Marta and I might write a kids book about our Christmas visitors


You might remember this post: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021953835

We stopped seeing any possums in the Spring.

As our family was gathering in the dinning room Christmas Eve. A lone female deer showed up to eat corn, bread, etc we had left out for the critters that stop by on the other side of the fence. The city dwellers really enjoyed it.

I went out before dinner Christmas day to feed the critters. Marta was cooking and I sat down to start the laptop. I told Marta something small and furry was coming up the hill to eat. At first I thought it was a groundhog. To my surprise nature sent us a possum to enjoy watching. Then another one started up the hill. Seeing the smiling white faces enjoying their dinner is special to us. Then the two of them started playing. It looked like the way otters play. What a way to enjoy dinner.

We haven't seen them since. But everything we put out before dusk is gone in the morning.

I've posted 100's of animal rescue stories over the years

You would think a retired guy could keep up on his email. I'm a week behind. That means I have many stories I hope to post over the next few days when I finally get caught up.

All three of our K9 kids are rescues. Sweetie came from Hearts United with a broken leg. How can an owner do that in anger? I just don't understand. She would later become the ASPCA rescued dog of the week several years ago. Here is the old DU story about it: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=132x3581271

Our dogs are provided for in our will. There is just one place we know they will be loved after we are gone. Hearts United. And they will stay together.

We have been there and watched them perform miracles.

I know it is that time of year when things can get very tight. We have DUers on the sharp line of becoming homeless and worse.

This isn't easy. I not asking you to take away from feeding the hungry and or homeless etc. IF you can afford a few $ in your charity budget, this would be a good place for it. A generous donor is matching dollar for dollar up to $100,000.

IF you ain't got it, don't feel bad. 30 years of 'Reaganomics' have many of us waiting for the promised trickle down.

I'll keep posting animal stories here.
