Clara~ the Mighty Huntress!!!

Clara's main form of entertainment is slaying possums. Lucky for her, there seems to be an endless supply of possums in my yard. I don't know where they come from, or where they live. I've never seen a live possum in my yard. Usually I wake up to the sound of Clara's barking and look out the window to see that she's slayed again. I keep a shovel near the backdoor, so it's not a big chore to scoop up the corpse and toss it over the fence.

I would never tell Clara this, but she has never killed one possum. Every time that I've thrown a seemingly dead varmit over the fence, I've come back later and found that the critter had magically resurrected and disappeared. For all I know, it's the same possum creeping into my yard time and time again. Maybe it enjoys the game as much as Clara does.

Maybe it's the same possum who "dines" with Lynn's cats. BTW, Clara is King, Cletus, and Lady's mama. I guess you knew that.

Of course I knew that.

It's hard to believe that little Clara produced such big offspring. I'd bet that each of her kids are twice her weight.

Oh my lawd, Thank goodness the possums are still alive. Some of your best friends are possums
