Snake alert

Posted: July 22, 2014 2:00 a.m.

Recently, I was driving in my neighborhood when something caught my eye crossing the street in front of me. A very large gopher snake was booking it across the hot asphalt from left to right.

I stopped to let the snake cross. It was moving at warp speed for a snake due to the high temperature of the street surface.

Now, this street is two lanes with room to park at the curb, and luckily there was no one parked in this area.

To my surprise someone approaching from the rear of my car, passed me on the right and drove over the snake’s tail.

I am grateful that it wasn’t a child or someone’s dog that got gutter sniped by the driver who was exercising his special Santa Clarita privileged status.

It seems like many people in our community think they are very special or are constantly responding to emergencies that exist only in their minds.

So if you are working in your yard and you find a large snake with a flat tail, don’t be alarmed because it is not a sea snake (hydrophiinaea), it is just a victim of our special brand of driving here in the city of Santa Clarita.

"Snake alert" refers to Brian Baker ********

wow brian. I think you got on the bingo lady's nerves.

Not surprised though, they seem to dish it out but can't take it.

I guess asterisks (***) are the new exclamation points (!!!), right Lois?

Always makes me feel all warm and fuzzy when I know I've annoyed you lefties.

"Always makes me feel all warm and fuzzy when I know I've annoyed you" Brain(snake)******

You are easily annoyed when the ball is not in your court *********
No "LOVE" shown when you continue to jab unnecessarily +++++++

Your comments are always negative, cynical and yet you accuse other posters for
doing the same thing *********

Think what you want, post what you want without your personal jabs ********

Same goes for the other posters *******

"Your comments are always negative, cynical and yet you accuse other posters for doing the same thing"


Huh?

Sorry, Lois, I think you must have me confused with stevie-boy... which actually is kinda insulting. I never "accuse" other posters of any such thing. Stevie's the one who's big on being the "victim".

I, on the other hand, take great delight in watching you guys get wrapped tighter and tighter, like a clock waiting to bust its mainspring.

I do so by using those "personal jabs" you're bleating about. But then, so do YOU.

Is this yet another example -- as if any were needed -- of SOP leftist hypocrisy?

Why... yes it is*****


Nitesho: Posted: July 22, 2014 12:49 p.m.

Wait Brian and Bingo Lady...let me get my popcorn. Buttered (Thanks for the tip Indy!)


BrianBaker: Posted: July 22, 2014 2:33 p.m.

Looks like Lois has left the building.


Ah, well....


projalice11: Posted: July 22, 2014 3:05 p.m.

Oh well she went to the snake pit to see Brain in his habitat *******
This is the end of my posting on this subject **** No comment forthcoming


BrianBaker: Posted: July 22, 2014 3:19 p.m.

Ah... an attempt at humor. Sadly, an utter failure. As expected.

********




Nitesho: Posted: July 22, 2014 3:36 p.m.

wow bingo lady...that's it? that's all you have? I've heard a fart in church go better than that joke.

That's pretty sad*******
