BB Couture Ares.....and Baby Possums.

How has your Monday been? I sure had an interesting night, last night. About 12:30am I let the dogs out in the backyard one last time before bed. Well my lab spotted a possum in our yard, and took off after it. He picked it up in his mouth, and then put it down again. Thank goodness he didn't kill it. I got my dogs back up on our deck, and turned to see the possum run off. I kept hearing a really odd noise, so I went back to the spot, and saw three tiny baby possum's on the ground. :-( Now, I know lots of people just plain don't like possums. I, on the other hand, might possibly be one of the biggest animal lovers around. I can't stand to see any animal hurt in any way.

I absolutely couldn't leave those babies to die in my yard. I ran in the house to look online, to be certain that's what they were. It was. I grabbed some rubber gloves and a sweatshirt, ran back to the babies, and put them in the shirt. I took them in the house (to the laundry room)warmed up a rice bag and put that under the shirt to keep them warm. I had no idea what I was going to do with them. I called a 24 hr. emergency vet, and asked them what to do. Turns out they are part of Operation Wildlife as well, so they said they would take them. So, I put the rice bag,shirt, and babies in a shoebox, got in the car, and drove to the vet. They took them, and said they would take care of them until they were old enough to be released. Thank goodness! :-) I really hope the mom is okay, and that she had other babies with her. It makes me so sad that she lost her babies. :-( I read that they can have around 13 babies, so I'm hoping she still has some.

So that is my interesting story of the day. Pretty much everyone I know, says I should have gone to vet school. At one time, I really did want to be a vet. However, I just don't think I could take the bad stuff. I would really suffer. So, I try to do what I can when I can for animals. I always say, I was put on earth to care for animals. ;-)

Okay, I'll get to the polish now since this is a polish blog. ;-) This mani. is one I did a couple of weeks ago, and never got around to posting. It's one of the new Spring polishes, from the BB Couture for Men A Touch of Greece collection. It's called Ares. It's a smoky dark gray with lots of of silver micro shimmer. I LOVE this polish. I didn't have any problems with application, and I used two coats.

Here's a pic. of baby possums that look just like the babies I found last night. This isn't my pic. and I didn't take any, as I was just trying to make sure they would be okay. ;-)

I sure hope tonight isn't as eventful as last night! ;-)


  1. Oh, I'm glad you saved those tiny little babies...

  2. Biba...Thank you. :-) I know some people might think I'm crazy, but I just couldn't leave them. ;-)

  3. Bless you for taking those little possums to a vet. Love the sparkle in the grey polish. I haven't bought any of this collection yet. I've got to do it soon.

  4. Lucy...Thank you so much. I absolutely couldn't leave them there. The whole thing made me so sad. :-( I did what I could, and I hope they all are going to be okay.
