The Return of the Possum

   I'm assuming I know what THIS means:
   The possum friend has returned from her winter vacation in some tropical climate and has taken up residence under my deck again. The possum sits there just under the deck, with her hair poking through the boards, and her beady little eyes glancing up to taunt my dog. Aki won't leave that spot. She's scratched all the stain off the deck in that corner. She won't go out in the yard to relieve herself. She doesn't want to eat. I have to drag her inside, and as soon as she's in, she's desperate to get back out. Sigh. Their persistence astounds me—both are too stubborn to leave!
