We were told snakes lived out here and last year, all we saw was one shedded snake skin that our neighbor found in THEIR yard.
This year, things have gotten a little more personal. First there was the dead snake skin in front of our house. Then there was the live snake in our backyard the kids found..
And THEN. This big boy. So freaky that Troy went outside to play, and two minutes later I hear the garage door closing and he is in the house saying he doesn't want the snake to get inside so he closed the door. Ummmm. I had to go investigate. HE LIVES IN A HOLE BY MY MAILBOX people. GAH!
No. No snakes.
On the plus side, I don't think Troy wants a snake for a pet much anymore.
