wonderful weekend - jayne - 06-08-2009

we went Thursday to cedar lake camp the weather was beautiful,altho the camp ground was full it was nice...we came home went to go to the barn to gather eggs and Bill hears a hissing noise of course he yells JAYYYYYYYNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE so I come he says hear that hissing noise I said yes sounds like someone is ticking off a sitting goose...(she is sitting on 8 eggs)Bill goes into barn comes right back out (white as a sheet)and says there is a huge snake in there I am calling the Wagners(these kids love snakes and are always catching them for pets) I figure my idea and Bills idea of huge when it comes to snakes are 2 different ideas.........so I go into barn where the goose and her nest mate(the 2 geese take turns sitting on the nest)are hissing at this hugeeeeeeeeeeeeee freaking snake he is in the process of trying to swallow a goose egg.....I stand there watching till Seth shows up to catch this thing....He looks at me and says thats one big snake (yep it is) How are we(he said we) gonna capture it? I said I am open to ideas can we do it before he ruins the whole darn nest?You gotta empty feed sack (he asks) yep I do I go over to the feed barrel and empty a 50 lb sack of corn into the barrel and come to him with the sack.......this kids says...ok while his jaws are unhinged to swallow the egg I am gonna grab him real fast you hold open the sack once he is in close the sack fast....My big brave husband is about 50 feet outside the barn watching......Seth goes to get the snake and the darn geese go to snapping at him....so I get to remove those pinching pissed off geese I got the first one fast enough but the 2nd gets me a good one...My big brave honey is still a good 50 feet away while his darn geese are pinching me............Seth reaches down fast as he can grabs the snake right behind his head and jerks him up...this thing is a good 7 feet long and as big around as my arm.....I tell Seth take him out so Bill can see you put it in the bag or he wont go back in the barn ever....this bad boy is huge Seth puts it in the bag and takes his new pet home......Bill goes to the farm supply and buys snake cristals he never wants another one in the barn...so you all do anything exciting this weekend?

ROTFLMAO.

I guess what you did was better than how I would have handled the situation. This way the snake lives.

Way to go Jayne! Your weekend was certainly more "exciting" than mine. Tongue


RE: wonderful weekend - jayne - 06-08-2009

RE: wonderful weekend - RNvic - 06-08-2009

Jayne,

Oh my lord......way to much excitement for me girl.

I did get out of the house Saturday evening for the first time since the myelogram 2 weeks ago. We went out to have dinner. Friday evening my sweetie asked me, ok where would you like to go out to eat tomorrow night. So I thought about it briefly and came up with a place called Guidry's Oyster Reef in Lafayette. No, I did not have oysters.....yuck....don't eat those things cooked any kind of way but I did have the fried crawfish with cole slaw, stuffed potatoe and hush puppies. I ate so little and it was so plentiful we both ate leftovers the next day for lunch. We also had an order for crab stuffed mushrooms and had two of those left to bring home also. My sweetie had the 1/2 and 1/2 crawfish etoufee and fried crawfish with stuffed potatoe, hush puppies and cole slaw. Their cole slaw is very good there. Next time you come to this area you will need to try this place and it is not expense for the amount of food you get. Two meals for the price of one was not too bad. I always have plenty leftovers of everything to bring home.

Okay, is anyone hungry yet? What a way to start the morning off.....talking about food......good food........lol.

I was happy with my weekend and also glad I did not have the excitement you had. A snake as big around as your arm and about 7 ft. long....oh hell no. No way baby do I want to be anywhere around that. Tell Bill, I'm with him, stay away and give the nest to the snake.......ewwwwwwwwww.

We have the pool ready but I have not been able to get in it yet bacause the water is not warm enough for me. My bones can't handle the chill of the cool water. It sure is inviting to look at it although I still can't get in it. I also hung a harley davidson wind chime we had been having for years outside. I had bought a hummingbird wind chime and I love it so I decided to hang the other one also. The weather was nice with a mild breeze for us to enjoy the patio. We sit outside and enjoy all my loved one plants and some flowers I have in pots. The grandson came over and told me that I did not have a jungle yet so I told him to get tell that to his Paw. I knew that comment would get a smart answer. He told grandson if I put one more flower pot out here he is coming with the weed eater. We have no place to walk to enter from the yard onto the patio.....lol. Oh well, that is just too bad......go around where you can find a spot to get through is what I say. I love my plants.

That was my weekend......anyone else?

God Bless you and your family around all those snakes. Be careful and love ya'll.

Cajun Hugssssssssssssss,
MJC
