Yep, it’s still hot which means rattlesnakes are still around. Luckily we haven’t had that many but here’s one that could have easily bitten one of us. It was right at the gate where we ALL go back and forth to the barn and shop.
My father-in-law was walking that way to check on his chickens when, all of the sudden, he was running back my way into the house. Come right back out with his gun. Of course, I ran in to get my camera! I wasn’t quick enough though to get a LIVE shot of the rattler. I got the picture right when he was getting shot!
Where were the boys? They were listening to MP3 players and napping. Good thing to because I bet you anything had they walked over there, they would NOT have been paying attention!
So anyways, there’s a sayin’ that if you hang the rattlesnake up that it will rain. Is it true? Well, it rained all day and night 2 days later so you tell me;)
