We stop at the same place this adventure started, the 3-4 junction. I look at the clock and it is 1pm. I know I say it every time, but we really had a wonderful time with some really wonderful people. Mileage 884 :)
I have to add this last picture because you know I am crazy. At my store there has been this rogue shopping basket running around for over 6 months. I convinced my installers to put it in their pick up and drop it off at my house. Of course Chuck thinks I am totally crazy, but as you see, I have made very good use of it. Only thing better would be if I painted it pink or turquoise. I am sure one of these days I will get some spray paint and make that happen. :)
Last but not least, I was out watering the front yard, and was going to move my watering tractor, and as I stepped off the porch, I saw something grey in color....the tail of a snake....not a little snake, but a BIG snake. I ran into the house and got Chuck....he is scared to death of those things too, so we both just stand there looking at this tail...and can see this fat body wrapping around the water spigot. Chuck goes and gets the shot gun..Oh yes he did. But the way the snake was hiding, he couldn't get a good shot, but attempted anyway. The stupid thing moved just a little, but was still there. Called our next door neighbor and he comes over. He has a long metal stick, and he grabs the tail of the snake and throws him out on the yard. Now he has made the snake a bit unhappy. A few hits on the head, and then the spear through his head and all the excitement was over. That stupid thing was around 4' long...looked like he had been feasting on my toads. Roger takes his knife and open his mouth as the guy had a bit of a triangular head. Didn't see any fangs. We still have no idea what kind of snake it was, other than a dead one!!! Probably weighed around 5 lbs. I guess I will be watching my steps, and wearing long pants and boots around the yard for awhile.....YUCK!!! Snakes be gone. No pictures to prove this, cause I was so freaked out, just couldn't take one.
