Sneaky Snake

Ruby had been crying wolf all day (“Dad, there’s a fire in the house; Dad, Henry’s bleeding, etc.”) So, when she yelled “snake!” from the living room, I didn’t hurry to investigate. Then I saw the snake behind the stereo. I jumped into action, barking orders at the kids (“Henry, get the tongs… Ruby, open the screen door!”) Once I had the thing captured, I calmed down a bit and asked Henry to take a quick picture. Then I flung her back to the wetlands where she belongs. The kids couldn’t wait to tell Kristine when she got home from the store.
