Your reporter had a rattlesnake experience! Walking to the back door, a rattler was slithering from the flowerbed to the back door also! Grabbed a shovel and pinned it to the ground just short of the porch and called (more like screamed) for Lee. He cut its head off with the pruning shears. It was about 2 feet long and was very fat! Came from the same place as last year's rattler. I am sewing now, not working in the yard!
