Was bitten by a timber rattler on the leg when I was a kid.

Still have the scar.

Still have the nightmares.

Still have a snake phobia.

Still carry a snakebite kit in my vehicles.

Having lived in East Texas for a number of years when I was very young I was terrified by Tarantulas and Black Widows, which were very big and and intrusive in the houses there. I woke up one morning to find a large Tarantula on my pillow next to my head. I was so terrified that would not sleep in that room for months. That experience made me scared to death of spiders of any kind. But, as I grew older I learned that not all spiders would harm me and I became less afraid of even seeing one. I even had a 'hoppie' that lived in my apt and followed me around from room to room, and repelled down its silk to hang in my face while I did what I was there for, or dropped down to crawl around on my desk when I was working at my computer. I twice put the thing outside thinking it would find it a better choice, but, not long afterword it would wind up back inside and continued its keeping me 'company'. It never made any aggressive moves toward me so I just let it be. Unlike the Black Widow I found in my closet one morning. Nope. Not happenin'. I didn't feel any remorse at sending it to its spider heaven. (shudder)

Same here. They may not like me as much as I don't like them, so no reason not to think they would not harm me, even if they are not venomous. However, there was a garden snake that called my garden home and followed me around when I was tending it. It did not scare me as much as the horrid looking tomato worms with big teeth that it chattered at me what I would sometimes run across while working there. Ewww!

Most snakes don't deserve their bad reputation, because of the good that they do.  I think the Adam and Eve story ruined their reputation right from the start.  When I was a kid, I used to play with them in the ravine behind our house.  Good thing there were no rattlers.

Ain't that the truth! I respect that all types of living creatures are part of our world we share. Like in the human species, there are good ones and bad ones and it is a good ideas to know which is which. Even some of the bad ones still serve a purpose for our ecosystems.

Was in hospital once on pain killers thought hundreds were coming up the bed...it was good stuff!! All I could see were legs waving around and bodies...was out of bed sweeping them all off..the nurse wondered what the heck I was doing..

When I was young and I told someone I saw a spider, they would say to stay away from them as they were bad. So I grew up thinking all spiders were bad. As I got into my teens I learned that not all spiders were bad, just a nuisance at times.

The MONARCH BUTTERFLY at the intersection of the left vertical third and the bottom horizontal third (compositionall perfect), has an interesting iconography; In a nod to their life cycle, from egg to caterpillar to butterfly, monarchs can represent transformation and rebirth to some people. They might view a monarch sighting as a sign of upcoming change or a new direction in their life.

Morning.. speaking of snakes they have  just found some giant Tiger snakes (in the top 10 most poisonous) living on Chappel island in Bass Strait off Tassie..

They are a lot bigger than what's on our Mainland but appear to be more laid back we are told ...they are growing up to 2.4 metres and researchers came across 40 in a day...

The island is uninhabited and can only be reached by air... and that suits me just fine..

Ok, it is a little weird to me that I cannot find anything on it now. Anyway, one of our souvenir shops had a really big albino Boa. The thing was huge. They kept it in this big glass enclosure in the store.  The thing had to have been at least 15ft. Was wide too. I guess it was kind of like a mascot and an attraction.

They left the thing in its enclosure in the store (which sits on Hwy 90) during hurricane Katrina. We were of course devastated and the shop was destroyed.

They finally found the poor thing (I say that as I hate snakes) dead on the beach.

It is weird that I cannot find articles or pictures of it. People were upset yet I guess to them the snake was too big to move.

So this is a story with no available pics. Sorry.

If Gracie's personality is as beautiful as her looks, she has to be the perfect dog.

I think that people that rescue dogs deserve a special place in heaven. 

Beautiful Gracie is a rescue by Mac...

Well done, Mac.

Prepare for a challenge next weekend

I did this a number of years ago, and hope that this time it can attract some participants.  The challenge is to post photos you have taken and/or artworks you have created to match that adage "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue".

I will be posting 4 photos to illustrate those 4 topics.
