You know by now to expect the unexpected to happen at my house. On Wednesday morning as I got up I went to the back door to unlock it, stunned I stood there and my thought was that I has seen a snake. I did. He was climbing the broom handle about 6 inches from my nose. He stuck his tongue out at me and that is when I went ballistic. I started screaming and ran. I put my feet in the chair, looking back, here he came towards me. He slithered behind the chair, then he took off to the sewing room and decided to make it his home. He or I had to go.
Coming in for help were Adam Gafford, Lannie Jernigan, George Whitson and Lurch, Jerry Hart, Kay Thornberry, Lois Ann Cornelius, Darren Seigers and Anthony Fulcher. After they all left, Stanley and I called the police department and thank God they finally got the critter.
I told all that asked how long he was and that was 11 feet and 40 inches. Do you think they believed me? Of course not. However, he was probably 4 feet long.
Has anyone ever heard me say before how much I appreciate our police? Well, when I called them they sent 2 deputies, Laura Hadden and Kevin Bibb. They were the winners who finally got him. If he were going to spend the night I’d go somewhere else, but of course got to stay home. I hope that does not happen to anyone else it ain’t funny.
I was surprised today (Saturday) when a a knock at the door there stood a kid. I had not seen a little boy, the son of the late F.L. Ballard Wayne of Bowling Green. I sure enjoyed seeing him and visiting while with him.
One thing I learned after the fact is if you will keep your moth balls around, snakes will not come around. Now we will see. We now have moth balls scattered around the house and car port.
After being up most of the night last night I didn’t make it to church this past Sunday. I had a bad night. Hopefully several did get to attend though.
Are you getting a lot of political calls? They are driving me nuts. If they think this is going to get me to vote for them, think again. The more they “bug” me then that means you ain’t going to get my vote. Most of them are people that are going to make “nasty” remarks about their opponents.
Have a good week. Do something good for someone this week. You will feel better and so will they.
Smile, God loves you!
