RED AND YELLOW KILL A FELLA

RED AND YELLOW KILL A FELLA?????? Yes it does???
As the hip hubby and I walked back into the house about 8:30 this morning after attending Connor's Benjamin Franklin speech the screaming started. I was walking from our garage (which is detached) I thought I saw something out of the corner of my eye. I walked up the steps and Hip hubby said he take my phone and keys and when I turned around I then saw what he had seen.  Then I opened the back door ( incase I needed a quick escape) Tom came around the garage with a shovel and the hunt was on.....He is trying to be manly and I am screaming like a little girl. Out comes our housekeeper and she started screaming in spanish and yelling "snake" and she runs back inside. I just keep screaming and jumping up and down. Tom then hits the snake with the shovel and he kills it. Oh by the way I am still screaming. Then he thinks he is going to bury it in the yard. Are you kidding me,,,,I told him all the other snakes will come after us for revenge, you must get rid of it....(after I take some pictures to verify this is not poisonous and for my blog) oh by the way "still screaming."
After all the excitment I come inside and our housekeeper is yelling "poisonous". So I get on the computer and look up poisonous snakes and what do you know a picture of the snakes pops up  a CORAL snake and guess what.....YES IT IS POISONOUS......
 
This is Tom the snake killer...Now we will have to listen to how macho he is because he killed a snake....(really I will listen to him all day long, because thank god he was here and saw it)
Only in Texas can you kill a poisonous snake before breakfast.....

Remember in Inwood when the snake slithered down our hall and under the door into my newborn babies room? Yup, I called Tom and he ran up the street... shovel in hand and was my hero!!! He's still the HERO! Gosh, that sucker had slithered in the closet and under the toy box. UGH!

I googled coral snake and saw a creepy guy with one crawling on his face. Glad that Tom was home to save the day!
