“There was this big possum on the side of the road. He wasn’t hurt at all, except he was dead." New Year’s Eve in Times Square? Meh. The real action is in Tallapoosa, Georgia. That’s where Bud and Jackie Jones, career taxidermists, live. They helped establish a completely different kind of New Year’s Eve tradition in their small town. Bud and Jackie came to StoryCorps recently to share the love story that helped launch it all. Originally aired December 28, 2018, on NPR’s Morning Edition.
