And we’re getting close to Halloween and all things scary, I thought you might get a kick out of my snake, Steve. Steve is a black snake. He eats birds, rats, mice, and, I’m told by the locals, other snakes like the Copperheads also in this area, but I think that he’s being confused with the King snake, which in this area is black with white rings.
In any case, snakes give Guy the creeps, too. I grew up with snakes and I’ve a healthy respect for them, but if a snake were to have the choice of meeting me or Guy, he’d be better off meeting me. (laugh)
Steve has been under our house most of the summer, enjoying the cooler temps and keeping the mice from invading. Steve works the outside, the cats work the inside. I’ve not seen a mouse in my house _ever._ Guy spotted him leaving his adobe a few weeks ago, and I got it all on camera. Here’s just a few shots. 😉
