Snake In The Grass

There are always consequences of our actions. Just yesterday I changed out the song on the home page of my website to the cover I did of “Don’t Bring Me Down”, written by Jeff Lynne. My favorite line in it, “You’re lookin’ good just like a snake in the grass, one of these days I’m gonna kick your ass” (my liberty taken with original lyrics). Well, this morning as I bent down to water a potted jade plant, there below me lying on a patch of grass, is a young diamond-back rattler – rather cocked up when he heard me pouring the water. Where he chose to lay peacefully is the only patch of weeds I left remaining when weeding my gravel garden whose centerpiece is a bird bath. Hummingbirds, golden finches, blue jays and robins drink from that bath. And everyday I refresh it with fresh water because I know they rely on it. It’s completely awesome to witness my little sanctuary of birds and lizards, squirrels and raccoons, an occasional skunk and now the creature I used to fear most… a snake, resting in my garden.

    Years ago “You Bring Me Down” was playing from a car at a root beer stand quite loudly and during that line a girl got worked up and started banging on a nearby car. I don’t know why I remember that but maybe others did too because some definitely took notice. Maybe she went on to be a drummer in a rock band, or country.
    I’m still at least wary of snakes.
    I love Jeff Lynne.

    I guess unconsciously when I left that little patch of grass, a friendly habitat was there for a weary rattlesnake who needed a rest.

    New Disney Original Pays Homage To The
    Summer-Lovin’ Beach Movies Of The 60’s

    The latest Disney original TV movie flashes back to those
    cheesy yet fun-loving summer beach movies that Annette
    Funicello and Frankie Avalon made popular in the 60’s.
    Donna Loren regularly sang sweet beach songs in those
    wonderfully fun 60’s beach movies. Adults will like the
    movie because it will remind them of their childhood and
    the times which they grew up in.
