Last week as we were getting ready to head out, and this little fella made his appearance in the back yard. I almost stepped on it with my flip flops on. I wonder if he could have gotten ahold of my big ole toe? I quickly rendered him..................lifeless and brought the kids out for a quick lesson on "pretty" snakes and how dangerous they are. We then took it out to MeMe and Pop's house and coiled it up by their back door to see if we could scare one of them. It didn't work but everyone couldn't believe how big it was. It was about 24" long. Keep an eye out for snakes, we've heard lots of stories about how they are out and about.
