I'm not frightened of snakes as some folks are, but if a bee comes near, then I scream like a girl and freak-out. You see, I'm allergic to bee stings and swell up like a pumpkin and it's not even Halloween. Anyway, the Black Rat Snake is non-venomous and they are pretty docile unless you corner them.
The neighbor stayed for about ten minutes before slithering off into the bushes. I'm guessing it was lunch time and something juicy was on the menu.
Check-out my vintage style maps that I paint of lakes, rivers, and bays. These maps make great gifts for the lake house owner, lake lover, or fisherman. I have over two hundred on my website that can be purchased right from the site, or I can do custom and personalized lake, river or bay maps, too. If you would like to see more and read about my treasured maps go to LeoMaps.com.
As you can see, my maps make a great gift. To see more of my work click here www.LeoLakes.com.
