Hubby was out do some minor work on the jon boat.I told him to watch out for snakes hideing under the shed in all that junk he stored over the years. Told him to roll up his britches in his socks so a snake could'nt crawl up there and bit him 15 times before he could get it out. Now he's affraid to work on boat,he is affraid of snakes. I respect them but don't have that kind of fear.Just the thought of one runnign up his legs was horrifing to him. I grew up in Stone Mountain Ga with snakes and swam with them in our 10 acre lake.Snakes kill rats and other varmits too.He grew up at the beach in SCarolina. What wildlife do you have to look out for where you live?
