Attack of the Killer 'Possums!
I got some interesting information out of my entry about our little 'possum on our deck. Apparently, 'possums get mean if cornered. Jamie wrote, "...my husband was a bit of a city boy and the first time he saw one, he didn't know what it was and came running out of the house with a bat. haha It was just a baby and ran under the deck. When I told him that his monster animal from the depths of hell was just a tiny oppossum, he felt a bit silly." Hee hee!
And Joann even wrote an entry about her 'possum adventure. Although I was a little more interested to hear about her neighbor adventure! <wink>
Thanks to everyone who shared a little bit of 'possum love with us. I enjoyed it!
I've never been diagnosed with allergies, although it runs in my family. But every so often, when I first get up, I'll be really stuffed up and sneezy. It passes after about an hour, but it's really irritating when it happens. Today was such a day, and my head is finally clearing. I really don't know what causes it, and it's sporadic, so there's no point in my taking Claritin or something like that for it. At least today I was just stuffy, not sneezy (or any of the other dwarfs). I call it my Sneeze Attack, when I sneeze over and over...and over, lasting for about five minutes. It feels like I'm going to literally sneeze my head off!
Wasn't it fascinating to read about my nose? I actually DO have something substantial to write about, but I'll keep it brief. Warning: Political Content Ahead!
It seems that Senator McCain can't recall how many homes he and his wife own. From the AOL News page: "I think — I'll have my staff get to you," McCain responded to a question posed by Politico, according to a story Thursday on the publication's Web site. "It's condominiums where — I'll have them get to you." This is the guy accusing Senator Obama of being an "elitist?" He and his wife's fortune is estimated by some to be upwards of $100 million. You can probably discontinue the "elitist" charges, Senator McCain. It doesn't wash. And not knowing exactly how many homes you own seems a little odd to me. You don't just...forget a house!
