    Well aren't you sweet to worry about me. I'm here, alive and very definitely kicking. DH doing better even though they are talking about a hip replacement. Like I need more trips to the hospital. Never mind him, it's all about me. :) He turns 80 Sunday but he wants pies. I'm ready for pies after all the cakes. BTW, he's older than I am. :D

    How about a chocolate silk pie? Ever had one? It's like really good fudge in a crust, full of fat and calories and who the heck cares? Anyway, he wants: Apple crumb pie. Cherry meringue pie which is basically a key lime pie with two drained cans of tart cherries added. He LOVES it!!! It is good. He also wants a Hawaiian Love Pie which is so easy it's sinful and delicious. If you want, I'll post the recipe. Hi to everyone!

    Yes, Posey, I love the jummmmmmmmmmmmmmp up and down weather!!!!!

    I'm still here. My forum time seems to be limited but I come visit often. Things should calm down soon here at home. I went out to water my orchids this morning and found a freakin' corn snake in one of my hanging orchids. I can't stand those things, especially hanging about eye-level. I did my heebie-jeebie dance (the one where you run in place which really makes a lot of sense), turned the water on full force toward that plant and all he did was dive down into the pot. Think of me later when I venture out again. Shit!

    Edit: He's still there. Double shit! I have to admit he's pretty but pretty just ain't gonna hack it! I'd get the pot down but it would mean reaching over him to unhook it and I just don't have what it takes. I don't want to harm him -- I just want him to take a hike. Help me, or sympathize at least.

    He won't hurt you, Ann. Will he? Get something and bug him til he does a "there goes the neighborhood".
    Now, what could we use to bug him? Do you have one of those cool Grabbit things?
    Grabbit the snake!!

    As of late this evening that frickin' thing was still there. He/she is still down in the pot. I can see him/her in the slot. I can't begin to tell you how much this disgusts me! Just seeing that snake in the pot. I have a grandson who isn't afraid of these things and I'm going to call him tomorrow and have him come get this creepy thing out and take it out where he lives in the boonies and let it go. I live in the freakin' city fer crist sakes! He lives out with the gators live. Damn!!!!!!!!!!!

    Edit: MJ, I poked him with a stick to no avail. I'll pay your fare to come here with whatever you have, even stock up with your favorite beer which we'll both drink until we are giggling idiots poking a stick at a snake. Forrest? A hatchet? It's inside the pot!!!!!!!!!! And I really don't want to hurt it. I just want it to move next door. And stay there.

    snake pie..I wonder...hmmmm I can ship my Rat Terrier down...he would have a field day...one of his favorite past times is hunting snakes and shaking them to death...he likes snakes better than even a chipmunk...maybe it is because it is easier for him to catch.

    Give some sweet incentive and I'll remove the snake to a safer location. I have to
    move snakes regularly because they get into our garden shed. I have no problem
    picking them up and carrying them to a better location.

    No. It was gone this morning. I checked the pot -- no eggs. But I'm still not a happy camper. Angela, I am impressed that you can just pick these things up. I just can't do that. I remember buying a ball python for my grandsons years ago and carrying it out to them on Christmas morning, all balled up, praying that it wouldnt "unball" and make me throw it across the room. It didn't..
