Default Scary

M sitting here at work tonight and realized I need something from the truck. So without waiting a walk out into the shop and then realize I forgot my keys on the desk.

That's when I freaked!!!!!

In the door I just stepped through laid a Copperhead snake about 10-12" long.

It took me by total surprised and then I eliminated it. But it was thought I had just stepped inches from it seconds ago.

Pics after I handled business!

You guys are lucky. I want that skin so bad!! All we have here in Washington is little 1 footers or so. I think you should skin and send it to me, or just deep freeze it and send it ;-)
