What I found after making some toys

I came back from Toy Making for the Mason Dixon Woodworkers and I sat down at my computer and I looked up at my monitor and this is what I saw.

She disappeared from her cage about 3 weeks ago and has had the run of the house since then.

I guess she wanted o find a nice warm spot. How she got up from the floor onto my computer desk was also a challenge. She didn’t want to go back into her cage.

Kind of hard to have a poster on a telephone poll for lost snake :)) Glad it had a happy ending Karson.

We similarly lost ours a few years back. One night my daughter said, “Daddy there’s something wiggly under the dresser” and there she was.

I am with LEw!!! I am so glad she did not wiggle out while you were on a table saw—-I have one major weakness when I work—-I get jumpy when I am so focussed that when someone comes around the corner it freaks me out. Not a good thing…I cant imagine if I saw a snake…

Glad she is safe…even though snakes scare me…

We don’t keep snakes as pets, but I had a corn snake crawl inside the warm pool motor one cool night after it had switched off. The next morning when the timer kicked on, poof, one less corn snake and over $200 to replace the motor.

She was my son’s and she got loose in NJ for over 3 months. I saw this plastic snake on a shelf in my family room and I wondered what child put it there. I touched it and it moved, so I figured it was gone forever. She’s gotten loose about 5 or 6 times and always shows up somewhere.

My son moved out and so the rest of the family is taking care of the snake. She’s between 3 and 4’ long so she has lots of strength. She lifts the lid off her cage. We have Shaker candle boxes piled on top be she moved them all also.

Looks like it’s copper in color…

Glad you found it… sounds like it was making herself at home… LOL

It’s a Corn Snake Joe. She’s very friendly but she did bite me once when she missed the mouse and got my finger. I had two nice small holes in my finger.

Guess you don’t have a rodent problem! My neighbor complains of a constant battle of black rat snakes invading her home.

I’m hoping the kids never get into snakes, just don’t think I’d want the experience of finding that anywhere in my house.

My daughter-in-law’s brother is into all kinds of weird creature; snakes, tarantulas, scorpions, lizards and who knows what else. My daughter-in-law says it was to keep the nosy parents out of his room … needless to say it worked and kept quite a few of his friends out too!

It’s a pretty snake. However, I don’t particularly want a snake for a pet. My wife would probably have a heart attack. My wife went to the front door one time and found a note on the door that was left by a resident from down the street. He had put the same note on everybody’s door in the nieghborhood. He wanted everyone to be on the lookout for his six foot long boa constrictor. He said that if you see it don’t bother it and call so he could come get it. He said that it was harmless. My wife worried about it for months.
