This is pretty darned easy to remember ... the posting rules for a new diary:

Be excellent to each other... or else

From Kysen's keyboard to your eyes:

Think of our comment threads as dinner table conversations. We start with the assumption that all come to the conversation with good intentions and go from there. If you get upset or angry, get up from the table and step outside for a bit.

For those looking for a second chance to make a first impression, that is very good advice.

18 degrees in Madison WI (2.00 / 25)


Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.


Morning Meese! (2.00 / 21)
Cold and snowy in CT.  Hopefully we won't get too much :(

28.3 and snow on the ground in Saugerties (2.00 / 26)
we have a winter weather advisory for 3-6 inches

I've been up all night looking at the "rat" in my kitchen, which turned out not to be a rat at all but a young opossum.  :(

My dogs and cats are ignoring it. It is sitting on my kitchen counter near the coffee machine.

Have called an animal removal service to come trap it.

Hopefully they will show up sometime today.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Is it staring at you? (2.00 / 21)
Maybe it is waiting for you to offer it coffee ...

Good morning, Dee! Looks like we all made it to Wednesday. Getting through the day will definitely require more caffeine.

[ Parent ]
Yup. It is probably frightened (2.00 / 20)
and if it wasn't sitting so close to the coffee maker I would be less disturbed.  

I won't let hubby shoot it. Will wait for the trappers.

They may not get here till this evening though.  

Today is not my day :(

Yikes! (2.00 / 19)
Hopefully they get there soon!  I am guessing you are now deprived of your morning coffee due to that varmint.  

[ Parent ]
Hubby just snatched me some coffee (2.00 / 20)
and then went out to snow-blow the driveway and head to work.

I think I'm going to try to go back to bed in a while.

They (animal control) are not going to get here till late afternoon or early evening.

Denise, put some cat food in a carrier and leave the room (2.00 / 19)
for a bit.  It's likely hungry and scared.  Then you could close the carrier and take it outside.  Just a thought.  Opossums love cat food.

[ Parent ]
hmmm - sounds like a plan (2.00 / 15)
except my cat carrier got borrowed - I'll see if neighbor has one.  Plus will have to lock up the dogs - they adore cat food

[ Parent ]
Denise, I've caught many a young possum (2.00 / 12)
by simply laying an open paper bag near to the possum, basically giving it a place to hide. When it goes into the paper bag I just close up the paper bag and carry it outside.

My cat Buddy liked to bring juvenile possums into the house, then be disappointed and lose interest when they "played possum."  If I saw him come in the cat door with one I could get it outside easily while it was immobile, but sometimes he'd bring them in at night and I'd find them somewhere in the house hours later.

Another thought... do you know how it got in?  


[ Parent ]
a paper bag? wow. (2.00 / 11)
okay- will wait for DH to come home and he can do it - I'm a coward (the animal control folks still have not been here)

Great story. So, now you can laugh about it but I would have (2.00 / 13)
freaked out big time.  Happily the possums my cats were excited about were outside my bedroom window.  Good thing they were outside because they were HUGE.

Excerpts from a diary I wrote on a similar adventure (2.00 / 18)
Hope your visitor is caught soon. Someone linked below a diary I wrote, but here's the story copied from there in June 2010:

Last weekend in the wee hours Kidlet comes to me and announces, "There's a creepy ugly animal in my bathroom!" Ick, I'm thinking. A rodent. So I look in her bathroom and find...well, nothing except some (sorry, but the truth must be spoken) poo on the floor that looks like it might be from a cat. Except that all our cats are very diligent about where they do their business. But rodents leave pellets rather than that kind of poo, so it must be something bigger. Yay.

Now deep inside I'm screeching and clambering onto the nearest table, but outside I'm trying to remain the calm maternal influence. Not sure I'm achieving anything that could remotely be called calm, but I do manage to call all the critter control numbers in the phone book. Eventually I get a call back from the farthest away one, who comes anyway and searches the house for quite a while, finding...well, nothing. Unfortunately, I had cleaned up the poo before he saw it, so he gives us this look like, "Uh huh. Sure." I pay him and he leaves.

Monday morning at one AM, I hear a noise under the head of my bed. Lovely. So, being the brave soul that I am I call my fiance (user trs here on DK) and exclaim, in a dramatic whisper, "It's under the bed." Like he's gonna come from Illinois and catch it or something. He asks me (have I got a credibility problem here?) "are you sure it isn't one of the cats?" I look around, trying not to let my feet actually touch the floor as I search, but find...well, nothing.

Seriously, trs. We are not imagining this. There was poo.

