So, the other morning, I let Sean out, and he glanced into the 5 gallon bucket next to the side door. He usually ignores it, so I also looked in. Lo and behold, a tiny possum! He was the size of a guinea pig, and for a possum, was actually cute with his giant black eyes and his crinkly ears.

Somehow, he'd fallen into the bucket over night and got trapped.

I think I now have a reason to suspect possums as part of the crew who have been hauling off my produce before I pick it!

I snapped this pic and then laid the bucket down so he could find his way home. I think he was too young to even know how to play possum! While I was looking at him, he just looked at me with those glossy eyes. I couldn't help thinking he'd make a great Beatrix Potter character.

Hmmm, are you the one who keeps eating my tomatoes and peppers?


Hats Make Me Happy

Hats Make Me Happy
An Easter Hat and Me

Step into my inner world.

Sometimes, I hesitate to share thoughts that flit and emotions that surge and wane. Yet I so value when my friends share these insights with me. I get to know them in a special way.

So I invite you to get to know me - or continue knowing me - through this space of exploration.

I promise to reveal some of the joys, fears, observations, profundity, and ironies of life that come to mind day by day.

Don't forget to share with me your own inner sphere!
