A Sure Footed Journey and Critters

Where are we going today Mom?

Thoughts from a tire, or three.

There was a day when I went round and round and round but now-

There are always choices in life.

"Free your mind and be in flow of life's ups and downs
Be accepting of wherever you are on your journey."
Karron Waddell

Welcome to

Unexpected moments
can be silly and strange, 
but so worthy to share.

Well, just goes to show, not all opossums stay out of trouble.
See baby opossum found in the strangest of places here.
This is a true story- I read it in the paper, before seeing it on the web!

Be careful where you tread little one.

Officer Snodgrass and his latest apprehension.
Oops! Gotcha!

"The journey transforms the destination."

Peter Morville

"An expert is one who knows more and more
 about less and less
until he knows absolutely everything 
about nothing."
Nicholas Murray Butler

"There are no rules of architecture
 for a castle in the clouds."
G.K. Chesterton

"Life is not what you alone make it.
Life is the input of everyone who touched your life
and every experience that entered it.
We are all part of one another."
Yuri Kochiyama

"Life is far too important a thing 
ever to talk seriously about."
Oscar Wilde

Wherever your journey takes you today enjoy and be safe.

Hello, wonderful post and quotes. The Opossums photos are great, the one in the toilet is crazy. I like the tire critter and your sweet dog. I am glad you are sharing your moments and critters. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

not a fan of possums around here as they carry a disease that can be fatal to horses, but they're cool creatures. love the tree against the sky.

My oldest daughter raised a 'possum baby on a bottle. People were surprised when they came in and Herman hissed at them. Good watch 'possum.

Great post and wonderful quotes.

I am so glad that the possum (and its sibling) were saved.

Those tires are perfect!
I love possums. They are shy little creatures that put a lot of people off because they just aren't that cute (when they are grown). One of my wild life rehab buddies had one who became best friends with her dog.
Have a great one.

Looks like someone enjoys going for a ride. It would be rather a shock to find a possum in your toilet & I really like the Officer Snodgrass & the Possum photo.


Another very clever and entertaining post!
The tire critter and its commentary...what a hoot.

Love the doggie, where did you actually go today Mom?

Excellent images. Pretty tree shot.

I have a thing for opossums (and even live on a road called "Crazy Possum")

Cute car dog, Karen!

Theda happily hopped into the car about an hour ago.

To her vast disappointment, we went to the dog groomer (Petsmart) and not to the place in West Virginia.
