Yeap I did Haymaker, cuz I had to go out today and put up a few wires....daggum neighbor bull is back.!!!!! I figgered he'd done been either buzzard bait, or hauled to mc donalds long ago. the one with the...ummm...well broke wanger.(Tryin to be nice, that's not what I call him) anyway, didnt see any point n puttin it all back up in the fencin shed when I'd just need it again today. Was gonna tell you gitta chain and hook onto some of my rain clouds, I'll share with ya.

Faster horses, that fence was "my ideal" n oh man at the "I'll never do this again's" he said while buildin it. I done all the brick layin and we drilled holes in that lil 1 1/4 inch pipe to put the rods down thru. Tryin to drill that many holes and keep em strait was a nightmare. Then we cut all the lil rods to length....and I hafta say I agree..we'll NEVER do anything like that again.

Oh!!! I fergot to tell ya'll, yesterday evenin when Mr. Lilly was movin the hay, I seen a big ole chicken snake under the tractor, Mr Lilly just sat there for a second, gave the snake time to do some slick maneuvers and wrap himself around the back right wheel/axel of the tractor, I'm standin on the side lines, jumpin n hoppin up n down, wavin my arms tryin to get his attention. Finally he looked at me, n I hadda do charades(sp) in the pasture.....makin snake movements with my arms.....finally he says "Where?".....I hollered ...under the tractorrrrrr....."where?"......ok.....charades again......squat down...pointin at the ground.......(ya'll dont go there lmao) cuz at first he thought I's tellin him mother nature was callin. He finally got the meanin of all my arm swingin etc. and got off the tractor. Come got the machette out of my truck and killed the snake. but it was just down right hilarious. Best part was his dismount off the tractor and the look on his face when he finally realized what it was I was tryin to tell him.

Mr. Lilly and his chicken snake. Usually you'll find em around chicken pens, they'll get in the nests and eat the eggs. Non poisonous, just make ya hurt yerself.

And yeap it's still that hot in Texas. He had been at it all day, sweatin and werkin.

I don't even like those teeny weeny garter snakes we have which don't even bite and are the "good" guys in the garden. Used to cheer when the dog would catch one and swing in around like a whip.

Around here any snake that dont have rattlers is a chicken snake. I keep some purple martin bird houses by my pens to keep the flies down,and some varmints had been raiding em,I trapped probably half a dozen coons and possums.Well one morning Im out there feeding calves and noticed the nests all torn up again,and the birds circling refusing to land,so I get a rickety ole ladder and lean it against the bird house pole,gonna see what all this ruckus is about.

Keep in mind this pole is a good 18 foot add two more for the bird house,well I inch my way up the ladder,I dont see what the big fuss is all about,IM opening doors on the nests and trying to stick the straw back in with one hand ,hang on with the other,going pretty good till I got to the one with the big ole chicken snake in it.

As soon as I open the door I stick my hand in their feeling around,hhhmmmm something cold and clamy??? what the hell!!!!!!!! bout that time Mr chicken snake woke up poked his head outa the nest and was every bit of two inches from my nose looking me square in the eyes mad because he got woke up.

First time I ever jumped bout 18 foot in my life,I run for the shed ,git my shot gun,make a long story short,I need ta git me another bird box,and a pair of wranglers....................good luck
