    Just got a text message from my wife. She found a black snake in our garage. Little baby one at that. (better than the pissed off copper head I found last summer under my Fairlane...oh, btw he's dead now)
    Anyway here is a poll on what I should do when I get home.


    Keep in mind hes non poisonous, I don't mind snakes except those that pose a potential health hazard, my wife doesn't mind them either and if he hears people he books out of view, hence why I have not seen him yet and I spend about 2 hrs a night working in my garage.

    Sorry for the double post on this, not sure why it did that.

    Nope my dogs, my beagle is as dumb as a box of rocks, she'd be half eaten before she even bothered to do anything about it. Jack russel has a mouth on him that will make your head explode when he barks.
    Not sure what that is but by the name I don't think I want to

    Snakes are good, especially this time of the year with all the mice looking for a winter home.

    Never met a Jack that I cared for.
    Would consider lots of snakes as friendly.

    Let it stick around and defend the garage from infestation. Fat snakes are easier to catch than mice. :)

    Gotta get rid of it. You ever smell a cooked whole snake that crawled into a furnace for the pilot warmth, or maybe up into the engine for the warm block?

    I just pulled the furnace out of the wall and started new.

    Snakes are evil horrible creatures. If it was in my garage my .223 might finally get it's first shot... and only because I do not have any .30-06 ammo around. (Would never try a 9mm on something as evil as a snake).

    I don't think they have very many African snakes running around loose in Missouri.

    "Evil is a perspective that no longer concerns me, Brother Luther." :p

    You never know if you have an illegal exotic snake collector as a neighbor.
