If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....
me at yahoo dot com
this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Hi there! The old snake wrangler here. Not really! Can you say,' freaked out!'
I was out at our church running an errand when I happen to look down at the foot of the door I'd just walked through a couple of time already when I noticed a rather too thick of a tail to be a lizard. "Please let it be a lizard! Please let it be a lizard," I babbled as I was sure it wasn't. 
Of course I wasn't dressed for hunting snakes.

This is my normal attire for hunting critters.
Anyway, back to my dilemma.
As you could probably guess, there was no one, I mean, no one around to help me. So I grabbed the wasp spray thinking.....well, I wasn't really thinking very much at this point. I gave the snake two cans worth of the spray while chanting, "Please slither away," over and over. But alas, he didn't get that message. On two the next solution.....call everybody to help.
Wouldn't you know but the secretary was busy, my cousins had literally gone fishing, the neighbors were, I'm thinking hiding in their homes or something because absolutely no one was about.
I did manage to find a couple of garden tools but by this time, said snake had managed to wedge himself between two very heavy planters.
Praise be!!!! Two guys came along and I managed to flag them down and together we came up with a plan to slay the snake. Basically they told me to stand back and they'd handle things! That was all I need to hear. In a matter of moments the snake was dispatched as I watch on with frayed nerves. 
I actually thought about having a bit of Communion wine to steady my nerves.
No really!!
I thanked the guys profusely and offered them bottles of water before they went on their way. I did come home and took a couple of aspirin a little while ago.  I think I'll need a nap as well.....sigh!!
BTW, I am unable to respond your comments at this time. Blogger or someone needs to fix that situation but please know that I read & appreciate every comment!!

Dang blogger. I'm monitoring comments on my dashboard. Then I get a list of comments that I approved and every single one says they are a no reply blogger...I know they are not. But I'm trying to respond when pertinent if I have a blog friend's email address.

OMGOSH!! I bust out laughing when I saw your hunter picture....I'm still giggling! Thank you!
I hate snakes. I'm pretty sure there are no poisonous snakes in my area, but they do occasionally go into the pond looking for dinner. If I see 'em, I try to get 'em. Sorry, but I just cannot think of one thing a snake is good for except snake skin leather.

Be Well and keep away from them critters.
xx, Carol

Gotta love your snake hunting outfit! So glad that a couple of heroes came along to rescue you.

I don't like snakes either. It is a good thing some guys came along to rescue you.
Do you think you could put on your snake hunting outfit and let me hire you to hunt out a snake? I saw a hugh one outside this morning. He was about 6 feet long and as big around as my fist. I tried to get hubby to kill him but he kept saying he wouldn't hurt me. The snake wasn't looking at him though. It watched every move I made. I decided to return to inside the house where it was safe.
Enjoy your weekend.
