Hey SSG, you ever seen the mouthful of teeth those critters have? Like sheep advises, don't try to get too friendly with one.

Re: Oh, Possum (another lame ssg photo thread)

Reminds me of some old memories back in my F2 days. I'd just come home (Wichita) very late from visiting my brother in Omaha. Weary from the long weekend, little sleep, and a fairly long bike ride I was greated by a snarling grin as I entered my duplex. There was a possum head sticking out of my wall and it was just as surprised as I was. Apparently the fake fireplace, that was now empty except for possum, had a vent in the back that had been wall papered over. The damn city rat had found it's way in but couldn't get all the way through the opening. I got a broom handle and tried to push it back out to no avail. I ended up wearing gloves, wrapping a towel over it's head, yanking it out, then tossing it back outside.

Once I had the hole cleared of possum I set about capping the hole properly. Then I heard something scurrying in my kitchen. There was another one that had made it through and was trying to get into my trash. Armed once again with the broom I "swept" it out the door. OK...so after the second possum removal I searched every nook and cranny making sure my duplex was finally possum free. Satisfied with my recon work and finding no more furry visitors I was more than freeked out, but very tired and ready for bed.

Lights out and my head hits the pillow. No sooner had I closed my eyes when I got a very earie feeling and thought I heard something. I couldn't get to the light switch fast enough. Directly above my bed at the top of the window curtains was another friken possum. The fabric was a thick-loose weave making it easy to climb. So I ran for the broom and knocked his ass off. After another clean sweep I made damn sure that there was absolutely nothing else home, but me. I think they were juvinile possums since they were traveling together and weren't as big as others I'd seen. Needless to say I slept with the lights on that night. TRUE STORY!

I do all my own stunts.

If I had a gun that would be the one animal that I would pick off without thinking twice. Ugly and nasty not to mention they make one hell of a crunch when you run them over
