Thank You Lord for another day. Hi everyone, I arose this morning before the rooster even woke up. I was feeling all chipper and full of vigor......no not vinegar...vigor. I decided Levi and I, my trusted companion, the other one besides Judi, would take a walk down to the creek and look at the waterfall and see if the beavers had dammed the creek up. Away we went, Levi looking around and running ahead of me and myself just looking around enjoying what Mother Nature has provided us with. I felt great, the walk down to the imfamous Big Boy Washhole was a breeze. Walking down the shady path through the woods, the cool morning breeze blowing in my face, thinking what a wonderful day it is. But Hark, what did I hear, my trusty companion barking at the top of his lungs. Curiously i walked over to see what had Mr Levi's undivided attention. OH CRAP, a diamond back rattlesnake was curled up there, sunning himself on an old log. After grabbing my companion and making him back off I immediately made haste to my journey back to the top of Poverty Hill. My journey along the mornings nature visit was over, I'd had all the nature I wanted for one day. God made all creatures, but there's some we could've done without.
Not that I was scared or anything like that, it's just that it doesn't take me long to look at a snake.....(laffin)right, I was scared crapless. After about 8 rest stops coming back up the hill I finally made it back up on Poverty Hill. I'm thinking the walk up the hill has finished me for the day, I'm totally exhausted, I think after i clean out my britches, I'll take a nap. Anyway yall have a nice day, and I'll be looking for yall around the PHA websites. Waving to everyone from high atop Poverty Hill, thanks for stopping by.
