Summer’s here – must mean Snakes are back

Well, not snakeS (pl.), just snake. I’m convinced that every time I see a snake around here, it’s just the same one.

So THE snake reappeared a few days ago in an interesting place.

We have something called a Doggie Dooley buried in our yard.

I went to make a “deposit” in it a few days ago, opened the lid, and much to my surprise, there was a snake curled up on top of the contents. And this Dooley was nearly full.

Now I’ll leave it to you to find out what a Doggie Dooley would be filled with and then you might understand why I found this a little surprising. I guess I have a lot to learn about snakes.

I did amuse myself for the rest of the day with a little song I made up dedicated to this snake that any five year old would have been proud of. But I’ll keep that to myself.

  1. I’m definitely going to want to hear it.Perhaps it needs to be recorded, produced (Carl Franklin-ninja audio style) and broadcast to the wider world where it becomes the newest internet sensation!If you were to be able to get grainy video of the snake lounging in the dooley den, then YouTube stardom would be sure to come. 🙂

  2. He’s been either in or near the doggie dooley every time I’ve gone near there. This morning he’s making the rounds since he was there, then I saw him in the flower garden in front of the house. You understand, of course, that there is ONLY ONE snake.

  3. Just a garden snake. We saw THREE in the compost bin this afternoon. Now I can no longer claim it’s just one snake that gets around alot.
