Promised Possum

Well, here he is. The little guy I wrote about earlier. I usually see them play-acting or deceased at the side of the road, and though I can't say it was a "treat" to meet face to face, it was - at the very least - an interesting interaction!

Several years ago my dog was barking in the backyard at something. I decided to check it out and found nothing significant but the dog kept insisting so I peeked over the 6 foot tall fence and came face to face with a racoon! Not a pleasnt experience but as you said a very interesting encounter to say the least! BTW, if you miss those box elder bugs I'm sure I could box up a few and ship them to you!! LOL

Bizarre little critters, aren't they? Seems like I heard somewhere that possums continue to grow until they die. Also raccoons and beavers.

Useless fact of the day ;) ...

These lovelies are EVERYWHERE around here. They like to run on top of the slumpstone walls that surround so many of the houses. Giant rats, if you ask me.
