Snake Scare

Hi Everyone,

How was your week.  Did anything exciting happen to you?

It seems every day is exciting at the Sweeney house lately. Wedding RSVPs arrive daily. We feel blessed with the best for all saying yes! And, of course we understand no too…you’ll all be very missed.

Wedding anticipation was not the only exciting thing going on at our house last week though. A frightful occurrence took place Friday afternoon.  Our security cameras rolled as a portion of it unfolded.

Preface –

Do you use the “F” word from time to time?  I do.  Expletives aren’t becoming language, are they?  I explain to my girls that I only use “it” when I’m fearful. Yep, F only slips out of my mouth when I’m scared. It’s comforting, go figure.

Here’s What Happened –

Early Friday afternoon, I was alerted to an event on our front porch. It turned out to be D’Angelo, our dry cleaning delivery man. He was scared…really scared. As he got out of his truck at the bottom of our driveway, he saw a 6ft. black snake moseying its way toward his truck. He bolted to our porch. [Warning: if you’re offended by the “F” word or snakes, do not click the link.] See some of D’Angelo’s reaction here:

I’m guessing D’Angelo felt better when F slipped out of his mouth, the way I sometimes to. Snakes are scary!

Thank you for reading!

Love, Shelley
