Looks like Creeping Cucumber (Melothria pendula).

I'm thinking CAROLINA MOONSEED (Cocculus carolinus)

Too weedy for my tastes...

I think you might be right, stone. The leaves and growth form look to be a little better match. Don't know why I missed that, since I have Carolina Snailseed in a pot, in the front yard.

Might be cocculus, but doesn't look exactly like the pictures. It will have to get bigger to be sure.
Thanks so far.....
