Mr. Raccoon is coming home!

It was a bitter winter in deed. Mr. Raccoon looked at his bruised paws and started to wonder if they would heal soon . He thought about his friends and how much he missed them. It had been a long time since he’d been in the Butter Castle in Nowhere. Now it was time to go back, but his paws hurt and the blistering wind upon his face let him know that it would be a long time, if ever, before he would…

Raccoon!!! Oh our dear, dear raccoon! Come into the Castle of Butter with us and we shall apply some butter to your wounds....what happened old man? We must sit around the campfire before we find the others and talk of your adventures. How good it is to have you back old fellow....we missed you so! Tea and Rattus

I like Raccoon. Some people stereotype raccoons as all being robbers and thieves because the have that natural mask, but I assure Mr. Raccoon is a character of virtue. Having said, he might want to steal some gloves and shoes so he doesn't get frost bite on his hands and feet again.

Cute drawing, and I love the little bunnies in the background.

Love

Rattus

Dearest Raccoon..so good to see you..We will ask Miss Moussie to knit you some warm mittens...

Wonderful drawing..is it watercolor and pencil..?
I believe with all the illustrations we are gathering in Nowhere we could easily make a book!

Good evening dear Dutchess, I used pencil and water color but I erased the pencil marks slighly and highlighted with water proof ink pen.
Thank you Miss Moussie... Mr. Raccoon is in need of some good homemade mittens!Smiles~

YES! We await the arrival of a new little friend....some other fabulous characters have gotten wind that there are some fine friends in Nowhere, so don't be surprised if you see some other friends drop by in a couple of days, especially after Bebe comes into town!! Anita

And oh yes dearest Tita, we are from the same mold!!!
