The Skunk Chronicles Part Two

Its now Tuesday. We discover that skunks love bread and we would not be having french toast on this camping trip because they managed to get to and eat half a loaf of the bread. We sit around the fire drinking coffee and warming up. We eat a huge breakfast of steak, fried potatoes, scrambled eggs and garlic bread. We sit around the fire some more (which goes all day), snack on Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies, Pecan Swirls, chips n dip etc. There is a daytime skunk sighting. Bethany and Daniel go play in the creek. Its almost lunch time but no one is hungry (I wonder why)so we opt to skip lunch. Danny & Kathy decide to drive their mail in ballots to the nearest polling place in our county; Bethany goes with them. Daniel and I go in search of more kindling and small logs for our never ending fire. We then go to "Columbus Creek" (named by Bethany & Daniel)where Daniel decides he wants to relocate a large log to "The Red Rock River"(also named by B & D). Not an easy task but, he is determined. I help get the log through a rough spot. We take a short break and Daniel goes back to work. I supervise. Later he decides to wait for Bethany to return so they can work on it together. Good plan! The voters return. B & D work on moving the log and dinner is started. Soon we feast on grilled chicken, baked potatoes and sauteed spinach. The skunks arrive as dessert is being prepared. One of the varmints wanders directly beneath Daniel's chair...he could have reach out and touched it. It finally moves away and Danny and Daniel throw rocks in the skunks direction. They scatter. We take out dessert(banana boats)into the trailer to eat them. Stay tuned...the Chronicles continue!
