OH YUCK!!!!!!!!!!! Im so very very mega scared of snakes!! Hate em!!! Even the little gartner snakes. YUCK!
UGh.... I would be running in the opposite direction!
I wouldn't be waiting around to take a picture. By the way, thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. I'm really glad I found yours. I admire your weight loss. I am at a standstill after losing 25 lbs. I need to get back to trying harder.
Dear Julie,Thank you for your kind words. It has really been tough losing mom. Even though she was 84 she was in perfect health. I really miss her. I would be glad to sell you one of our cookbooks. We are printing extras to help cover the cost of printing. It will be a while yet but we hope to have them before Christmas. I'll get your address and info later. Thank you. I'm glad I have found a new friend. If you liked that blog about mom you might want to read some of my older blogs. There is one about mom called The Lost Art of Being a Lady.
I hate snakes too. Imagine my surprise when my youngest daughter decided to have one as a pet. Ugh. I am so glad that it is gone now. A few days ago she saw a rattle snake just outside the screen porch. There's always some critter around in Arizona it seems. Last year we had bats coming in and out of the porch and as soon as they migrated, we had the opening closed off so they could not return. We also had a small snake on the back porch. We usually see a tarantula or two each year and somehow a couple of scorpions will find their way inside as well. I wish they would all stay outside where they belong and far from us. :)
All Righty Then! Snakes are not overly fun, but when they're harmless Garters, well, I just leave them alone or shoo them away. Rattlesnakes and Copperheads? No mercy is shown for their ilk. They get whacked with a hoe, axe, machete, chainsaw, whatever is handy at the moment. Thankfully they are shy sort of snakes, so we don't see them too often.
Fear is what makes everyone shriek when they see snakes and or bats. The ones we have here in MN are generally not dangerous. I believe this one is a common garter snake, although I can not tell by the color. They are immensely important because they eat MICE!!!! Here is a place where you can learn more about them:http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/reptiles_amphibians/snakes_turtles/commongartersnake.html and here too: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/reptiles_amphibians/snakes_turtles/plainsgartersnake.htmlBats, too, are extremely helpful in control of insects, especially mosquitoes. Our bats (in MN) are generally harmless. Hope the information helps! Have a great day, Julie. Michele
Literally said, "GAH!" haha Hope he moves along sooon!
