Greetings All  - I spotted a BIG Opossum outside my kitchen window yesterday morning raiding the catfood bowl. Are Opossums supposed to come out during the day?  I don't really recall seeing one during the day. Anyway, it ate (cleaned the entire bowl) and waddled off to wherever.  It was pretty darn cute. I didn't snap a picture to share because I didn't want to open the screen door and startle it away. Being Easter - I told myself that it had scored its kind of Easter eggs on this particular Sunday morning hunt - ha (!!) - and let it be undisturbed. Collected these 12 pieces of fun + interesting + recipes for today. Click away and enjoy!
