    Default King snake


    Found a King snake today under a stack of nucs. King Snakes are non poisonous, so I let it go right after this picture was taken. A poisonous snake would have a bloody stump instead of a head. I don't enjoy dispatching them, but our families want us to come home.

    Not only non-poisonous, but known to prey on venomous snakes.

    Wow, you run into a lot of snakes out there. I'm glad you let him go. So many people are afraid of snakes and most of them do a lot of good.

    Chuck Norris has a grizzly bear carpet in his room. The bear isn't dead it is just afraid to move.

    Are you driving a semi? Is that part of your beekeeping?

    I used to drive semi trucks. That's just a 2 axle flatbed Freightliner. I never measured it, but it has about a 20 foot bed. It'll hold 6 rows of pallets with about a foot and a half left over. Doesn't ride real smooth, but the AC blows cold!
