Cutie Patootie

Katie's Friend
Please notice that you can click on Snakey's photo and see it much bigger for the full effect of his ginormous forked tongue! Also notice that Ranger Tracy accidentally, in trying to get him out from under the fridge, set the fridge down on his poor fat body and indented it slightly... it can be seen in his curvy part near his head. I didn't mean to though and I was rather unhappy that I might have hurt him. However, once outside, he seemed just fine. Hopefully there was no internal damage. I don't think the fridge was totally on him... just a bit.
My family would be amazed that I didn't freak out... that I actually went to help get the snake out on my own... I could have just come home. But I didn't.
And I petted that snake at work recently too.

My sister knows about my blog now. No more pictures of my hiney for you peeps.
: )

Your pics came out so good! Don't worry--I won't call you for spider issues. I'll just move out of my house if a giant spider moves in.

I am so scared of snakes! You are very brave!

Maki said...

Should we all wave and say hi to your sis?

You're my hero, by the way. I'll handle insects, you take on the snakes that eat them.

KK: My dad killed a HUMONGOUS tarantula in my backyard when I was a kid. I thought it was gonna kill my dogs... yeah, right. It was the size of a dinner plate. SERIOUSLY.
He killed it... with an axe.

IHT: I don't know about VERY. Ask Katie... I wasn't without a bit of a jumpy/squealy moment.

M: I'm not sure she is looking really. Not after I screamed bloody murder for her to close the window...

Tom said...

Oh come on, she's your sister, I'm sure she has seen your hiney before.

By the way, how old is your sister? Where does she live? Is she single?

Snakes and bugs don't bug me my part of my brain shuts down when I see spiders. I would retell my spider/car incident, but you all have heard it.
Had that snake taken up residence under my FRIG (that blatent mispelling is for you Lindz) I would have moved.

Tracy said...

T: Yes, I'm sure she has as she BIT it when she was 2... and I was 10. So there, she is 23. And she lives in Kansas. And she is getting married in February.
Sorry... she's awesome too!

M: Are you sure you woulda moved? Maybe you woulda taken off your pants and did a snake removal dance in the kitchen... something similiar to the intersection spider dance. : )

Jeremy said...

awwwww...he's cute! It's a Black Racer btw, not a rat snake.

I loooove snakes!

Spiders, not so much.

Who's That Girl? said...

Ewwwwwwwwwww! I would have screamed, left the house and NEVER come back until someone caught the darned thing! How did it GET there to begin with? Snakes IN the house? Girl, you are crazy. There is NO way I would have been near that thing!

Tracy said...

Jeremy: I don't like spiders... and even more so, I don't like roaches.

WTG: I am guessing it came in through her kitty door but I couldn't really tell ya.

Who's That Girl? said...

EWWWWWWW! I HAAAAAAAATE roaches! I can't stand roaches! I would rather deal with 5 snakes than a dozen cockroaches!

kitkat said...

I AM very puzzled as to how he got in. I mean, I knew there was a hole somewhere in the house because of the variety of creatures I've encountered, but that hole has to be pretty large in order for this guy to have gotten in. I doubt he came in through the cat door--he would have had to come through the garage, lift up, and push the cat door--a lot of effort to be someplace he probably didn't want to be in. Anyway, this afternoon, I'm going to search for the hole. No more snakes!

Tracy said...

I would say let's nuke the roaches... but apparently they would survice that. They'd be the only ones. Bastards.

Good luck with the hole Katie!

Who's That Girl? said...

Where are you and Maki hiding today?

Maki said...

I am hiding at work. Under my desk. From my boss. Who is on the rampage!

Tracy said...

I am actually doing work today. Amazing I know. And I have a meeting this afternoon too so I won't be around then either... are you sad??

Jeremy said...

Tracy: Liars go to hell. Stop trying to convince us you're actually doing anything work related!

Tracy said...

HEY!!
I paid bills and have been doing budget stuff and then I was sent to Publix to pick up birthday cake for this afternoon's all employee meeting.
I didn't even eat lunch!!
: p

Tracy said...

I figure I'll eat an extra large piece of that cake...

Jeremy said...

blech, yeah, I stayed through lunch to work with our intern and then remembered I have a phone conference in half an hour. Guess that means no lunch for me :(

Tracy said...

I hope you have a candy jar at your desk too!!

Jeremy said...

I don't. :( I'm starving and the conference just got delayed due to power outage in Atlanta.

grrrrrrr