I try, failing miserably, to go back to sleep. Then about 4 AM I hear great scampering and consternation. I throw the light switch and see our youngest cat Kallie excitedly prancing around the armoire swatting under it with her paw. Cue sound of very unhappy unknown critter. I shoo Kallie out of the bedroom while simultaneously making loud noises to scare whatever's under the armoire. Which effort succeeds, because a hideous little adolescent opossum scampers out and hightails it in the direction of my bathroom.

I slam the bathroom door, stuff a towel in the crack beneath, lay a heavy shelf from the armoire on top of the towel and climb onto the bed with my feet safely off the floor. I, the mighty hunter, have trapped the ferocious opossum.

Having no mercy, after calling the animal control guy I again awaken trs to shriek, "there's a possum in my bathroom!" Kidlet and I keep close watch over the blockaded bathroom door, knocking on the wall whenever our new pet (Kidlet has by this time named it John) begins scratching at it. Around 6:30 the animal control guy arrives and we proudly show him how we've captured the mighty beast. He goes in, brave soul, armed only with gloves and comes out moments later carrying poor John by the tail to a waiting cage in his truck.

The animal control guy looks around and locates what he believes to be the entrance; we block it temporarily awaiting trs' arrival next week for a permanent fix. Then he goes merrily on his way, half my life savings in hand.

For the record, until Kallie encountered it face to face none of the cats (we have three) ever showed the least concern that there was an opossum in the house. Even stranger, trs shows every sign of still planning to move down here next weekend and marry me a few weeks later. Is he nuts, or what?

Enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war.

great story! (2.00 / 13)
We've seen possums up close and personal in our woods. They weren't bothered by our presence at all, continuing doing whatever they were doing, didn't even scurry at our approach. I know they are God's creatures, but boy, are they ugly things!

We dodged a bullet here in central NJ. (2.00 / 20)
It is raining and 33 degrees here. Everyone north of us appears to have snow. I hate snow.

Yes. I prefer rain too...don't have to shovel rain. (2.00 / 18)

Mornin' Everyone! (2.00 / 21)
16 degrees with a high of 32 expected today. Expecting it to get windy this afternoon, so wind chill will be a factor.

Good morning... (2.00 / 18)
34°rees and raining here - which makes me happy, since if the temperature had gotten as low as predicted, I'd be out salting roads in our community for about 2 hours now. And, I'd forgotten to set up the coffeepot last night, so I would have been grumbling about that. However, Kidlet made coffee this morning (see, iriti, there is an advantage to Kidlet drinking coffee). So...

Good morning from a (2.00 / 20)

School is closed due to flooding. The French Broad River - which here our Douglas Lake - is at 12.5 feet above flood level.

Our 33,000 acre lake rose four feet in three days.

best thing about today, little o comes over for her midweek sleepover. YAY!

geez, i'm not sure my pooties and woozles would be quite as sanguine about a 'possum on the kitchen counter, i'm not sure i would be either, especially so close to the C O F F E E!

My bil's brother and spouse have just relocated from Anchorage (2.00 / 18)
to north Florida.  It took them 10 days (7 days just to get out of Alaska) to make the trip from Anchorage to Columbia.  Their travel plans required them to drive west toward Canada before boarding the ferry for a 4 day trip to Bellingham, WA.  They had scouted out a B&B for the second night on the road because it provided electric hookups for cars.  It was 50 below when they arrived with a drop of another 15 degrees forecast.  The promised heater was broken so they had to leave the car running all night.  I cannot fathom what being that cold is like.

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there's some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

31 degrees and the PNW morning sky is pinky blue.... (2.00 / 12)
This article in the Seattle Times re the concern Mental Health Professionals have re the new gun control proposals is interesting.

"Anytime you have one of these tragic case like Newtown, it's going to expose deficiencies in the mental-health system and provide some opportunity for reform," said Richard Bonnie, a professor of public policy at the University of Virginia's law school who led a state commission that overhauled policies after the 2007 Virginia Tech shootings that left 33 people dead. "But you have to be very careful not to overreact.

~snip~

One fundamental problem with looking for "warning signs" is that it's more art than science. People with serious mental disorders, while more likely to commit aggressive acts than the average person, account for only about 4 percent of violent crimes overall.

Spouse person picked the kiddo up from school early today because he was having a rough go of it and running a slight fever. Sooo tomorrow we go to the Dr's office for a flu swab. Makes sense, better to swab and make sure it is flu than to give him a shot when he doesn't need it. Not only because it's best for him, but the Dr's office is worried about running out of Tamiflu (?) shots. I'm hoping it's just a combination of a head cold and not being able to sleep well.

Have a couple of baby tutu's to make later this evening, I so enjoy doing that...Maybe one day I'll have a granddaughter...My oldest sons are being less than cooperative about the grandbaby thing!!!!
