The forum was a substitute to bran muffins and wheat fibre optics because it made us all regular visitors.

Storms? Oh, mercy! It rained cats and dogs night before last; sheet after sheet after sheet of wind-whipped rain. So much rain that water in the 'lower 40' was near ankle deep.

 

Today's project, make a sign "Free to Good Home", jump in the pickup and drive to the 'main road' and post it. The rain was welcomed by the 25 Christmas pines (and me 'cause I don't have to go out and give them something to drink) I planted 3-weeks ago, but the poor little things sure took a beating from the pounding rain.

 

And then there is Wayne and raccoons floating by his upstairs bedroom window.... Hope he tossed out life jackets.

It was either a raccoon or a cat burglar with a mask on, either way, he was treading water for quite sometime.

Hello Wayne and the rest of the family. Here is Stinkblaar - I don't know about a flower! I am so busy with my new venture that I hardly get time to blow my nose, let alone get onto the forum. And I do miss all of you!

I'm trading in my tupperware now for some curling tongs and bed pan because i was just called to catch a snake in the convenience store across the road.

 

About as long as a ruler and a half and as thin as a pencil and at first I thought it was just one of those thing botox injected ladies from the neighbourhood but when it stuck its tongue out to sniff the air. I noticed no tongue ring so knew it be a snake. I despatched him far enough from the door.

 

Where is that Ruthie, when I needed backup????

Fetching the garden hoe, Wayne.

 

The only way to effectively 'dispose' of a snake is to remove the head from the body. Then, using same garden hoe, 'scoop' up the head and tail and either toss in the rubbish or nail it to a wooden sign as a warning to other would be 'slithering' visitors. Now, ya can keep the kitchen utensils in the kitchen drawer and....

 

kinda like Vegas, my friend, what goes on between you and the bed pan stays between you and the bed pan :whistling:.

The space between me and the bed pan is a fine line and nothing splashed out.

No this is not a hidden objects game that our dear friend Ruthie posts and it's not a shoelace lying there by the wall, it's the snake I had to fight into submission.

 

Word of advice before attempting to wrangle a snake, don't try the choke hold because I had trouble finding where the neck stops and the stomach begins.

 

Before anyone makes and funny remarks, let me warn you, I am taking down names and besides snakes always look bigger on tv, it's a Hollywood thing.

Hey, Wayne, that alleged "snake" looks more like an old piece of string. :laugh:

 

And no, Ruthie, not all snakes deserve the Queen of Hearts treatment. :suspicious:

You are correct :smile:. Garden snakes and such are very much welcome. The others are welcome to explore and 'play' in the acres and acres of timber behind the house... just not up on my patio and front porch.

Am horrible about misplacing things and Daddy always said if my head wasn't bolted down I'd lose it. Bolts are so heavy and they kinda distract from a necklace and earrings, soooo.... maybe a go-with-everything, basic black 'string' attached right behind the left ear on one end and the shoulder on the other end...

Frankenstein's monster comes to mind.

 

Oh yes Ruthie, a raccoon walked in front of our daughter two nights ago as she walked to her car after work. Now that's 2 raccoons and a possum and a snake all in city limits.
