There you are, on your way out the front door to run some errands or go to dinner. You drop your keys on the ground. You look down to retrieve them. That’s when you see your new best friend that wants to say hello. What do you do? Personally, my little oinker butt can’t get back into the safety confines of the Hotel Thompson fast enough – Mr. Snake can have the car keys. Oh what’s that mom? The house key is on the chain too? Snorts. The top of the house sure looks like a great waiting spot then. Don’t tell me piggies can’t climb. What would YOU do my friends? Anyone want me to save them a spot next to me on the roof?
Sorry We Are Staying In the Rest of the Day

What I would do? Take some long stick and fish for the keys – as I am not acquainted with the species I’d play it safe. And with long stick I mean LONG stick 😉

I know that’s right – It’s a rattler. Rattlers are mean… well most snakes are mean in my book because they can eat me. He can have the car keys. I have legs. I can run… far, FAR away. XOXO – Bacon

I’d watch very carefully to see if it ate the keys as I called the police!
08/17/2015 at 3:03 pm
Snorts! That’s so very true. If he did eat the keys, I guess you could squeeze him to unlock the car? Rolls with piggy laughter – nah – he can have the keys if he eats them. XOXO – Bacon

The mind boggles Bacon! 😵

I wouldn’t hang about and take a picture! But, hey, with him coiled I wouldn’t be prone to sudden movements either. I’d say, back slowly away and watch for him to leave. He’d get hungry after a while.
08/17/2015 at 3:04 pm
I know! I would happily watch him from the roof top, or the nearest tree. Don’t think us piggies can’t climb when we gotta. I’ve been known to. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

I’m with Fran on this one…get a very, very, VERY LOOOOOONNNNGGGG stick! Slowly and carefully, of course…wow!
08/17/2015 at 3:05 pm
I’m thinking that would be the best idea. Long stick – VERY LONG STICK. XOXO – Bacon
08/15/2015 at 3:06 pm
YUCK!!!!! And I do mean YUCK! I’d run in the other direction but my Mom would faint – probably landing on the snake and murdering it right then and there from her weight! HAHAHAHA
08/17/2015 at 3:06 pm
Snorts cousin. Oh no! Tsk-tsk. Mom would pass out too. Be her luck she falls on Mr. Snakeman and gets bit and swells up more than she is. Now that would be vision to respect – 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

Guess its time to hitchhike to your favorite relatives house. I wouldnt pick up those keys.
08/17/2015 at 3:08 pm
Thank goodness Nana just lives 12 houses up from the Hotel Thompson. Snorts – I’m not going near those keys. No way! XOXO – Bacon

I’d say bye from inside and say, ” don’t let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.”
08/17/2015 at 3:08 pm
Amen to that my friend – AMEN! XOXO – Bacon
08/16/2015 at 5:42 am
that was my first thought too… to climb on the roof or on a tree… but with all my bad luck I probably would furget the phone in the car or next to the snake … so my suggestion is: run like the wind …far far away… have you to pay for removing snakes from your property or is that a free service?
08/17/2015 at 3:10 pm
Snorts! Luckily there are some peeps that work in the police department that are snake wranglers. This is a job for them for sure. Mr. Snake can just have those keys for a while. XOXO – Bacon

Either the roof of the house or the roof of the car would be where you would find us 😉 That way you can watch and wait for Mr. Snakey friend to leave!
08/17/2015 at 3:11 pm
Amen to that! XOXO – Bacon

Shivers with fear. I need your Momma Bear – ❤ XOXO – Bacon

Hey! I am an aussie! a mere poisonous man eating snake isn’t going to slow me down. 😀

Actually had something like this happen to us once in Arizona. My husband and I were going to open the door when luckily we heard the sound–yes, that sound–the rattle! We peeked outside and saw it. Phew!
08/19/2015 at 2:17 pm
OMP! That was a close call. I say no to snakes. Just no. No WAY – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon
