Here's my first effort with some of my new Memory Box dies, I cut the oval with a Nestability, the birch trees were cut from light grey cardstock, and the whole thing is glittered which doesn't show in the photo........
Birch trees, deer, star, large oval
I had a scary moment the other evening, late, when I was sitting on the lanai reading. I heard a sibilant SSSssssssss sound coming from the kitchen. SNAKE
was my immediate reaction, and as I headed to the kitchen I heard it again
SSSSSssssss. Yes, definitely a snake. Help! Mike was sleeping, so I armed myself with a weapon, a useful potato masher, no, not a knife, a black plastic thing for making mashed potatoes, don't ask me why I grabbed that particular ridiculous object, I have no idea..........
Ssssss - there it was again, somewhere behind me, so I crept up and opened the oven door. Now quite what I would have done if there was a snake curled up on a baking tray I have no idea, but I would have been fine, I had my potato masher to protect me ......SSSSSssssss- this time I opened the dishwasher. Ssssssss - at last I realised that it was the coffee machine that usually turns off automatically hissing in protest at being left on all day.
The moral of this story on reflection is, if you think you have a snake in the house, run, but don't forget your potato masher just in case there is a large and dangerous Florida animal like a black bear lurking outside, it would be just the thing to make him turn and run
