No that’s not the name of a new housing development out here in the country…………nor is it what Mom’s fixing for dinner tonight…..it’s a “lead in” for a rather silly story I have to tell about something we saw last night out the front door…….
It was dark………it was in fact about an hour before my parents were going to head up to bed for the night……..and my Dad went to the front door to bring in the dish that we use to feed our feral visitor “Stevie” when she stops by for a “mooch”……….she’d left a bit of kibble in the bowl as she usually does. However, there was someone ELSE out there enjoying those little left behind tidbits.
A BIG FAT possum. This was not the first time Mr. Possum had visited the front porch to see if Stevie had left anything in the bowl after she’d had her snack! We’ve seen this guy once before – same time of evening – same circumstance. And that wasn’t ALL that was “the same”………
Mr. Possum was not just standing next to Stevie’s food bowl……he was SITTING IN HER WATER BOWL. See we also leave fresh water out for Stevie……..the bowls are next to each other. There’s always water left over at the end of the day. This guy was sitting in the water bowl and munching the food in the kibble bowl.
Mom couldn’t take a photo although she did have her camera – because this scene was too funny to miss……she was also afraid she wouldn’t be able to capture this guy on film before he’d run off…..either the flash would have scared him OR if she hadn’t used a flash she would have HAD to open the front door which would have scared him off.
So you’re just gonna have to take my word for this……….but cross my heart it happened……..and it’s the SECOND time we’ve found a possum sitting in the water bowl eating kibble from the food bowl. Now you tell me – what are the chances of there being TWO possums who like wet bottoms while they eat huh?????????????????????
Stevie is just gonna have to do a better job of eating ALL her food we put down……….Mr. Possum needs to find another place to have his all you can eat buffet……….
Hey folks…….I don’t have to make this stuff up – it just HAPPENS!
