The Snake and the Fence
The snake and the fence title might have caught your attention, but I'm afraid they having nothing to do with each other in this post. I am sorry for deceiving you. First things first. As you can see we have fence blocking off the grass. Remember how I complained about the poop on the grass? This is our solution. I hope that with encouragement and treats the dirt will be the new spot and remain that way once the fence is removed. Do you think we can do it? Now on to the snake......
My husband loves all creatures. I sometimes think to myself that the best day on the job as a firefighter for my husband will be when he gets to save a dog or cat like you see in movies and cartoons. It seemed unlikely that this will ever happen, but he came really close the other day. A large company in the city had a mulch fire one night and my husband came across this snake. He was thrilled that it was still alive and kept it while extinguishing the fire. However, upon further examination after the task was complete it became evident that his first "save" was no more. It had inhaled too much smoke and it got the best of him. However, the hubby was proud of himself enough to still bring it home and show me what almost was. That was swell of him since he knows I hate snakes with a passion. Now that I think about it, this picture looks like it was taken on my kitchen counter. 1st problem. The second problem is that I doubt he wiped it off with a Lysol wipe afterwards. Don't be surprised if the next post is about another fatality. Now you know about the snake and the fence.
Stay tuned for a giveaway!
