It was pinstriped? Racey...

When we lived on Guam, over 50 years ago, Mom opened the back door and a ten pound toad/frog jumped in...Mom jumped higher The screams could be heard in Hawaii.

Dawg, could your snake have been a red sided garter snake? https://www.ontarionature.org/protec...artersnake.php

Don't think so. My snake was a beautiful shiny black, with red pinstripes on both sides. Pretty certain it was some type of garter snake.

Now DH swears there's another snake in the garage. The man is giving me fits. Guess I'll have to break out the tongs again.

Bring your phone or camera.

Oh, indeed!

We have so many hiding places in the garage. And now that I found out that DH is afraid of snakes....

Heh. I have some great ammunition now. Not that I needed any, but it doesn't hurt to add to the arsenal.

This morning I made a small two potato salad.

When I made the mayonnaise it broke into a slimy mess!

That has only happened to me a couple of times and usually it is because I start to get a little too cheffy for my own good. A good dollop of humility, a splash of cold water and a couple of egg yolks was all it needed!

Dawg....I would be SOOO tempted to do the rubber snake thing...

We have several kinds of snakes out here, including the deadly Mojave Green rattler , king snakes, probably garters, and some kind of really pretty bright yellow snake. Might be a racer, not sure. We don't have much in the way of frogs or toads, maybe some of the folks with ponds have them but I'm pretty sure they've been brought in from somewhere else.

We do have these little guys, I think they're so cute. The Horned Toad, which is technically a lizard. We used to go catch them as kids, then release them. Docile little things, but when threatened, they freak out their predators by squirting blood out of their eyes at them, with precision aim.

Horned toads are cute! I've never seen one in person.
