A Snake on my House!

Last night, Brad was on his way out to feed Gus and Buddy and just about jumped out of his britches! Look what he saw as he reached for the screen door handle to leave the back porch. (Excuse our porch, it has not been redone yet.)

The snake was perched on the door.

His head is above and his tail was hooked around the banister so the door wouldn't open.

Full body shot of him curled around the handle with his tail keeping the door from opening all the way.

He was probably 2 1/2 feet long. Brad knocked him off into the bushes!

Well, I hope that after he was knocked into the bushes that his sweet little head was chopped off! We used to get lots of Copperheads sunbathing on our gravel driveway growing up, and a basic garden hoe will do just the trick! :)

I cannot BELIEVE that you took a picture of a snake. I mean, I cannot believe that you stood close enough to the snake to photo it! You are such a brave, brave girl. Seriously.
