Mamma's Gift

I know the suspense is killing you so here we go...

I cannot believe we kept this surprise a secret for like almost a whole day. Lucy & I knew just what Mamma wanted- her being from backwoods SC anyway. We kept it in the backyard until she went out to collect our toys. We watched out the door as it came into her view. She was so excited she about jumped out of her skin! She hollered and danced. We just know Puddles heard her across the 'hood.

And this is what Mamma saw...

OMD OMD OMD!!! Can you believe it?!? WE got us a possum!! Puddles, are you proud? We do our part for neighborhood watch!!

I'm just thinking about some possum pizza. Yummy!! Or maybe we should get the crock pot out? We could have a tailgate party this weekend?

Mamma did you like your pressie?

Mamma Heartbeat here. My little precious perfect angels were just exhausted after their mighty hunt. I can't tell if it got rained on or if they tried to lick it back alive for another play session. 

While I didn't use salad tongs, I did pick the damn thing up with shovel and sling it over the fence. What should I do with this thing seriously? Do I need to bury it? I'm hoping it was just playing possum and will wake up and walk away!


  1. WOOHOO! No salad tongs? That's really too bad =)

    Congrats to the mighty hunters!

    All of my best treasures go to the dump. It's the rudest thing.


  2. Puddles will be sooooooo proud. Now that it is over the fence do ya think some other critter will drag it back?

  3. Excellent hunting, you two!!

  10. Oh boy!! What a gift! :) Riley likes to bring me dead animals too. Never anything as big as a possum though. Puddles must be so proud!

    I always make Riley's Grandpa get rid of the dead animals! Which usually involves throwing them over the back fence into the abandoned lot behind us for the birds to eat. Yuck.

    Great job, Calhoun and Lucy!! :)
