Thanks to all for your responses, perspectives and views on this pseudo-comical/serious matter for me:

No, I will not go to the hospital nor take shots. Can you imagine the hoot they would get out of "a coon licked me". I have been to hospitals
twice over the past years for *poisonous* spider/snake bites, and the the tetanus and anti-venoms alone about did me in.

Oh, I would *love* to have it all recorded. I failed to mention that I jumped up into the chair and *they* looked at me like I was some kind of
zombie before they scurried away. Too bad the cameras are on the outside of the house, not the inside.

My, my, you sound just like my dad's aunt who's meeting the century mark--when I conveyed what happened she said the most exact words you did
(though you are more inspirational). We have eastern native american blood in our lineage and I guess she's one of the few elders/keepers
You don't seem physically as old as her--but spiritually like a wise owl.

Are the coons ok? heh, heh. Hadn't thought of that but they may be adversely effected by the OPI toxins from my nails....Hope not!
Oh, they won't be back. Normally I have 1 or 2 dogs or a human with me, and this hasn't happened ever. (Crosses fingers)

Umm......whacking animals with golf clubs.........perhaps you should see someone about that.....thats kind of disturbing......
Dude...I totally agree...
However, there are people that eat 'coons, 'possums and the like...err, swat, or road kill, I guess.
Gross to me but delectable to them. In one southern town, they have a market where they put them up with one paw left on so that the customers are
assured of what they're buying .....
