My fenced area goes all the way up to the metal roof and has the black rubber at the bottom. The only time I have had a pesky varmit (opossum) in the "barn" is when I left the storm door (old used one) opem so the chickens could free range. My boot in his hiney made him decide to move on. LOL Plus, my dog showed him the way back into the woods.
Excellent set up! My fence isn't that high, so that's why I asked.

My dogs got hold of an opossum last summer that kept sneaking in under the gate. I was SURE it was dead after all the blood, fur and spit stopped flying that night... But that critter had apparently done what they do best, and passed out. Dang, if that thing didn't wander off though in the time it took me I bring the dogs inside and clean the blood off of them to make sure it wasn't THEIRS. When I went back out to check on it, hoping I wouldn't have to "finish" the job and put it out of it's misery, it was gone like it'd never been there...

I didn't see it again for quite a few days. But sure enough, it returned. Perhaps they gave it brain damage and it had short term memory loss after that attack? ROFLMBO!! I'll never know. It eventually stopped coming to visit as well.

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

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!!

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..

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.
