Here’s TACKY RACCOON’s Very First Post from 3 August 2007. I didn’t know what I was doing at the time, and I’m still not entirely sure that I know now.

The image of the laughing (?) raccoon is from (appropriately enough) SayNoToCrack, Anita Bath’s original clean humor website.  She got me started on all this absurdity, then I stepped in it and tracked it all over the carpet.

Thanks gobs for all your encouragement, help, and stuff, and especially for all y’alls comments and linkoids.  Do we keep on keepin’ on?
