A Sunday Visitor

Post by minniev » Wed Jun 20, 2018 10:16 pm

As my son and his girlfriend were leaving Sallis, she got all stuttery and her voice went up an octave: "there's something moving...long...hanging down...it's on the swing... I THINK ITS A SNAKE".

And it was. This fellow was huge. He's triple folded himself as he shimmied up the thick old chains that support my porch swing, apparently trying to gain purchase on the ceiling to rob the phoebe's nest. I chased him off with a broom and he went back under the house where he belongs, a hired killer who keeps the mice down.

If anyone can think of anything artistic I could do with him, say so, I found him very interesting and in an uncommon pose.

That's determination.

Does your son play the piccolo? PS could do wonders with a little snake charming on your porch.

Or maybe steal something from Stock. Matt
