(no subject)

I was moving some large rounds of hardwood that have been lying in a pile by the garage since well before we bought the place, when I saw something slithering underneath. There were 3 of them, like large worms (but much quicker to get out of the way) and they were dark in colour. I think they may have been baby red-bellied black snakes, although it's still winter, which is a bit early. There are a few around here, but they mostly keep to the reserve across the road, next to the lagoon. No sign of Mum or Dad, thank goodness.

Time to clear that stack of old wood, methinks. With gloves & boots on. And a hose to wash anything that creeps out down the driveway & over the road.

Any old excuse, but I think I need a drink.
