There Is A Snake In My Bed

December ...California.

*ring ring*

{phone call from Kentucky}
Hi honey it's Awolf, Jackknife just got a horse and wants to know if you will sell the saddle that you have in your cabin here?

Saddle is not for sale, but give Jackknife the key to my cabin and tell him I said to borrow it...
AND RIDE IT LIKE HE STOLE IT! heh heh .

*ring ring*

{phone call from Kentucky}
Hey, this is Jackknife, somebody has moved into your cabin!

WHAT!!

I went over there to get the saddle and as I was turning around with the saddle in my arms, I heard a noise coming from a cardboard box. I thought it was a mouse, so I gave that box a kick and up out of that box rose the biggest snake I have ever seen! I screamed like a girl and ran! {Jackknife has seen a LOT of snakes-he is timber man}. That snake struck at me and then came out of the box chasing and striking and biting at me all the way out the door! Barely had time to grab the bridle off the nail by the door as I ran out. Was almost bitten several times as it chased me!! I slammed your cabin door and threw your saddle down on the porch and went to the big window and peeked in, there was it's long tail dissapearing right under your bed!

The boys and I think we can get that snake out of your cabin if you don't mind us firing off a few rounds inside your house. We thought we should take a handgun, a couple of rifles and a shotgun. Might make a mess in there, but you sure won't want that thing inside your house. It is at least a 6 footer and looked to be closer to 8 or 9 feet long. Of course it looked biggest when it was chasing me out of the door. That is a MONSTER snake!

Well...do whatever you think is right.

{I call Kentucky from California}
Hey Jackknife...this is squirrel. I changed my mind. Leave the snake alone till I get back to Kentucky.I have to see what it wants.
When I got back to my cabin in Feb., I looked everywhere I imagined a MONSTER snake could hide. No sign of it.
I return to California.

July
I return to my cabin in Kentucky.I take everything apart...couch,love-seat, look under braided rugs. Nothing. Maybe it moved out?
HAH!

I was looking for the flyswatter and peering under my bed a few days later. I saw...what made me ease back slowly..respectfully.

SNAKE!

Wait...what..is. I got a broom and went back under the bed. Used broom to touch..snakeskin? Yes...shed snakeskin! As I pulled the skin out from under the bed...it came and came..sliding out. It was so LONG! Was not there a day ago.

WOW it is a MONSTER of a snake. The skin started to dry out and shrink when I took it out in the sun to take photos. Even so..it is still taller than me!

I looked up the snakes of Kentucky on LappyTop. The Blue Racer is reputed to be the only non-poisonous one that will chase people. Non poisonous. {whew} Males commonly 6 feet in length.It will chase people down when it's BREEDING TERRITORY has been envaded. Great, a monster snake has picked out MY cabin as it's breeding territory?? Why does the weird shit always happen to me?

It has not attacked me yet. It probably would have already if it was going to. I have been in my cabin for at least a month. Blue Racer, Spotti and the kitties and me. I am a bit concerned for kitties and I always look down before getting out of bed. If I stepped on it I WOULD have a cardiac episode.

Some people here say this is no ordinary snake.
They believe it to be a spirit being...my protector.
Some no longer come to my place.
Do spirit beings shed their skin?

Well it has been a year.
Did you ever see the snake or did it move out?
~~~~~~~
I wish I knew! I stayed at this cabin last fall and saw no snake skins....or mice. I pitched a tent on top of the queen sized bed and zipped it up tight at night with my faithful terrier bitch "Tweeter" inside with me just in case.

I was hoping to see lots of mice when I first got there after the long roadtrippin trek from Cali to Ky. Not one mouse was to be seen.

Snakes creep me out, but at least they eat mice. Only thing is, poor lil Tweeter is the size of a fat rat!

Two of my closest friends breed snakes. Not my thing, and I now know more about them than I care to.

There are rattlers in the hills by my place, but in the last however many years of tromping around up there I've only seen two.

The first time was years ago in January, and at that point I was unaware of how dormant they became in winter - it was hiding between two logs and I thought it was dead. It wasn't until I had it hoisted in the air with a stick that it slowly began to move...and I quickly began to move.

Snakes rock and are generally harmless. I used to have a bunch of 'em... had to give them away when I moved down south ten years ago.
----------------------------------------------------
I had a green Burmese python, a Sumatran blood python, and my prize, a Peruvian Rainbow Boa up until 3 years ago or so.

The Burmese snakes are vicious, but I routinely fell asleep on the couch with the Sumatran on my chest. She was bigger around than my bicep.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Oh Noooo....
I am not fond of big snakes after being bitten once. I found out that once they latch on to you, and your natural inclination to grab it and jerk it the hell off kicks in , their fangs just sink into your flesh deeper the harder you try and pull away....
Oh now I am scaring MYSELF!

In Oztralia, we just cut them up with a shovel.

My Snake Story.

We (my partner, and the kidlets) were driving to the estuary one day to crab. To get there we used to bush bash in our old car through the bush. So therefore to go home we needed to go back through the bush. Part of the way home was along a two lane road. Some people in the cars driving past ours began to gesticulate wildly at us. By about the fourth carload doing this. J my partner decides to pull over and see what is causing the excitement.

He opens his door, steps out and turns around. A big snake head pokes out to say hello. It was a dugite that had wrapped itself around the axel of our tyre. He had to reach gingerly into the cas to get the keys out of the ignition to get the big long tyre thing-o out of the boot. The snake didn't like being poked, so crawled off into the bush.

And for the rest of the day we walked around saying Crikey! like steve irwin.

It looks more like a Black Rat snake by the way.

Black Rat snake?
Do they get this big and chase people?
hm

Is that a snake in my bed or are you just happy to see me? heh

I guess he is happy to see me since he has not tried to bite me.
Fact is, I have not even seen the reptile. He just leaves his skin under my bed.

haha One time I got off the toilet turned to flush and there was a snake wrapped around the spot between the tank and the seat. I thought I would have a fucking heart attack. Of course I have also had other critters make my home theirs, until I find them.

As a teenager, my dad used to have a snake (not sure what kind although I'm sure it was poisonous), and it escaped once. My grandmother woke up to find the snake coiled up around her slippers one morning.
