Yesterday I was digging around in the canning jars in my shed and look what what I found!
It gave me a start! Now,I am not one of those folks who are afraid of snakes...I am not an idiot either,I have a healthy respect for them.
But finding one unexpected always makes my heart skip a beat until my brain can register if it is poison or not! This one is a chicken snake! Usually we find giant ones in the chicken coop! This makes The Boy burst with happiness.
It usually goes something like,"Watch it Mom and don't let it get away! I got to go get my shot gun!"
That boy loves to shoot stuff...and blow up stuff...and well,you know...he's a boy!
We have a lot of problems with chicken snakes getting our eggs and baby chicks. I am not one of those, aww.. they have a right to be here too, people. If they stay in the woods they can have all the rights they want. When they come on my farm and eat my baby chicks,which takes food away from my family, that is an act of war and they must die.Yes,I know they eat mice...well,so does my weenie dog! Now,I don't really believe in killing for the sake of killing so I didn't waste him,noooo..I fed him to the chickens! Poetic justice I think!
