An Unexplained (Google) Phenomenon

I'm a great fan of Google's holiday and special event logos but today's is creating lots of comment because no one knows why they put it up.

Best of all are the comments and conjectures - click on the title to read them or google it yourself!
(Google has no better explanation on their Google-Logos blog.)

My Possum Friend . . .

. . . is becoming less timid. I've been leaving out apple or banana slices for this little guy every night for months.

The nice thing about this guy - besides keeping the snail and slug population down - is that I often find a nice-sized avocado left on the ground for us many mornings when our tree is in season!
