My boy Matt made an interesting observation today...everybody hates spiders or snakes....or both. Is that true? In my family, it is. Matt hates snakes as does Marie Anne. Michelle hates both. I get freaked out...I mean 'scream like a school girl' freaked out...by spiders. Clearly, I'm ok with snakes. I had a friendly encounter with one today. As Marie Anne (MAJ) was mowing the lawn I hear, "Jon! A snake!" I knew what I had to do. Again, I come to the rescue saving the fair maiden from the serpent.
