I'm going to need some extra liquid courage to sleep tonight.

I hate snakes!

I've handled a lot of snakes and that makes me nervous! Did you come across him already dead?

Just Camera trick, put snake nearer to camera on long stick, that is why he is straining so much

Evil photoshop! I should've known, those boots are too fancy to wear with shorts.

OMIGAWD! Ricky, I did see it! Heavens to Betsy!

I saw it was fake. Doesn't help me much. I SAW it. Yuck.

I was tempted, however, to ask, "was that in your traylah?" LOL

I will never live it down. I know that.

But I'm still turning my trailer upside down before sleeping in it! Same ole me.

I don't get you Mutual of Omaha types. If I see a snake I go for a shovel or a .22, not a camera!

Okay, this is not amusing!!

I thought it was real, and was never going to go back to southern Louisiana again!

Some of us are scared to death of spiders, snakes, tarantulas and things like that, and it is very impolite to mess with ones' phobias.

We were camping in Paulden, AZ several years ago and a fellow camper told me so many stories about the mountain lions lurking around, who would snatch their prey by the back of the neck, that I refused to leave the RV for the shower unless it was a) daylight and b) my husband escorted me.

There are, you know, huge boa constrictors loose in the Florida swamps, former pets that got too big or whatever. They caution you to be careful when you are outside and keep your pets and small children close.
