Heeby Jeebies

What do you do when you find a snake up against your house?  You poke it with a stick, of course!  And, in my case, you take lots of pictures.  Oh, the JOYS of living in the country!

We found a rat snake by the water faucet yesterday and the boys tried to catch it, but were unsuccessful.  My friend Landee confirmed it's a rat snake, which is a little of a relief.  My dear sweet fella tells me that it's good to have around.  That it will keep rats and things away.

I told him that while that was great, he failed to realize it would not keep SNAKES away from our house!  And right about now, I'm wondering what on Earth I was thinking posting this right before bedtime. Gonna check under my covers before I crawl in!

"Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you."
Luke 10:19

We were at Harbour Village when Cam was almost 2. It's an outdoor museum (really cool!) and JC, Bren & I were intently reading or looking at something when little Cam starts saying "nake", "nake" about 3 yards away from us. Sure enough, just another yard from him was a "nake". I think it was a rat snake as well. Ew!!!
