Caught Another Coon

After a series of empty days, this morning I had another coon in the new live double ended trap.  We'd left one end down, one up, as Black Stripe's four kittens had figured out how to double time the double doored trap.  I kept minescule amounts of cat food in plastic trays, one on each side of the trip panel.  Two would eat out of one end, two out of the other, then leave the way they'd entered.

The coon got greedy - BOTH plastic containers were outside the trap, but the coon was in.  Not quite sure how he/she managed that feat.

On Wandering -- Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose

[Y]ou were too alert to the figurative possibilities of words not to see the phrase [angle if repose] as descriptive of human as welll as detrial rest.  As you said, it was too good for mere dirt; you tried to apply it to your own wandering and uneasy life... I wonder if you ever reached it.
