Neighborhood Dogs in Barking Frenzy over Missed Photo Op

Possum on the porch!!!!

My iPhone was on the charger, instead of in my pocket, and by the time I got my digital camera out of the pantry, out of its camera case, and turned off the automatic flash so I could take a picture through the window of the slider, well, the possum was meandering down the steps.

One shot was all I got, and it was blurry, and it was dusk.

He’s still out there, though.  I know this, even though the sun has set, and he is no longer on the porch.  I know this because my dog, and the dog next door, are both in a barking frenzy.  Which they would never do if there were burglars. No, these dogs only guard the neighborhood against trespassing creatures.

    I walked out on my porch one night and got hissed at by one. They scare the heebie jeebies out of me LOL. I think I would rather run into a bear than a possum. I dont know why I fear them so much, but then again, I dont know why Im scared to death of clowns either LOL. Guess Im just crazy hehehe

    When we lived in Northern California in an apartment complex that had little garden patios in front of each apartment, one of our neighbors kept telling us about this GIANT rat she kept seeing. You guess it – possum. LOL We didn't tell her. We let her keep thinking it was a rat. Ooooh….we were bad neighbors!!!
