I Am My Husband's Hero.

I just "saved" him from a black racer snake that were on our back patio.



Picture this is your mind...me with a full oven mitt and extra long cooking tongs...chasing a snake around the patio. Not a pretty sight...but I was successful. The snake is gone.

I could have sworn that we lived in the suburbs, not the backwoods. In less than a months time, we have had visits from a freaky frog, a rambunctious raccoon, and now a sneaky snake. I am almost afraid to ask what stopping by next!

The only good snake is a dead snake.

You are far braver than me. You should get a medal for that!

I hate those snakes too. Wish they weren't in my neighborhood. I can take the rest of the wildlife, even the gators.

That's scary. I'd probably have been wildly throwing knives at it's head.

You brave, brave woman. We had a snake two years ago... very similar. We called a friend to get it out of our yard because my husband sprinted out of the yard faster than Forrest Gump.
