Sunday Pause (Paws): Music…It Moves The Soul

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and let some music take you away.

I felt like she knew it was me and I was coming home. In fact it gave me such a happy feeling I started walking faster and I started talking to her at the other side of the door as I was working the key in the lock. I was as excited to see her as she was to see me! After all, I get to see this cute face. 🙂

Polly the Opossum

Someone I know shared the following pictures of an opossum that frequently visited her and her family for a season.

Sylvia decided to go on the internet to see what possums liked to eat. Then Sylvia started putting food in a can and Continue reading
