BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Sassy Says

Let us permit nature to have her way.
 She understands her business better than we do.
~Michel de Montaigne


Mom looked out the kitchen window
and saw this on the garage roof!

Sneaky Black Snake was headed to the Northern Cardinals' nest in the pyracantha.

Dad was successful in sending the snake in another direction this time,
but I fear the eggs' days are numbered.

Yes, we are all watching our step when out in the yard!

(Hey Ina, aren't you glad you live in Alaska w/ no snakes?)


Mom apologizes for being MIA from commenting on blogs. Since she got a good Dr.'s report she has been trying to do 3 weeks' worth of yardwork and spring cleaning in 3 days.
Hopefully, she'll get caught up soon.

Actually we like snakes but mostly cute little green ones that catch insects.

Okay, one word...YIKES!!!! I've seen snakes in the trees, but never on the roof!!! THANKS for giving me yet another place to worry about the being and for reminding me again of why anyone who lives in Alaska has it made!!! Maybe I should move back there!! :-)))

Gloria said...

Oh gross me out! That slithery thing is much worse than the one that was in my house!!!!!

That is a huge snake! I hope the cardinals can survive! Sassy is right about nature, but some of it is still sad. SH

Kathy said...

Yes, Mother Nature can be harsh on human terms!
Be careful, don't over do it! I know the feeling of wanting to get things done, but...
Hugs, K

Mango said...

I am beside myself afraid of that snake. It is so huge I think it could be at your house and mine at the same time! That is why one should live where the ground freezes solid in the winter.

Gizzy's Mom said...

I am VERY glad I never had a snake THAT long on MY roof.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

That looks like the black snakes around here! I've never seen one crawling up my roof before though! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

I'm so happy to read that you're feeling so much better. I missed a few posts, and just read about that. Yay!

That's an impressive snake! I'd be stepping carefully in the yard right now too!

I like the quote about nature.

Maggie Mae said...

Whoa, that was some snake on the roof. I am happy we don't have those where I live. If my mom ever saw something like that on our roof we would probably have to move. :)

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Remington said...

Okay THAT would be very scary to have on our house!

Heather and Ellie said...

Whoa....that is quite the snake! Very pretty. We don't get snakes like that here.

It looks huge...is it really that big??

Dory and the Mama said...

I would like snakes a lot better if they didn't eat bird eggs.

Samantha said...

Oh, so glad you are feeling better enough to do all that garden work - wow! GOOD spy/eye out to catch that snake! That was a big one, with a big appetite no doubt - poor birds. (Worry not about the blogs!) Hugs to the doggehs!

Priscilla said...

Oh no, we never like those cold-blooded, skin-shedded, slimy and sneaky snakes. Glad your dad managed to get rid of it at last. Phew!!!

glenda said...

Oh my word! I was unaware snakes would crawl up a roof. You were in the right place at the right time to capture this shot and also to save the eggs. (at least for this time)

kissa-bull said...

Hi Kit,
WE have them here too. All the bird houses we have put up now have squirrel guard on them b/c it keeps the snakes away too. I had one on my patio yesterday. A snake that is!!!! lol
I miss when we don't talk everyday.

Yikes...I would've screamed and screamed to see that snake on my roof! Needless to say, I am afraid of snakes and it sounds like you are braver than I am!
I am glad you are feeling much better after the appendectomy and I am sure your pups are taking good care of you as you recover!

Benny and Lily said...

Hi there new friends thank you for stopping by our blog. We decided to answer your question about our blog title tomorrow, Sunday. That snake is frightening..BOL

Yikes - Mom hates snakes but TD is a great snake hunter. Hope that one is long gone from the little eggs.

That is one HUGE snake!


Twix said...

OMD! That is one super long snake! It gives Mom the shivers. Do you worry about them getting in your house at all? Mom's grandma used to have one that stayed in her basement and she just left him there because he took care of the mice!
Happy Mother's Day! And good to hear you are doing better but don't push it you still need to rest.
