Today the girls and I stumbled across a snake in the yard. It was pretty big, relatively speaking, compared to other snakes I've seen.
Later, JP went to step out of our back door and nearly stepped on the snake, who was slithering his way across our patio. JP picked up a small shovel and did away with it. Do me a favor and don't get all "save the snakes" on me. It needed to go.
Fully stretched out he was almost 30 inches long. JP proceeded to find and extinguish three other snakes near his pole barn that same night. Good riddance!
