Many of our neighbors from the mid-west have never seen a rattler and so they have a hard time wrapping their minds around the fact that my husband will take our "reacher tool" and actually pick the snake up and throw it out into the wash as far from our homes has he can get them We think it is ordinary but they are absolutely awestruck!!! And that is exactly what happened today!
If you are a visiter to Tucson, beautiful Southern Arizona is on display out at the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum located west of the city. We have been to this zoo/museum/botanical garden. I will have to say that Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum is one of the most interesting place we have ever been. For most people in our country, the exotic nature of the creatures that live here is fascinating. Everything from Gila Monsters to beautiful Anna's Hummingbirds grace this ferocious yet beautiful country. We absolutely treasure every minute we spend here.
NOTE: Be sure to check the Groupon coupons for the Desert Museum...I see they have a 50% off coupon in the google search page. You can use the search function at the side of the blog to find more information.
Back here at the resort we are hoping there will be no need to toss anymore snakes over the fence. We will plant flowers tomorrow and clean up after our Saguaro fell over. Hopefully the critters will behave themselves tonight so we can sleep...the breezes are lovely.
bwhile longer. It will cool down soon and we will move the chairs into the sun! Did I tell you I love being retired.
