We had our own Lucy here last night--granddaughter Brooke and her husband Nick came for supper. Brooke's mother called her Lucy when she was little after the Peanuts character because she was so bossy. She's still a pretty independent young woman and it was great to see her. She and Nick are expecting our first great-grandchild in a few weeks.
But, as we know, no chocolate factory is without its bungled assembly line and this park is being terrorized by a gang of thugs. One of them watched us eat from the crotch of a tree, about ten feet from our table. They have no fear and delight at frightening people walking along the road in the dark. They check out every campsite for stuff to steal. They hide under campers and can open any container left out. They have no respect for authority or park rules.
At first we thought there was only one raccoon but it soon became evident that he was not alone as we spotted his partners in crime darting around from site to site, and I'm sure I heard nefarious giggles from a couple of them.
It's quiet this morning but they'll be back when the sun goes down. Meanwhile, the Glampers are expecting a visit this morning from Outdoor Iowa magazine, and there is a Junk Jaunt going on around Boone where several members will be on the search for vintage accessories to add to their campers. The continuing scavenger hunt and a demonstration of Dutch oven cooking will add to the fun. I bet the raccoons will be interested in that demonstration too.
