Blogtoberfest Day 10

IMGP1529 copy

Almost missed a day!

I don't mind the wildlife where we live. Even these guys, when they stay outside like they should. But this guy, he crossed the line. I was taking stuff out to my car and when I was headed back towards the door I saw the end of his tail slither inside the front door. I felt rather like a SuperHero leaping over the threshold (and the snake) to get in front of him to herd him back out. If he had of got into my already overflowing cupboards, we may never have found him again, and I would be sleeping at a motel. He's still sending a shiver down my spine!

ARRRGGGH! I don't miss the wildlife. It's nice trampling through the woods and not having to worry about venom. Still wear my thick boots though, old habits die hard.

That's a very lucky catch indeed ... wildlife is wonderful, but yes it should be left outside! :)

Okay, he's green. Not brown. I feel better now.

Not sure I would have jumped over it ~ you are super woman & so brave!!!
I am slowly getting better with seeing snakes around our house... Though still have nightmares about the time a red belly black came inside thru the dog flap WHILE the snake catcher was trying to catch him!!! EEEK!
