One of These Things is Not Like the Other
Can you find the rope that doesn’t belong?
I was working on a blog post, but took a minute to take a piece of nylon rope out to the shed. I discovered a short length of rope a did not remembering hanging in that part of the shed. It had eyes.
At a gut-response level, it caused a reaction of COPPERHEAD! what with the blotched pattern. But it has a ratsnake head, because it is a form of rat snake genus called a CORN SNAKE.
Beautiful, isn’t it? And these snakes have the reputation of being quite docile, so maybe we’ll repeat this acquaintance when the grand daughters are here–which is likely to be the sum total of what consumes me and any blogging I’m able to do for the next ten days.
You were warned, unlike me this morning, hanging up the rope. YIKES!
