Possum!

Woke up this morning to this little visitor! The dogs had been barking about 2 am this morning, but we just thought they needed to go out. Well, turns out they must've seen this baby possum getting IN!
I heard something fall off the shelf in the hall, turned around to look, and there was the baby possum trying to scramble over to the closet! He really was a cute little guy, only about 7-8 inches, not counting his tail. DH put him in a box and turned him loose out in the yard. Yikes! I hope he doesn't try to visit again! We think he may have been in the attic and who knows how he got in from there!
Here's a photo of 2 of the "barkers!" We are babysitting the grand dogs for our DD and SIL while they are on vacation. These 2 are pretty spoiled! Not by us of course!! The chocolate cocker spaniel is from when DD and her hubby ran a dog rescue. They have 4 spaniels.
Flea Market Friday is postponed for this week at least.
Just too many dogs, possums, and craziness around here.
I did get a new HP All-In-One yesterday. That's keeping me busy. I am scanning ALL of my dad's old family photos from way back in the 30's-40's, etc. It's fun. I love those vintage pics!Dad is 93! He wants to make cd's for all the kids to keep, before the photos disentegrate.
Hope everyone has a fun, safe Memorial weekend!!

Oh my! I think I would have had a heart attack! But he really IS a cute little critter! And love those spaniels...especially the chocolate one. What a pretty color! Have a nice weekend! ~~Annie

I agree...I would have had a heart attack seeing him running free in my house. He is pretty cute when confined to the box. Makes a great story! Happy Saturday ~Natalie

He was so little that I stayed pretty calm. LoL! BUT, you won't believe it....another one showed up last night....we *think* he was a different one cause he looked smaller. I think they want to move in with us!! Yikes!!!

Oh what pretty pups ! Cute little possum too. Better a possum than a snake in your house. My parents had 2 snakes in their house years ago.

Such a cute little intruder! lol It's a good thing the dogs were there at the time or that little fella may have hidden somewhere and who knows when you may have found him!
The dogs are so cute. I used to babysit (ahem...dogsit) for some people who had spaniels...talk about spoiled!

Hi ladies!

Ewwwww, snakes! I would run for sure!! LoL!

I will be thrilled when the granddogs go home! It's been raining, and these dogs don't like to get their paws wet!

I'm ready for some sort of *normal* to return!

Thanks for the comments y'all!
