yesterday i was cleaning where the wood racks collected debri over the winter now that they are empty it is easy to get right down on your hands and knees and realy do a nice neat job naturaly while you are down there it is hard to get back up (BEING 70 DOES NOT HELP) i was picking twigs and peices of bark when this stick i picked up suddenly curled around my arm. i am not sure how but i stood up and removed myself from the area in record time incidently did i mention i don't like snakes. the snake was gray with some sort of markings on its back about 3 feet long and went in to the woods at a rate of speed about half mine. of course in a different direction than i was going

My wife came in the other night in a pouring rain and run in the door to tell me she had just saw the biggest rattlesnake ever crossing our driveway.We hopped in the car with our dim little flashlights and gave our best shot at finding it,but never did.

She is not at all afraid of snakes but from the look on her face I know this was a grandaddy!She said it was about a third way in our driveway and the head was about the size of my hand and there was about 2 1/2 foot sticking out in the drive and it was just starting to get big.She ran over it but I guess it made tracks.Hopefully!

heh heh - good story to start the day - it'll remind me every time i look at twigs. :)
I'm about the same way with spiders - big ones anyway. Got nothing really against them except i like them better someplace else. WAY else! Once when the kids were small we'd just got back from shopping and i went out barefoot to feed the rabbits before dark. Was coming back and there was a dark frog crossing the light walkway so i bent down to get it and show the boys a froggy. Nonchalantly picked it up and was straightening up - about halfway up i realized 2 things at once: Frogs aren't warm and frogs aren't fuzzy! Well, i slung the thing, ran got a flashlight and sure enough, it had been a big hairy tarantula! Well at least i know what those gawdawful things feel like - EEW boy - that fella took a shovel ride WAY out in the hills :)
