It was the biggest

possum that I had ever seen. Heading across Rose St with all the speed it could muster I saw it out of the corner of my eye and hit the brakes. Didn’t hit it. Critter turned as it made the far side of the road and I would swear it sneered at me. Did I mention this was at just after 2100 so it was dark, the possum was dirty white and those eyes looked really, really red.

College Guy says that there is a huge one that hangs out in a tree behind CVS which has been known to hiss at him. We figure it is the same one, Between the restaurants, CVS and the JCC I am sure that it is no where near starving to death.

Haven’t been to Paris or Rome today – but have been to Walnut Creek, Richmond, San Francisco and Berkeley. I think that is probably more than enough!

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
