Yep had to get my boots out 'cause the BS got deep. When this one particular man comes over to talk to John he will never sit down. He is in a hurry but he stays at least an hour or longer telling tales. He is just inside to door with one hand on the door facing and John and I take our seat. This time it started out us talking about the lack of rabbits in this area now days. Then it went on to wild hogs and deer. Somehow it spread to rattlesnakes. John had to tell him about when he and his brother were young and hunting rattlesnakes and drinking, a bad combination. He says they sold them, to who I don't know. One night they were in his brother's car. The next morning when his brother had to go to work he called John and ask how many snakes were in the box last night? John said 18 I think. His brother said thats what I thought but now there are only 17. So John took the tractor over and they pulled the car out into the field and opened all four doors wide open and left it there for two days hoping the snake would get hot and crawl out. Then friend had to tell about his biker friend with long hair and long beard thought it would be cool to have some pet rattlesnakes. So he got two and put them in an aquarium on his coffee table. One night somehow they got out. His family said they would not go back into that house until those snakes were gone. So biker buddy is down on the floor crawling around looking for said snakes. When he raises his head he is even with a plant on the bay window, he and one of the snakes are looking at each other eye to eye. The one tale I can attest to when we lived at the ranch we saw a cat charming a rattlesnake. The snake was coiled with it's head straight up. The cat was circling, they were eyeing each other. John threw a cedar post and broke the spell. The snake went east and the cat went west.
