We're so very thankful the rattler missed him, and so is he, to say the least. It happened this morning and he sent me the pic of snake. RIP snake. He walked up on it and didn't see it until he was too close to realize there was no getting away from it. I think this is the 4th or 5th one in a month but they're moved out of the yard if possible. A couple of weeks ago my Sis sat down next to a big snake that was resting underneath a little patio table outside her back patio door.
