I was still sitting at my desk when suddenly Little Debbie, Henry Standing Bear and Big Al(ice) all started barking non-stop. So, I looked out the front window to see if someone had pulled up to our gate.
No one was parked outside our gate. Then I followed the dog's stares and about 3-4 feet away from them there was this big snake, that had come through the front yard fence and it was having a stare down with the dogs.
I wanted to holler for Tony, but he was at the Old Timer, in Medina. I also wanted to faint, but I knew I couldn't, because I needed to get our dogs inside The Cabin—fast!
So I skipped outside to the front porch and grabbed The Girls and then I yelled at Henry and told him to get inside.
With the dogs safely inside The Cabin, still barking, I grabbed my camera so I could take a picture of the snake intruder, so I could show it to Tony, because I was pretty sure that it was a rattle snake. Here's that picture. The snake is on the rocks, between and the terra-cotta pot the small two-toned pot. (It is not a very good picture.)
P.S. When Tony and I got back home from working—we mowed down the tall grass!
