Ankeny, Iowa... Kansas City, Missouri... Possum Adventure, Lauri's house

Labor Day weekend, 2009... Friday we headed to Ankeny, Iowa to visit Bob's Aunt Alice. She's a hoot! Saturday we hopped over to Kansas City to spend a couple days with Bob's mom, staying overnight with Bob's sister Lauri. Lauri gave us a great "possum adventure"! We headed home late Monday.

  Annie, she's a cutie. Initially shy but warmed up to us within a couple hours. Penguins everywhere.

  As we arrived in Lee's Summit, MO and were tying down, this taxied out. Ford Tri-Motor It's HUGE, but it took off in what looked like 300 feet Turns out it's the same one that was owned by LeMaster in Bob's hometown of Ottawa KS. Margaret Smith, in critical care

  Hopefully she'll come back to Valley View soon, everyone misses her! Elsie and Ricco (sp?) We went down to Lauri's basement to see how a car tire valve stem works... and found this baby possum next to the tire. He was hissing but never even tried to bite. Lauri has had previous possum adventures and knows the babies don't bite.

  Momma and more babies are up there. Another baby is hiding behind the water heater - we can hear it hissing. Bob and baby. There's momma.

  Sue finally got up the courage to hold one. Man they're cute. They didn't wriggle or squirm at all. Lauri puts them back up with mom. Zach, Lauri's cockatiel

  Gorgeous huge spider Lauri's new 4-thread Serger sewing machine - with jet-air threading - pretty impressive!
