my fox-grapes

These grapes are mostly ripe,and the critters are having a delicious feast!
I could make wine again with these,but I feel like they are really for all my animal friends.The other night I talked to an opossum for about twenty minutes,as he ate the grapes.It reminded me of when my Grandfather was cleaning a wild duck for dinner.He sang to me,"opossum up a 'simmon'(persimmon)tree,racoon on the ground,racoon said you son-of-a-gun,you shake some simmons down!"
From "Bile them cabbage down",an old folk song.
