Last night I had a dream that I was mowing neighbor Tessie's lawn, I also saw quite a few snakes. I remember several dreams a night, and they are usually about what I did that day, or bizarre and random... as dreams should be. This dream does not fit either of those categories, so it must mean that I miss mowing, and catching snakes. :bigrofl:

HA! I'm thinking I could go for some grass right about now. If you're like me.....maybe your dream was caused by dropping the snow thrower too low and picking up some grass with the snow your were throwing and now your brain wants to mow lawns. Yes, come Spring I will have my work cut out for me.......TURF DOCTOR here I come. :thumbs:

That is NOT what I meant! Reptiles are another passion of mine. Sometimes I do hit a snake, turtle, and most commonly frogs... but I always try to avoid them.

I'm ready to get some grass to test the machines I've got parked.  What better way to test horsepower than bush hogging? 

 

Speaking of snakes, I met a copperhead with a zero turn two summers ago. 

 

I was trying to pin the snake's head under a tire so I could kill it properly, and so I didn't have to scrape its parts out of the yard.  I had the blades off.  Well, this snake wanted to dive into a woodpile, and we were doing all kinds of crazy laps trying to stop each other from accomplishing our respective goals.  I didn't know a copperhead could zip that fast.  

I got fed up with the fun when the snake decided to pay me a social call by jumping over the discharge side of the deck and stuck his head up to see which leg looked soft enough to bite on the way over.  Ahem, buddy.  A little close.  So I kicked him off with my boot and did the desperate: I  knocked on the blades.  Did a quick spin and then...Bam!  Snake parts broadcasted freestyle!  And the next half hour raking up the corpse so the dog didn't enjoy supper early.

Fascinating enough, the impact of the blades contacting a snake ripped the deck hanger weld off the tractor.  Junk, junk, junk. Next time it's snake versus my Gravely 5260.  

Come to think of it, its worth finding a snake to test it.

Here, I have lots and lots of water snakes. There are also a lot of garter snakes too; although, I leave them ones alone... their smell is way worse then any other! My favorite are the the milk snakes, but I have only caught a few of them before.

 

I did have a thread with all kinds of pictures, but I organized my photobucket and all of the links broke. Here are just a few.

And just a few garter snakes.

Thats a cool pic of that Satalite/Van :thumbs:

 

I think everyone is dreaming of cuttin a little grass right now, tilling the garden, grading the driveway, I guess anything for a little more seat time than a guy has been getting lately.
