55 - Opossums and Voodoo


At first glance it seemed like a nice place - a quiet pavilion by the water, a place to rest on a hot summer day. It was ideal until she noticed the dead chicken and the furtive scurrying of gray furry creatures.













She wondered what it meant, but then noticed the sign, which explained everything.

Possoms are a creepy prehistoric creature. Their toothy grin gives me chills. They mix well with VooDoo!

@Alice: I took the pix in Austin, where the local motto is "Keep Austin weird," so make of it what you will.
