We have had a new visitor to our food bowl of late. This rather brazen possum has been a regular for the last several afternoons. That's right, he doesn't wait until cover of darkness. Since we live near the river, we do get the occasional skunk or possum. The above photo doesn't give much of a sense of his girth. To give you some perspective, our largest cat is 13 pounds, and this possum is larger. Yep. The wildlife of Ark City!
Our church is hosting a lot of fun activities during the Christmas season. Caroling is on tap for 7 p.m. this Wednesday, weather permitting. Missionary Baptist Church always visits all the area nursing homes to bring a little Christmas cheer. Cookies and hot chocolate will be served at the church following the singing. On Sunday, 12/13/09, after morning worship, a holiday potluck dinner will be served.
The perfect ending to this special Christmas season is our Youth Christmas Program, at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, 12/20/09. We have the best and brightest actors, singers and musicians from Ark City High School and Cowley College presenting a play based on the Nativity story. Make sure to mark your calendars, these events will be a blessing to you.
Happy Birthday to my nephew, Nick Wiley, of Springfield MO! Have a great one, buddy!
Exercise Update: I did four aerobic workouts and four sets of hand-weight calisthenics last week. The doctor said I indeed had a pain in my neck and prescribed a mild muscle relaxant. I'll keep you posted.
