Sa ---Sa---SA - SNAKE!!!!!!!!!

I went on an evening hike with my pool man a/k/a 'tilla boy's dad last night. He had found a cool skeleton and I wanted to photograph it. We never found the skeleton but Tilla, Mabel and I all walked within inches of this guy - oblivious!!!

The pool man saw it and told me it was a king snake. I'm of the mind that the only good snake is a dead snake! ICK!!!

I don't like snakes either, but if they have any redeeming qualities, it might be that they try their best to stay away from people's habitats. Rats, mice, and roaches, on the other hand, would invade our homes without a second thought if we'd let them.

miss creekhiker,
EEEEK! we don't like snakes either!!
mama's got that saying about king snakes (safe!) vs. coral snakes (not safe!) going through her head now -- "red and black, friend of jack; red and yellow, kill a fellow!". anywho, we're glad ya'll are a-okay!
*woof*
