Be careful of what you ask for......

Wouldn't you love to find this as you walk outside your basement door !! I stopped in my tracks and had a ridiculous " Oh my god !" moment. My kids and I watched from the window calling daddy to see when he would get home and what to do. My husband just so happens to have a friend who is very well versed in the snake world ( can you imagine !) , so he is stopping by after work. My littlest says" Mommy we were having such a great day and now this ...." . Hopefully my fear stricken reaction will not permanently effect him ( I hate snakes.... I just do ). My older son had a very Indiana Jones reaction and said " Get a sword or a big Knife!!" , neither available to his dismay. I know that snakes are good , and we should not fear them.... I just do not like them ( have I mentioned how much I do not like them!).

So my other thought....... my chipmunks that I complained about in early posts..... gone . I have not seen a one in days. I fear that the answer to the chipmunk problem is a big snake!!! How do I rid my snake problem???? Any thoughts? I leave you with this, Be careful of what you ask for. You may get what you want , but not in the way you would like!!!

Talk to you soon,

Courtney

my brother studied reptiles in college ..... we always had pet snakes growing up ... they aren't so bad... i don't mind them at all.... wish you were my neighbor, i'd have come and saved you ...... my best tool for snake catching is a pillow case .....
