    LOOK WHAT I JUST HAD TO POST ON FACEBOOK!!!!

    "

    so, Jody Gibbs made me feel FAT, so i thought id go for a run to see how far i could run before i collapsed and tried to declare that i was asthmatic, having a stroke and simultaneous heart attack... i made it 2/3 of a mile (going round 1/3 mile blocks) swung back by the house to drop the dog off as he was 1/8 of a lap behind me, and he was just pooping out (hes recently been seen for bad back issues) so i didnt wanna poop him out. i thought "i can keep going! Stacey Booth would tell me "dropping gonzo off is not an excuse to stop running!" so quick swing by the house... in the dark... step on something while trying to get into the door.. move my foot back to see what it is.. cant see while ducking down.. turn on phone light.. SNAKE LUNGES AT THE PHONE LIGHT IN MY HAND! I STEPPED ON A 4' LONG SNAKE AND IT WAS LUNGING AT ME IN THE DARK FOR A GOOD 15 SECONDS BEFORE I FINALLY GOT THE LIGHT ON!!!!!!! sorry fitness folks... but thats enuf of an excuse for me to not step back outside until daylight!!! im sure according to my heart rate, i ran an extra 4 miles... so im good to go!

    "



    *dies*

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Did you hear a rattle Eliot? Where I grew up (Tucson), if you heard a rattle, it was time to be very very still (or run like hell). Otherwise, snakes weren't much to worry about...

    Glad you got your heart rate up though!

    Lol no. I'm pretty sure it was a small boa. Or something that looks like a boa. Same head shape and general pattern and body proportions

    you could take up "snake" photography and learn to love them

    was it a small Boa or a baby "big' Boa and how long did you say it was - sounds a bit "fishy" to me

    Methinks it was actually a 12 inch garter snake, and darkness / terror may have inflated the signal before it got to poor Eliot's brain. (wink)

    The one that we have "nesting" in our barn are AT LEAST 3 metres, (sorry 10 feet), long and they swallow birds whole ……. but apart from that they seem friendly
