OK; So far, no oil spill damage visible this far east. As of today, we have 5 commited to crawl the coast; we can take bags to pick up trash along the way--they say it helps to pick up trash before the oil hits the shoreline. :think:

Hi Pascal, Yes, it was a real snake, small and curled up. We were drawing not too far from where they filmed the old Tarzan movies, in the 1930's I think, at Wakulla Springs.

Oh Pascal :!:
That little snake was a pygmy rattler (real name). I have seen the eastern diamondback rattlesnake as thick as your leg and as long a your height, but rarely. The pygmy rattler is shy and pretty. We have many snakes of beautiful color here, most are helpful and not poisonous.
