    A guy on our street had to deal with a dead, decaying rat under his house. No skunks here though. But the Major League Human Cannonball Hall of Fame had to close for a couple of days once when a skunk got into the basement.

    Yes, and happily, too if each of you have a great sense of humor. Trust that there are more of us that you can ever guess.

    We once had a dead mouse in the car. Our mechanic said he could pull apart the dash and find it, but the best thing was to just keep the windows open as much as possible and the smell would go away. We eventually found it in the ash tray.

    And yes, Capndunzz, we’ll be celebrating 39 years on Thanksgiving Day. Just getting started.

    my daughter and her husband had a skunk under their house once and had to move out for 3 days until the house aired out. After the skunk was gone they closed up the space where he got in.

    Only 49 years, 4 months, and 4 days so far, looking forward to 70! We are the only ones in our close family that have not been divorced.

    I’ve seen a lot of really long-lasting marriages. Love, humor, patience, forgiveness and compromise seem to be the key. And respect of course!

    Congratulations aaron! Not many of us are as lucky or smart enough to get the right mate. Happy 50 and many more.

    We have had all of our cats sprayed at one time or another, use baking soda, dawn dish liquid, peroxide, and warm water. We out this in a 6 gal plastic bucket, 3/4 water, a squirt of dawn, 1/2 cup baking soda, and half pint of peroxide. Works great, we soak the cats for 10 minutes, keeping their heads above the water. Use hand to wipe their face and head.

    We don’t have skunks in the UK, but plenty of other animals spray to deter their enemies. Would milk have a similar effect to that of tomato?

    Of my four sibs and me, the firstborn is the only one who has had a problem with keeping a marriage intact (lost two of them). I married late; so I just hit 18 years; but the rest of them, including the youngest (who married early), have been married over 30. My parents, who also married late (especially for the time), would have been married for 33 years if my dad had waited a week or two to have his heart attack (like he could plan it, of course).

    Wait a minute: Both the dog and the wife smell of skunk — shouldn’t she be the one who goes and sleeps in the garage with the dog?

    She cleaned it up so he didn’t have too (even though he let the dog out alone off leash) so he should be happy with that. My X could not deal with anything that smelled (even if he did it). I have cleaned up floods of sewer water and lots more. You train yourself to ignore it. Love is more important. My parents lived through 60+

    poor Max. Imagine how terrible is this smell for dog’s nose 1000 times more sensitive to smells than human nose
