So, this morning as I am heading out the door with my laundry basket to go down to the laundry room, I look down and right under where the door was--was a snake! I love wildlife. I have even been known to get into a dumpster to rescue a raccoon. BUT--I do not like snakes. Never have--never will. And my problem is, I don't know which ones are poisonous and which aren't. This was kind of striped, not the Black Racers which I know aren't dangerous. Now that I look at pictures I think it was probably a Corn Snake which aren't dangerous but I didn't get all that good a look at it. I closed the door and locked it! Of course, this meant that the snake was right under the door. Even though I'm not a snake fan, I felt bad because I was afraid I had mashed it. After I got back from the laundry, I got Mr. Snowbird to help out. We got a stick and a towel. The stick to shove him out on the porch and the towel to catch him if he managed to get in the house! We did manage to get him out from under the door and he slithered away under the front porch. He didn't seem to be hurt, thank goodness but Ewww.
Sarah Palin was in Ft. Myers today. I normally watch General Hospital in the afternoon but today it was pre-empted by Sarah. I couldn't help wondering if it was really her or if Tina Fey was covering for her. Of course, she spent her whole speech slinging mud at Obama. She did say at the end of her speech that she intends to "keep giving material to Tina Fey to keep her in business. It's job security for her." Should be an interesting month! BTW, Joe Biden is in town next week.
