    About 10 years ago the insulated blanket around the water heater needed attention so the wife said we should replace it. As a I got a grip on the old one and started to remove it about 10 or more milk snakes came scurrying out of it...so we backed off it for a few days. They must have suspected we'd be back cause they all took off for parts unknown.

    I was grabbing some wood off my pile for a friend who was camping and a copper head was under a piece I was moving (in the summer I pull it off with a hoe so I am 6' or so away if kind of thing happens, and with the hoe I have a weapon in my hand), so I chopped the crap out of him. I try and leave the black snakes alone, but truthfully, to only good snake that I see - is a dead snake.

    I've got chipmunks in my wood pile . . . which I don't really mind . . . in fact I kind of enjoy watching them . . . although I think my cats enjoy watching them and playing with them more than me . . . unfortunately.

    'My' snake moved over to my neighbor's vegetable garden. Think he is probably patrolling both places. Share and share alike. ;-)
