Hope everyone survived the Rattlessssssnake encounter. Actually, I have spent a lot of time in wilderness and ranch areas in Southern Arizona and have only encountered a rattlesnake on two occasions...both of which when I was in a vehicle and Mr. Snake was crossing the road as fast as he could go.
We do have our working dogs (those who will be out in the fields) snakeproofed so they will avoid any snake. That's a subject for another blog.

Peacock with Yucca Stalk
"What's with the Peacock?" did you say? Well, that's another tale for another blog.
