Stupid snake

While the groovy pad is being built, there are tradesmen whizzing in and out. Tradesmen are not known for careful driving and tend to whiz rather quickly up and down the driveway. At the paddock, we are always concerned for wildlife which doesn’t work well with whizzing cars.
So the other day, I was out and about, productively weeding, when I noticed a snake on the driveway. I went up to investigate and the snake pretty much just stayed where it was. I gave it the once over looking for an injury, but it seemed OK. Then I worked out that due to the slope, the poor bugger couldn’t get much traction on the bitumen. Most of his muscle control was being use to stop him from rolling down the hill. How embarrassing for the poor bugger. So I picked him up and moved him off the driveway. No thank you from the snake, but I’m hoping that he will knock off a rat or two in return for the favour.
