It’s rare for us to see opossums at night on the west side, but I saw Momma Opossum this morning walking along our fence with her four little ones. Poor things. I know they are not the prettiest of creatures, but you have to feel for single mom here, trying to find a place to camp for the day. It was waaaaaay past everyone’s bedtime (8am this morning). I guess they got scared off by some other critter and had to move. I just hope she found a warm comfy spot to curl up with the little ones.

My first instinct was to call Will Campbell — LA’s very own St. Francis.
