Guess Who Came to Dinner?
You always wonder what you're gonna talk about on your next blog post and then opportunity knocks.....................
While grilling up some bratwurst yesterday afternoon, my husband happens to look up and sees movement by the truck. At first it looks like a big brown mound and then it starts moving. From a distance, he couldn't tell what kind of snake it was, so immediately Bo was put on a leash. Rick runs in to tell me that we have a snake and I quickly grab my camera. (think blog pictures at all times) Nope, it wasn't a rattler, but we decided (not totally knowing the different species up here) that it was probably a Bull snake. They'll still bite and apparently hiss loudly when angered and many people mistake the sound as that of a rattlesnake.
We walked behind him to make sure that he left our property. That he did and slowly went off into the brush on the adjacent parcel - no doubt looking for a 4th of July morsel.
