    Get a broom. Slam the lid. Flush. It's all in the SOPs.

    Not the time for a big bore snake load, unless you have the plumber on speed dial.

    We got a call today the soil mapping is good so now to just sign on the line. I appreciate all the input from you guys, it will be used starting in about a month to figure out where to put the house. It was 70 there today so I'm sure in a month we will be seeing the extent of what I have to deal with.

    I had a pretty funny talk with a guy yesterday down there. Apparently copperheads and rattlers are "protected" and are supposed to be "shooed off the property". I started laughing when he said that and was told ill fit right in.

    Unfortunately water moccasins are dong quite well in Florida. there has been talk of protecting the eastern diamond back at the federal level. Maybe some states are doing it.

    Jason McFadden was at work one morning in late January when he got a text message from his wife, Cassie.

    “What the crap do I do?” it read.

    That text was followed by a picture — of a rattlesnake inside a toilet at their Texas home.
    I lived in SE Asia for a few years as a kid and had this happen pretty often. One was a small-ish python (or some sort of constrictor), one was some sort of aggressive black snake, and several monitor lizards. The lizards were probably chasing the frogs which came up pretty regularly. You really wanted to check under the lid before a squat.

    That's a good looking snake to have stretched across a wall in the garage.

    In some really wet parts of the world the “drain field” is an open pipe draining into the swamp.

    Up until lately my snake gun has been a lowly 22LR revolver using CCI shot capsules. Granted I have had to be accurate and fast at times but they have accounted for quite a few Copperheads, Cotton Mouths, and Rattle Snakes with head shots the rule. Times two on the double taps to the head or even three. The .22 LR was used only because it was there more often than my .410 pump shotgun with a full choke which is ideal when it was available. Snake boots come in handy at times also. Lately I moved away from snake country.

    My latest .22LR revolver is a S&W 617-4 8 3/8".

    “The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
    – Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776
