‘Possum Kingdom

with 2 comments

‘When a man opens a pit, or when a man digs a pit and does not cover it, and an ox or a donkey [or a ‘possum?] falls into it, the owner of the pit shall make restoration. He shall give money to its owner, and the dead beast shall be his.’  ~ Exodus 21:33, 34


I saw Jacob and Laura at church to-day which reminded me that 1) it has been quite a while since the Hayneses (does that look right?) last were in town and 2) I need to post the picture from my opossum adventure to pair with theirs

I would like to end this post with a very important caveat: Not all ‘possums are bad.  Some (like the one below) are downright fantastic!

    We might be able to market trash cans as “Genuine Opossum (and the occasional Coon) Traps” should the demand ever arrise.

  2. Those critters are creepy–but they sure are smart, too.
