Things you don't want to hear on your end of a phone conversation:

"Hello... yea, poisonous... oh, yea, that was a coppehead, honey." On the other hand, having a nature specialist/environmental educator as your sister? Highly useful. :)

Hope was doing some stuff at home this afternoon and had the front door of her house open, but the screen door closed, but it (apparently) had a gap under it that she hadn't noticed. She comes downstairs, moves some clothes off the couch... and there's a snake, later identified as a copperhead, on my sister's couch.

Ack.

A neighbor helped her dispatch the snake to its next life, and she's fine and uninjured, for which I am very very glad. Visiting the hospital was not a scheduled part of the program tonight.

What was on the program? Burgers and Settlers with Andrew and Faith over at my parents'. That part was fun. :)

I definitely looked through the sheets of the bed last night and have moved the couch cushions this morning before sitting there. I have a feeling it will be like that for awhile around here. Snakes do not bother me in nature. When they are on my couch, we have to have words!

Exactly. Snakes in nature = cool. Snakes under my laundry = screaming heebie jeebies.

from what i've heard, we have them at work. i haven't seen any yet and i don't want to. i'm not afraid of harmless snakes, but i'll probably scream and pass out if i see a copperhead or a water moccasin.
