Nocturnal Visitor

Last night, Joel and I were sitting in the family room talking. Linux (our dog) had been barking for a few minutes and we decided that Joel should go check it out. He came back in and told me to run and get my camera.

This is what we found.

Linux had him in the corner.

Look at those teeth!

He was rather vicious looking.

Joel tried to scare him away with a broom but it didn't work. If you listen real close to the video you can hear Linux growling at it.

Wow! That was one mean creature! I don't suppose Joel wanted to shoot it, did he?. Did it "play possum"?

Well, Stephen, Joel didn't want to shoot it at 11:30 p.m. :) Micah ended up getting one of his automatic airsoft guns out but all that did was make the possum do what it's known for... play possum!

And your Mommy is curious why y'all were up at 11:30 p.m. I told it "Because Linux was barking! They had to see what was wrong." ;)

Eeek! He looks wicked! I'm almost surprised Linux didn't get hurt in the process.
