ENCOUNTERS WITH A SNAKE. . .

Today I saw my first snake. We've had a dozen or so killed on our property, but this is the first time I've actually been around to see one. I was pulling into our driveway, and there is was. A long black snake stretched out in the road.

Dead? I decided to check it out.

Lesson number one: Never assume a snake is dead. Even if it's lying in the middle of the road not moving.

I rolled down my window and it moved. I jumped. Then I decided to run over it. Sorry to all you animal lovers, but I don't like a poisonous snake in my yard. So I reversed, then pulled forward a couple times.

Lesson number two: Never assume you can run over a snake with your car.

It didn't work. My gardener went with my kids running behind them with hoes and pitchforks and me calling them back toward the house.

The snake has now been disposed of. One less poisonous snake for me to worry about.

I also saw a monkey outside my house this morning.

Since I don't have a picture of a snake, this picture is for you, Ronie!

Blessings,

Lisa
