Important Man On Campus
Noel thinks the world was made for him. He is everywhere checking everything out while Happy seems to just be in awe of the world. She just stands and stares as if trying to figure it all out. I always wonder exactly what are they thinking? We put out three large round bales of hay getting prepared for the cold and rain the weathermen say is coming. After we finished our chores we stopped at the stock tank for me to feed the turtles. I called and called but they must have buried deep preparing for the cold too. I didn't know turtles had weather men. Not one turtle peeped it's head out. When we came home I decided I should rake my leaves since my neighbor has raked little piles next to my property and then left them there several days as it to signal they blew from my yard. While I was raking I raked across a little rusty snake about a foot long. You know its hard to measure a snake when it is wiggling and your trying to hit it with the back of the rake. It had a little pointed head. I know someone is going to say you should have not killed that snake, its a good one. Well it is in the bottom of my garbage can maybe dead, maybe alive, maybe stunned, under a pile of leaves. Maybe I should have put it in my neighbor's pile of leaves, you think?
