There Is A Snake In My Boots !

Well, he may be in there or any where else for that matter. You see my kiddos found a nice sized garden snake the other day. They did like all little boys and kept him in a clear shoe box with a lid. You know the kind that organized women keep their nice shoes in. They are plastic and make great animal containers. The kids wanted to sleep with their "best friend in the world" so off to bed everyone and his snake went the other night. Fast forward to the next morning when there is an empty snake container in the bed and a slightly irritated mother. Now I am not sure what happened, or where mr. snake went but I do know that his "food", a nice juicy grasshopper who was in the box with him at some point, emerged later in the afternoon. He hopped right into my open paint can, then hopped right out again leaving a trail of grass hopper prints all over the house. It was a very exciting day as you can imagine.

I can't believe that #1, a snake is loose in your house and #2, the grasshopper just happened to jump in your paint! That's priceless! Aren't you glad you have a blog to make it all better?
