After school and some homework, Abbott headed to the neighbor’s, to see if he could play. Shortly thereafter, I heard him running through the house, shouting, ‘I’m grabbing my camera! (Neighbor) just spotted a snake and is keeping his eye on it until I come back.’ A couple of minutes later, I ambled out the door in their general direction; all three (my two plus neighbor) kids at that point were running around the neighbor’s yard looking for the snake that had apparently slithered away. They wanted to know what snakes eat, in order to lure and trap one. I told them I had no idea, and then wondered if that is something I ought to know. In they came to google search about snake diets, and disappeared again moments later. Alexi told me, long ago, there are no poisonous snakes in Western Washington so I guess I’m going to go with that, and continue enjoying this sunny late summer afternoon silence.
