Snakes and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

Such is the life when one lives out in the country.

I was getting the little boy into the car one morning, and seat-belting him in, when I happened to glance in the direction of the truck.

I had a "what is wrong with this picture" moment, and then I realised I was looking at a snake.  On our truck's back tyre. ( YES, I SPELL IT AS TYRE ).

We've seen our share of snakes out here, as well as their shedded skin, but usually they're on the ground or in a hole.

THIS one, apparently, was having breakfast.
