    Hi Tsaphah

    Just to let you know that I've had word from Sister Thinking. She saw your post and wished to say Hi. She asked me to pass on a message to you and said to say that "she is working hard on keeping her big mouth shut and working on staying out of trouble." (LOL....those are her words.)

    Sister Thinking wanted to say Hi to everyone else too.

    It's summer here in the land Down Under and I have seen 2 snakes already.:eek:

    Saw a baby snake- about 1 foot long - crawl out of one of my downpipes. I was weeding the garden and out of the corner of my eye, I saw something slither out of the downpipe next to me. The hair stood up on the back of my neck and I stayed absolutely still - didn't move a muscle - not one iota. The snake continued on up the back yard.

    It wasn't the size of the snake that worried me - what worried me was, that this was the baby snake, therefore that means that the mama snake is nearby.

    Just recently, I had to replace a section of the same downpipe. I tapped loudly on it a few times before I started taking it apart, to make sure there were no surprises inside.


    The second snake I came across was a bigger one - about 3 or 4 feet in length. Was sitting on the front steps and drinking a cup of tea. I spotted the snake about 8 feet away. He wasn't there when I sat down initially. I think it has come from the back of the yard and was about to turn the corner to go through the front yard when it spotted me "Whoa! There's one of those humans!"

    I said a couple of unprofessional words and managed to hold the cup of tea in my hands. The snake did a U-turn and went back the way it had come.

    As promised, here is the video of Steve Irwin and the Komodo dragons.

    Video starts at 0.40.

    "Holy smokes. That was too close. Let's follow 'em." :eek:
