There was a mule named “Possum”.  It would take Evalyn from Sunny Slope Farm to school in Denton Valley.  There, Possum would patiently wait to take her home at the end of the day.

One day, Possum had his own idea and ended up throwing Ev into the bayou where she got good and wet.

If you are looking for Sunny Slope Farm, just take FM 604 South about 7 miles or so and there it is.  You’ll know it by the sunny slope of the farmland.
