Talking Got me a possum!

Well I wish I had been able to get pictures of this old boy last week, you would not have believed how darned big he was. He was on the front porch tearing into a bag of garbage, and when I poked the bag with the old single shot I wasn't expecting anything half his size to come waddling out like he owned the place. Federal 20 gauge 2 3/4" 7/8ths #6 put him to sleep right proper. I was so jacked up for several days afterwards that I almost considered going coon hunting despite my bad health. Family talked me out of it, but man. The smell of burnt powder, the sound of the ejector on that old H&R, the rattle of the plastic hull hittin the porch..... good Lord willing I'm going to get my health turned around one of these days and put a fear into the vermint population around here again!

God Bless

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. - John 3:16 KJV

Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun. - Ecclesiastes 8:15 KJV

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." - 40th President of the United States Ronald Reagan 1911-2004
