Rocky Raccoon's first thought when he found the bags left on the driveway was "Serendipity".

Then he discovered there was no food in them.

Poor Rocky. He can't eat the work tools can he! Nice take on the prompt picture and word.

Daryl Edelstein said...

Ah, some have all the luck, and some, none. Nice one.

Linda said...

Well heck, that was just downright rude of whoever left the bags there to have not included some snackage for Rocky!

Elaine said...

Poor Rocky. :(

Pat said...

Aww, poor Rocky. But beggars can't be choosers. I suppose Rocky doesn't consider himself a beggar, but rather a connoisseur. At least he didn't shred the garbage bags. There is that.

My dad had a raccoon for a pet as a kid, he told me it was a testy creatures in best of times. Hate to see how a disappointed one might act.

Great writing!

NEWFOUNDLAND is getting totally bombarded with logbooks , videos , records.
