Not A Water Leak

>> Sunday, October 19, 2008

HoneyHusband was out on the porch and thought he heard water running in a faucet. He checked all over and even turned off the water pump. Still hearing the noise, he tore a board out of the deck siding to find what was making the sound.  Yikes!  Not a water leak at all! The cat was harassing this guy. Isn't life in the country wonderful?

(It's a (now dead) rattlesnake, for those of you fortunate enough to not have them around)

HoneyHusband got this kill. I couldn't believe with all the noise and activity we usually make it didn't scare it off.

We've found them in the yard before, and quite close to the house but it's particularly yucky to find it has been in the yard and is now *under the porch*! . They are just fearsome creatures, that's all I can say.
