Mowing Rain Out

Sunday is lawn mowing day or, as Daddy calls it, the day Rachel encourages Mr. Murphy to sit outside and get some fresh air.  Well, right now, its lightening and pouring (yep, the same kind of storm that caused my beloved Gators to cancel their home opener).  I'd seen the weather report yesterday morning, however, so kind of expected this.  Sadly, for Mr. Murphy that is, I took care of the lawn yesterday.  Daddy made a smart ass remark about Mr. Murphy being disappointed.  I quipped back that he could be a good neighbor and go tell him. 

A little later, I was mowing against the neighbors chain link fence.  I thought it odd the way a weed had grown into the fence but paid it no further mind.  When I was about two inches from the weed, I noticed that the weed was moving . . . and that it wasn't a weed!!!

I peed my pants!!!


  1. I would have peed my pants too!

  2. Omg!! I had an encounter myself this weekend and very nearly had the same reaction! Except the snake was crawling down my door frame! I jumped up and hit it with a stick when it tried to slide under my door. I've never done that before. Thankfully I scared it off! I still shake thinking about it. I HATE SNAKES!

  3. Poor Mr Murphy. :-( lol I don't like snakes either.
