In the interest of making this blog a springboard for a best-selling book, I suggested to Teri that we get a pet opossum. She was not amused. They're ugly and they stink, she said. But what about the young woman photographer who raised a coyote in the heart of Wyoming sheep country and lived to blog about it, I pleaded. She wrote 'The Daily Coyote' book and is probably right now basking in the glory in some villa in Tuscany. No way, no who, no how, the Wonder Woman said, putting her foot down right on top of my arch. So it looks as if the opossums of the world will have to fend for themselves in the cruel streets of nature.
