I remember the first time I actually saw one play possum. It was down south. I stood there like a little kid, holding my breath almost while waiting for it to wake up again. That after I realized the dog probably hadn't killed it, of course.. Even clapped my hands when it got up and wandered off into the woods, LOL!
I've always been a kid at heart though. Hope as I get older than a rock, beings as I'm already older than dirt, I don't loose that "little kid" in my soul..... The wonders of this world are still too awesome to take for granted.
:)
Oh girl I know what you mean! I am still like a little kid. Everybody just shakes their head at me. I hear the statement, "you ain't right" a lot. LOL If the body could only keep up with the mind. lol

while Amendment 1 does state that Congress will make no law abeidging the freedom of speech, the Constitution itself affords life, libery, and pursuit of happiness.

That means to me that Congress will also not make any law to prohibit the rights of individuals or groups of individuals to Peacefully assemble and will not force upon them the reqquirement to listen to or read the free speech.

Even the Westboro Baptist Church people were limited to make their free speech elsewhere.

Honey, I look at it this way: If everybody was "right", we'd have no comedy, hehe!
(Speaking of someone who "ain't right") I adore Jeff Dunham and his puppets, ROFLMBO!! Now THAT'S a man that truly ain't right, hehe!!

The body and mind thing? Well yeah, that has hit close to home this year. I'm still kickin' though. And plan to for some years to come.

By the way, I finally made the decision to stop smoking. I did just that a little over two weeks ago now. Haven't touched a cigarette since. I'm on a roll... Bring it on 2013. I'm ready for ya!!

Good morning everybody!:)
That old possum didn't pass out. He pulled one over on you by "playing possum" - acting dead. lol My dog just irritates the heck out of them until they sull up and play dead then he slobbers all over them! LOL I went out one night to see what all the barking was about. While strolling along I nearly sttepped on one of those little boogers laying on his side all pitiful looking. I thought he was dead until I poked at him a little bit and he finally moved. Did you get a look at those teeth?!? lol
My kids and I raised two, whose mother was killed by a car. I kept them for 4 more months, a our vet advised, in order that they grew large enough to be independent in the wild. They are marsupials, like kangaroos, whose young finish development in mom's belly pouch. Then they stay close to mamma, hitching a ride on her back until they are 4-6 months old. I successfully let them go, and about two months afterward, we got paid a visit from the little female, so I know that at least one survived.

Jeff Dunham is the best. He has me crying with laughter till my sides hurt. Among my favorite puppets are Peanuts, Achmed, the dead terrorist,and Walter. I stopped smoking 9 months ago. I smoke electronic cigarettes. That helped me quit.

You know, I've seen wildlife photos of them riding on their Momma's backs, but have never seen that happening in person. That would be a wonder to behold in my opinion...

I love nature and animals. I can go outside and find an oddly shaped mushroom, flower or a strange plant that will keep me occupied for a little while as I admire it. Guess I'm a strange one.

Hey, Lala. On the subject of those baby possums you saved, what did you feed them? Did you have to bottle feed them I suppose? What kind of milk, etc?

The V2 cigs are what I'm using. Since day one I've not had a craving for a real cig.

And yes, Jeff Dunham is pure insanity, hehe! I like Walter, but probably Achmed is my fave! He had a show on the Comedy Channel I think it was, last weekend. Thought I'd pee myself a little watching it. Some of the skits were new to me..

I have not stayed up for New Year's since I stayed up all night working on a computer system for Y2K. LOL I suppose tonight will be no different.

Not any stranger than the rest of us on this thread. Although we are not exactly alike in personality, we have enough things in common to stay "linked" together as friends. All of us are in tune with nature, in various ways. We can share opposing views while still respecting the other person, and none of us feel "threatened" by diverse opinion. Most importantly, I think, is that we feel a part of nature, not superior to it, and we seek strength and comfort, and Wisdom from Our Creator, no matter how we perceive Him to be.

I'll try to stay up. For what reason, I have no clue.

There will be no Dick Clark this year... He was a lifetime icon to me during New Years celebrations. I never missed watching him, if even for just a few minutes.

Did your all nighter for Y2K accomplish what you wanted? I sat in front of my PC monitor that night with some friends over at the house. We were counting down the seconds, drinking champagne, and almost begging it to zap out, hehe! Nothing happened, obviously....

I will stay home for New Year's Eve. I was never one for partying or drinking (although I like a "fancy" frozen drink on occasion). We have our little guy to take care of, and I still don't feel comfortable leaving him with other folks, even though our neighbor friends have offered on many occasions. After evening chores are done, I will settle in with a good book to read. I may even scan Topix on occasion, to see if anybody else has such a quiet existence. How about everyone else?? I'll bet AB has got herself a date with her new Beau.

Great! I'm proud of you for laying down those cigarettes.:) I have lost a couple people very dear to me because of cigarettes so I have a deep hate for those evil little things. I'm sure you will feel even better and that is great.:)

So true, who wants to grow up anyway! LOL My boyfriend almost bums me out sometimes. I get some big idea about something I'm gonna do and he has to remind me that the last time I did that was probably about 30 years ago. So, whatever!!! lol Sometimes I just have to show him a thing or two.:)
I have seen a little of Jeff Dunham and Ahmed the Terrrorist, funny! lol

I am staying in medicated and coughing while passing up fun at two parties I always hit every year, plus the flyby happy wishes for my favorite little bar like Cheers, lots of family and friends. Oh well, suits me after the year I have had. Maybe next year if I am here. Tonight I will reflect on this year and try to come to grips with it, ponder on what the New Year may hold and what I would like it to hold. Then how to achieve it. At midnight, I will toast the year, all my loved ones and friends, drink my glass of Martini and Rossi Asti Spumanti I always have, say a pray for our country, and the world and lastly thank my Creator for all I do have and watch a movie or go to bed.

It is what it is. My son works til closing tonight and he and his girlfriend will stop by and I am grateful for that. I just hope the freezing rain/s isn't a problem out there and everyone is safe no matter what they are doing.

Congrats on the non smoking.:)

Well said. Have a Happy New Year, my friend. Love,(((HUGS))), and blessings. I am hoping to see some of our dear friends show up, like Peace, watch, Specialist, Prepper, Hicky, Betty, LSD923 etc.. I miss them.

Santa brought me a new 20 gauge shotgun for Christmas, among with an assortment of other 'needful' accessories to go along with it. I might make some noise of my own out there if I hear trespassers or the likes getting too close for comfort.. For not having any neighbors close by, we've had some very strange things going on around here. Odd noises and occasional gunfire off in the hills, etc.

Other than that, I'm with Lala. I've got a good book or two still left to finish, a brand new shotgun, and a new coffee pot. What more could a girl ask for, pray tell? Other than taking a hot bubble bath and putting on some new P.Jammies and warm fuzzy house slippers before midnight, that is.....

That's neat.:) I have heard that if you see one hit on the road to check the pouch and their might be babies. I haven't ever done that for fear of getting ran over like the possum did! LOL If I ever ran across a baby one I'd sure be tempted to make a pet out of it, even though that's not really good. It is neat how they can hang on and ride on their mama. I tried to push one off the porch rail one night and could not budge him he was hanging on so tight!
