Tattoo — 'The Bass Pro Possum'

It was awful. The sounds coming from our back deck made my skin crawl.It was about 5:45 p.m. on Thanksgiving. Everybody that was at my house, a.k.a, “The Jody Ray Sports Complex,” for dinner just had left. We just got done cleaning up, and my wife, Jenny, my son, Jacques, and I were sitting on the couch, getting ready to get our game plan together for “Black Friday” shopping. All of the sudden, we heard this God-awful ruckus out in the back of our house. I grabbed a flashlight to investigate.There was a huge possum in the trash can. He was trying to eat everything. He stood there, and I looked him right in the eyes! He looked just like the little guy “Tattoo,” Mr. Roarke's assistant, on the television show, “Fantasy Island.” He was just as tall, and had those little beady eyes, but just a longer nose.Go Pokes, beat Baylor.Save the world — recycle.God bless our troops and veterans.Have a great weekend.• • •Any questions or pictures, make contact with Jody Ray Adams on Facebook, on the “Jody Ray Fishing Hotline” at (918) 649-7387 or email to
