    Ever notice how many B’days come along in Sept. and Oct,?,
    Myself and two of my three brothers are within a week of each other 9/8, 9/10, 9/15. I asked my mom about it years ago, and I still smile when I remember what she said.
    “Honey, it get pretty cold in the winter.”
    Makes sense?

    I’m on my way up to my Lady of the Hills later this week for her birthday. Xmas/New Year might have a bit to do with it, too. All that celebrating, enhanced with a bit of liquid?

    Good morning, Villagers. Yes, Slim, both of my sisters and our father were born in September.

    But come to think of it, when I was a kid at camp, there were so many many more kids born in Springtime that we had to be organized by month, while the kids born the rest of the year were organized by season.

    Almost done reading my Nat’l Geos.

    Morning, Vagabonds!
    Worked in the yard yesterday cutting back all the brush on the perimeter of the property and then took a load of junk to the county dump. Probably do the same today. Meanwhile the sheetrock workers are still hard at work inside the house. Another rather interesting side note – I had to call time out yesterday to kill a snake. Hope I don’t meet any today.

    Snakes………………ugh! We had lots of rattler’s in California. Haven’t met a single one up here, yet.

    Spent a bunch of time yesterday taking out the seeds and membranes of about 100 jalapeno peppers. Then I chopped them up in the food processor, put them by spoonfulls onto parchment paper on a cookie sheet, and froze them. That should keep us in salsa for a while. :)))

    Watched a very good movie last night……..“John Carter”. Jan, you probably have already seen it……..a very good adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough’s John Carter of Mars. It came out on the book’s 100th anniversary.

    Good morning Vagabonds.

    No, Rita, I haven’t seen “John Carter”. It was so universally panned that we decided not to. If you recommend it, then we will give it a try.

    As for snakes, I watched a “Dirty Jobs Down Under” show the other day where the host, Mike Rowe helped capture brown snakes in Adelaide, Australia. They are the second deadliest snake on the planet. If bitten a human has approximately 14 minutes to live. They are all over that city, in homes, swimming pools, gardens, etc. The kicker is that when they are captured, by Australian law, they cannot be killed because they are considered endangered. They have to be released back into the wild. Crazy world we live in.

    As you may remember from my previous posts I grew up on a farm in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains in East Tennessee. I had many encounters with snakes during that time. Three of America’s four poisonous snakes were plentiful … and very active. Copperheads were the most dangerous because they seemed to be the most plentiful and they became very angry when disturbed. The man who owned the farm that bordered one side of my father’s farm almost died from a copperhead bite he received while clearing away junk from a barn lot. He survived but lost use of his right arm.

    Saw a lot of rattlesnakes when I was up in the hills prospecting. Never really had any issues with them. Often as not, I saw them before they saw me. Been really close to one a few times. If they were on the move, I’d talk to them. It let them know where I was, and usually they wouldn’t even rattle. I’d wait for them to go on their way, then I’d go on mine.
    The one place I chased them away from was my camp site.
    Either they left. or….. Didn’t like to kill them. I was the intruder in their home territory, and I tried to honor that.
    As for close? Two memorable occasions. One was when I poked my head up over the edge of a small ledge to see is there was anything interesting there. Only thing was a young rattler not much more than a foot long. I got down very quickly.
    The other interesting occurance was when I was sitting on one side of a depression, about 18 inches or so wide, the bottom of it sandy, reading. every once in a while I’d raise head up to look around, then go back to my book. I had not seen any movement but, a few inches from my bare foot was a rattlesnake stretched out on the sand in the shade. I talked to him, don.t know what I said, as I slowloy drew my feet up. The snake never moved as I stood up and walked away. Since he was very close to my camp site, I went and got my hiking staff and, talking all the time. I gently guided him well away from camp.
    It never shook it’s tail and rattled as I did that.

    Interesting story, Slim. I enjoyed reading that. I’m tired right now, after a busy day. Maybe I’ll tell my snake story tomorrow.
