Are you playin' possum?

I remember as a kid we'd do this all the time to my grandmother. We'd play "possum" and act like we were sleeping. However, today when I let Sadie out to go to the backyard, she wouldn't quit barking. Drew climbed up on the chair to scream at her to "suddup" (shut up -- no, it's not nice that he says that BUT he knows he can only say it to the dogs... kind of monkey see / monkey do around here huh?) If that's the worst thing he repeats, I'm doing pretty good! :) ha!

So any-who, she's barkin' up a storm so I look at the window and she's barking at SOMETHING on the other side of the fence (the back yard is divided into a "dog side" and a "kid side" because I don't want to have to dodge "land mines" when I walk. Works out great (unless the kids leave the gate open... that's a whole other post, however).

I see it's SOMETHING very small and with a white face and then I remember Josh has been saying he's seen an opossum walking around on the fence. This little thing... it's the size of a hedgehog. He's so cute! :) He was so trying to be tough showing those teeth... ha ha... yeah... looks like he might be able to do some damage... to my pinkie toe. :) Cute nevertheless...

I have a little video clip if I can get it to work - the little bark at the end is Lola. :) I'll have to figure that out though... never posted video.
