Reminds me of my father's Aunt living on a dirt road in the middle of some poverty stricken part of Kentucky...including the pump and outhouse. Being a city boy (ok, really just a town) I was not accoustomed to seeing snakes and other woodland creatures wandering around willy-nilly. To further enhance the experience, I puked everytime I had to use the outhouse. Ah, good times.

Cheers

Using the privy at Auntie Magnolia's, we think we were so relieved not to encounter exactly the wrong kind of trouser snake, puking was the furthest thing from our mind.

p.s. Auntie Magnolia (not her real name, but close) was also my father's aunt

Ahhh! The good old days. Don't you miss them sometimes?

Whup-Ass Master

Howdy Leeuna! Were those the good old days? You'd think someone would have had the decency to inform us at the time.

At some point in these trips to the heartland there had to be the courtesy visit to the Uncle Ed, the confirmed bachelor with the younger and hotter boarder.

Whup-Ass Master

@SlashX: Unfortch, no. We did have a sensitive bachelor Uncle whom our family visited more than once. But it wasn't until much later we put 2 and 2 together. That's a good idea for a future post.

Ah, yes - I had an Auntie M (my great-aunt Maxine), who lived in Grand Saline, Texas. She kept wickedly mean chickens and while I don't remember any snakes, she was hostess to a legion of ticks and chiggers, as well as the occasional armadillo.

That is one great story, WAM.

Whup-Ass Master

@jan: ah yes, ticks and chiggers. the state parasites of texas and oklahoma. we find armadillos pretty fascinating though.

@Jeffrey: thanks! the tip jar is on the upper left.
