Let me Clarify...

For those of you who are bothered by my blog about snakes, let me make it perfectly clear...there is only one way to move a snake permanently....KILL IT!!

If you notice the tool Ron is carrying has a blade on it. I just didn't think that I should put the gruesome details and pictures . But rest assured, that snake has gone on to its maker.

I realize all creatures were put here for a purpose; however, even with the best of purposes, I HATE SNAKES!!
When Ron and I first moved to the country, we occassionally saw snakes but haven't really seen any close to the house for at least 20 years. Imagine my surprise when I went to the mailbox yesterday morning and had a visitor next to the walkway. Ron wasn't home and of course when he got home the snake had disappeared. Well I went online and read that it was probably a black/rat snake and not harmful. I don't care....I HATE SNAKES!! One way to get rid of such snakes was to put moth balls close to their bed and they can't breath so they leave. Ron put out the moth balls around the front of the house and we hoped for the best.
SURPRISE...This morning it was back. So the only conclusion was to remove it...PERMANENTLY.

I hope this snake was an orphan and there will be no more. But I'm always on the lookout now.

Thomas Visit

Here are my pictures of our visit to Thomas the Train back in April. I'm not trying to duplicate the blog that Nikki has but I do have a few different pictures, especially some of her with Eli.

Mother's Day

These roses are my gift from Ron this year for Mother's Day. He is also building special beds for them.

I can't be with all my family and friends on Mother's Day but I want to share them with you as a tribute to the wonderful Mothers you are.

The Masters

As most of you know, Ron is totally in love with Golf. So after watching The Masters for 37 years and hearing "one of these days", Christmas day 2007, I gave him a ticket, along with Burt and Josh.

Christmas morning was such an exciting moment when they opened their surprises (Nikki and Christy were in on it with me). So all they had to do was wait until April.

Here are their pictures of The Masters Par 3 round on Wednesday, April 9. The weather turned out perfect and I think, so did the day!!!
