Curly has been missing since 8/27 when he escaped from his aquarium. I was sitting having a cup of coffee at 5:15 this morning in the den, and the dog kept barking at the computer. I heard paper rustling and thought that there was NO WAY I was going looking back there myself! Off I go to wake the 16 year old daughter..Not a good thing to do on a school day when she still has an hour to sleep. We looked like the Keystone Cops trying to find the snake. My husband has boxes, papers, all sorts of things stored under and around his desk. We finally catch sight of curly's tail moving and my daughter said, "you grab him, he hasn't eaten in 3 weeks and I'm not touching him". We finally got hold of him and he is back in his tank. After school he will be fed and happy once again. We have added additional bricks on top as he is getting stronger the larger he grows. At least he's home again.
