Furry Creatures Chapter 3

“Too many broken hearts have fallen in the river
Too many lonely souls have drifted out to sea
You lay your bets and then you pay the price
The things we do for love, the things we do for love”

This song, “The Thing We Do For Love” was playing at the Long John Silver’s when I broke the news to Roy about teaching the opossums to climb. I wanted to do it right. I wanted to let them go with all the skills that they would need to survive on their own.


“Communication is the problem to the answer
You've got her number and your hand is on the phone
The weather's turned and all the lines are down
The things we do for love, the things we do for love”



“I need for you to build me a pen to keep Bill and Pattie in until we let them go.” I was being reasonable. I didn’t stomp my foot and pout!
“You want what? Where?”
“Around the small pecan tree, so they can climb.”


"Like walking in the rain and the snow when there's nowhere to go
When you're feeling like a part of you is dying
And you're looking for the answer in her eyes
You think you're gonna break up
Then she says she wants to make up."



Roy said, “ I can’t believe I am going to do this. Do you know how much this goes against everything I stand for.”
“Yes, I do and I appreciate the sacrifice.”


And since I put a stop to killing all furry creatures, he has been going nuts!! He came into the bedroom one night to get the 12 gauge.
“What are you doing?”
“I am making my rounds.”
“Well, remember you are not allowed to shoot furry things.”
“I am taking the gun in case there are strangers or the boogie man.”
“Okay, have fun!”

"Ooh you made me love you
Ooh you've got a way
Ooh you had me crawling on the floor"


So the pen was built around the base of the pecan tree, I loaded up Bill and Pattie to take home. Bill was not thrilled in the least to put in a car! He growled all the way, I tried to drown him out with Metallica. That just made him madder.

We put them in the pen and up that tree Bill went and Pattie burrowed. Bill wanted out!! Pattie just wanted to hide!
Roy reached up in the tree to get Bill.

Oooooh, you should have heard all the cussin’!! Bill was so pissed off , he bit Roy and Roy started cussin’.

Roy was wearing gloves but it still smart. “Nadine, I don’t know why You do these things!!”


"The things we do for love, the things we do for love


The things we do for love, the things we do for love


The things we do for love, the things we do for love"
