    Now, I can't help laughing. No one was hurt, and the snakes were a non poisonous variety.

    So how many of those type snakes do you expect to encounter in Kentucky?

    Are you trying to frighten me?

    You ever smelled a cotton-mouth water moccasin about to drop out of a tree into your boat?

    Don't expect to encounter any...

    ... usually try to stay out of areas they inhabit.

    Actually, I have. It was when I was stationed in Millington TN (NAS Millington just north of Memphis TN) from '86 until '90. There was a place called Navy Lake just north of the base housing units that you could rent canoes and such from. However................they told you to stay away from the trees at the south end of the lake because of that very problem.

    Never seen such a sight as when I saw a whole bunch of snakes drop out of the trees into the water when you threw a rock under the trees. Kinda scary, but pretty cool as well.

    I am a girlie girl....but I am not afraid of snakes.
    I have seen plenty of cotton mouth snakes around my parts....if you don't bother them, they won't bother you.
    My son has a ball python as a pet in a large 100 gallon glass tank.
    They don't give me the heebie jeebies......just like spiders and mice don't.
    Not saying I wouldn't jump if someone tossed a snake onto my lap.....but I'm not a screaming little girl if I see one in the yard....just sayin'.
