it's been about 14 months since i saw him. and to be honest, i really sincerely did not think it could actually be him.
but remember the little snake that was in my basement last spring, the one that single-handedly scared the 'crap' out of my plumber?
i think i saw him last week. in fact, i've seen him every single day THIS week. i layed some cocoa chip mulch down over the weekend in his fave spot, and WOW. i have a huge snake family that loves cocoa chips. apparently we all love chocolate over here on the back forty. the whole family also loves winding themselves into my bushes and hanging from the branches in the sun. talk about a surprise when you're trimming the hedge! (that is what he's doing in the pic above, he is a foot or so off the ground, just a hangin').
anyway, i recognize him by the fact that the end of his tail was chopped off, probably from the trauma of being in the basement (or maybe from the crazed plumber). this guy is seriously a BIG snake, probably a couple feet long, and over an inch in diameter.
he also has a well-healed walloped off tail :))
hi buddy! i missed you!
but seriously, you need to stay over THERE.
