More adventures with opossums, or, this is how marriage works

This is what I did for Mother’s Day

Ranting About Rectangles

This morning started out like any other morning. I was half awake, in my pajamas, outside feeding the rabbits and chickens. And then my husband shouted from the garage door “There’s an opossum in the cat food!”

It was suddenly not an ordinary day, and I was very awake.

Turns out a very young opossum had gotten into our garage and into the cat food bag. The cat and dog food bags are stored in an aluminum trash can with a tight fitting lid, but it must not have been put on correctly last night. It happens; I’m just glad hubby looked into the bag before reaching in.

The ‘possum wasn’t going anywhere, so hubby went inside to put on something more substantial than pajamas. I got the pitchfork and decided to make sure THIS opossum never graduated to eating my chicken’s eggs – but hubby had other ideas.

Gone Fishin’ … for Rocks and Trees?

So my wife and I went fishing Saturday. Apparently we were not clear about our goals… which can be a problem in some marriages. You know the “C-word”: communication. I assumed we were going fishing to catch fish.

At least I had my camera with me to document our triumphant fishing expedition.

Gone Rock Fishing?
My wife caught a large rock. It was a whopper and too big to haul in… so she went into the water to land the beast. I’m guessing it got away because she certainly didn’t carry a rock back with her. Maybe she did catch and release…
Gone Tree Fishing?
It has been a long time since I hooked a tree. Let me tell you, after an epic battle, this monster finally snapped my line and remains at large. Instead of a tall fish story… this is a tall tree story. Except I think mine is believable because of the photographic evidence.
Spring is definitely here.
I think my area of the Northwest only has three seasons… Spring, Summer, and Fall… and the fall is like 6 months long. But that’s okay because green is my favorite color.
My wife and I fishing for rocks
Yes, we were fish and rock fishing. But we needed a big boat, probably an aircraft carrier, to land this giant rock … *sigh*
The water was pretty but I wasn't sure there were fish in it
The water was pretty but I’m not sure there were fish in it because we sure as heck didn’t catch any fish.
The sun in a cloud or jet trail?
I’m 98.975-percent positive this is not an alien ship landing, but it looked really cool.

I liked this view but couldn't get a good picture of it
