1. The man yesterday, out of the blue, started telling me about the snakes around here.
2. The school where I teach was inordinately cold today, and between classes I kept having to go out front and sit on the curb trying to rebuild some warmth in my body....very herpetological of me.
3. While walking His Chuckiness in the hills today I saw a big snake! It was probably three feet long (or a meter for you metric types), skinny, poo brown with some darker sections, but no stripes and a skinny head....and a very long skinny tail.
Chuck was profoundly disinterested. I was deeply fascinated. It was all coiled up and forgive me, but I thought it was an uncollected turd at first, then it moved....
I am still kicking myself for not bringing the camera.
I cannot identify the animal despite a half hour search online.
Ah well...it's not a photo blog I suppose.
Coming soon to this space...scorn, mothers and teens...where's the line....
