Ready, Aim, Snake!

These are the cast iron and copper parts of the wall-hung toilets from the burned-down house in my yard.
After sawing it off and putting it down on its side my friend Ronnie declared it looked like a cannon.
I moved it to the old porch and aimed it down the walkway to improve the perception of my defenses.
Yesterday an oak snake found the thermodynamic properties of metal suitable for his cold-blooded needs.

These anole lizards are also really common here. You don't usually see them in such an
adorable arrangement though.


  1. I did not see the snake in the first photo. I admit to having the usual fear of snakes, but would never harm one. When I encounter one, I usually just send it on its way by gently prodding it with a VERY LONG stick or by ignoring it and going MY way instead. It's working so far.

  2. Snake looks very comfy. Anole lizards look very cute.
