A few of my daughters and I took advantage of the beautiful spring weather a few weeks ago and enjoyed a long walk at Jack C. Fisher Park (Owensboro).
Spring is always eagerly anticipated and warmly welcomed, but I think it was even more so this year, thanks to a particularly long, cold winter.
When we got to the part of the trail that winds beside Parrish Avenue, I saw something slithering across the path ahead of us and knew – without a doubt – what it was.
While my daughters (much, much braver than I am) hurried up to the snake to take pictures, I took a WIDE right and avoided even looking at the thing.
Apparently it was as eager to get away from us as I was to get away from it. Even though my phobia hates to admit it, they really don’t pose any harm to you if you leave them alone.
Which I fully, fully, fully, fully, fully intend to do.
