After he had been outside for a while, Stephen came to the sliding glass door and knocked on it to get my attention.
He was standing there with a 6-foot black snake in his hand.
He says they’re harmless. I don’t mind snakes, as long as they stay away from me. But a snake about as long as my husband is tall, and I’m perfectly happy to keep my distance.
All this happens after I had weird dreams last night about snakes. At least he didn’t find a copperhead. But then again, if it were a copperhead, he wouldn’t have caught it – he would have killed it!
He did tell me later why he had caught it though – it was in the chicken coop. We’re not getting too many eggs a day yet, and we certainly don’t want a snake eating all our eggs before we can get to them!
