Opossums - Varmints - 78


It’s a passel of fun this week as Paul and Donna talk about the varmint featured in the logo: those darling little opossums!

But first, the news!

“Just because you eat trash all week doesn’t mean you shouldn’t drink like a king once in a while.”



Like ticks? No you don’t. Nobody does. Except opossums. They think ticks are delicious!

“moar ticks plz?”

Opossums do a pretty decent job of acting and smelling like they aren’t alive anymore. 

“Move along, nothing to see here.”

 That’s a catchy tune!

Heidi was euthanized recently because she was very old and in a great deal of pain that the vets could not treat but she had a good run, and a comfy life. Enjoy!
