When we got home later on Friday night after seeing Pirates, my RRHB was outside in the backyard for a minute, when he shouted, "Come here and look at this! It's an animal with a long, thin tail!"
I told him it was probably a small raccoon and to leave the damn thing alone. But ever-curious, he snapped open his tool case, found his mega-flashlight, and went back outside to shine a light on our grape vine. What did we find? A Virginia Opossum. They are North America's only marsupial. Also, they like to eat fruit and berries, hence the grape vine, and I certainly hope he feasted well that night, because I have no idea what we're going to do with the wealth of grapes we've got this season.
Much, much more exciting than a raccoon!
