And on the 8th Day, God Created Tall Boots

And this is why those tall boots are so important…

 

My daughter and I shot this little video during our nature walk yesterday (watch the tree trunk).  It’s interesting at a distance, but we maintain a firm rule on the distant location requirement.

Save your nonvenomous speeches.  That may be true in this case (and it looks like an eastern coachwhip so it probably is harmless to everything but our sanity), but we have multiple venomous varieties as well.

One last little personal note to my new tree-climbing pal the snake – What the heck dude???  Couldn’t you have just stayed on the ground like every other snake that still managed to creep us out without scaling large stationary objects that we also like to scale?  Why show off those mad climbing skillz?  You have made trees terrifying for me.  Trees dammit!  You know – those overgrown plants that made me so very happy up until the exact moment you came along!  Now every time a branch grazes my arm in the woods, I am going to react like I’m the star in a dorky live reenactment of the tomb scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Thanksssss.  Jo
