On with "part three".
Today, we'll show you some of the wildlife creatures we encountered..plus, a bonus wildlife story of my own, but...you'll have to wait till the end for that little hilarious treat...you won't want to miss it, though, I wish I would have right about now.
First we happened to stumble upon this cool looking bird who's feathers actually change colors when the sun hit them, we named him Fabio because he was oh, so full of his handsome self....
As good looking, I'm too cool for you, birds go...Fabio turned his beak at us plain looking humans and got himself on outta there, back to his nest of adoring girlie color changing birds, I'm sure.
Next we found this bunch...a group of fun loving, but extremely hungry herrons. They can walk the walk..but if your not tossing crackers their way...they don't do much of talkin' the talk.
BTW...we had nothing on us but some Double Bubble Watermelon bubble gum and sour Altoids...so this herron family wasn't into us much...
Crossing over a bridge these two spotted us, we prompty named them "Crush" and "Squirt" and I swear it looked like Squirt was saying to Crush..
"Dude..look at those humans...sweeeeeeet"...
Next, Kolin spotted this bunch...they were loud and wild party animal, waddely type of bird...
They were birds with "Tudes"..attitudes that is...
And then, that's when I spotted this beaut...a very rare type bird who, when provoked, can be even more loud, more faster, and more wild then the wild bird bunch....
Prepare yourself to be facinated by the unbelievable...
Try not to fall off your chairs as I show off this rare phenomenom..
And lastly..let's recap one more time before I lay it rest....my scaley friend and yours too..
And now, a wildlife story of a personal nature...Ahem...here we go...
Yesterday, as some of you know was Kody's "book fair" day at school.
We were driving home, as I was slowly getting over the shock of writing out a $20.00 check for two small, softcover books, we were coming down our road when we spotted the most beautiful red corn snake sunning itself right smack dab in the middle of our road.
Karl was driving and I was still twitching from sticker shock.
Right then and there we saw a huge, super sized city truck full of men driving right towards this awesome snake.
Can any of you guess where I'm going with this?
I'll bet you can. :0/
Karl puts the van in park, and runs out, grabs a piece of wood, or a stick or something and tries to rescue that snake...saving it's life from the wheels of a city truck, I'm sure.
The snake is now slithering into a nice grassy spot.
Reptile Man is determined to make it our next pet.
Snake Dude is not happy about this and puts up a fight by snapping away at Reptile Man.
City truck is now right over us with three city men staring like we have done gone and lost our minds.
I smile politley.
Kody, laughing his fool butt off is encouraging Reptile Man byyelling out, through an dopen window "Catch it Psycho Dad!!!!!!".
Reptile Man catches Snake Dude and firmly but gentley calms him down.
Snake Dude suddenly looks like a docile pet and not the raving wild beast that he was 30 seconds ago.
Reptile Man walks over to the van where I still sit in the passenger seat.
Reptile Man doesn't look real good and that's when I realize he is having a full out asthma attack right there in the middle of the street holding a huge reddish color corn snake with big teeth.
Kody and I stumble around and find his inhaler, flip the AC on full blast and don't you just know...Reptile Man gets back into the drivers seat to which I do my wifely duty and suggest I drive...cuz ther ain't no damn way I'm holding on to that slithering, toothy thing.
So....we get home, which was only three houses down, get inside and put Snake Dude which Reptile Man had already, by now, named "Roadkill" in a spare snake tank with a top that didn't quite lock up real tight.
So...he put some heavy things on top...like two big ole' bottle of BB's.
As the day went on, I would watch Reptile man sitting in his computer seat, watching Roadkill, who was curled up in that tank carefully contimplating his great escape.
I am one with wildlife..I knew what he was thinking.
The rest of the day went by reasonable uneventful.
Then we all woke up this morning.
We all woke up this morning to an empty snake tank.
As I type this, somewhere in this home there is a 5 foot corn snake hiding and I am sure laughing all the way into some dark, warm hiding spot, which I am surer then sure..I will be the one to accidently stumble upon and find.
You'll know when I find it...you'll be able to tell by the scream heard round the world.
I have to go now and turn on all the lights and make alot of noise.
I have to go hide in a brightly lit area, close to a phone.
I have to crawl back in bed and call my Mom.
On second thought...she's afraid of wild slithery things even worse then me, never mind.
I'm still trying to get over almost becoming an appitizer for a gator, how am I supposed to deal with this?
I'm going to Starbucks right now.
Never mind, I'm still in my PJ's.
Oh wait..they have drive thru.
I'm outta here.
Thank you for your support in this.
I love ya'all!!
Have a great day!!!!
PS. For the record...docile, family pet slithery things I am fine with.
Wild ones that attack my man...not so fine with. :0)
