Ok..I don't know whas up but today was a day of snakes!
First I see on FB about a restaurant that has snakes to keep you company as you dine..My
GD would LOVE that..the girl is crazy about snakes...or just crazy??
Then I am letting pups in and out, look down the hallway and there is a "chew toy" ..only it is nearly gone it is so skinny..then it MOVED!! We had a tiny lil Bull Snake in our hallway!
He is safely now outside to grow, catch mice and keep rattlers away ..OUTSIDE!! I have no idea how he got in..that I will be looking into!
Then this PM as I was closing up my chickens , geese and all . My young hens would not go into their house. I looked and there was a BIG Bull Snake in there. Well being the brave country girl that I am..I speed dialed my son to come over and get the snake!! He was over here in a few minutes and the struggle began. Snake did not want to come out..tried to go under the wall into the chicken house...then when Gene grabbed him ..he latched his tail around the roost and nearly pulled it down. As Gene was getting the tail loose he wrapped around Gene's arm..which is ok...keeps him from dropping off! long as it is Gene's arm!!
Finally got him over the fence into the other pasture and he wriggled off ..I am sure grumbling about dern humans!!
Then the gals did not wanna go in there. First chickens cannot see in the dark..and second..last thing they saw in there was a big ole SNAKE!! Between Gene & I we herded them in and got the door closed.
No end to the excitement around here!!
Another blistering hot day..hopefully this will be our week of hot that we get and not the new trend for summer!! I am daily thankful for A/C ..how did folks deal with this before there was A/C!!
Now headed to tuck in ..and store up energy for another adventure in country living!!
Tomorrow, as Scarlett said, Is another day! My add on is who knows what it is going to bring!
Good nite ya'al...
