We had an unexpected visitor at our front door this evening. Josh noticed him while sweeping the front walk. Don’t worry, Josh grabbed him and released him into the great wild woods in our backyard. He slithered into the grass a very happy camper.
PS – the last time Josh and I saw a snake very similar to this was in the basement of the house I grew up in in Indianola. I turned and saw a snake slithering out of the guest bedroom, screamed and ran up the stairs…Josh was right behind me! Neither of us could pick it up, so I put a basket over it with a phonebook on top and Dad took care of it when he got home. I guess with age comes bravery!
