I was at the orchard tonight checking the trees and the rain gauge. I decided to check the Black Walnut and Pecans I planted at the back of the property. I was wading thru the grass when I looked down and found my foot right next to a 5 foot rattlesnake! I jumped into the air (while screaming like a little girl) and ran to the dirt road. I went back with a stick to make sure and it was definitely a rattlesnake.
I want to know why the little f***er didnt rattle. Dont we have some sort of agreement about that. He didnt even rattle when I poked him with the stick. Anyway, no more flip flops at the land. Boots only. I was wearing big rubber boots today, thank god. I am very proud I didnt soil myself. HA!
On a lighter note, we received close to an inch of rain at just about the right time. Things are looking okay out there.
