Goodness Snakes Alive!!

 Yeah, I hate snakes! But I was raised in an area that copper heads were prominant. I would walk a mile down our gravel road to a wood bridge over a creek, and it'd be nothing to have to side-step 10-15 of the greasy little slick heads! Even worse, the Gov't. and Refuge one year took deer and turkey out of our local surrounding woods(cause it's gov't land) and brought in a truck load or two of copper heads and rattlers!! Cause they said they were becoming endangered, and need a safe place!! Killing either is a major FINE for a person here! Well, my yard mighta been NEXT to the woods, but it wasn't part of THEIR safe- haven! My family's motto became: The only good snake, is a dead snake! We should owe a couple Million in fines by now!! lol. So, sorry to offend any of you venom dripping vipor lovers(well, prob. not actually), but you can go hug your live copper head all you like. Meanwhile, the copper head can hug me; around my waist as a belt!!

My mom has a real phobia regarding snakes or even small ones. I will post a story about this.

A weed is any plant in my garden that I do not want to be there. <br />

Honey, you must live in the Appalachians. The government does stupid stuff here like bringing in snakes and coyotes and elk. They also thought ***** mining was o.k. too. I hate rattlers, copperheads, water snakes (moccasins) and ain't too fond of black snakes.

LOL i hate them too. I was at abirthday party one time and the theme was reptiles, I didnt know that there would be real reptiles there. I wore a shirt that said fear no evil, and on the back has a scripture saying i have given you the authority to trample snakes and scorpions... said something else too. My point is i wore the shirt and nearly puked when i saw the snakes, then i let the lady put one on my shoulders and thought i would be tough, needless to say i was sick and left early, just because they literally make me sick. So yeah i am no fan of snakes, but i did enjoy the baby
