Just to explain the long interval between posts.
About a week ago I felt a bit off, headachey, but I had just driven through Melbourne peak hour traffic, so was not too concerned.
But the next day my head was going to explode, my chest ached, my skin was painful, and I was experiencing chills and sweats. That has all continued. I assume it is a viral infection, but it is taking longer than usual to start resolving. And now I have started persistent coughing. Might have to see the quack.
So I have not been in the workshop for a week. And I am getting a bit bored.
No, they do not have names. But they do come down when my wife calls “possum, possum”.
We have encouraged this family for many of their generations by not frightening them, and feeding them. Possums live in many Australian roof spaces. They are difficult to keep out, and it is illegal to remove them further than the confines of the property. So trapping and removal is usually temporary.
They entertain us, and visitors. Never cause bother. Well, almost never… they found a way into our pantry once, and raided every open packet of cereal, raisins, etc., throwing the unwanted packages onto the floor. We just looked at the mess and laughed.
