Possums, Armadillos and Coons OH MY!

On days like today, I realize why I have always said I am a city girl. Nothing Country about me!

Well, I guess there is the fact that I love boots and western clothes……… Which by the way have come a LONG way over the years of my life.  But, its bad….. And very sad when Your husband, The one raised in The city of Houston his whole life, Is more country than you!

Now, I was born in Houston, and have always had a love of smog, traffic, shopping, malls, museums, night life, and you get the point there.  We went down almost every weekend growing up, and for certain every holiday. It was always where I swore I would of ended up living.

But, Instead I am here.  In the small city of Crockett.  The city that seems to always suck you back in no matter how hard, how much or how often you try to get away.  And it is here, that since I have been with my sweet husband Keith, That I have seen and been closer to the following;

Possums,

Raccoons,

Snakes,

and the never live down how I responded on face book…………….

Armadillos.

And I promise in my now 29 years of life, I was never ever this close to any of those until meeting and Marrying Keith.

How can this be? I have lived here in this town for about 26 years.  Is it that I moved on the opposite side of town? Is it Karma for marrying Keith? BAW HA HA. I know that’s silly but I really do wonder at times. Now would I hunt something on my own free will?  Oh yes I think I might try.  I can shoot a gun. Well that was also at a non moving target. But I was very precise in my actions with it. Perfect aim, And that was the first, last, and Only time I have ever pointed to shoot a gun!

Now Looking back at the Armadillos, Which for those of you who don’t know, If it’s a state animal of any sort, it is then forbidden to kill. Illegal even! But These critters keep coming to my porch, on my property. They were a lil family, Which Thanks be to God, had an untimely Death, Seems it was totally 100% of natural causes!  But for many days and Nights I couldn’t, wouldn’t, leave the house.  How can I bring up two amazing little boys when I am scared of such critters?

This is when I realize that I am very grateful for the husband that I have and that he is here to raise these children with me.  For if he wasn’t? I’m very afraid we would have some very sissified mommas boys here.

 

I know I might be rambling a bit, But my hands are still shaky from the thoughts of the Coon, who I know is sitting there in that tree still. Waiting. JUST WAITING………………. probably to get my pumpkins………….  Which just adds to the terror of thinking and knowing I will have nightmares after tonight.

Well, Its getting late and This Twinkie Mami, has a huge garage sale she is starting, tomorrow morning. Which I have been preparing for mentally and physically for about 4 weeks now.

Thought for the night…………………….

If you were to teach your children 5 things in life……….. Just 5……….. That they remember and live by forever. What would they be. (5 for the reason that its October 5th still and its kind of  nice number)

Sweet dreams to you all. And God bless!

In His Wonderful Grace,

Jessa
