Re: Maybe a new homstead.


Very cool that the garden guardian showed herself. I love garter snakes. I don't mind our black snakes either, except when they eat my baby birds...then they tick me off. I don't kill them though, I just try to relocate them if possible, but still on the property. They keep the nasty snakes away!!!

Hopefully the bank will give you some kind of answer before the end of the week!! I will continue to send energy that way, and keep fingers and all crossed for you and Frog!!!

Garter snakes are usually very friendly, as are lizards & toads. The bank lowered the price ten thousand, and restated that they will not do any repairs, so we have looked into a restoration loan which seems possible. We shall see. Saijen, your energies are very much apreciated, but maybe you need 'em more than me, right now.

 emoticon Weird....I thought the same thing about the energies thing!

Definitely hoping this goes through for you two... emoticon

First time I ever had to meet a "Gopher Snake" (had no idea what one was), was when son and I were getting groceries and it had crawled out onto the parking lot of the CUB store. My son (then about 8) threw a fit until I stopped my car, got out, (and growing up in California I was wary, as from a distance this snake resembled a rattlesnake, but as I approached it did not coil or rattle) picked it up and move it to the open field beside the lot.....we both just knew it would be run over. It was actually quite gentle...

Muladzh, I sure hope things go right on this one for y'all! It's about time you had your place and were able to settle down. Will sure keep fingers crossed...and will ask the Goddess to send HER energies..how's that? emoticon

Queeny, that's quite a tale about the gopher snake. It had probably gotten onto the parking lot to sun itself. Good thing it was y'all that came along. anyone else would have intentionally run over it, not knowing, or caring, that it was a gentle being.

I'll ask the Goddess to watch over you to Muladzh... emoticon

And I do know people who would intentionally run over a snake....my Dad is one of those. emoticon

I know many who would intentionally run over a snake! I can see maybe a rattlesnake or some poisonous one if it's in an area where it could potentially injure/kill someone, and there's no way to relocate it. Otherwise...leave the dang things alone and let them have their lives, too!!!

Even a rattler...living in the high Sierra mountains we had Rattlesnakes around ever corner....my Dad would grab a shovel and kill them. When I got old enough....I'd grab a pitchfork and 'save/relocate' them... Never had one even strike out at me... emoticon
And in the wild, if you are quiet and listen, they can 'feel' your footsteps long before you are within striking distance and WILL give a warning rattle. Just have to be listening to Nature...some folks can only handle the sound of their own voice, if you know what I mean? emoticon

Re: Maybe a new homstead.


Fortunately, we only have one mildly poisonous snake in Germany, all the rest are harmless.

Queeny: You are right. Some people stomp through nature and don't notice a thing. I like to walk with all my senses open. I hope I'd hear a rattler's warning.

I found myself on the trail of wild boar in a forest where I grew up when visited last year. Fresh traces from their digging in the ground. And then I heard something move in the underbrush. It was May, and I was fairly sure they were having young. I stopped, listened for a bit, tried to sense what was ahead, then decided to turn back and take another track. No need to risk a confrontation, and lots of reasons to leave them in peace.

Wild boar are about the most dangerous animals in German woods. Wolves are gradually slipping back in from Poland, and lynx have been reintroduced, but both lack the ferociousness of a wild sow defending her young.

Smart move....they can be deadly! Well, any momma can. We have to worry about the black bears here and up in the Tetons and Yellowstone, the Grizzly bears. But same thing. Keep your senses open, and don't invade their space... emoticon

Re: Maybe a new homstead.


This one did not happen either emoticon The Goddess sure made that happen quick.. We have others to go look at in the Morrow.

This is getting a little boring, looking at all the junk homes that ignorance and neglect caused to be unattractive. Some of them have been for sale for over two years, with no work done during that time. There are two of the five possibles that look interesting - we will look and see what happens. Fortunately we don't HAVE to buy anything, I am quite content sitting with my lady in the Mack, watching the world go by.

I honestly think that the energies that are pounding in my direction, plus the requested energies of The Goddess, are making faults appear in sellers, as this time, or in properties, as before, so I leave in the realm of the gods to determine what I should or should not buy. I have few needs,,,, I want my OWN shower, sharing with a woman is something I can happily live without doing. A shower that only I use, with nobody else going near would be heaven. The last one I had was in my home prior to me rescuing my lady from her personal hell. She moved in, and took over my bathroom. emoticon

Anyway, I look forward to the next episode of find the homestead.
