Fun with Snakes

Sometimes there is a light in the hubby's eyes that rivals any excitement that our three children can display. A few specific things bring this light: Cardinals baseball, Auburn football, naps (smile), and snakes. 
Yes. Snakes. 
If, by some chance a friend were to find one on the road that was just the other side of life and invite the hubby to investigate it (venom and rattlers and all), the hubby would bubble with excitement.
And take lots of pictures.
And talk about it for weeks.
There is a beauty to these creatures, isn't there?


  1. Hmmm, snakes scare me. When I was very young I used to help my brother catch snakes. He would sell the Gardner snakes to the neighborhood kids.
    Once I learned that some snakes could bite I was done helping him. Lol, thanks for stirring up the memories. Thank you for stopping buy and leaving the sweet comment.

  2. Ewww.... Looking at snakes is like watching a car accident for me. I don't want to look at them, but I can't help it :-)

  3. LOL! I am totally with Charise. :) Mesmerized horror for me too. ;) What IS it with guys and snakes?!

  4. Sorry friend- No beauty in snakes for me. I think they are just plain scary creatures :(

  5. Never so thankful that Hubby is just as scared of them as I am!

  6. My grandmother was so scared of snakes she made my uncles get a pet one so she could get over it. Not sure if it worked…
