Surrounded - Missoula, Montana
Smoke still ringing our valley brought to mind Glenn Kaiser's bluesy song "We are surrounded...by the witness cloud..."
The good news: The corn & cabbages at Benson's Farm still seem to be growing just fine!

Pocket Snake - Missoula, Montana
- W. C. Fields (1880-1946)
Spying this dandy little snake along our walking trail instantly flashed me back to another day about 20 years ago on a trail rife with tree root crannies, when a dear nephew excitedly whisper-yelled, "Auntie! Don't move!"
Of course, being a good auntie, I froze mid-stride - and said nephew reached right between my cranny-straddled feet to pick up a lovely little snake much like this one. (Shudder!)
The same dear boy, at an educational classroom event, volunteered his mum who was 'not afraid to hold the snake' - this one giant-sized and showcased by a professional handler. And - bravo! - Mum did not disappoint!
Ah, the joys of loving fearless boys!
