If you’re deathly afraid of snakes you might want to close your eyes. I don’t like snakes but I’ve had to get used to having some around. We have a large pond literally at our back door. Not long ago I killed a moccasin about 50 feet from the kitchen door. I was walking to the barn and that icky, yucky, ugly thing was in my way. Too close to the house to leave it alone so I found a long piece of steel pipe and he/she is history.
As far as Sneaky goes….everyone can relax. 🙂 Sneaky is a fake snake…..albeit a well-traveled snake.
I bought Sneaky on the way to a retreat I hosted in New Braunfels, TX at T-Bar-M Ranch back in 2006. He made surprise appearances at different times and places throughout the retreat.
As you saw in the photo in my last post, he made appearances in the fruit bowl.
He took rides on Denise’s shoulder.
Sneaky didn’t make Quilter’s Romp in the Swamp in 2007 but he or Son of Sneaky made appearances at Romps we had in Jasper, Arkansas. Somewhere along the line Sneaky was replaced by Son of Sneaky. He probably wishes Denise would take that blasted plastic collar off.
Just in case you think we don’t do anything but play with Sneaky or Son of Sneaky when we go on retreat…..here’s this:
