Real horror

BF just announced that he disposed of two young rattlesnakes just now.  One was in the yard.   The other was at the bottom of the back door steps.


We moved here in spring of 2006.  One snake the following October, one more a few years after that that bit one of the dogs.  Both of those were . . . dispatched.  A third bit Moby, but we never saw that one, and that was probably in 2011 or '12.  None since.  Now two in one evening.


I do not do snakes at all, and dangerous ones even less.


I am not a happy camper right now.
