A Note About Our Possum Lady
This last fall (2020), we printed a new run of merchandise featuring the image of a possum, hanging upside down, with a wrench in one paw. (Do you call it a paw? Is it a hand?) You may have seen this image in other locations around town, such as the back parking lot of Cottin’s Hardware. The original possum art is the work of ELNA Board member and local artist Dave Loewenstein, and has been reproduced with his permission. We have Pride of Gumbo printing, at LFK Press on E8th St, to thank for printing the tees!
Here’s what we know about the possum lady:
Our Lady Possum, is definitely a lady, for reasons unexplained. She’s handy and unafraid of work, as evidenced by the wrench she carries. Got a clog? Possum Lady can probably fix it. Because she is an East Lawrence resident, we can presume that Our Lady Possum is in fact an Opossum, the only New World marsupial, and a distinct animal from the Australian Possum, which is more closely related to a kangaroo. But the “O” is silent ‘round these parts. A rare and beautiful, mostly nocturnal creature who eats ticks and can’t get rabies, she can be fiercely protective of her territory and her young. Like a true East Lawrencian, she’s also a bit of a scavenger. Never one to judge, Possum Lady says “in east lawrence, you’re okay.”
