Two days ago as I was running around trying to remove debris before the storm hit, I saw this grayish skinny thin about a foot long wiggling around trying to eat some bird poop on the cement. I stopped and looked at it from afar. Apparently, he or she saw me too and wiggled away.
There were some things I needed to remove but there was no way I was going near the area. It was probably a garden snake but it freaked me out just the same. I hate snakes of any kind and I know it is a phobia I have to overcome or I will never be able to move to Terlingua :-(
The chicken and her chicks no longer visit us. I do not know if our neighbor has moved them to the new lot he bought or if he has sold them to his Mexican partners in Ciudad Acuna.
