When we went to Poth Texas to buy salt and mineral for the cattle we passed a small flower nursery who had this sign up---Spring is here and we are so excited we're wetting our plants. Kind of cute and fitting I thought. Speaking of sayings have you heard the one Do all liars fish or do all fishermen lie? Thought of this one this morning as Do all rattlesnake killers lie, or do all liars kill rattlesnakes? As we were passing through a gate going to the east property I saw a rattlesnake slithering into a cactus bush. I yelled snake, snake. John has a hard time seeing so he stopped the truck and finally saw it. As many rattlesnakes as you see you still get excited. I don't have a gun he yelled while I'm keeping my eye on it to see where it goes. He found a metal pole by the fence and began beating the snake. Missed a couple of times but was able to break it's back so it was unable to strike. Then continued to kill it by hitting it's head. On the way back from feeding the new mother and calf we found in a field all by themselves we were still discussing the snake. I said I think it was about two feet long and John said oh no it was at least four or five feet long. Oh well we both agreed it was a fat one and it was good it can't bite a cow or calf now.
