Tuesday Treasure

My Treasure this Tuesday is very special. This is Possie.Possie is a puppet that my Gran gave to me when I was about 3. I can't remember not being without him, and as you can see, he's a much loved little guy, with missing and matted fur, one of his eyes lost and his lining coming undone. Possie I think was meant to be a mouse, but I always thought he was a Possum, so I called him that. My best friend of 15 years still remembers him from our primary school days! I used to go around talking to him, and having him talk back to me in his little voice, and I would pick gum leaves and gum nuts and mix them with water and then put it in containers in the freezer as "Possie food"!I learnt a few years back that my Gran has one too, and hers doesn't have matted or missing fur or an eye, but is kept special for children's stories at church. Seeing hers with perfect coat and eyes, I appreciate and love my little guy all the more. He lives on my bed post, and I often get him down for a cuddle when I'm feeling blue. A cuddle from him can brighten the stormiest of days!
