possums and postcards.

Yesterday I received a postcard in the mail from my dear precious sister Miranda who is currently living in Indiana at a horse ranch working and learning dressage. I was so excited to: 1.) be getting mail {I LOVE snail mail!} and 2.) be hearing from my sister who I miss. But little did I know the terror that awaited me.

As you can see, the front of the postcard has an opossum on it. If you did not know this about me already, I will let you in on a little secret...I am terrified of opossums. I have literally had nightmares of them chewing on my neck {I blame this fear on watching The Princess Bride one too many times as a kid...opossums really do resemble R.O.U.S's.}

My sister thinks she's just so funny.

I happen to have quite the collection of possum postcards from family members who find my fear to be quite entertaining.

Also, I am quite curious as to why postcard companies choose possums to be the cover of many of their products?!

Terrifying possum aside, it was great to hear from my little sis. I miss her greatly.
