I'm so glad you could stop by. This is my personal blog of daily life and my journey through life. You will find a strong emphasis on family and friends as well as finding my ancestors through genealogy. Unlike my other blogs this blog is more of a catch-all so any topic is fair game.

The Cottonmouth

The Cottonmouth Snake
May 12, 2013

We spent most of May at our vacation home in sunny Florida.  As is customary, I go for a golf cart ride around our resort after dinner.  There are many interconnecting small lakes and ponds so there is an abundance of wildlife.  One evening, my husband and I decided to take the ride together.  A few roads from our house we spotted a snake.  I'm not fond of snakes by any stretch of the imagination especially any larger than about six inches long.  I immediately knew this was a poisonous snake but wanted a picture anyway.  Let me tell you, it was hard for me to get a picture because I was shaking, hoping we would not spook it enough that it would strike.  The picture was taken from inside the golf cart about twelve feet away from the almost four foot long cottonmouth snake.  Needless to say we gave this snake the respect it deserved, took our pictures then scurried off looking for more photo opportunities!

Bringing Back Wordless Wednesday

I have been in a blogging funk since the end of 2012.  As a result, I have not been blogging as much as I once was.  It's time to change that!  I am going to bring back Wordless Wednesday posting.  As per my previous style for these posts, they generally consist of a photo that has some meaning to me along with a short caption and date the photo was taken.  Sometimes I use a cartoon but not very often.  So, look for those posts starting tomorrow...
