Thamnophis Brachystoma

It says here the snake will emit a foul odor from its anal glands if you try to pick it up. It farts? I knew I loved these things!

I don’t know if this is the same snake that was the garden earlier this year or a different one. Either way, this one is about 3x larger than the first. I was able to find it because Toby tried to stick it up his nose.

This was the baby that came to visit in the spring.

Snake and dead toad

Geordie was petrified of snakes and wouldn’t go near them. At least I didn’t have to worry about him being bitten.

Real Life Me is a badass.

The New Sweater (or How Rocky Road Can Keep You Warm)

Hand Knit Man's Rocky Road Cardigan

This is the project I have been working on lately, to the great dismay of my pups.  They don’t like when anything takes my attention away from them…especially little Toby.  There was much howling and crying for love as I constructed this dark brown beauty that somehow makes me hungry for ice cream whenever I am around it.

Little do they realize that these projects are what keeps them in biscuits and peanut butter – two things that they are absolutely certain they would die without.   I must make more sales in the near future, though.  Soon the weather will be warm, and they will be expecting doggie ice cream.

You weren’t kidding about that ice cream, were you?
