A Sssscary Ssssurprise
When Mark got home from Lubbock on Sunday night he noticed that there was something on our porch. He flipped on the light and saw that there was a snake curled up waiting to strike. Mark and Ryan are both fascinated with snakes so he had to open the door to see what kind of snake he was dealing with. After a closer look, he noticed that it was A DIAMOND HEAD RATTLESNAKE. Thank you Lord for allowing Mark to have car trouble (another story) and arrive home 30 minutes before we did. I cannot imagine seeing that evil snake curled up on our porch ready to strike!!!! I have no idea where he came from and I hope we never ever see his brothers or sisters. UUGG I really don't like snakes. Fortunately, our neighbors saw Mark run like he was being chased off the porch and immediately came out ready to wrangle the unwanted visitor. I'll just say that a hoe was involved and you guys can make your own conclusion as to what happened to Sally the Snake. The Moral of this story is to turn on your porch light before heading outside in the evening. Oh and death by rattlesnake is now among the list of my silly fears.
