RE: today

After we bought our current house the neighbors told us about the
previous owners. The woman had opened the front door one day and saw a
snake. Probably a gopher snake, although it was long enough ago there
could have been the occasional rattler. Anyway from then on she didn't
go outside. She got into her car from the door into the garage, drove
out to the mailbox to get the mail and drove back in.
We still have a cat they left behind too. They must have had 20 or more
black cats, maybe they were breeding for eye color since some of them
had almost florescent green eyes, but they weren't caged. We were
catching cats for weeks.

All this snake stuff reminds me of when I finally got the plantation
listed for sale. First group to come look was an Eastern European
couple [I decided this based on his haircut and how they sort of
resembled the Ukrainians across the street] and one of their mothers.
While the agent and the couple were ranging through the rooms, the
older woman came over to me and asked in a low voice, almost a
whisper: "Are snakes here?" I smiled. "This is Florida, ma'am," I
said. "There are snakes everywhere." They decided not to buy the house.
