There was a visitor in the yard late last night.

So ugly it was cute.

I am wet, I am miserable,I stink, and I am playing dead.


  1. Who - you or the opossum? LOL

    I love those little critters. We had a whole family living under our house once. Very strange, to hear them scratching. They left on their own accord.

  2. One of these days I want to catch one and give it a good shampooing and conditioning!

  3. aghghgh!! You are the bravest person i know! Why weren't you afraid of getting a disease!?

  4. I am not sure if Opossums are any more disease ridden than your average dog or cat but they do inspire a thorough hand washing. As for being brave I do not mind being thought of as so.

  5. wow. that is really really weird looking. the ones by us are much huger, though....anyway, amazing upclose shots of it....

  6. I was going to post a comment in the spirit of HG's, expressing my shock that you picked the critter up... then I thought about what utter silliness that would be.
    And, I certainly don't want to lend more evidence to the theory that I might be a "very silly woman" :-P
    So, I shall simply say that, you are perhaps the only adult I know from whom such an act is not at all surprising.

  7. Well and truly said. Of course in hind sight any suggestion that a certain someone might be silly is at the very least ill-conceived and at most the uttering’s of an individual who has taken temporary leave of his senses.


Make my day or not with a comment!
