Lamb61, you get use to snakes . We have a few rules that help though. Always watch where your walking, never put your hands where you cant see, check under the patio furniture cushion before you sit down , always watch out when you
open the barbecue pit lid, make lots of noise if you walk in the yard at night, look behind the frog before you catch him with your hand,( something else may have the same idea), check your fish stringer often , ( snakes love helpless fish ) , never lift up something in the yard without expecting mr no neck to be underneath, and never never pick black berries without a stick to poke around in the vines first. Other than that, your pretty safe. There are only three snakes you need to worry about
. Moccasins , copper heads , and rattlers. Although the coral snake is poisonous it lacks fangs and can only bite if given time to chew on you a while , so dont sleep where he can crawl up next to you and gnaw on your earlobe . If you know the snakes that are poisonous you dont have to worry about
the hundreds that aren't . Now , doesn't that put your mind at ease ?
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
