With John away, I didn’t expect to see anyone or anything out of the ordinary. There would be no need to be alert, watching out for April Fool pranks. Should I blame Mother Nature for what I saw today?
A little dead snake was in my path as I returned from walking to the stop sign. It was not there yesterday. Surely it’s too early for snakes! We’ve had temperatures only a few degrees above freezing in the last week. It couldn’t have been put there to scare me. Anyone who knows me, is aware that I don’t dread snakes. We won’t discuss spiders here. Twins, only one of whom might see this, once planted a dead spider from the train park in the trunk of my car. We are once again on speaking terms.
I took a photo of the snake, with my foot for a size comparison, and slithered on home. No other surprises have been forthcoming.
