Not What You Think

The Weimar might bring an occasion rodent, bird, or the found object to the door. Nevertheless, for most of us, there is a limit to our excitement for these gifts.

I am reminded of an adventure Leon, and I had when I about four years old. We came back from the woodsy neighborhood trek with a stick wrapped with a rattlesnake. We thought it was great. We didn’t understand the dangers. We had found this great snake, and it was dead. We just wanted to share our delight which was met with shrieks and a stern warning never to touch another snake. Today, I have no love for snakes even though I am acutely aware of the benefits they provide.

This story ended better than it began. Jessica writes:

Timber brought this snake out of the trees today while we were on our walk. Freaked me out until I realized it was a rubber snake.

It is the truth that this turned out well; however, for most of it, there would have been a certain amount of alarm. We say, rightly so. How on earth would you get then to leave a dangerous snake without getting hurt? There is a scary thought.

  1. that would be THE nightmare for me… I had to rescue the pup with touching a snake… aaaaaaah :o) who placed a rubber snake somewhere outside… maybe a leftover from last howl-o-ween?

    • Rubber snakes also are sometimes used to deter rodents–questionable whether that works or not. Halloween snake maybe :O) Well you might need to change your britches after such an encounter. LOL

  2. OMG, I would have needed a change of panties. Snakes still give me the heebie-jeebies. Glad Gob doesn’t mess with them.
