Snake in the grass

Recently found a cold wet snake crawling about a garden. Now in petrified of snakes, but i managed to persuade it via my garden rake, to seek solace in a bucket. I eventually got it to a vet who promised to take care of it and re-house it.
Hope it remembers me ?



When i was younger. Before i was married and had the trappings of financial constraints, i planned a trip to south africa. I was going to drive via morocco to the cape, then return via Egypt. I went as far as seeking visa forms from loads of African countries and pricing ferries etc. Fuel and expenses were worked out on a daily expenditure plan. It sounded very exciting.
As usual things get in the way, and leaving it a bit longer stretches into months, years and a few decades later… It a shame my wife doesn’t really like the idea. Imagine taking your family in such an adventure ? The world is huge, but only as big as you make it. I guess.
I still hope to achieve this one day, but secretly know this is unlikely.
