Snakes are NOT my Friends......

Well, today hasn't been the best day for me....just call me Debbie-Downer....but, it became much WORSE when I was met face-to-face with a large snake living in a hole in my flower bed. I didn't stick around long enough to catch his name. I had to make my exit from the flower bed before I could finish pulling my weeds. It was either me or the snake, and the snake won. Do snakes even have ears? Apparently, he didn't hear me ask politely SEVERAL times for him to leave.

Several weeks ago Alan, a mighty snake killer, had to hunt down Monte for me. Monte was a smaller snake that greeted me one morning when I was making my way out to rake leaves.

Needless to say, I'm done with snakes living in my yard. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm going to start packing a gun just to work in my yard. Surely that will teach them :) I did envoke a new rule at our household: no longer will I work in the yard without a husband at home to protect me from the evil things that reside in my yard. Haha.

Just wanted to share that with you all!

Wow!? I've been admiring many of my friends' blogs for quite some time, always contemplating on whether or not to create my own blog. No one EVER told me that setting-up a blog would be so painful and stressful! Needless to say, you are probably not viewing the "finished product" of my blog page, but atleast it's a start.

Welcome to the world of the Hancocks! :) I know Alan and I keep extremely busy schedules and sometimes neglect to keep everyone in-the-loop, so I created this place for our family updates and/or ramblings. Like I said previously, WELCOME, and we hope you check back here occasionally to see what's new in our household!
