Opening Day And A Snake On The Trail!

Today is opening day for the Hagerstown KOA Campground.  We are having a yard sale today and tomorrow.  We have a lot of gift shop items, baby clothes and toys, camp supplies and so much more for sale.

Today is a very warm day with temperatures in the low 80’s.  It almost feels hot outside.  I think this weekend we will be having rain and some normal temperatures for this time of the year.

The other day, Jodie and I went to the C & O Canal to do some serious  walking.  I had my I tunes on and getting into my fast stride.  All of a sudden, Jodie jumped back frightened to death.  Low and behold there was a fairly large black snake in the middle of the trail, poised to strike.  What did I do? I turned around to face the other way and ran like a bat out of hell. I’m such a sissy.  I don’t know why, but I’m just terrified of snakes, even the good ones, obviously, Jodie is just as  terrified as I am.

After turning around to walk the other way, we walked for about a mile. When we walked back to the car, a man had a black snake on a stick and put the snake in the trunk of his car. I’m not sure if was the same snake, but it was a good size snake and he did not seem happy at all.


Who in the world would want to put a snake in the trunk of their car???

Just thinking about that darn snake gives me the heebie jeebies.
Thanks for reading, life is good...........

Unless that snake was dead when he put it in his trunk or into a container he's nuts. Snakes can squeeze through the tightest of openings and he could end up having a visitor while driving down the road.

Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.
