Well last saturday while at a pool party my glasses were some how misplaced. The people that the house belongs to have seven kids. I lost the glasses on the back porch so I think it wouldnt be that hard to wait for daylight and look for the stupid thing.

Well anyway, for the past week ive been going around with super blurry vision, as I have HORRID eyesight.,


So while " free ranging" my ducks ( I let them out for an hour or three a day) I decided to rearrange the back of my barn so that the ducks could get in and lay on the cool cement floor.

I pushed some bikes into order and look up. I see a snake right in front of my nose! So I screamed " oh *insert naughty word here* " and trip my way out of the barn. urning back around I stare at the spot ( remember, I cant see ) and the thing doesnt move.

So i step closer.

Put one foot in the barn.
Get a few steps closer.
and come face to face with ----

a five foot snake ............skin.


So I about pee'd myself over a snake skin. I unwrapped it from the metal bed thingy and it was still limp.

Was it recently shed or just not dryed out thanks to the barn temp?

Lol! I hope you get new glasses soon, I am VERY near sighted, so I can feel your pain. But the incident with the snake skin....priceless!!

Limp implies new, and if it was not crackly and still pliable, that pretty much says recent. But new skin or old, the problem remains the same... big snake in 'da house!

Now personally, I wouldn't view that as a "problem," unless I had a few ducklings or other small critters around. A snake is there for one reason: food.

Your ducks, being notoriously messy, have likely attracted moochers in the form of mice - and so the snake arrives for the buffet. Might be a good idea to consider it an ally, as opposed to being frightened of it.

And by all means, get some new specs so you can see - God knows what else you might stumble upon (or over) in your current state. Once you can see again, there, Mr. Magoo, you can keep a better eye out for that reptile.
