I was talking to the kids as they worked at the kitchen table this morning when I saw something scurrying through our yard out of the corner of my eye. It looked like...
"Kids! Look! It's a possum!"
Much excitement was to be found until he/she disappeared under our fence. The kids wondered if it would have played dead if we had run out there to see it. "Then we could have taken pictures of it!" (Yep, they're my kids.)
Ruth told her dad about it later and found out that he had seen a baby possum in the driveway as he left for work this morning.
I think we can quit wondering what's been digging around in the flower beds.
