Family Life at Humpty Doo
On Saturday, 19 December 1998, I spent my first night at my House at
Humpty Doo. It was great: so peaceful, no car noises, no loud youths! Only
my bed (airbed on floor!) was a little less than comfortable. We had a
big late evening storm, but the only thing I could hear of it, was the
water dripping off the roof and onto the veranda. There is enough insulation
in the roof, so that I can't hear the noise of the rain dropping onto the
corrugated iron roof.
Speaking of the roof, there is something else there. I seem to have
gained an instant family! There is a female possum with its "baby" in the
roof space. But they have been fed by the previous tenants. In the evening,
they come down the wall in the kitchen, looking for food. On the pictures
below, you can see them on my fridge, enjoying a bit of bread.
