    So who all here is going to be able to go with me to the annual "Possum Drop" held every New Years Eve in Tallapoosa, Ga.?? :cool::D

    Tallapoosa was originally named Possum Snout after a Creek Indian Chief. When the region officially became a city in 1860 the name was changed to its current, more dignified moniker, an Indian word for "Golden River." But since you can't drop a Tallapoosa, the city chose to drop a opossum on New Year's Eve instead. No need to alert PETA :p - though once a living, breathing critter, the marsupial is no longer with us; he lives on.... thanks to local taxidermy and museum curator Bud Jones. In addition to the drop, expect live entertainment, food venders and fireworks, all followed by a "Possum Snout Breakfast," which I hope isn't what it sounds like. :D

    Ok, who's up for this one...:thumbsup:

    Oh man, Rob. Sure wished I lived closer. New Year's Possum Drop sounds like just the way that a Red-Neck East Texas Piney Woods lady would love to celebrate the New Year. :lolup: Instead I will take my lawn chair, blankets, and beer down to the boatramp and watch everyone else pop firecrackers.

    Whoopee!!!!!!!!!!

    I wouldn't think so, but, please, do tell when you find out!! I too wish I lived closer, sounds like a great Ny bash. I would never eat a possum, snout or otherwise, probably just called that and it's probably some other kind of meat. Not sure what I am doing for the NY, I actually haven't whooped it up in so long, can't remember what it's like and if i do, I know I will suffer for days and days with a hangover as I haven't had a drop in a while. Cheap date for sure! Would only take me a couple glasses of wine to get me there! Anyway, have a good one and let us know how it went!! After you get your pickle juice in ya and all! ;)
    Happy New Year Robwin!
