    Come on now don’t lose any sleep over it. If it makes you feel any better I have never had one crawl in bed with me. If fact I have only twice had to remove and relocate them from the living quarters of the house and that’s been a couple of years ago. Hey, I don’t like snakes either but you do get used to them. This house is more than a hundred and sixty years old. Most likely black snakes have been coming and going here for more than three of my life times. I don’t know how I would make this house snake proof even if I tried. As you can see they can get through very, very small holes. Just think how small of a hole a little 3 footer could get through.

    Sleep tight.

    Wow. Do you ever feel like standing in your living room and screaming, "Enough is enough! I have had it with these mother***ing snakes in this mother***ing house!" in your best Samuel Jackson voice? Just kidding with you, but I think I'd take the mice.

    Yow-zers . . . pics like these remind me of why I'm glad I live in Maine. The only snakes I see are the harmless, little garter snakes for the most part . . . and absolutely no poisonous snakes.

    As far as the mice . . . that's why I have cats. :) ;)

    I used to have cats. I don’t know where they got to. They just turned up missing.

    I bring in only a days' supply of wood at a time. I usually give each piece a knock or two on the splitting block before it comes inside. Unless it's wood that I know has termites. In that case it goes straight into the fire.
