... Well, almost. Was trimming a large yew foundation planting the other day, about as tall as I was. All was going well, till I saw the snake. Deathly afraid of those critters. As it turns out, it was a rubber one planted in the tree to scare off birds. When I saw it, dropped the shears, and did a little dance, entertaining everyone that was watching. I had to sit down for a little while to regain my composure.
