SPRING HAS SPRUNG,........NO DOUBT ABOUT IT..!!!! On the way home the other day about 1 1/2 miles from here, a big ole black snake was wiggling across the road. I got him with the right tires but the guy behind me several hundred feet stopped, backed up and made sure! I have no use for ANY snake.......Period!

I'm going to repeat what you just said:
SPRING HAS SPRUNG.......NO DOUBT ABOUT IT...!!!
While moving some flowers from one spot to another, i looked over and there was a 4' black snake almost in the spot I planned to dig. He didnt change his location, so I did. I got the flowers and headed back to the planting spot, moved the grass around with the shovel and there was a small brown stripped snake! Sheesh.

You folks ought not to disturb those snakes. LOL My dad would steer clear of the snakes, but Mom could grab them by the tail and whiplash them against a fence post or whatever was handy and go right on about her business... One tough lady. lol

God forgive me but I hate a serpent too, any serpent. I kill them on sight except for the big black ones that eat the poisonous copperheads around here. The cottonmouths are my worst enemy from the snake family.

I like to go wade fishing every year long about the last of May and have ran into plenty of the sneaky things. I'll spend the .50 cents it costs to shoot one, now days we have to make the first shot count with the ridiculous price of ammo, even reloads.

A whole lot of people around here still handle the things during worship. That's risky business if you ask me.

As a teen, I bought my first gasoline powered push mower and ran over a snake and it slung the bloody mess and wrapped it around my sister's bare leg. Needless to say, after she cleaned her underwear she never came any where close to my mowing. LOL

Just stopping in to wish you all a Happy Easter! Been rather busy getting ready for company next weekend. It's going to be so much fun! Some of my other grandchildren are coming to visit. I am so blessed to have 8 grandchildren to spread the love!

I am not to fond of snakes either. I don't like big spiders!

The only rattler around here are the Cane Brake Rattlers but I've not seen one........YET! Seen a few Copperheads but they were faster than I was,......but then, so is a turtle! Now Cottonmouths, there was this one that kept slithering back and forth, from one end to the other, in the row of Lilly Of The Valley right in front of our front porch. It took me forever to get him out of there but when I did Belle handed me the Marlin .22 and that's all there is to that! But, man did he ever get an attitude! Odd thing is, they're water snakes and the nearest two ponds are just short of 1/2 mile away.......go figure????

First of all, Happy Easter to all!
He is Risen! No sunrise service for me but I'm sure several of you did get up early to attend.

It doesn't seem right to talk about snakes on this same post but...I once was following the creek with my siblings behind me and I heard a rattle like a baby rattle. Up ahead I saw a snake with its tail pointed upward and shaking. I said the dreaded word "SNAKE" , we turned tail and got back to the road pronto! Many ( like 35) years later I mentioned it to dad. He quickly said that there were no such snakes around here. Ha . I wisely didnt argue but a couple years ago i asked the electric lineman who spends a lot of time in snakey places and he said yes there's timber rattlers . Yup. I knew it!

Dad used to catch a lot of snakes, either by hand or using a short pole with a cable noose at the end. He sold them until he found out they were to be killed then he quit supplying snakes. The one snake that caught my attention was a spreading viper! We "played" with that one quite a while! He never mentioned catching water moccasins or the copperheads..just nonpoisonous varieties., One day my better half was with him and Dad stopped the car and picked up a black snake and threw it in the floorboard. Dad calmly drove the last couple miles home while my better half went nuts watching the floor under his feet!! Heeheehee!

Imposter: glad to have you back ! KFC sounds really good about now! I'm starved!
AW: even that bologna sandwich sounds wonderful.
For my quick meals lately I've bought some all beef hotdogs and I dress them out with brown spicy mustard and sweet pickle relish
Wonderful day here! Walked through the woods to a lake and then checked out a creek with a huge amount of huge stone., awesome. Then I did a little stint as judge for a local youth group! Free food!! Yay!! Good times with old friends now I'm spending time at a friends house. It's hard to believe we've known each other for 32 years... Time goes so fast!
Good morning D )

I did not find it necessary to drive into town to some group setting for a sunrise service. I see the sunrise and worship GOD every day in my own ways. Happy Easter to you and everyone..... Louis Armstrong... What a Wonderful World.

Hopping' down the bird thread trail,

Things to make your morning bright as day

A six pack for anne too,
There's monkey bars for your mommy
And a place to hang out too.

Hopping' down the bird thread trail,
Hippity hoppity,
