My bathroom visitor

I live in the country..........so it isn't nothing uncommon in this part of the woods....but today while the spouse and I was gone to town, my father in law called to tell me who visited in the bathroom.
 
 
And just because my only nephew is so darn cute...........

Re: My bathroom visitor

Oh goodness!!!  Why why why did you have to post this? Smiley Surprised
A couple years ago there was a news report that  nearby residents found a (to me) giant snake coiled up in their toilet when they opened the lid. I was scared of my bathroom for a month after that....Eeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwww....Me and creepy crawlies of any kind do not get along....eeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwww.. I have since moved to the sticks and had forgotten all about that...until now...

Re: My bathroom visitor

Was this your namesake, coming to call?

I was 8 months pregnant with our first child, DH out of town for 2 weeks, when my cat brought in a large snake, dead, mostly. I stood on the bed and pondered this for a while, wondering how bad my body would look after 2 weeks, before I called animal control. They said from the description that it sounded like a king snake, so after a while, I got it into a laundry basket and threw it out onto the hill beyond our back yard.

Phew, I still remember that smell. (The snake, not my dead body.)

LOL, no it was a copperhead.
 
My father in law was actually bite by a copperhead in the woods one day. This was before my time, spouse was still in high school.
 
From what I hear, he was quite swelled. As you can tell from the pic, my father in law isn't a big guy, but he got bit on his wedding ring finger and that arm was 18 inches around.
 
He was in the hospital for a few days.

Re: My bathroom visitor

DW saw a garden snake in the backyard the other day and I offered to find it and dispatch it to meet its ancestors.  She told me that it is bad luck to kill a snake.
 
If I do find it I am going to tell her it went to the snake farm in Virginia.  Next store to the farm where our beagle Georgy Girl went when we were kids.
 
I say its bad luck to have a scared wife.

Re: My bathroom visitor

There are weeks where I feel like I should charge admission to my yard --
 
Raccoons, slugs, rabbits, toads, geese, possums, squirrels, a bat, and of course, the two dogs.  At some point one of the dogs dragged in a dead bird and continued to do an autopsy on the couch (yuck).  One of the dogs dragged in a dead slug, too.  (I stock a lot of salt at my house, they don't get the beer!)
