“After all who wants to sound like a croaking frog?”
By Betty Moore
Great snakes alive! That’s what I said! My husband was crawling around in an open well house last week when he was almost eyeball to eyeball with a black snake. Needless to say it was quite a shock for both man and snake! The snake came out the loser. My daughter teased her daddy if he and the snake stuck their tongues out at each other? I don’t know. He gave no reply. It just goes to show that apparently snakes don’t get all into the ground or hid away like I would have thought for cold weather.

There has been much sickness in our area. I was told that Rachel Thurmond is on the sick list. I hope that each of you will soon be better. Beverly Bentley has been sick with the congestion that has gone on. I have bronchitis. I didn’t get everybody called. When your throat feels scrubby you don’t want to talk too much. After all who wants to sound like a croaking frog?
I mentioned earlier about the snake that my husband encountered. I remember that one day recently a big fat mosquito landed on my arm. And it was not an especially warm day. If that is an indication there might be a mosquito problem in the summer. We need to check for standing water but we know of none.
Save your news for me for next week. Hopefully I will be well by then.
