Possum, Oh-possum and Another Monday Music Moves Me

Good Monday to ya and welcome to another 
Monday Music Moves Me.
This weeks theme is videos that feature celebrities.

Upon getting home from work this morning, this is what I found.....
Around here we have put the war on for whatever has put the war on our hens.
Of course, opossums are not uncommon but before we bring more chicks home, I'd like to give them a better chance of surviving. 
The ole man has worked on the foxes but for as many as we were seeing I was sure there was more to get rid of but because they are so smart and quickly adaptable I thought I'd try setting a trap out by the chicken coop and see if I could get lucky.
Oh lucky, not fox but this nasty mama opossum. I had really forgotten that they keep their babies in a pouch. I wish I had captured a picture when all those little legs and curly tail where sticking out but she has tucked those babies away.
So help me, I'd better not get anybody teary comments for this nasty creature.
She has gone from being calm and still to getting viscous and fangy
and ...
She stinks!
Now I've got to figure out what to do with it.
I'm thinking I'm going to wait until the ole man gets home.
shew 'ew...
Let's get to the music please.....

I guess we're goin' Redneck Crazy with Tyler Farr and our redneck celebrities from 
Duck Dynasty.
These young 'ens around here can't get enough of those nuts down there in West Monroe 
so let's hear Darius Rucker performing Wagon Wheel.
The next song on this is 1994 by Jason Aldean. 
There's a lot of  country celebrities but it also features Hayden Panettiere.
Lucas Till is our next celebrity being featured in Taylor Swift's You Belong to Me.
How about a throwback from Dolly Parton. Everybody's a star in this one.
Let's end this musical fun with these sorry son's a...

Thanks so much for stopping by.


  1. Oh, my gosh that possum would freak me out, good luck getting rid of it. We had issues with squirrels and they did some serious damage inside my home,critters are still critters and when they get inside a home,no fun.
    Love 9 to 5,song and movie!! Enjoyed all your other picks and they were new to me, really liked 1994, Oh, wait, I knew Taylor Swift's song.
    Have a good week :)

    1. OMG..the possum is now playing possum but all the babies are out looking about..crazy. Thanks for the visit.

  2. Whoa what a catch!
    I loved the 9 to 5 and O Brother Where Art THough.
    Great picks all around.
    Thanks for playing!

  3. I remember watching Brother where art thou

    And I do love that song by Dolly. Very nice list

    And that possum in the cage reminds me of when I was in my country and used to catch mangoose so they would not eat all our chickens.

    Thanks for rocking.

    Have a blessed week.

    1. Chicken draw so many creatures. Thanks for visiting. Have a great week!

  4. Boy, you really gave this one some thought didn't you! I haven't heard some of these in like forever! You're definitely rockin' the house today Girlfriend! Thanks for joining us, and shakin' that thang!!! woo hoo Hope to see you next week too! Hugs.

    1. daughter was full of suggestions with these. She was like hanging over my shoulder but she kept spitting out suggestion. 4M's is always fun for me. Thanks for visiting.

  5. O' Brother Where Art Thous is such a funny, fun movie. When it first came out, I didn't think I'd be interested in until my BIL told us how good it was. George Clooney is fabulous in it. Oh, 9 to 5 what a way to make a living! That was so popular in the 80s. Dolly seems like such a fun lady. I'd love to meet her one day. Taylor Swift is a cutie-pie isn't she? The other music videos rocked, too. Thanks for joining us on the dance floor at Monday's Music Moves Me, friend!

    1. I am a Dolly fan but my daughter(16yrs old) is a crazy Dolly fan. She's very upset she hasn't met her at Dollywood and was so mad with my oldest for going and not visiting "the Coat of Many Colors". Have a blessed week!

  6. Some were new to me.....but I cannot believe I forgot the Soggy Bottom Boys!! such a great movie and I love, love George Clooney in that video. He just has such fun with it. fantastic pics!
    And you won't get any "aw don't hurt the poor wee animal" comments from me. I grew up on a farm and we had chickens. I know they ain't always cute critters.

    1. I'm so glad you enjoyed these picks. They all fallow the country or bluegrass theme; some folks just don't like it. We loved "O! Brother Where Art Thou" in this house. I found it so comical because a lot of the characters in the movie reminded me of people I really knew.

      A lot of folks don't get the reality of the animal

      Hope your having an awesome week!

  7. We had a baby opossum growing up. The mom died and my parents saved the baby.
    The country songs were new to me. Love George Clooney!

    1. That's interesting. My cousin did the same thing; I'm not sure if they have them now. Thanks for the visit.

  8. I'd definitely let the ole man take care of that! Loved all the picks except for Taylor.....not a huge fan. I have been loving the redneck crazy song for a few weeks now since I first heard it. Love ya!
