When I was young, about 7th grade, we lived in a house with a hole in the floor near the toilet. Don't ask me why our landlord didn't get it fixed, but it never did. Once while I was doing my business, a snake came up from under the house. It was frightening to say the least. I don't have an affinity for the creatures and that episode never helped.
I thought I'd share some snake stories, a couple of which have been in the news recently. :o)
