Possum Party

There was a possum party here last night, and I'm a bit miffed I didn't get an invitation!  The room I'm in is an addition to the house, so my room has a flat, tin-like roof; whereas the rest of the house has a steep roof and isn't conducive to a possum party.  The first night I spent here the possums visited and it was rather noisy, I could hear them scrambling around on top of the roof and it sounded like they were right on top of me.  Last night, from what I can tell a fight broke out.  Isn't that what usually happens at these types of parties?  The hissing and screeching was incredibly loud, and unfortunately, lasted most of the night.  So instead of Jordan's barking keeping me awake it was the possums.... So either the possums blocked out the noise of her barking or she finally kept quiet.  I couldn't make this stuff up.

Well, it was a pretty lazy day here.  I tried to take a nap, but that didn't work very well.  I did go into town to visit the Gawler Information Center.  The woman wasn't all that helpful, all she did was hand me a ton of different brochures.  She was really nice, but I guess brochures wasn't what I had in mind in terms of what to do around town.  So, now I've got a stack of reading material to wade through in hopes I can find some things to do.  I did get an Aussie/Aborigine move called Bran Nue Dae from the library and it was a funny little musical.  I think I might go to a farmers market and then stop at some other sites on the drive back.  They're working on the water pipes on our road tomorrow too, so with no water I might as well go somewhere.


  1. Here is your fathers suggestions: Take a ladder and put it up to the roof. The next time they have a party, take a flashlight and go up and join. He said it could be raccoon's and you won't know for sure until you check it out. While you're up there, tell them you want an invite to the next part-tay! :)
