There is a picture down below that some who can’t take seeing snakes may not want to see!
Just the other day on Facebook, someone was saying that Missouri has snakes too. I said . . I lived here 4-1/2 years and only saw two snakes. Yesterday, my second full day at the new house, I walked out onto the deck to use the phone . . and I thought we had bad cell service in Texas! I looked down and what? Is that a snake?
Yes, a friendly black snake. I took a picture, went in the house and called Addie to see because the day before she had been wanting to walk through the landscaping that’s kinda dense. I told her there could be a snake – not likely but possible. She thought. . no! Not here. So, I wanted her to see it.
She had told me she wasn’t coming back to Texas because of snakes, spiders and wasps. She had already seen a spider in the basement bathroom so she won’t go in there.
She came out to see the snake and saw this:
Get this .. I got out of the shower last night, grabbed my underwear out of the drawer. Something poked me and it was this.
A grass burr in my underwear! That thing somehow ended up in the washer in Texas and found its way into my clothing and made it to MO. Addie asked me what I was going to do with it. I told her put it in a ziplock bag and take it back to Texas. I wasn’t going to risk flushing it down the toilet, putting it through the garbage disposal or throwing it in the trash. I do not want those things here!
So, a snake, a wasp and a grass burr all in the same day. I’m thinking Texas is very angry with me for leaving! 🙂
