Playing Possum

posted 18 Jan 2012, 20:44 by Sandra Kirby
Interesting article in news today about the New York subway that had to be evacuated when a possum was discovered in a carriage.  apparently rats, mce and pigeons are frequent subway riders but this was the first possum - and it didn't want to get off!
 
Train guards went to send it off - but possum bared it's teeth so "wildlife experts" were called in.
 
Wonder how much time that all took and how various passengers reacted to the delays - can only imagine that it wouldn't ahve gone down well in Wellington or London.
 
Maybe in London people are more resigned to delays - especially on the circle line!
 
Less energetic day today being back at work not climbing hills aka mountains on Kapiti.
Tonight we are going out to dinnner at a Malasian steamboat restaurant in Petone - should be fun.
Tomorrow Tony heads down to Chch for the long weekend.
Take care
Love
Sandra/Mum
