Raccoon sighting

There was a raccoon eating grapes from my grape tree. I no longer have grapes and I cleaned up after the raccoon but watch out the raccoon is big. I'm worried about kids and dogs. I called 311 and alderman and animal control. They said they can't do andything unless the raccoon bites someone.

    They eat Elotes from food carts!

  • Years ago, a friend of mine shooed a raccoon from her deck. He fell as he was climbing down, then staggered away - the grapes had fermented, he was drunk! Too bad she didn't have a camera...

Found Lawn Chair after Dead Poets Society movie in the park

Someone forgot their lawn chair at the park after the Dead Poets Society movie. If you can describe it I'll get it back to you ASAP.

P.S.: maybe next time they should run the DVD they're projecting from off of a Mac. Just saying.

Mystery Train Horn

I live near Chicago and Damen. I've been hearing what's sounds like a train horn most of the late morning and early afternoon.

Just curious if anyone knows of a train that runs close enough that you might hear a train horn. I've lived here for two years and haven't really noticed it before

Grey cat on Honore and Thomas

Looks like a house cat, well groomed and seemed friendly. No collar. Couldn't get to it because I was walking my dog at the time.

    It is possible that's Rhine. She has a home. Her owners let her roam.
