Besides the house vermin – Seadrift, Verminella [I got to name that one], and Spare Cat – we get nature's own vermin who show up at the food bank that runs on our front porch. We caught this one the other night. He just scuttled up the trellis and then froze at the top. No, there's not a little possum skeleton bleaching up there. It finally went off while we were out walking. An old guy used to distribute papers on press day when we printed the Stilwell, Okla., Democrat-Journal was named Poss Waters. I'd bet nobody has thought of him in 25 years until I just did.
