DBA - please add me tentatively to the list for the get together. And thanks to all the TX'ers who posted the wonderful photos! It's such a treat to see them. I sure can identify with the 'snake lady'. We recently had one cooling itself on the outside window ledge of our living room and the cat would jump up on the inside ledge and swipe at it. The snake would strike and bounce it's nose off the glass, the cat would run and then come back. Since I know next to zilch about snakes other than rattlers are NOT good to meet up with, and DH knows even less, I called and a Deputy came out and looked and told me it was an aggressive but non-venomous chicken snake. I have no chickens, not even any kooties that I know of, so am thinking he might have been on a rest stop after visiting a neighbor's coop up the road a ways. Anyway, the snake was about 4 ft (which translates to about 10 in my mind) and not happy with the human gawkers and eventually dropped off the ledge and porch and disappeared. We do have other snakes around the pond but they usually disappear once we mow or the horses get more active.
On another subject - is the get together easy to get to? I've never been to FTW and would be coming on I-30 from east.
Good week to y'all.
