Well, farm living sure can have its adventurous. Yesterday, Chip (my husband's uncle) killed a 4 foot water moccasin in his yard. Normally, snakes aren't messed with on the farm. But, moccasins are just too aggressive - especially when they're around the house. It was a huge snake. I'm only 4 foot 10, so this snake was almost as long as me. That's pretty big for a water moccasin.
John hates snakes. Since he grew up on the farm, I find this very funny. But, he can't stand them. He's actually bought Snake-Away (which I think is just a gimmick) to spread around the house. It's just crushed up moth balls, but it makes him feel better. Whatever works for him.
