I finally found the lost banana. I thought the smell would lead me to it sooner then later but it didn't. A few days ago John had just peeled a banana about an inch down when the door bell rang and it was the air conditioner repairman. He went outside with the man and when he came back in to retrieve his banana it was missing. We looked high and low and it was no where to be found. We even looked in the bathroom and the garage. Today as I passed the refrigerator my eyes caught sight of the banana on the top edge. Needless to say it was black and squishy.
South Texas is having an overrun of snakes appearing in strange places looking for water. The oddest one I think I have heard was on the news yesterday. Some of the Missions in San Antonio still have church services in them. A lady saw what she thought was a rosary in the holy water so she reached in and picked it up. If felt soft and when it moved she realized it was a snake, a coral snake. She slung it and it went near some people who were there worshiping. Scared the bejabbers out of her and the worshipers. The priest lives on the property and said he had swept a snake out of his apartment one time.
