Nancy won't let me take her picture! LOL. She's soooo shy!!! Anyway I had a fish taco and a spinach/cheese tamale that were WONDERFUL
Joann had a margarita she loved, Dee and Kathy had the tortilla soup that they loved! Nancy took home some tamales for Dave. Nice lunch. Good time.

So Tuesday when I was in the kitchen fixing dinner I looked out and saw Bruiser with a snake in his mouth. I yelled and yelled "NO NO NO" and went running outside. He dropped the snake in the grass (LOL!) and was up on the porch. I picked up the snake and put it through the lattice under the porch so Bruiser couldn't get him again. Then I took the Bruise in the house. I am not sure what kind of snake it was. Looked something like this... not quite as big...
.... and not as robust as this one.....
It wasn't a garter snake, they are very colorful, it was gray and smooth and about 18" long..... there is a type of boa up here and it could have been a baby one.
I was going to cook dinner but still too full from lunch. Just chilled..... chair, wine, and TV.
Now, I am going to attempt to save this and post it if AOL cooperates and my computer is behaving. Sigh...............
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.
