    how disappointing for the other readers thinking it was a cell phone set to vibrate (how surprising that Phil is also ophidiophobic).

    BRAVO, mission accomplished.

    If I remember correctly Andy is supposed to be Wally’s nephew. His parents didn’t want to spend time to raise him and he ended up with his uncle’s family. It makes it more believable that he wouldn’t be there for the trip (spending some of his summer vacation visiting his actual parents).

    And Holly and her BFF taking turns calling each other and not answering?

    Fortunately, this is Stone Soup, not Luann.

    Uh, someone should get that snake away from Max before something bad happens and SOON!

    Trust Max to be the little brat to bring it back to the camp after it was freed. Joan needs to exercize some harsher discipline that sticks to his gnat-like memory-banks. Yeesh!

    I work in a manufacturing facility at the edge of the metro Phoenix area. We get snakes inside regularly. It’s amazing how many men are afraid of snakes. They just don’t admit it in public. Poor Phil – outted in front of his girlfriend!

    @TBBB is right. But note that even though Andy and Max look alike, they are NOT related by blood, since Wally is Max’s stepfather, not the biological one.

    True Buffalo Bulls is right. Andy’s mom is Wally’s sister. They are very well off, but tend to give Andy cash instead of time. He once told Holly that his parents were going to a ski resort, but he’d rather stay home with “nerdy, low tech and always home” Uncle Wally; vs his mom would be on her lap top and his dad on the blackberry ; always too busy for him.

    I don’t know many people – men or women – who are NOT afraid of snakes. I know that some people actually like them. I personally do not.
