Morning, Vagabonds!Actually, it was just a little one. Don’t know what it was. Maybe a foot or a foot and a half long. Pink, with these diamond shaped patterns on it. I was cleaning up the yard at the house I’m remodeling. The previous owners left their wooden fence in a huge pile of rotten lumber on the property line. I lifted a board and there it was, all curled up and taking a nap. But on closer inspection, I saw it was probably awake. I sent my wife back to the parsonage to get my ax. I have found over the years that an ax works best. Then I stayed there and watched it. I figured if it moved, I would hack it with my machete. When wife got back I severed its head from its body. Not a real exciting story, I’ll admit. Would y’all like to hear the story of how I killed 13 snakes in my yard in one year? That was the same year as the alligator.I appreciate Slim’s story of how he doesn’t bother them if they don’t bother him. That’s the way I feel when I’m out camping or whatever. But when they come into our territory, I consider them the invaders and I feel like home owners need to protect their property and their family members.
