I am a dabbler. I am a creator. I am a teacher. Among my hobbies are lapidary, carving, sewing, cooking, poetry, short stories, world design, game design, roleplay, photography, graphic manipulation and creation, DJing, bump making, parody writing, remixing, recording parodies, altering and decorating hats and clothes, making walking sticks, staffs, and canes, and generally anything else that comes into my head. I cannot draw to save my life, but I love to read, I love to create, I love to reach out and touch the lives of others, and be touched in turn. I am a husband. I am a father. I am a bird owner. I am student. I am too many things for a brief paragraph to possibly communicate. So come know me, and let me know you. On KoL I am known as the DJ Prima Vera Angelhair.

Over the last couple of years my personal style has really... evolved. I've changed, and I've pushed a lot of my skills to new limits. I keep pushing them farther, learning more, and seeing just what I can do in myriad fields. I enjoy sharing what I learn with others, and hope to both take and give inspiration in the process.

Current Residence: Sillinoise
deviantWEAR sizing preference: Extra Large Tall
Favourite genre of music: There simply isn't enough room; check my DJ page.
Operating System: XP
MP3 player of choice: Winamp
Shell of choice: Abalone. What? They're pretty.
Skin of choice: My own. I am quite comfortable in it.
Favourite cartoon character: I need to think about this one hard
Personal Quote: Think. Intelligence is perhaps the least valued and most valuable trait in America.

Raccoon Journals 9.5 - Open House

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 13, 2014, 5:17 AM


This is quite late in coming; computer woes had us down for a while, but I am back with a newish computer and able to finish up my raccoon journals for the year at last.

This edition was set on July 20th, at their Sunday Open House.  It includes the showcasing of some of the permanent residents, a brief reveal of the newly arrived baby vultures, and the groundbreaking for their new eagle enclosure.

Here we have a baby Turkey Vulture.

Stinky the Screech Owl was quite the sight, and enjoyed a lot of attention, often with his friend Rob.

The Kestrels kept to themselves largely.

But the Fawns were quite curious about all of their visitors.

Momma Possum tried to hide out for much of the day, but was brought out for a bit.  Blind and mostly deaf, she had little trouble with the crowds.

The Ducklings stayed in for the most part, as did the more injured Goslings, though the five healthy ones were set free to roam in the meadow to the right of the main center.

They broke ground for the new eagle enclosure they intend to build.  There was a big ceremony, complete with several children in eagle costumes.  No actual eagles yet.

Squirrels were everywhere it seems, both in enclosures and wild.

The Minks also made an appearance.  Amusingly, not long after it was discovered that they'd been leaving their enclosure via a tunnel they'd discovered, but going back because they knew they could get food there.

Here is a brief glimpse of the Cardinal.

Visitors got to see the noon feeding of the few Raccoons still indoors.

One of the supporters takes in abandoned domestic animals; dogs, cats, birds, and more.  She had a pair of young birds with her she was looking after, too young to be left alone for long, a finch and a budgie.

Another big event was the naming of the young Red-Tailed Hawk that would become a permanent resident due to a bad leg and wing.  Voting was done via contributions, and the name which won was Eragon.
