Snakes... Gross!!! Nikki, I didn't know about copperheads...Oh-kay!

As a kid, my BFF and I would ride our bikes down to the swamp to catch yummy Maryland Blue Crabs. Budget crabbing consisted of a net, and some gnarly chicken necks on a string, which you'd toss into the murky water, waiting for that special tug that said you'd landed the mother of all crabs! Well, one day I thought I had. It was a fierce battle to reel him in. All was going well until a head broke the surface of the water. Yup, a snake, a water moccasin to be exact. Needless to say, I dropped the string and took off, BFF in tow. We were satisfied with what we had caught that day, and peddled like heck home. And to think we USED TO dangle our bare feet over the side of the pier, feet (and with high tide) and inches from the water...

Yeah, we went back for years, as greed won out over fear. Only later did I learn that in addition to the carp, turtles, crabs, moccasins, there were copperheads and other snakes in the reeds that surrounded the pier. Yeah, they even scrambled up the pilings sometimes. So pardon me if I hate snakes!!! Giggles, Keeks :?

I just had a little visitor my self. Almost got the dog in the hind quarter when I let her in the house the other day. This was almost 4' long also. Looking for a nice cool spot no doubt.

Glad no body got bit.

And our neighbors finally captured this one near their pool with the help of one of the kids.

Carol, be careful...once little girls get onto your porch, there's no getting rid of them. ;)

Well----
Once while fishing, I ran out of bait, so I was looking for something to use when I saw a Cottonmouth swimming along with a small frog. Knowing he couldn't bite me with a mouth full of frog, I grabbed him "behind the ears", and took the frog away. OOPS! Now, he doesn't have a mouth full of frog, so how do I get rid of him without getting bit? I poured a little of my Jack Daniels down his throat until he quit squirming, and tossed him back in the water. About half an hour later, I felt something nudging my foot, and there was that snake, with 2 frogs in his mouth, and a grin on his face!
