Remember my recent tales of the possum in the garage?
A few days ago, I set a bag of overripe apples on the back deck with the intention of taking them out to the back fence row to leave for the deer.
I noticed apples had been taken out of the bag and nibbled on. In fact, the bag must’ve been tipped over because I saw my dog carrying an apple around.
Since they were near the bird feeders, I thought the birds were eating them.
Last night, a movement on the deck caught my attention. When I opened the door, I saw our friend, the possum, eating an apple and looking right at me!!
I slammed the door and it ran under the chairs. Whew! That was close! Now, you would think it would run for its life, but nooooooooo! It stuck around and started chomping on an apple closer to the chair!
This time I ran for a camera! The pictures are quite awful.
I’m quite surprised how unafraid it was. Heck, after our 3 a.m. meet up in the garage, maybe it thinks I’m pretty darn cool. I mean, I did shut off that stinking radio.
Who knows. Maybe it thinks we’re pals and this time it was saying, “By apples, thank you for the snack, lady!”
