Monday, July 18, 2005What would you do if you found this lovely creature under your bed, in your basement bedroom? He/she was a 6-foot-long, 3-inch-thick "garden snake" my better half's brother found a few nights ago while cleaning his room in Virginia. Snakie apparently wandered in through a small hole in the basement window siding in the laundry room. Bravely, bro-in-law's dad picked up the otherwise harmless (!) snake using only barbecue gloves and took it back outside.
We jest that it's all the horse manure in their backyard garden (which is lovely and verdant as can be) that makes the garden snakes grow so luxuriantly.
Come to think of it, Snakie was probably hours or minutes away from being found in the bed, rather than under it...and I've stayed in that room as a guest.
