Two things

I'm praying in agreement with this post today.


This is why I love living out in the country (aka "fake Raleigh")

This is not the actual deer that meandered across our yard this morning. Between me oohing and aahing, then running into Matt's office to let him know the wonders of nature were actually in our yard, by the time I remembered that we owned a camera and oh, wouldn't this be a great picture, the little doe had wandered off into the woods.

This is why I do not always love living in the country.

This is the actual snake that was on our back deck--he's much bigger than the one that was hanging out in our driveway, sorry no pic of that one. He's peeking in Matt's office to check on him. Our local snake charmer (aka Matt) gathered the snake up on a broom handle and escorted him back into the woods. I however would have prefered the old shovel to the head method for dealing with the snake, but Mr. Snake Charmer assured me this guy was a good guy and kept the varmints from coming in our house to reside.

I guess sometimes you have to take the good with the bad!

Is is just me or does that sentence above remind you of The Facts of Life TV show. You know it, sing it with take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have the facts of life, the facts of life.

Okay, enough fun for now! Hope you have a great day!

aOh, the joys of country living - the good and the ugly. I'm with you with the whole shovel to the head, but black snakes are good guys (even though they are yucky!).
