Tuesday Tidbit - Snakes

I love all of God's creatures.  Except one, snakes.  

I never have.  

They give me the heebie-jeebies, the creepy-crawlies, the fits and starts.

I took my nephew to the Knoxville Zoo, (which is an excellent zoo, by the way) to see their snake exhibit.  I stood at the end of each portion and he could look and stare to his heart's content.  I could keep my eye on him and didn't have to look at any of the snakes.

He asked me why I didn't come look.  
I said, "I don't like snakes."
"But why did you come with me?"
"Because I love you."
(As he skipped back to the snakes) "And I love snakes!"

Yes, and that's what makes the world go round.

I tell you that to tell you this:

We had a snake in the yard the other day.  I stood cowering and whimpering on the porch.

The other members of my family did not.

Thank goodness for zoom lenses on this camera is all I have to say about that...


I read each and every comment, thank you for sharing in our farm!
