Singin' In The Rain
We had more rain last night, so much appreciated to start the summer coming up. We can't get to the stock tank but know it is probably running around as we knew it was full from the last rains. We went by John's daughter's place on the way home and as we were walking out John was walking in the grass instead of the walk-way. As he started to put one foot in front of the other he saw a snake coiled up. He let out a yell and his daughter went for her gun. It looked like a rattlesnake but on closer inspection it was just a rat snake and was alredy dead. Probably killed by the Mama cat who has four kittens near their side door. She brings a rat from the barn every morning for her kittens. We went home a different country road to check out the cotton field. There are puddles that look like small lakes. I was so surprised to see two ducks beside a big puddle/lake that looks like the Whistler ducks on The Runaround Ranch Report blog. I don't think I've ever seen those here before but they sure are welcome.
