Pieces of evidence sometimes are found at the most unexpected times.  Such was the case a year ago when my wife found small footprints in Idaho.

Our youngest son Eli was married on the 3rd of October 2009. It was an outside ceremony at the gazebo in Washington Park in Springfield, Illinois.  As my wife and I were slowly walking up the sidewalk towards the gazebo she said “Look, footprints.”  Again, as a year ago my response in disbelief was “Sure, who are you kidding?”

My wife said “Look!” And sure enough there in the sidewalk which had been poured many a year ago were a set of little inch long raccoon tracks.
