SSSsup? Nature Friday


Last week, Bob and I were walking with Big Boy, Bob holding the leash. Up ahead I saw a snake, we were headed straight toward it, about 20 feet in front of us. I said move over and stepped to the other side of the road. I hissed at Bob MOVE OVER, its a snake. He continued to walk straight at the snake.
About the time I was going to scream at him, he and Big Boy walked right over it. He was laughing, I was not. He said 'Its fake! we saw it yesterday when you weren't with us."

His practical jokes truly Hiss me Off!   SSSsup with men and their joy in practical jokes?
To me, Spiders and Snakes are a part of the EEK-osystem…

Good GRIEF!!! It looks really scary too. Apparently B.B was in on the joke.

I think that calls for paybacks...lol So were you walking on the other side of the street or did you just stay behind as they strolled over the fake snake?

Hello,

Florida has too many snakes, I thought it was real. BB is brave, unless he is not scared of snakes. Have a happy day!

Rose said...

You gotta love him....
I agree that spiders and snakes are a part of the EEK-OSYSTEM...
Love that word.
I'm amazed that the fake snake was still there in the same spot.

Mean trick but funny.

Eekosystem is a nice way of saying it. I on the other hand would have all kinds of SENSErship coming to mind.

And yet, I find it a hoot those two knew it was fake.

What a joker Bob is!

Lois said...

At first I thought that thing was real and was wondering how you were able to make yourself get that close to it! Yikes.

Ruth Hiebert said...

It does look very real and I would have likely taken a different route after that.

How creepy! Don't we have enough REAL ones! lol I would have still walked around it! Happy weekend!

DawnTreader said...

Now I want to know who placed it there!!!

Sandra, I would have thought the snake was real and gotten out of there, pronto. It's surprising that it was still around after Bob saw it earlier. Shame on him for fooling you.

Sounds like someone is out of sight taking movies of startled reactions. You could have ended up on one of those TV shows :)
