We call him the Snake Slayer

There was a snake in MY GARAGE last week.
Uh huh
About 2 feet away from where I was sitting minutes before it was found
We had just cleaned up the bikes and toys as the rain started.
I sat down to fold a little laundry and the little man asked if he could go in the garage to draw on the chalkboard.
I said sure.
A few minutes later I hear BIG GIRL screaming at the other kids.
Somewhere in between the screams I heard "SNAKE".
I jumped up and ran but before I did that I yelled "SHUT THE DOOR!"
(this time it was OK to yell!)
Um, I didn't want that snake getting in MY HOUSE.

We then went out the front door towards the garage and proceeded to toss things where the snake was.
Let's see...
We tossed a rake.
We tossed a shoe.
We even tossed a chair.
The snake did not budge.
I was determined not to let that snake get out of my sight.
So, what did we do?
We waited.
We waited and we watched.
We waited and we watched until my husband got home from work.
(I won't even tell you that we waited and watched for ONE HOUR. Nah, you would probably think I was crazy. OH, and I won't tell you that it was raining either.)
Woo Hoo! Daddy finally arrived.
He jumped out of the car and grabbed the snake with his bare hands.
After swinging it around a few times over his head, he then proceeded to squeeze the life out of it.
You don't believe me?
Ok, it was more like he grabbed the closest thing around which happened to be a VERY DULL SHOVEL and then he did a little choppy chop on that ICKY thing.
Hey, the kids were very impressed!
But before tossing it in the nearest ditch I did what any good blogger would have done . . .
I yelled out :
"WAIT!" "I need a picture."
Check out my hunky hero and his kill....

Heck yeah, I am so blogging this!

I would have had to put my house on the market and move away immediately- I dont do snakes. I had to squint my eyes so that I didn't see your photo clearly :) Glad you have a snake slayer! He sounds like a keeper.

I don't think your crazy. I would have done the same thing. Snakes are my enemy.

That is friggin funny. I'm not a huge fan of snakes either but I don't think I could have waited him out. lol

snakes dont scare me actually. I would have just pushed it out of the garage.

Is it venemous?

Wow, that creeps me out just reading about it. No snakes for me please! Glad your hubby was able to take care of it.

i would have been right in there trying to catch him if my kids didnt first ! We raised snakes for years and years so my kids are not scared of them. Do you know what kind of snake it was ?

Hope you have a great day

I'm also wondering what kind of snake it was. I have no idea what I would do. We have rattlesnakes all over the place here in AZ. Growing up, we'd just grab a pistol and shoot em in the head. (Yes, I come from THAT kind of family). However, if I were to do that now, I think my neighbors would freak, and I'd end up in trouble with the police! =)
