So, last night I'm on the run trying to fit 100 things into 99 minutes worth. I learned that trick from my mom! I open the garage door and load the passenger seat with all the things I need to do, part of a meal into a friend, returning a paint tray, book for another friend, a thank you gift for someone else, well... you get the picture. I slam the door and start to head around the front of the car when what do I spy? Oh yes, a snake. Not just a little baby snake. A great big 4 foot king snake! Do you know why that snake is 4 feet? I'm sure it's the same king snake that was feasting on a gopher snake mentioned in a previous post.
Thankfully, snakey decided my retreat was a good time to retreat himself. When I came back out he was heading into the nearest gopher hole. My husband was thrilled because he knows that means less gophers. Me, not so thrilled because that means said snakey is still lurking somewhere in my front yard.
All day I have gingerly gotten into and out of the car always vigilant, always watchful. Do you think snakey is doing the same thing, watching out for the crazy redhead?
