Rattler In a Good Mood

Rondezvous with death
You hear the rattle warning
Move back so slowly
One strike, no getting away-
Snake chose to be nice today.

    Yeah, no kidding. I don't mess with "hot" (venomous) snakes. I don't have a death wish.

    That was a close call !! (Our dog was bitten on the nose by a rattler last summer.....he was pretty darn sick..no joke!! ) We had $900 dollars on vet hospital bills...and he's fine today...thank goodness) But stay away from rattle snakes..especially the young ones!!
