another snake story, new car keys

my wife she had another snake story but she doesnt know about it until she reads todays blog
might be in trouble after she reads this one

recently she was in the hot tub -a picture of hot tub should be in this posting-enjoying a relaxing soaking     was in the yard doing my ranch aerobics(my form of exercise-put tools in wrong places so that have to walk across an acre to get them when i need them-)
glanced up at the deck where our movie star rainwater tank(was in a movie made in austin-the tanks are painted to look like corroded metal chemical tanks and we have kept them in their original state-)
there on the top of the tank was a very large snake coiled up
this tank is about 2 feet from where my wife she is enjoying her soak in the hot tub
ignorance is bliss

the snake saw me approaching and fell down onto our rosemary bush and was gone
never could find him
thank goodness he did not go the wrong way or my wife she
would have been streaking across our yard if she did not have a heart attack first

we recently bought a new toyota yaris      am so happy as we have old school keys
no clicker to open car doors     no clicker to push if you sit in car too long and:

once got locked in a car in hot sun      the clicker would not work    the doors would not open     got real hot    my son was asleep in the house but would not answer his cell phone     got hotter     started to figure out ways to break out of the car
started to call 911 but then the battery ran down completely    
when it died the doors 
suddenly were able to be opened    whew!!

have a fear of running off the road into a body of water   if you have electronic key the doors wont open until you get completely under water then you can open the door
dont want to wait that long    want to get out of there fast

if have an old school key and manual window handles then you can just roll down the window
or open the door and escape
