I was recently told about burying dead critters in the compost on Permies.com.   So...  when I came upon some freshly killed roadkill, I quickly pulled over, grabbed a shovel in the truck and put the possum in the truck bed.

Now, I have long noticed that city people and tourists believe almost any wild story about rural country folk and Appalachians in particular.   I live in Maryland near Jennings-Randolph Dam in which attracts some tourists.   So I was not too surprised to see that there was a car stopped behind me with Florida plates watching me snag the possum.  The occupants were two older people who were staring at me with a shocked look on their faces.  I couldn't resist licking and smacking my lips and rubbing my belly before I climbed back into my truck.

They looked positively green as they passed me.   I couldn't drive for a few minutes because I was laughing so hard that I was crying.
Always look on the bright side of life. At least this ad is really tiny:
I'm going to build a sauna trailer and document the entire process in video and ebook form!
