Last Friday we had a two foot rattler on our plant site. On Sunday
a work crew killed two about 10 yards from our plant. We are in Bakersfield Ca.

Per wine:
Mad Dog 20-20, vintage no older than forty-eight hours, served at room temperature, and still wrapped in the brown paper bag it came in.

Bon appetit!
Yes I skinned it out first and as far as the Mad Dog, that is a mighty fine wine!

I knew as soon as I saw the canned soup in the recipe that you're used to the very best, so I recommended accordingly...

I am terrified of snakes. I would have had a for sale sign up faster than a person can blink after the first sighting of a snake. You are a brave person. We live in North East Texas and the snakes here & I have an agreement. They stay out of my territory & I stay out of their's. So far it has worked. lol

I hope the evil vermin won't eat the ignition wires out of my truck.

Dinners at 5... anyone know what wine goes with rattlesnake?
Symphony goes very well. Spicy and sweet.

I'm surprised ranger Steve hasn't been in here as he is a forum member....WWW.desertbandana.com. He was a desert ranger before life made him retire.

Does Ranger Steve have a good collection of Rattlesnake recipes?

I hate snakes. My instinct when I see a snake is to kill it!

Funny snake story:

I was camped in Eastern Washington with my Son/Grandkids and had set up a couple of "play tents" for the kids. We came back from a hike and my Granddaughter told us that there was "a big snake" curled up on the pillow in her tent! Sure enough, there was- but I could tell right away it wasn't a rattler. (Turned out to be a bull snake- not venomous but can inflict a nasty bite if it wants to). It slithered out of the tent and clearly only wanted to escape and I advised withdrawal to allow it to do so...

But My Son the Hero had by then armed himself with a stick and got between the snake and escape, forcing it to rear up and hiss at the "weapon" he was sticking in its face while hollering "It's AGGRESSIVE!!!! SEE?!?!?!?! "

Even the kids had to laugh, my Granddaughter saying "But, Dad- YOU'RE the one that's trying to start something!"

My instinct when I see a snake is to appreciate its role in the web of life, helping control rodents. Also, they are very beautiful and remind me of the age of reptiles millions of years ago.

If there are any snakes out here, they'd better have on parkas and snow boots.
