(S)he’s baaaack

I’ve been here since December 2002 and They’ve been here since that April. We saw our first rattlesnake this year-and I posted about it on March 28th. Every morning, the irrigation system starts at 8:35. He noticed something that needed maintenance and at 9:30 he headed out to fix it. On His way there, He found this:


See the rattles on the end. It was under a lime tree. The rabbits dug a little furrow in the dirt that gets wet from the drip system and they lie there because it is wet and cool. You won’t find any rabbits there right now because they’ve been evicted under penalty of death. Here’s another view.


He left it alone. All it wanted to do was to cool off. I have the feeling that Kenzie and I won’t be allowed out the back much today.

  3. My uncle Fergus spotted an Eastern Brown snake in his backyard last year, they’re the second most venomous snake in the world! He wasn’t allowed outside without supervision for AGES!

  4. Whoa there guys – now that’s a real snake, all sneaky-like, hiding in its hole! Not like the tiny little slithery things we have here on our soggy island that is the United Kingdom! Oh well, looks like its “crossed legs” today for you and Kenzie today!

  5. Ooh, scary looking critter! Maybe you andv Kenzie can leave a little note by that furrow, telling that thing this is YOUR yard! He’d get the message, right?

  6. Snakes, somebody read snakes and bites took of to the house, woder what he would do if the real thing came through
