we have gratefully accepted

Pitch dark here in the East of England…close to the Airstrip and the rains are bucketing down ..
were contented cozy and warm in our Airstream ..
What more could we possibly want.. we have each other .. our loving son ....
and a handful of English..American and German friends ..

For now…
we wish you good health and travels From England …and as Maggie once said ...
“Life is good” …

Maggie
The warnings they health authorities have been posting around here list those very symptoms as a sign of rabies in raccoons and other nocturnal wild animals.

On another, much happier subjectů

Please tell TinCrumpet that we are all glad to hear from her and relieved that they are OK. I, for one, had really gotten hooked on her posts and her beautiful pictures of England.

That is scary. The raccoon was right next to the Interstate.

Glad the rangers got it. Too bad for the raccoon, but good for people and their pets who might be exposed. Please be sure you and Lilly are OK. IIRC rabies travels via the saliva of the infected animal, so getting bitten is the usual means of infection.

Our daughter had to take rabies vaccine years ago when she worked at a vet's office. They had a dog die of an "undiagnosed central nervous system disorder" and everyone who'd been near the animal took the shots as a precaution. When the state lab came back with the results of their tests, it wasn't rabies after all.

Incidentally, the shots have been much improved and are not as painful as the old timers say they were 'way back when. By the time Kim and her co-workers finished the series of shots, they were skipping the doctor's office visits and giving each other the shots. 25 years later, Kim's no worse for the wear.

It does sound like distemper that the raccoons get. Several years ago, I was driving down our driveway, and a smallish raccoon was sitting at the base, in the center, just breathing, but not trying to get out of my way at all. It was breathing so hard I could see its body moving with each breath. I called our animal control, but they said it is very common here and that they don't come out for it. Also said the raccoon would eventually die from it. This is, of course, Ohio. I was and still am concerned for other animals and humans who may get too close to them.
