The Signs of Summer...

You know it's summer when...


Your daughter and husband come in the kitchen door.  Your daughter yells, "Hey, You want to see the snake we caught out front?  It's a Rattlesnake*!!!"

*Child saying this is NOT a certified reptile or an other type of animal expert.

New Rules of the Burrow:  
1) No coming into the house with snakes.
2) No coming into the house and saying we have a Rattlesnake!
3) I'm sure I'll think of more rules.  
-----
FACT:  This snake did rattle it's tail when trapped.  

But I am pretty sure it's either a Corn Snake or a Bull Snake.  It was released out back after my husband played Steve Irwin and had to grab it by the tail and say, "Cri-kees! She's a Beauty!"  Poor baby.  It was just wanting a snack of chipmunks or mice.

never thought I would say a snake was pretty, but that one actually does look it!!!

Yuck! No thank you....I'm glad it's your child and not mine bringing it in the house.

Your familys antics are not for the faint of heart. Thankfully my grandsons have only brought home bugs, frogs and lizards so far.

I nearly stepped on one just like it last summer as I walked out the garage doors. It was slithering across the driveway. SCARED me half to death! The only good snake in my book, is a dead one. I'll leave the killing of the pests to the cats- snakes? NO THANKS!!
