Oh man...haven't seen one of those since I was a kid. We used to have them all over NM where I grew up. I can remember tying string around them like a leash and leading them around the yard!

All I found last night on the way to the bathhouse was this little guy. Didn't seem to mind having his picture made. Walked all the way back to the trailer to get the camera and he was still there. Did see Bambi a time or two today.

Makes you wonder which would get the best scream in a contest of "look what I found in MY bunk!"

At the Riverbend campground in South Fork, there is a meadow between the campground and the river that is full of little brown grass snakes. Last year a mischievous young lad caught a pocket full and turned them loose in the rec center. Shoulda seen them lil old ladies get up on them chairs.

We have a couple of Eastern hog-nose snakes keep appearing in our yard. I get the dogs in, escort them out into the woods, but they keep coming back. As dry as it is, they are looking for water. They put up qquiet a show when you scoop them up in a net or the dogs bark at them.

You've been gone from God's country much too long.
