dear ms b-you are my hero

we have a good friend that would definitely not like this picture
she would probably say what awful grandparents you are
letting ms b hold that snake

im sure she wont be able to sleep tonight thinking about that snake
this friend is the one we gave a christmas present one time
a snake aquarium cage wrapped for christmas
inside was a realistic fake snake
the kind if you didnt know it wasnt real and if you had this fear of snakes .........well you can just imagine the scene that christmas evening at the present opening event
we even have it on video

now one of the things that i want in dealing with you ms b
is for you to have a love of  nature and not fear it
rolly pollys

add snakes to that list

this picture was from the local museum one day last week when your
other not my wife she grandmother brought you for a tour of the museum
i wonder if thats her grandmother handing you that snake
i know for sure it wasnt my wife she
guarantee it

was i ever a proud granddaddy to see you holding that snake
slithering around in your hands and arms

of course i recognized that snake
a rosy boa
i use to have one myself
in fact i had it when my wife she and i were dating
its the one that had to disappear when we got married
my wife she tolerated it before we got married
didnt tolerate it afterwards

we guys know how that works
it did

i have no fear of snakes but i do respect them
having gone out rattlesnake catching while in college

several times at the country n i would use my homemade snake catcher to snatch a slithering rattlesnake that appeared on our property replacing it over my property fencing as a donation to my neighbors
dont worry they had a hundred acres with nothing but nature on it
i never let my wife she know when i did that

another time a large big ole rat snake sat on the top of our water tank sunning himself looking down on my wife she as she soaked in the hot tub butted up against that tank
i never let her know about that one either

ms b sometimes in a marriage you have to keep things to yourself
its best if you do that

now this rosy boa makes a great pet for kids and grandmothers
they are friendly and easy to play with

as i look around our condo i have located a few sites that an aquarium
for snakes could easily fit
then ms b when you come over
well you could take your rosy boa out and play with it
with my wife she not being home of course
we dont have to tell anyone
it will be our secret

i guess ill have to check those hoa regulations to see if snake pets
are allowed

ms b
im glad you were exposed to snakes and will develop no fear of them

next on the list
is spiders

ms b most spiders are the good guys
i rarely ever remove one if i see one
especially in my garden

maybe ill catch one for you to hold
like you did that rosy boa

you are reaching hero status with me
